PSoC6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CM0+ Core)


The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the PSoC 62 MCU and the Murata LBEE5KL1DX Module (CYW4343W WiFi + Bluetooth Combo Chip). The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit features the PSoC 62 MCU: a dual-core MCU, with a 150-MHz Arm Cortex-M4 as the primary application processor and a 100-MHz Arm Cortex-M0+ that supports low-power operations, 1MB of Flash, 288KB of SRAM, 104 GPIO, 7 programmable analog blocks, 56 programmable digital blocks, Full-Speed USB, a serial memory interface, a PDM-PCM digital microphone interface, and industry-leading capacitive-sensing with CapSense. The PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer board offers compatibility with Arduino shields.

The Cortex-M0+ is a primary core on the board’s SoC. It starts first and enables the CM4 core.

For more information about the PSoC 62 MCU SoC and CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT board:

Supported Features

The board configuration supports the following hardware features:

Interface Controller Driver/Component
NVIC on-chip nested vectored interrupt controller
SYSTICK on-chip system clock
UART on-chip serial port

The default configuration can be found in the Kconfig boards/arm/cy8ckit_062_wifi_bt_m0/cy8ckit_062_wifi_bt_m0_defconfig.

System Clock

The PSoC 62 MCU SoC is configured to use the internal IMO+FLL as a source for the system clock. CM0+ works at 50MHz, CM4 - at 100MHz. Other sources for the system clock are provided in the SOC, depending on your system requirements.

Serial Port

The PSoC 62 MCU SoC has 9 SCB blocks 8 of each can be configured as UART interfaces for serial communication. At the moment UART5 on SCB5 and UART6 on SCB6 are configured. SCB5 is connected to the onboard KitProg2’s USB-UART Bridge, SCB6 to P12_0, P12_1 pins on the J3 of the Arduino Uno R3 compatible PSoC6 I/O header.

Programming and Debugging

The CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT includes an onboard programmer/debugger (KitProg2) with mass storage programming to provide debugging, flash programming, and serial communication over USB. There are also PSoC 6 program and debug headers J11 and J12 that can be used with Segger J-Link. A watchdog timer is enabled by default. To disable it call Cy_WDT_Unlock() and Cy_WDT_Disable().

Build the project for CM0+

$ cd samples/hello_world
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ cmake -G"Eclipse CDT4 - Ninja" -DBOARD=cy8ckit_062_wifi_bt_m0 ..
$ ninja

Switch the DevKit into CMSIS-DAP mode using SW3 (LED2 should blink) and flash the board:

$<openocd_path>\bin\openocd -c "source [find interface/cmsis-dap.cfg]" \
   -c "transport select swd" -c "source [find target/psoc6.cfg]" \
   -c "if [catch {program {<zephyr_path>\samples\hello_world\build\zephyr\zephyr.elf}} ] \
      { echo {** Program operation failed **} } \
      else { echo {** Program operation completed successfully **} }" \
   -c "reset_config srst_only;reset run;psoc6.dap dpreg 0x04 0x00;shutdown"

Switch the DevKit back using SW3. Open a serial terminal (minicom, putty, etc.) and connect to the board with the following settings:

  • Speed: 115200
  • Data: 8 bits
  • Parity: None
  • Stop bits: 1

Reset the board and the following message will appear on the corresponding serial port:
