Cypress PSoC 6 BLE Prototyping Kit, delivering Bluetooth LE connectivity to IoT applications
Published: 10 January 2019 - Rachael Morling
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the PSoC 6 BLE Prototyping Kit from Cypress Semiconductor. Offering easy access to up to 36 general-purpose inputs and outputs (GPIOs), the low-cost, breadboard-compatible kit offers a turnkey solution that adds Bluetooth low energy 5.0 connectivity to Internet of Things (IoT) applications, including smart home products, wearables, white goods, and industrial IoT devices.
The Cypress PSoC 6 BLE Prototyping Kit includes a fully certified CYBLE-416045-02 EZ-BLE Creator module based on a low-power, high-performance PSoC 63 microcontroller. The CYBLE-416045-02 module features 1 Mbyte of application flash, along with 32 Kbytes EEPROM area, and 32 Kbytes of secure flash plus a royalty-free Bluetooth LE stack compatible with Bluetooth 5.0.
The Kit provides easy access to 36 GPIOs and to the programmable digital and analog peripherals offered with the module. The kit also includes current-measuring jumpers, a push button, and two LEDs. The PSoC 6 BLE Prototyping Kit features a KitProg2 onboard programmer and debugger with a perforated snap-away design, allowing engineers to use the module independently from the target board. The board also includes a MikroElektronika mikroBUS interface for use with MikroElektronika Click boards, which allow expanded functionality without additional hardware configuration.
