PSoC 4 leverages the PSoC Creator integrated design environment. The IDE’s easy-to-use graphical interface enables designers to drag and drop pre-characterized, production-ready analog and digital IP blocks—PSoC Components—into a single PSoC device to create customized, feature-rich, and highly differentiated end products. Cypress’s platform solution—PSoC 4, PSoC Creator and PSoC Components—simplifies and accelerates the design process, reduces bills of material, and provides extraordinary system value.MCUs Can’t. PSoC Can. PSoC solutions bring the flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC to embedded designs without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC integrates configurable analog and digital circuits with an on-chip microcontroller, reducing component count and simplifying revisions. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions, accelerating cycle time and improving quality while reducing board space, power consumption, and system cost. PSoC “future-proofs” designs, protecting them against last-minute specifications changes. It enables firmware-based changes at any point in the design cycle—even out in the field. All PSoC devices are dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly and to execute tasks with fewer ICs. For more information, please visit www.cypress.com/psoc.
