Cypress, RS Components and Zerynth bring Python programming to IoT

Here's another tidbit from the Embedded World show. Zerynth have ported their Virtual Machine to PSoC 6 and it opens the world of IoT to millions of Python programmers. And we are not talking about a watered-down pythonesque implementation here - hey, if there is such a thing as a pythonista then there needs to be pythonesque as well - you get all the language features plus embedded-friendly extras like a hybrid C/Python interface, real-time multi-threading, and support for MCU peripherals. It sounds so good I am tempted to take my PSoC to the nearest coffee shop to hang out with the millenials!

 

Cypress and Zerynth demo-python on PSoC 6 for IoT and blockchain applications

We ran a demo of the VM enabling Blockchain transactions at Embedded World in conjunction with RS Components. Both boards were running a cloud dashboard displaying temperature and humidity. Pressing a CapSense button on either PSoC kit triggered a secure IoT transaction that updates the dashboards. Here is my friend Matthew explaining how it all works at the show. He's the guy in a blue shirt trying to make it look like his feet don't hurt after 8 hours at his demo station!

Unlike Matthew, the demo ran like a champ all week. We are really excited about enabling Python on PSoC devices (joking about millenial programmers aside) because it's so easy to get people started. We hope to continue working closely with Zerynth and RS on their quest to bring Python to the edge of IoT.
