PSoC® 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT)

Last Updated: 
Jul 20, 2020

The PSoC® 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the PSoC 62 MCU and the Murata LBEE5KL1DX Module (CYW4343W WiFi + Bluetooth Combo Chip).

Featuring the PSoC 62 Line

The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit features the PSoC 62 MCU: a single- or dual-core MCU, with an Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Arm® Cortex®-M0+, 1MB of Flash, 288KB of SRAM, 102 GPIO, 7 programmable analog blocks, 56 programmable digital blocks, Full-Speed USB, a serial memory interface, a PDM-PCM digital microphone interface, and industry-leading capacitive-sensing with CapSense.

 

Excelon™ Ultra Ferroelectric RAM (F-RAM)

The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit includes a Cypress Excelon Ultra 4Mbit, 108-MHz QSPI nonvolatile F-RAM in an 8-SOIC package, that facilitates instant, local and energy-efficient data-logging at write speeds that are as fast as parallel battery-backed solutions and provides virtually unlimited read/write cycle endurance.

 

TFT Display Shield Board

The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit also comes with a TFT display shield board. This shield board contains a 2.4" TFT display, an audio codec with 3.5mm headphone jack, a light sensor, a 6-axis motion sensor, and a digital microphone.

 

EZ-PD CCG3 Type-C Power Delivery

The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit base board includes a Cypress EZ-PD CCG3 power delivery system. It comes preprogrammed 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 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit baseboard comes with 2 buttons, a 5-segment slider, and a proximity sensor. Using the 4th generation CapSense provided in the PSoC 62 Line, self- and mutual-capacitive-sensing systems can be evaluated with this kit.

 

Murata LBEE5KL1DX Module (CYW4343W WiFi + BT Combo Chip)

The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit features the Murata LBEE5KL1DX module, that provides IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN + Bluetooth, best-in-class power consumption, and enables small form factors for IoT devices.
