Cypress Accelerates Designs For Apple’s All-Digital Lightning Connector With New Development Kit For IPhone, IPad And IPod Audio Accessories

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced the availability of a new development kit that speeds design of digital audio accessories for Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and iPod products. The CY8CKIT-033A PSoC® 3 MFi Digital Audio Development Kit for Lightning includes license-free reference hardware, firmware, and iOS app software, providing the tools to develop MFi (Made for iPod | iPhone | iPad) digital audio accessories that are fully compatible with Apple’s all-digital Lightning connector, which is used for iPhone 5, iPad mini and other new Apple products. The comprehensive reference design enables the quickest path for MFi program licensees to develop consumer products such as speaker docks, headphones and game controllers, as well as music creation devices such as keyboards, mixers, guitar interfaces, microphones, MIDI controllers, and DJ turntables.

The consumer and professional audio markets demand bit-perfect quality, and the Lightning connector advances this trend by upgrading audio from analog to digital. Additionally, accessory developers must design at a breakneck pace to keep up with Apple’s product and software releases. Cypress’s reference design connects PSoC 3 to Apple devices instantly to enable developers to bring concepts to production within a matter of months. The solution is compatible with both Apple’s Lightning and 30-pin dock connectors, and with Cypress’s patent-pending USB audio clock synchronization and recovery scheme, PSoC 3 ensures bit-perfect audio with minimal external components at multiple sample rates (at standard intervals up to 24-bit audio, 48-kHz or 96-kHz sampling rate).

“With the Cypress PSoC 3 MFi Digital Audio solution, Avid was able to bring our Fast Track Solo and Duo MFi products from a concept on paper to full production in less than six months,” said Bruce Yaung, Vice President of Supply and Hardware Technologies at Avid Technology. “Not only was their development kit helpful from a time-to-market perspective, but it delivered the studio-grade digital audio quality our customers expect from Avid products.”
