Evaluation Type: Development Boards & Tools
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?: None
What were the biggest problems encountered?: Some issues with the manifest data getting corrupted, antenna connector not easy to attach.
The last time I worked with a PSoC device was with the Freesoc2 which was a 5LP device using the
schematic design based PSoC creator software. While it was fun to work in this design environment,
it did have it's limitations.
Not so with the Infineon PSoC 62S2 evaluation kit. With this latest generation PSoC chip
and the Modus toolbox software, the capabilities have significantly expanded. Also with
the Sterling-LWB5+ WiFi/Bluetooth module as well as the Capsense controls, this opens
up many more project areas to explore.
The kit came with the development board, quickstart guide, USB cable, jumper wires and
antenna all housed in a very nice padded box.
I downloaded the Modus software package and connected the board by USB to the
The board was preloaded with the Hello World application which
was your standard flash the LED and print the hello world message in the terminal.
The next step was to load another example project into the Eclipse IDE,
compile the code and upload to be board. This time it would be one
that not only controlled the LED, but used the Capsense touch controls to do it.
For the third application, I wanted to make use of the Sterling-LWB5+ module that was included with this
development board. I chose the WiFi Scan application from the examples in Project Creator. This was
a much more complex example, and the very long compile time indicated this.
I did have some difficulty getting the antenna connection to the WiFi module, so
I ran it without it connected, seems to pick up the local access points just fine.
This was a very nicely put together kit. There were more than adequate
technical resources to call on, thanks to Infineon.
The amount of interface connections and jumper selections on this board
were astounding. Even the addition of rubber feet on the bottom of the board
show the amount of forethought from the manufacturer.
Yes, i do for some reason miss the simple schematic layout of PSoC Creator,
perhaps that's an added application for the Modus toolbox in the future, but for now,
I think Infineon got this one pretty good.
