Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced the availability of an evaluation kit for its WirelessUSB LP 2.4GHz radio SoC, which is now in full production. The CY3630 evaluation kit includes a multi-configuration microcontroller (MCU) socket, radio modules, LCD displays, a large prototyping area and MCU programming software. The kit also includes four firmware tutorials as well as a wireless range demo.

According to Cypress, the product enables interference immunity, low bill-of-materials costs, higher data rate applications, and faster time-to-market for keyboards, mice, gaming devices, presenter tools and remotes, as well as other simple, multi-point-to-point wireless applications. It operates between 1.8V and 3.6V. The device uses Cypress's direct sequence spread spectrum technology to offer interference immunity for a 2.4GHz radio system.

The CY3630 includes the following items: MCU modules for driving the radio; an emulation module for in-circuit debugging; WirelessUSB LP radio modules for prototyping and evaluation; MiniProg Programmer for in-system serial programming of Cypress flash MCUs; LCD modules to display application data and provide user feedback; and CD-ROM with kit documentation, tutorials and sample firmware.

The evaluation kit is currently available and is priced at $250.
