Detailed Review:

This it my review for the Psoc 4 pioneer kit:


At first the Psoc 4 pioneer kit looks very good, i find it a beatiful design and it has a nice red color.

The demo that is on the Psoc 4, is a bit boring. It's a blinking LED that only shows that it's working. I would prefer a demo that is interactive, so you can play a bit with it.

It is quite nice that a few jumper wires and an USB-cable is included in the kit.


For the programming side of the Psoc 4 it was hard for me (a beginner) to get started.

The Psoc creator is a bit complicated, it's not very clear were you need to start.

After doing some research i found this webpage after trying for a while i managed to get the included code programmed on the Psoc;

Here a short video of that :


At last i find the Psoc 4 pioneer kit a great kit, but not for beginners. And if you are (just like me) a beginner you really need to do some research and some trial and error before you really can get the use out of the Psoc 4.


I will keep on trying and will try to build a robot with it.
