PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE)

Last Updated: 
Jul 20, 2020

The PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the PSoC 63 Line.

Featuring the PSoC 63 Line

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit features the PSoC 63 Line: a single- or dual-core MCU, with an Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Arm® Cortex®-M0+, 1MB of Flash, 288KB of SRAM, 78 GPIO, 7 programmable analog blocks, 56 programmable digital blocks, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a serial memory interface, a PDM-PCM digital microphone interface, and industry-leading capacitive-sensing with CapSense.

 

E-Ink Display Shield Board

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit also comes with an E-ink display shield board. This shield board contains an ultra-low-power 2.7" E-ink display, a thermistor, a 6-axis motion sensor, and a digital microphone.

 

EZ-PD CCG3 Type-C Power Delivery

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit base board includes a Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 power delivery system. It comes pre-programmed and can deliver power from a Type-C port to an on-board header, while simultaneously charging a 3.7-V lithium-ion polymer battery. In addition, the power delivery system can provide power to a Type-C peripheral such as a cell phone with power derived from an external source.

 

Industry-Leading CapSense

​The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard comes with 2 buttons, a 5-segment slider, and a proximity sensor. Using the 4th generation CapSense provided in the PSoC 63 Line, self- and mutual-capacitive-sensing systems can be evaluated with this kit.

 

BLE Made Easy

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard features an on-board antenna to develop BLE designs. Designing a wireless system is easy when using the BLE 5.0 compliant peripheral.

 

ModusToolbox® Software Suite

ModusToolbox provides support for design and development of the PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit. To find out more, please visit the ModusToolbox page. For code examples, please visit the Cypress' GitHub Repository or the New Application Wizard in ModusToolbox.

This kit is shipped with KitProg2 installed. The ModusToolbox software requires KitProg3. Before using the kit with ModusToolbox, ensure that the kit is upgraded to KitProg3. The tool and instructions are available in the Firmware Loader GitHub repository.

Mbed SDK Support
