Cypress PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit, Available from Mouser
Mouser Electronics has announced that it is now offering the Cypress Semiconductor PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer development kit for the PSoC 6 microcontroller.
The PSoC BLE 6 is a low power, flexible microcontroller with built-in Bluetooth Low Energy wireless connectivity and integrated hardware-based security in a single device for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The device is ideal for these small, low power but innovative products.
The Cypress PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit includes a 2.7-inch e-ink display shield, CapSense® linear slider, proximity sensors, and touch buttons for intuitive operation. The development kit includes Arduino Uno-compatible headers, an onboard Bluetooth antenna, and an onboard programmer/debugger. The development kit offers a complete power solution, integrating a Cypress EZ-PD™ CCG3 Type-C port controller with power delivery and support for rechargeable lithium-polymer batteries, as well as a super capacitor for backup power.
In addition to the development kit, the Cypress PSoC 6 microcontroller will be available shortly from Mouser. It is built on a dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex-M0+ architecture with 40nm process technology, optimized for power and performance. The device is bolstered by CapSense capacitive touch technology to support inventive next-generation user interfaces.
Software-defined analog and digital peripherals allow engineers to create custom analog-front-end (AFE) functions. The microcontroller also offers multiple wired and wireless connectivity options like USB and Bluetooth 5, supporting internet- and cloud-based services. Prizing flexibility and innovation, the PSoC 6 microcontroller facilitates the next generation of IoT application development with the PSoC Creator™ integrated development environment and numerous ecosystem partners.
The industry is seeing a major element of growth in IoT and IIoT related products. Mouser are trying to promote the fact that they are able to fully support these and all their products as they aim to provide a comprehensive level support to their customers. Not only do they have a huge level of inventory to support supply of the product (over 820 000 line items), but sufficient to supply the level of service they need.
