CY8CKIT-050 PSoC® 5LP Development Kit

Last Updated: 
Jun 10, 2016

The CY8CKIT-050 PSoC® 5LP Development Kit enables you to evaluate, develop and prototype high precision analog, low-power and low-voltage applications powered by Cypress’s CY8C58LP high precision analog device family.

Additionally, this kit supports the PSoC Expansion Board Kit ecosystem as a compatible host platform. This kit is designed specifically for PSoC 5LP development, the PSoC 3 version of the same kit can be purchased from

This kit is designed for analog performance. The kit features a very low noise floor. Care has been taken to separate the analog and the digital domain. Separate regulators are also available and separate ground planes are provided. We have achieved ENOB very close to 20 bits with this kit. Provisions are provided to add an external precision voltage reference, if needed.

Besides the analog, this kit is also meant to demonstrate the low power operation of PSoC 5LP. The PSoC 5LP chip is soldered to the board, this significantly reduces the leakage currents compared to the CY8CKIT-001. Special terminals are provided to enable the boost converter operation without requiring many modifications. Jumpers have been provided to remove power to RS232 converter, potentiometer, to have a single regulator for analog and digital domain, and evaluate the low power operation of PSoC 5LP.

The Kit-050 has an onboard programmer/debugger (Cypress USB chip based), which lets you program the PSoC 5 without connecting Miniprog3. This programmer debugs at a speed of 1.5mHz. The kit also allows the user to program and debug using the Miniprog3.
