PSoC 5LP KitA low-cost platform for prototyping products with the ARM® Cortex®-M3-based PSoC 5LP, with a unique snap-away Programmer and Debugger on the USB connector.
The CY8CKIT-059 PSoC 5LP Prototyping Kit features the CY8C5888LTI-LP097 device from the PSoC 5LP family. PSoC 5LP is the industry’s most integrated programmable SoC, combining high-precision and programmable analog and digital peripherals with an ARM® Cortex®-M3 CPU in a single chip. Process sensor signals with the 24-bit hardware DFB coprocessor, offload traditional CPU tasks to the CPLD-based Universal Digital Blocks and increase system performance with peripheral-to-peripheral DMA controller. Integrate high-precision custom 20-bit Analog Front Ends with the Programmable Analog Blocks including opamps, PGAs, filters, comparators, SAR and Delta-Sigma ADCs and the industry's best CapSense touch-sensing solution.
The kit provides access to all the PSoC 5LP device I/Os in a breadboard-compatible format. It features a micro-USB header for creating prototypes with Full Speed USB 2.0 connectivity. The kit is also designed with a unique snappable form-factor, allowing users to separate the USB connector with the KitProg Programmer and Debugger from the target board to use them independently. Once done with the prototype, you're still left with a handy SWD programmer!
The kit includes Cypress's KitProg Programmer and Debugger. KitProg can program and debug the target PSoC 5LP device via SWD when using PSoC Creator or PSoC Programmer. It supports bridging over USB-UART and USB-I2C interfaces and also provides access to Micrium µC/Probe to read and write memory on the target device. When snapped away, this tiny USB board can be used as a KitProg debugger with any PSoC 3, PSoC 4 or PSoC 5LP device. The KitProg firmware is provided as a bootloader image that can be upgraded to develop custom applications for it.

Comment List
  • Why not try my tutorial?

    Just make the adjustments necessary for the 5LP.

  • I would try the example projects listed as part of PSoC Creator. They are a great way to dig into the features of PSoC 5LP. If you feel adventurous, I would certainly go for look up tables and state manchines ! the best way to leverage PSoC is to use the UDBs to offload the CPU !

  • Just got mine, I'm excited to try it out! I expect it will work well with the development environment like other PSoC dev boards I've tried.


    In my will try to cover as many of the different features of the board as possible, and how easy they are to access in the IDE and configure to do what you want, and how versatile and powerful they seem to be. If there is anything specific anyone would like details on let me know and I will try to include it in my review.

  • Oh Joy!

    Feel free to leverage from my previous work I did with PSoC 4 and Raspberry Pi.

  • Landed on my desk this morning!



  • This product is in such a convenient format for those commencing PSoC development.

    I don't have one and use miniprog3s and PCBs of my own design.


    Although there is a great temptation to just snap the programming board off it is industry best practice to guillotine it off.

  • Awesome!  Looking forward to getting this.  Must get some bits and pieces ready!


    One thing I noticed I can't see the videos on my Android tablet when I was on that over the weekend.  They just appear as spaces! I never noticed before because I watched them on my PC.
