Cypress’s PSoC® 4 Architecture Delivers The Industry’s Most-Flexible, Lowest-Power ARM® Cortex™-M0-Based Devices For Embedded Designs

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today unveiled the PSoC ® 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines Cypress’s best-in-class PSoC analog and digital fabric and industry-leading CapSense ® capacitive touch technology with ARM ®’s power-efficient Cortex™-M0 core. The truly scalable, cost-efficient architecture delivers PSoC’s trademark flexibility, analog performance and integration, along with access to dozens of free PSoC Components™—“virtual chips” represented by icons in Cypress’s PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment. The new PSoC 4 device class will challenge proprietary 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), along with other 32-bit devices. Cypress plans to announce the availability of new PSoC 4 families in the first half of 2013.

The PSoC 4 architecture enhances Cypress’s patented, industry-leading CapSense capacitive-touch sensing technology by offering significant leadership in noise immunity. In addition to capacitive sensing, PSoC 4 targets field-oriented control (FOC) motor control, temperature sensing, security access, portable medical, and many other applications.

“PSoC 4 enables design engineers to leverage the overall trend toward industry-standard, lower-cost ARM-based solutions, the broad availability of ARM software, and the migration of 8-and 16-bit MCU applications to 32-bit solutions,” said John Weil, Senior Director of PSoC Marketing for Cypress’s Programmable Systems Division. “It is the industry’s only fully scalable, infinitely reconfigurable Cortex-M-class MCU with best-in-class analog integration. It can replace entire portfolios of proprietary MCUs and analog solutions, and it is well-positioned to capture significant market share.”

"Inserting the popular Cortex-M0 processor core into the highly-customizable logic and analog circuitry of Cypress's PSoC products makes a very appealing combination for applications with unique I/O requirements that warrant a higher performance processor or the widely-used ARM architecture,” said Tom Starnes, Principal Analyst with semiconductor market research firm Objective Analysis. “The trim PSoC 4 with the highly optimized Cortex-M0 processor makes it easier to step up from 8- and 16-bit or proprietary MCU architectures."
