Bluetooth 5 development kit
31 January 2018, Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless

RS Components is making available the Pioneer Kit development platform for the PSoC 6 MCU from Cypress Semiconductor. PSoC 6 is purpose-built for the IoT with an ultra-low-power, flexible architecture and integrated security features required for next-generation IoT devices.

The CY8CKIT-062-BLE kit has a PSoC 63 device on-board, with Bluetooth 5 ready to go, creating a powerful launchpad for developing IoT devices. Cypress’ 512 Mb Quad-SPI NOR Flash memory and EZ-PD CCG3 USB Type-C controller with power delivery are also available on-board. Smart power options are provided too, with support for a rechargeable LiPo battery and a supercapacitor that can be used as backup power.

Users can also refine the user interface for their new applications by taking advantage of the on-board capacitive-sensing buttons, sliders and proximity sensor based on Cypress’ CapSense technology, and the 2,7” E-ink display shield (CY8CKIT-028-EPD) included in the pack. This board plugs into the platform’s Arduino UNO v3 shield headers, which simplify additional functional expansion leveraging the extensive Arduino ecosystem.

The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit contains everything users need to get their applications up and running, including essential software. There is a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) containing header files, startup code and fully integrated middleware, called the Peripheral Driver Library (PDL). The PDL helps quickly take control of the flexible peripherals of PSoC 6 MCUs.

The new PSoC 6 MCU will also soon be available from RS, for customers to implement their projects developed using the PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit. The PSoC 6 architecture integrates a 150 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 core and 100 MHz Cortex-M0+ to allow compute tasks to be assigned efficiently for optimum performance and power. Active power can be as low as 22 μA/MHz on the ARM Cortex-M4 and 15 μA/MHz on the Cortex-M0+ cores, and dynamic voltage and frequency scaling ensures maximum energy efficiency as the load varies.

The devices also feature a hardware-based trusted execution environment (TEE), which addresses IoT security challenges without requiring external memory or a secure element. The PSoC 6 TEE supports state-of-the-art security features such as secure boot, secure data storage, and advanced cryptographic algorithms.

Leveraging the flexibility of Cypress’ programmable-SoC philosophy, the latest PSoC 6 generation also allows designers to take advantage of software-defined peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces. The new devices also support Cypress’ popular CapSense touch technology, giving the option to provide sleek, smooth user interactions where needed.
