CY8CKIT-024 CapSense Proximity Shield

Last Updated: 
Jul 16, 2019
This kit guide provides details on the kit (CY8CKIT-024)contents, hardware, schematics, and BOM. This kit is intended to demonstrate the proximity-sensing capabilities of the CapSense technology in Cypress PSoC® products.

The CY8CKIT-024 CapSense® Proximity Shield is an Arduino™-compatible evaluation platform for CapSense-based proximity sensing solutions. The shield is designed to work with all of the Cypress PSoC Pioneer kits.

Industry's Best Capacitive Proximity Sensing Solution

The CY8CKIT-024 CapSense Proximity Shield enables you to evaluate the proximity sensing capabilities of Cypress's industry-leading CapSense solutions. Designed to work with the Cypress PSoC Pioneer kits, you can evaluate advanced proximity sensing features including Liquid Tolerance, Wake-On-Approach and Gesture Detection using the 5 proximity loops on the CY8CKIT-024.

Support for 3D Gestures

With the CY8CKIT-024 CapSense Proximity Shield, Cypress is taking proximity detection to the next level, by providing users with three dimensional gesture recognition capabilities. The example projects shipped with the shield provides users with the ability to measure proximity in the X, Y, and Z directions.

Leverage the PSoC 4 Architecture

PSoC 4 is Cypress's newest ARM-based PSoC, featuring the low-power Cortex-M0 core combined with PSoC's unique programmable mixed-signal hardware IP, resulting in the industry's most flexible and scalable low-power mixed-signal architecture. The CY8CKIT-024 is designed to work with the Cypress PSoC Pioneer kits (CY8CKIT-040 and CY8CKIT-042) allowing you to prototype advanced systems which feature proximity sensing capabilities (for e.g. a motor control system which is controlled by gestures).
