I am starting a new design.

Requirements:

Low power!!!!

BLE

RFID

Energy harvesting -- light, kinetic,

misc digital and analog IO

Looking for eval kit that will allow me to easily and quickly characterize these requirements.

Your thoughts?

Hi Bernard,

You can use the CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT which has a Bluetooth, WI-FI ,simple i/o.

You can refer to the below app note - PSoC 6 MCU Low-Power Modes and Power Reduction Techniques

https://www.cypress.com/file/385936/download

Since most of the chips do not have RFID, you have to interface the sensor to the PSOC device.

Hi Bernard,

You can use the  PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit which will meet your requirements.

You can go through the datasheet of the device -  https://www.cypress.com/file/385921/download

You can also purchase the kit from here - https://www.cypress.com/documentation/development-kitsboards/psoc-6-ble-pioneer-kit-cy8ckit-062-ble

I can see how the PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit will allow me to check out BLE, but what about RFID and energy harvesting? I forgot to mention that I need to check out wifi. I am open to purchasing extra modules to accommodate the additional functionalities. Just need to know which ones and will work with this kit.

Are you looking for standalone WiFi chips or WiFi-BT combo chips?

MuraliR_36​, I am open. I realize the micro in the PSoC® 6 BLE Pioneer Kit has integrated bluetooth, but not wifi. This is one reason I thought AlakanandaB_86​'s response was overly simplistic.

I see the CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT that uses the CYW43012 combo chip. This could work.

Neither of the kits mentioned so far does RFID and energy harvesting directly. Still looking for a kit with least amount of add-ons that will allow me to characterize:

low power,

bluetooth,

wifi,

rfid,

energy harvesting.

simple i/o.

This is all for a quick proof of concept. Once proven we will design a proper circuit.

HI AlakanandaB_86,

Can you recommend a RFID eval setup that would work with CY8CKIT-062-WiFi-BT?

Kind regards.

Hi,

We do not recommend any eval setup from our end.

Depending on the operating voltage(1.7V - 3.6V), current and other specifications of the the PSOC 6 device you can chose a suitable RFID eval setup.
