PSoC® 6 Wireless Sensor Network IoT Dev Platform
Cypress, SparkFun, and Digi-Key deliver a joint IoT development platform enabling makers and engineers of all kinds to prototype sensor to cloud solutions easily and quickly
PSoC 6 is Cypress Semiconductor’s MCU family purpose-built for the IoT. PSoC 6 leverages a dual-core microcontroller architecture, with Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex-M0+ cores integrated onto a single chip. With low power, flexibility, and security designed in, PSoC 6 enables next-generation IoT designs.
To get started designing with the PSoC 6 MCU, the PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-BLE) is available. To enable even more dynamic IoT system design, SparkFun has created a PSoC 6 compatible add-on shield that is only available at Digi-Key. Engineers can now design with PSoC 6 and multiple wireless connectivity options, the SparkFun Qwiic Sensor system, and more.
In the age of the IoT, developers all over the world are looking for low-power methods of gathering real-world sensor data to enable end users with intelligent insights. This challenge is made easier by leveraging this joint platform from Cypress, SparkFun, and Digi-Key.
To allow designers to quickly get started with this platform, SparkFun and Cypress have put together a few example projects detailed in the Hookup Guide. As the SparkFun shield is actually compatible with all PSoC MCU Pioneer Kits, an application example has been created demonstrating a smart home/environmental monitoring IoT system.
A sensor node is created leveraging PSoC 4 BLE, the IoT add-on shield, and a Qwiic environmental sensor. Data is then transmitted via BLE to a PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit, which also has the IoT add-on shield and is leveraging an Xbee Wi-Fi module. The environmental sensor data is then transmitted via Wi-Fi to ThingSpeak™ cloud IoT analytics service.
