PSoC 64 Secure Boot, Wi-Fi / BLE Pioneer Kit

The "PSoC® 64 Secure Boot" Wi-Fi Bluetooth Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-064B0S2-4343W) is a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the "PSoC 64 Secure Boot MCU" and the Murata Type 1DX Module (CYW4343W Wi-Fi + Bluetooth Combo Chip).


The "PSoC 64 Secure Boot" Wi-Fi Bluetooth Pioneer Kit has been designed for users to develop next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) applications. It comes with the "PSoC 64 Secure Boot MCU", which provides IoT developers with an ultra-low power, flexible and secure MCU architecture. User's can choose from the various combinations of power, performance and peripherals provided by the PSoC 64 MCU architecture, to enable features such as extended battery life, small form factors, and security for connected devices. This kit also comes with a Murata LBEE5KL1DX Module (based on the CYW4343W), which provides robust and reliable Wi-Fi AND Bluetooth connectivity in one chip.

The "PSoC 64 Secure Boot" Wi-Fi Bluetooth Pioneer Kit provides an Arduino™ UNO V3 header, enabling plug and play of various shield boards to broaden the user's development scope. It comes with an on-board debugger/programmer (KitProg3) to easily debug and program the target device. In addition, software libraries and code examples are provided to help user's along with their development process.

Board Setup

  1. SECURE PROVISIONING: In order to use this PSoC 64 kit, you must first securely provision the kit. Please refer to the PSoC 64 Secure MCU Secure Boot User Guide to provision the kit. Refer to Section 3: Mbed OS Provisioning Flow

Building the Mbed OS Blinky Application

After you have securely provisioned the kit, you can build the Mbed OS Blinky application. Please refer to the "PSoC 64 Secure MCU Secure Boot" User Guide.

This is a summary with simple steps to get started using Mbed CLI:

pip install cysecuretools                                          # optional, if not installed before
mbed import
cd mbed-os-example-blinky
cd mbed-os/targets/TARGET_Cypress/TARGET_PSOC6/TARGET_CY8CKIT064B0S2_4343W/
cysecuretools -t cy8ckit-064b0s2-4343w init
cysecuretools -t cy8ckit-064b0s2-4343w create-keys
cysecuretools -t cyb06xxa -p policy/policy_single_CM0_CM4.json re-provision-device
cd ../../../../..
mbed compile -t GCC_ARM -m CY8CKIT064B0S2_4343W -c
