Cypress's New PSoC® Creator™ 3.0 IDE Simplifies Concurrent Hardware And Software Design With PSoC 3, PSoC 4 And PSoC 5LP Architectures

Stocks in this article: CY

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today introduced version 3.0 of its PSoC® Creator™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE) for the PSoC 3, PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP programmable system-on-chip architectures. Based on customer requests, Cypress developed PSoC Creator 3.0 to reduce the compiled code size, include significant improvements to the integrated firmware editor, and allow for export to top ARM ® IDEs. PSoC Creator 3.0 expands the capabilities of PSoC solutions, simplifying concurrent hardware and software design with the ability to create custom PSoC Components™ using the newly introduced Universal Digital Block (UDB) Editor.

The Windows-based PSoC Creator IDE includes more than 110 PSoC Components—pre-verified “virtual chips” represented by an icon—that users can drag-and-drop into a design and configure to suit a broad array of application requirements. PSoC Creator 3.0 simplifies the creation of custom digital PSoC Components by adding a full state machine diagramming tool for the UDB datapath, and it allows creation with Verilog as in previous versions. Custom PSoC Components facilitate designs for diverse global teams and enable reuse of encapsulated hardware and firmware for future designs.

“Cypress brings silicon quality into our software, running thousands of hours of testing for every release on every feature to make sure they work in customer designs,” said Alan Hawse, Executive Vice President of Software at Cypress. “The new features in PSoC Creator 3.0 – the UDB Editor, export to top ARM IDEs, and the general editor improvements – are based on input from customers. Everything we do in PSoC Creator is trying to help the user get their design problem solved as efficiently as possible – allowing engineers to design the way they think.” Cypress has a new video of Hawse introducing PSoC Creator 3.0 available at www.cypress.com/go/3.0video.

PSoC Creator 3.0 reduces the generated code size for ARM M-class processors, such as PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP, by integrating two optimization tools: the GCC version 4.7 ARM embedded compiler and Newlib-nano libraries. The new release also streamlines coding with improved editor functions, including an auto-complete feature that lets users utilize the dynamically generated software APIs without needing to open datasheets. Developers can now create their hardware schematic designs in PSoC Creator 3.0, automatically generate a full custom datasheet, and then seamlessly export to IAR, Keil, or Eclipse IDEs to develop firmware.
