Bluetooth Low Energy Made Easy:

  • The BLE Pioneer Kit supports system-level designs using PSoC Creator which includes numerous example projects to enable Bluetooth Low Energy mixed signal embedded designs.
  • The Bluetooth Low Energy v4.1 specification has been abstracted into the new BLE Component in PSoC Creator, allowing for easy drag-and-drop designs.
  • The kit has been designed to allow for maximum design flexibility enabling Arduino™ shields hardware compatibility and easy to use, FCC-certified PSoC 4 BLE Module.

Low System Cost:

  • The BLE Pioneer Kit provides users easy access to the new PSoC 4 BLE device, while maintaining the familiar CY8CKIT-042 PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit design footprint.
  • The kit includes a CY5670 - CySmart USB Dongle (BLE Dongle) that pairs with the CySmart master emulation tool, converting your Windows® PC into a powerful Bluetooth LE debug environment.
  • The kit has been designed to allow for easy development at a low cost. The kit design and layout allows for customers to easily develop embedded solutions that require both mixed-signal capabilities and a Bluetooth LE radio.

Lowest System Power:

  • The BLE Pioneer Kit has been designed to allow customers to develop low power designs.
  • The kit provides both power measurement jumpers and a coin cell holder and battery for low power evaluation.
  • The kit allows the user to evaluate lower power modes in a wide operating voltage range of 1.7 - 5.5 V.
