Infineon CY8CKIT-062-BLE Pioneer Kit
The Infineon CY8CKIT-062-BLE PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit is a hardware platform that enables the evaluation and development of applications using the PSoC™ 63 MCU with AIROC™ Bluetooth® LE. The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit when paired along with the E-ink display shield board, CY8CKIT-028-EPD, forms a powerful combination with its onboard sensors. The kit come with an onboard thermistor, 6-axis motion sensor, and a digital microphone. The PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit baseboard also comes with 2 buttons, a 5-segment slider, and a proximity sensor based on CAPSENSE™ technology.

To set this device up with Edge Impulse, you will need to install the following software:
Edge Impulse Studio can collect data directly from your CY8CKIT-062-BLE Pioneer Kit and also help you trigger in-system inferences to debug your model, but in order to allow Edge Impulse Studio to interact with your CY8CKIT-062-BLE Pioneer Kit you first need to flash it with our base firmware image.
Connect USB to CY8CKIT-062-BLE
Connecting to the CyProgrammer
Then select the base firmware image file you downloaded in the first step above (i.e., the file named
firmware-infineon-cy8ckit-062-ble.hex). You can now press the
Connectbutton to connect to the board, and finally the
Programbutton to load the base firmware image onto the CY8CKIT-062S2 Pioneer Kit.
Flashing the base image
With all the software in place, it's time to connect the CY8CKIT-062S2 Pioneer Kit to Edge Impulse.
Use a micro-USB cable to connect the development board to your computer.
From a command prompt or terminal, run:
This will start a wizard which will ask you to log in, and choose an Edge Impulse project. If you want to switch projects run the command with
Alternatively, recent versions of Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge can collect data directly from your development board, without the need for the Edge Impulse CLI. See this blog post for more information.
Device connected to Edge Impulse.
Edge Impulse projects may be found in Infineon's ModusToolBox. These examples allow you to quickly develop applications around machine learning models and the Edge Impulse SDK. If you need to update the model you may Deploy a C++ library from your project and unzip the resulting downloaded folder into your ModusToolBox application.
To create an example project you must first open a new ModusToolBox application from the File menu
New ModusToolBox Application
Then, you must choose which board support package (BSP) you wish to run your application on. Boards that are officially supported will have Edge Impulse examples.
Lastly, in the Project Creator window, you may select any Edge Impulse listings available for that product and click on Create. Please refer to the ModusToolBox help and tutorials for more information on running applications on your device.

Firmware that is deployed via the Infineon PSoC 63 BLE Pioneer Kit in the Deployment section of an Edge Impulse project come with BLE connectivity. One may download the Infineon AIROC BLE App for your device and connect. Please watch this short video as a demonstration.
With everything set up you can now build your first machine learning model with these tutorials:
