This project was created by the Cypress Partner: Zerynth which is an innovative company enabling python development on microcontrollers with their Zerynth Virtual Machine (VM) and their 3rd party IDE, Zerynth Studio.
Project Technology Focuses
PSoC 62 MCU
CYW4343W 802.11n Wi-Fi and Dual-Mode Bluetooth Combo Radio
This project from the Cypress partner Zerynth showcases an interesting use case for cloud-connected edge nodes. Within this project the PSoC 6 MCU is running Zerynth’s virtual machine, thus both it and the CYW4343W can be programmed in Zerynth Studio in python as CY8CKIT-062-WIFI-BT is a supported platform. A Weather Click (hosting the Bosch BME280 Temperature/Humidity sensor) is also mounted on the Pioneer Kit. An AWS IoT based cloud dashboard is setup in the project for two purposes:
Graphing temperature and humidity sensor data transmitted over time. This sensor data is processed on PSoC 6, and then transmitted to the cloud via Wi-Fi
Showcasing transactions (recording the current temperature/humidity) on the Ethereum blockchain. These transactions are initiated by a CapSense button push
