We recommend the CY3210-PSoCEval1 as a better alternative for most customers.

The CY3270 PSoC FirstTouch Starter Kit provides a quick, easy, and affordable way to evaluate the integration, flexibility and real mixed-signal programmability of PSoC programmable system-on-chips.


Please visit the Getting Started with PSoC 1 page which will guide you through your first steps. It provides basic information about software, technical documentation, training and support infrastructure.

Hardware Description:

Without writing or debugging a single line of C or assembly code, you can experience the power of PSoC devices performing the following four out of the box designs with two thumb-drive form factor boards:

  • CapSense Touch Sensing controlling the color of LEDs
  • Temperature Sensing controlling the color and blinking rate of 3 LED and the sound of a buzzer
  • Light Sensing controlling the intensity of a LED
  • CapSense Proximity Sensing controlling the color of LEDs
Other features optimized for PSoC evaluation are as follows:
  • Additional designs possible utilizing above sensing and control functionality
  • Functional pins are accessible for further evaluation and development
  • Detachable multifunction expansion card enables adding the kit to system boards
  • USB connectivity for convenient plug and play operation
