PSoC 4



The Most Flexible, ARM® Cortex™-M0 based Low-Cost PSoC® Development Kit

The PSoC®4 Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-042) is an easy-to-use and inexpensive development platform enabling you to create unique designs with the flexibility of PSoC 4. Featuring a member of the PSoC 4200 family, this kit gives you the power of an ARM® Cortex™-M0 combined with the fully customizable analog and digital fabric of the PSoC in the palm of your hands.

The PSoC 4 architecture offers power leakage of 150 nA while retaining SRAM memory, programmable logic, and the ability to wake up from an interrupt. In stop mode, it consumes only 20 nA while maintaining wake-up capability. It has the widest operating voltage range of any Cortex-M0-based device, enabling full analog and digital operation from 1.71V to 5.5V. It also enhances Cypress’s CapSense capacitive-touch sensing technology by offering significant leadership in noise immunity. In addition to capacitive sensing, PSoC 4 targets field-oriented control (FOC) motor control, temperature sensing, security access, portable medical, and many other applications.

Infinitely Expandable

The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit includes connectors for Arduino™ compatible shields and Digilent® Pmod™ daughter cards, enabling you to pick from a variety of third party expansion boards. The board also features a CapSense® Slider, an RGB LED, a push button switch, and more!

Designed for Low Power

The PSoC 4 architecture supports an extremely low-leakage hibernate mode consuming only 150 nA. It features a best-in-class 20 nA stop mode, eliminating the need for external power circuitry for sleep and wake-up control. While in active mode, it provides fully functional analog capabilities from 1.71 – 5.5 V.

Tutorial kits are available for checkout to any student or teacher at the electronic support lab free of charge. These starter kits include everything necessary to learn the basics of the PSoC4 Platform and include sensors, servos, shields and more all combined with an easy, self paced online tutorial to make PSoC4 simple to understand and integrate into your next project.
