Mouser Electronics is now stocking the PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit that enabled designers to begin innovating with the PSoC 6 microcontroller from Cypress Semiconductor. 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 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 kit includes Arduino Uno-compatible headers, an onboard Bluetooth antenna and an onboard programmer/debugger. The 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 supercapacitor for backup power.

Cypress PSoC 6 microcontroller is built on a dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex-M0+ architecture with 40 nm 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. Pricing flexibility and innovation, the PSoC 6 microcontroller facilitates the next generation of IoT application development with the PSoC Creator™ integrated development environment (IDE) and numerous ecosystem partners.
