Development kit delivers flexible MCU to IoT designs

The PSoC6 BLE Pioneer Kit from Cypress Semiconductor enables designers to begin innovating with the PSoC 6 microcontroller. It is now being shipped by Mouser Electronics.PSoC BLE 6 is a low power, flexible microcontroller with built-in BluetoothLow Energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The easy-to-use kit includes a 2.7in. e-ink display shield, CapSenselinear slider, proximity sensors, and touch buttons for intuitive operation. It includes Arduino Uno-compatible headers, an onboard Bluetooth antenna, and an onboard programmer/debugger.

The kit offers a complete power solution, integrating a Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 Type-C port controller with power delivery and support for rechargeable lithium-polymer batteries, as well as a super capacitor for backup power.

Mouser will soon be offering the PSoC 6 microcontroller. It is built on a dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M0+ architecture with 40nm process technology, optimised for power and performance.

The device is bolstered by CapSense capacitive touch technology to support inventive next-generation user interfaces.

Software-defined analogue and digital peripherals allow engineers to create custom analogue-front-end (AFE) functions.

The microcontroller also offers multiple wired and wireless connectivity options like USB and Bluetooth 5, supporting internet- and cloud-based services.

Prizing flexibility and innovation, the PSoC 6 microcontroller facilitates the next generation of IoT application development with the PSoC Creator integrated development environment (IDE) and numerous ecosystem partners.
