PSoC® 6-BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) | Cypress Semiconductor
PSoC® 6-BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE)
The PSoC® 6-BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the PSoC 63 Line.
Featuring 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, a serial memory interface, a PDM-PCM digital microphone interface, and industry-leading capacitive-sensing with CapSense™.
E-Ink Display Shield Board
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.
EZ-PD™ CCG3 Type-C Power Delivery
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.
Bluetooth Low Energy Made Easy
The PSoC 6-BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard features an on-board antenna to develop Bluetooth Low Energy designs. Designing a wireless system is easy when using the Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 compliant peripheral.
ModusToolbox® Software Suite
ModusToolbox provides support for design and development of the PSoC 6-BLE Pioneer Kit. To find out more, please visit the ModusToolbox page. For code examples, please visit the Cypress' GitHub Repository or the New Application Wizard in ModusToolbox.
