  • The BLE Pioneer 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 v4.2 specification has been abstracted into the new BLE Component in PSoC Creator, allowing for easy drag-and-drop designs.
  • The 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.

Lowest System Power:

  • The BLE Pioneer 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.
