German distributor Rutronik has developed a complete development kit for the PSoC62 microcontroller from Infineon with hardware and firmware.
The RDK2 kit allows a proof of concept of a design to be created quickly to speed up the time-to-market of products.
The modular toolkit uses the dual core PSoC62 microcontroller from Infineon Cypress and is aimed at applications in the Internet of Things, Industrial IoT (IoT, IIoT), Smart Wearables, and Smart Home.
The butterfly design of the board allows improved handling with user-friendly access to the Arduino connectors and reduced interference from electromagnetic influences, especially with RF IoT Arduino Shields. For testing the analog-to-digital conversion, an integrated potentiometer is available. A special feature is that users have access to all pins of the PSoC62 via the Arduino headers. Additionally, a capacitive sensing technology called Cap Sense is included. It enables a touch surface that serves as a slider.

"The RDK2 has the advantage that the development of products is faster. It offers numerous useful features as well as interfaces and has exceptional flexibility also in terms of application options. All the components we use are available in Rutronik's portfolio," said Stephan Menze, Head of Global Innovation Management.
The PSoC62 microcontroller has a dual-core ARM Cortex M4 and M0+ cores for secure edge computing and cloud applications as well as an integrated power management IC for SMPS and all connected power supplies.
"Infineon welcomes the decision by Rutronik to implement the powerful PsoC62 microcontroller as the core of their newly developed RDK2 board. With the PSoC 6 microcontroller family, Infineon offers a platform for IoT applications that enables connectivity, increased computing power, and security at low power consumption as well as cost. We continue to trust Rutronik's service and
