Clicker 2 for PSoC® 6 is a compact development kit with two mikroBUS™ sockets for click board connectivity, an ideal solution for rapid development of custom applications. It is equipped with the PSoC® 6, a dual-core 32-bit CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 Microcontroller Unit (MCU). This powerful device is a combination of ARM® Cortex™ based dual-core MCU with low-power flash technology and digital programmable logic, programmable analog resources, industry-leading CapSense® technology, and other standard communication and timing peripherals. One of the key features of this MCU is the support for the BLE 5 compliant wireless connectivity. Supported by the PSoC® Creator and equipped with the KitProg2 compatible onboard programmer, this board is the ultimate development platform for building portable and IoT applications in the entire range of Clicker 2 products.
Thousands of possibilities with click boards. With two mikroBUS™ sockets on clicker 2, you can take advantage of the huge potential of click™ boards. Blend different functionalities together and come up with new and original inventions. That’s just two clicks and your project is half-way done. Go ahead and play with a few ideas right away.
Power Management. Clicker 2 for PSoC® 6 is equipped with the LTC3586, a high-efficiency USB power manager, and battery charger, featuring the proprietary PowerPath™ and Bat-Track™ technologies, from Linear Technology. The LTC3586 power manager takes care of all the power options of the Clicker 2 for PSoC® 6, providing stable and low ripple voltage outputs for all parts of the board while ensuring proper Li-Po battery charging conditions. The power manager IC allows charging of the Li-Po battery while the Clicker 2 for PSoC® 6 board is connected to the USB port of the computer.
Programming. The programming can be done using the PSoC Creator IDE or stand-alone PSoC Programmer software application. The onboard KitProg2 compatible programmer is automatically detected by the software when Clicker 2 for PSoC board is connected, with no additional configuration steps required. PSoC Creator IDE and PSoC Programmer software applications are available for download from the Cypress official download page, as well as from the download links, below
PSoC® 6, dual-core 32-bit CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 Microcontroller
The CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 MCU has unparalleled flexibility and quite a large number of pins, thus offering two completely independent mikroBUS™ slots, with no shared pins. Two mikroBUS™ sockets provide the standardized set of communication pins, such as the UART, SPI, I2C, as well as PWM, a pair of GPIOs, and analog input pins.
Powering Your Inventions
Focus on your main idea because clicker 2 will take care of the details for you: your prototype already has a power management system in place. The onboard LTC3586-1 IC will provide 3.3V or 5V to the clicks. It turns the USB port into a battery charger. For convenience, clicker 2 for PSoC® 6 features a reset button and an ON/OFF switch (you can also connect an external ON/OFF switch).

Expanding Your Ideas
No idea is too big for clicker 2. Let your train of thought lead you anywhere. Consider all options, explore all directions. More click boards? Additional electronics? Done and done. clicker 2 has the same pocket-size form factor and the same pair of 1x26 connection pads as mikromedia boards. This makes it compatible with mikromedia shields letting you expand your device any way you want.
