    How can I check the current ampere of CY8CKIT-059(PSOC5LP) when I use 5V supply?

      How can I check the current ampere of CY8CKIT-059(PSOC5LP) when I use 5V supply? Is it possible to use 3.3V supply for HC-06 VCC? Device needs power supply from 3.6to 6V.

          CY8CKIT-059 User Guide:

          4.2.3.1 Measure PSoC 5LP Current Consumption
          You can measure the current consumption of the PSoC 5LP device by using one of these methods:
          Method 1:
          1. Separate the KitProg board by 'snapping' the perforated edge between the two boards.
          2. Power the remaining prototyping board via any of the VDD or VTARG terminals.
          3. Place an ammeter in series with the VDD or VTARG connection to measure the current
          consumption.
          Method 2:
          1. Remove the resistor R20 and install a 2-pin jumper in the supplied holes of J4.
          2. Connect an ammeter across the 2-pin jumper to measure the current to the PSoC 5LP device.
          This method can be used either with USB power or with power supplied to one of the VTARG pins
          but not when supplying to one of the VDD pins.

           

           

          Is it possible to use 3.3V supply for HC-06 VCC?  I don't get your question, there has schematic in user guide too, you can check it.
