CY8CKIT-059 Kit

A low-cost platform for prototyping products with the ARM® Cortex®-M3-based PSoC® 5LP, with a unique snap-away Programmer and Debugger on the USB connector.


Now supports KitProg - an Onboard Programmer and Debugger


Featuring PSoC 5LP

The CY8CKIT-059 PSoC 5LP Prototyping Kit features the CY8C5888LTI-LP097 device from the PSoC 5LP family. PSoC 5LP is the industry’s most integrated programmable SoC, combining high-precision and programmable analog and digital peripherals with an ARM® Cortex®-M3 CPU in a single chip. Process sensor signals with the 24-bit hardware DFB coprocessor, offload traditional CPU tasks to the CPLD-based Universal Digital Blocks and increase system performance with the peripheral-to-peripheral DMA controller. Integrate high-precision custom 20-bit Analog Front Ends with the Programmable Analog Blocks including opamps, PGAs, filters, comparators, SAR and Delta-Sigma ADCs and the industry's best CapSense touch-sensing solution.

Design for Flexibility

The kit provides access to all the PSoC 5LP device I/Os in a breadboard-compatible format. It features a micro-USB header for creating prototypes with Full Speed USB 2.0 connectivity. The kit is also designed with a convenient snappable form-factor, allowing users to separate the USB connector with the KitProg Programmer and Debugger from the target board to use them independently. Once done with the prototype, you're still left with a handy SWD programmer!

Low-Cost Programmer

The kit includes Cypress's KitProg Programmer and Debugger. KitProg can program and debug the target PSoC 5LP device via SWD when using PSoC Creator or PSoC Programmer. It supports bridging over USB-UART and USB-I2C interfaces and also provides access to Micrium μC/Probe to read and write memory on the target device. When snapped away, this tiny USB board can be used as a KitProg programmer and debugger with any PSoC 3, PSoC 4 or PSoC 5LP device. The KitProg firmware is provided as a bootloader image that can be upgraded to develop custom applications for it.
