Hi,

I bought the CY8CKIT-042-BLE-A pioneer kit and I would like to use it to send a signal from the module to the computer (Maybe a sensor). I noticed in the training tutorial the BLE (CY8CKKIT) module is mounted on the evaluation board.

Is that necessary after the program has been run or can I removed it like an Arduino?

Also, Is the lithium battery (CR2025) used to power only the BLE module while the USB is powering the evaluation board?

How can I power it with an external power source (different 3V battery)? which pins?

Hi

--> You can either remove the module from the baseboard or you can let it be there on the baseboard after programming. In case if you remove the module from the baseboard, you need to power the VDDD, GND pins present on the bottom left of the module (programming header). Please find the attached image. The voltage source can vary between 1.8volts to 5.5 volts. 

Thanks

Thank you,

Do you know how to transfer the other pins to read from the thermistor like attached?

and what changes do I do to the code if any?

Hi,

Once you remove the module from the board, you can use all the pins available on the module and connect sensors just like the thermistor is connected to the baseboard as shown in the image attached. 

For code, you don't have to do any changes. The only thing to take care of is to note the pins where the sensors are connected to and assign them properly in the PSoC Creator project.

Thanks

Those are the pins assigned in the original code with the evaluation board:

What would change here? I felt that the names of the pins are the same.  I am moving the resistor and thermistor from the evaluation board from the pins [3.0  -   3.1  -   3.2]   to the module to the pins [3.0  -   3.1  -   3.2] on the BLE module (same numbering for the pins).
