In September, 2016, we released our ultra-low-cost CY8CKIT-145-40XX PSoC 4000S CapSense PrototypingKit that enables CapSense-based user interface designs with Bluetooth connectivity. You can now buy this kit from the Cypress website or one of our channel partners.
PSoC 4000S CapSense Prototyping Kit (a.k.a. the butterfly kit) includes a variety of features, such as:
- PSoC 4000S device - PSoC 4 with an ARM Cortex-M0+ core and Cypress's fourth-generation CapSense solution
- Three capacitive touch buttons and a five-segment capacitive slider

- KitProg2, an onboard programmer and debugger that also supports industry standard programming interfaces like CMSIS-DAP and Drag-n-Drop programming
- Access to all the I/Os in a breadboard-compatible form factor
