PSoC® 4 CY8CKIT-049 4xxx Prototyping Kits
The CY8CKIT-049-42xx Prototyping Kit is a low cost prototyping platform for customers wishing to test and develop applications using the PSoC® 4 device family.
The prototyping kit supports PC connectivity through the Cypress USB-Serial controller, which is also used to bootload the PSoC 4 device via UART using the the Bootloader Software Host tool.For more information please see the kit user guide attached for steps and examples.
Low Cost Alternative to Samples
The CY8CKIT-049 Prototyping Kit serves as a low cost alternative to customers looking to sample PSoC 4 devices.This kit provides an open platform and complete access to all of the PSoC 4 device I/O, including default features such as LEDs and a push button.This kit will serve users who are looking to rapidly integrate, develop, and test the PSoC 4 device family with their end design or project.
Supports PSoC 4 Families
The CY8CKIT-049-42xx Prototyping kit supports the ARM® 32-bit Cortex-M0™ CY8C42xx device family.The PSoC 4 devices are the most reconfigurable ARM based processor providing programmable analog and digital blocks with flexible routing and interconnects.The CY8CKIT-049-42xx Prototyping kit is also CapSense enabled as both the CMOD and CTANK capacitors necessary for CapSense and CapSense Proximity designs are loaded by default.
As always the PSoC 4 device family and the CY8CKIT-049-42xx are supported through the completely free development platform PSoC Creator.
Supports USB-Serial Controllers
The CY8CKIT-049 provides customers with a USB PC connection using the Cypress USB-Serial device family (CY7C6521x).The device used on the CY8CKIT-049 is the CY7C65211 configurable USB bridge controller.This USB-Serial device supports USB-UART, USB-GPIO, USB-I2C, and USB-SPI configurations.The device family also supports CapSense button control and USB-IF Battery Charging applications.The CY7C65211 device on the CY8CKIT-049 Prototyping kit is by default a USB-UART serial bridge.The USB-Serial device provides USB-UART communication through a COM port and UART bootloading using the Bootloader Host tool included in PSoC Creator.The CY7C65211 is designed to support the PSoC 4 and to be a development platform for USB-Serial users.The USB-Serial portion of the kit can be removed from the PSoC 4 main board by ‘snapping’ the two boards apart along the perforated edge.The USB-Serial board supports open GPIO and serial communication headers for USB-Serial development.
PSoC Creator IDE
PSoC Creator is an Integrated Design Environment (IDE) which allows concurrent hardware and application firmware design of PSoC 3, PSoC 4, PSoC 4 BLE, PRoC BLE, PSoC 5LP and PSoC 6 systems.PSoC systems are designed using classic, familiar schematic capture supported by over 120 pre-verified, production-ready PSoC Components™.To download the latest version of the IDE, please visit the PSoC Creator Page.
