Bluetooth® Low Energy Pioneer Kit

 The Bluetooth® Low Energy Pioneer Kit enables customers to evaluate and develop Bluetooth Low Energy projects using the PSoC® 4 BLE and PRoC® BLE devices.

Bluetooth Low Energy Made Easy:

  • The CY8CKIT-042-BLE development kit supports system-level designs using PSoC Creator which includes numerous example projects to enable Bluetooth Low Energy mixed signal embedded designs.
  • The Bluetooth Low Energy v4.1 specification has been abstracted into the new Bluetooth Smart Component in PSoC Creator, allowing for easy drag-and-drop designs.
  • The development kit has been designed to allow for maximum design flexibility enabling Arduino shields hardware compatibility and easy to use, FCC-certified PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE modules.

 Low System Cost:

  • The CY8CKIT-042-BLE development kit provides users easy access to the new PSoC 4 BLE and PRoC BLE devices, while maintaining the familiar Pioneer kit design footprint.
  • The development kit includes a USB BLE dongle that pairs with the CySmartmaster emulation tool, converting your Windows® PC into a powerful Bluetooth LE debug environment.
  • The kit has been designed to allow for easy development at a low cost. The kit design and layout allows for customers to easily develop embedded solutions that require both mixed-signal capabilities and a Bluetooth LE radio.

 Lowest System Power:

  • The CY8CKIT-042-BLE development kit has been designed to allow customers to develop low power designs.
  • The kit provides both power measurement jumpers and a coin cell holder and battery for low power evaluation.
  • The kit allows the user to evaluate lower power modes in a wide operating voltage range of 1.7 - 5.5 V.
