As a result, the RDK3 makes a significant contribution to bringing new applications to market much faster.

The RDK3 can be used in a wide range of IoT Applications and Future Markets. These include Advanced Robotics, Smart Building, Smart Factory, Healthcare and Wearables. The heart of the base board is the PSoC 64 Secured MCU with Bluetooth® LE from Infineon. The MCU is ideally suited for low power, secured, battery operated IoT products that require Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) cloud-based applications that require a high level of protection.

The RDK3 features Arduino interfaces and can easily be combined with adapter boards from Rutronik such as the HMS Anybus, Text To SpeechRAB1 - Sensorfusion and RAB2 - CO2.

What's more? The RDK3 offers secure element functionality that can be used to build and authenticate secured applications. Moreover, you benefit from ultra low power with Bluetooth® Low Energy and the RDK3 can be combined with all adapter boards from Rutronik (e.g. RAB1 - Sensorfusion, RAB2 - CO2, Text To Speech).


The RDK3 can be used in a wide range of IoT applications and future markets. These include advanced robotics, smart building, smart factory, and smart farming. At the heart of the base board is the PSoC 64TM Secure MCU from Infineon. The MCU is ideally suited for cloud-based applications that require a high level of protection.

Infineon's PSoC™ 64 Secured MCU

Optimized for Secure, Low Power, Edge IoT Applications

The PSoC™ 6 family is built on an ultra-low-power architecture, and the MCU's feature low-power design techniques that are ideal for battery powered applications. The dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex®-M0+ architecture lets designers optimize for power and performance simultaneously. Using its dual cores combined with configurable memory and peripheral protection units, the PSoC™ 6 MCU delivers the high levels of protection defined by the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) from Arm®.

Designers can use the MCU's rich analog and digital peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as MEMS sensors, electronic-ink displays. The PSoC™ 6 MCU features the latest generation of industry-leading CAPSENSE™ capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable. PSoC™ 6 MCU, paired with Infineon's AIROC™ Wi-Fi, AIROC™ Bluetooth®, or AIROC™ combos radio modules, is the perfect solution for secured, low-power, feature-rich IoT products.

The FL-L family devices are flash non-volatile memory products using:

  • Floating gate technology
  • 65-nm process lithography

The FL-L family connects to a host system via a serial peripheral interface (SPI). Traditional SPI single bit serial input and output (single I/O or SIO) is supported as well as optional two bit (Dual I/O or DIO) and four bit wide Quad I/O (QIO), and Quad Peripheral Interface (QPI) commands. In addition, there are Double Data Rate (DDR) Read commands for QIO and QPI that transfer address and read data on both edges of the clock. The architecture features a page programming buffer that allows up to 256 bytes to be programmed in one operation and provides individual 4 kB sector, 32 kB half block sector, 64 kB block sector, or entire chip erase. By using FL-L family devices at the higher clock rates supported, with Quad commands, the instruction read transfer rate can match or exceed traditional parallel interface, asynchronous, NOR Flash memories, while reducing signal count dramatically. The FL-L family products offer high densities coupled with the flexibility and fast performance required by a variety of mobile or embedded applications. Provides an ideal storage solution for systems with limited space, signal connections, and power. These memories offer flexibility and performance well beyond ordinary serial flash devices. They are ideal for code shadowing to RAM, executing code directly (XIP), and storing re-programmable data.
