The CY8CKIT-003 is now obsolete and not available for ordering. We suggest customers to look into our 3rd party PSoC 3 kits, or our low cost Pioneer Kit.

We have decided to end of life this development kit and are encouraging PSoC 3 users to migrate to our existing CY8CKit-030 development kit or engage with our 3rd party ecosystem for PSoC 3 development kits. A list of the development kits and 3rd party partners are provided here:

We are also encouraging our users to migrate to our popular low cost PSoC 4 Pioneer Development Kit. This kit is available at the following kit web page:

The CY8CKIT-003 PSoC® 3 FirstTouch™ Starter Kit is designed to get you acquainted with Cypress’s PSoC programmable system-on-chip design methodology and architecture

This full-featured starter kit ships with an array of sensors, I/O’s, projects, and software to allow you to evaluate PSoC and see what values the solution can provide you. And, in addition to trying out PSoC 3, gain full access to other features of the FirstTouch Starter Kit like Serial Wire Debugging (SWD), an Accelerometer, a Thermistor, Proximity Sensing, a CapSense® touch-sensing interface, a 12-pin wireless module header, and even 28 general purpose I/O pins (GPIOs). Whatever your need for PSoC may be, the PSoC 3 FirstTouch Starter Kit has the tools to get you started – and hooked – on PSoC.

The Kit-003 has an onboard programmer/debugger (Cypress USB chip based), which lets you program and debug the PSoC 3 . This programmer debugs at a speed of 1.5mHz.


NOTE: As stated above, the purpose of this kit is to get you acquainted with the PSoC 3 architecture and software tools. For full development and evaluation purposes, we recommend you use one of our full development kits: PSoC 3 Development Kit (CY8CKIT-030) or PSoC Development Kit (CY8CKIT-001).
