Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced the
Cypress University Alliance
will hold a PSoC
workshop at the Reconfigurable Communication-centric System-on-Chip (ReCoSoC) conference in Darmstadt, Germany on July 9, 2013. The workshop will introduce the new
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. More information and registration is available by at
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. For more information, visit
MCUs Can’t. PSoC Can.
PSoC devices employ a highly configurable system-on-chip architecture for embedded control design, offering a flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC devices integrate configurable analog and digital circuits, controlled by an on-chip microcontroller, providing both enhanced design revision capability and component count savings. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions saving customers design time, board space and power consumption while improving system quality and reducing system cost.
The flexible PSoC resources allow designers to future-proof their products by enabling firmware-based changes during design, validation, production, and even in the field. The unique PSoC flexibility shortens design cycle time and allows for late-breaking feature enhancements. All PSoC devices are also dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to morph internal resources on-the-fly, utilizing fewer components to perform a given task.
