The PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit from Cypress Semiconductor (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the PSoC 63 Line.
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit features the PSoC 63 Line: a single- or dual-core MCU, with an Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Arm® Cortex®-M0+, 1MB of Flash, 288KB of SRAM, 78 GPIO, 7 programmable analog blocks, 56 programmable digital blocks, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a serial memory interface, a PDM-PCM digital microphone interface, and industry-leading capacitive-sensing with CapSense™.
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit also comes with an E-ink display shield board. This shield board contains an ultra-low-power 2.7″ E-ink display, a thermistor, a 6-axis motion sensor, and a digital microphone.
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit base board includes a Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 power delivery system. It comes pre-programmed and can deliver power from a Type-C port to an on-board header, while simultaneously charging a 3.7-V lithium-ion polymer battery.
In addition, the power delivery system can provide power to a Type-C peripheral such as a cell phone with power derived from an external source.
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard comes with 2 buttons, a 5-segment slider, and a proximity sensor. Using the 4th generation CapSense provided in the PSoC 63 Line, self- and mutual-capacitive-sensing systems can be evaluated with this kit.
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard features an on-board antenna to develop BLE designs. Designing a wireless system is easy when using the BLE 5.0 compliant peripheral and PSoC Creator™ or a 3rd party Integrated Design Environment (IDE).
The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit software, documentation, design files, and code examples can be found in the PSoC 6 Community.
