Looking for Python on PSoC? Take a look at Zerynth

I wrote about Zerynth just after the Embedded World show, where they gave a great demo of their Python virtual machine running an IoT demonstration on a PSoC Pioneer kit.

Like all good demos it was, in essence, really simple. They dropped a MikroE Weather Click board (with a Bosch BME280 humidity/pressure/temperature sensor) onto the Pioneer kit, read values over I2C into the PSoC application, which published the weather data to the cloud wirelessly whenever the CapSense button was pressed. Simple right? Yeah, of course it is simple - but only because Cypress has invested decades of R&D effort and millions of dollars into making the most robust and best performing CapSense and wireless solutions on the planet! But the demo is simple and the Zerynth stuff is cool.

Better still, late last week they formally announced the availability of the software in their excellent Zerynth Studio product. So go download it now!!!!

I am very excited about this collaboration. The Zerynth folk are really easy to work with and their excitement about the product is infectious. I think it has something to do with being young and Italian, and having perfect hair! When they are not making innovative products I imagine they just scoot around Pisa, on Vespas, calling out "ciao" to all the pretty people. Well, maybe that's just what I would do?

In case you hadn't figured it our yet, I've run out of things to write... I want to go learn Python and try it out on my Pioneer kit... and so should you... so get downloading and join the millennials by coding in Python. It'll make you feel years younger. And your hair will look good too.
