Develop sensor-based applications with pioneer kit

21 June 2016

Mouser Electronics is stocking the CY8CKIT-048 PSoC Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit from Cypress Semiconductor.

The programmable system-on-chip (PSoC) Analog Coprocessor offloads sensor processing from the host and reduces overall system power consumption, allowing engineers to evaluate and develop Internet of Things (IoT) applications that require multiple sensors. The PSoC Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit includes six example projects for Cypress’ PSoC Creator integrated design environment (IDE), which engineers can use for developing and debugging projects with the PSoC Analog Coprocessor device.

The Cypress CY8CKIT-048 PSoC Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit contains a Pioneer board with footprint-compatibility with Arduino Uno R3 shields and baseboards, a USB cable, four jumper wires, five headers, a metal disk, and a quick start guide. The Pioneer board features five onboard sensors: a PIR motion sensor, an ambient light sensor, a thermistor, an inductive proximity sensor, and a humidity sensor. The board also includes an RGB LED, two push-button switches, an onboard programmer/debugger and USB-UART/I2C bridge functionality block, and a Cypress F-RAM ferroelectric memory for nonvolatile data storage. The kit supports operating voltages of 1.8V, 3.0V (coin cell), 3.3V, or 5V for flexibility in applications.

The onboard PSoC Analog Coprocessor device integrates a flexible analogue front ends, programmable analogue filters, and high-resolution analogue-to-digital converters (ADCs). The powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0+ based signal processing engine allows host processors to easily fetch aggregated, pre-processed, and formatted complex sensor data over serial communication interfaces.

Engineers can program and debug the PSoC Analog Coprocessor device using the onboard PSoC 5LP. PSoC 5LP is a true system-level solution that provides a 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller, memory, and configurable analogue and digital peripheral functions in a single chip. The CY8C58LPxx family offers a modern method of signal acquisition, signal processing, and control with high accuracy, high bandwidth, and high flexibility.
