Cypress Semiconductor Corp. launched what it touts as the world's first 2.4GHz Radio-on-a-Chip with a programmable mixed signal array. This new Programmable Radio-on-a-Chip (PRoC) includes two of the company's technologieswirelessusb and psoc mixed-signal array in production volume" target=_blank>programmable system-on-chip (PSoC)in one integrated device.

The CYWUSB6953 PRoC offers access to a general-purpose mixed signal array with four programmable analog and four programmable digital blocks, 8KB of flash program memory storage, 512 bytes of SRAM data storage, and a powerful Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) 2.4GHz radio system. Housed in a compact, 48-pin QFN package, this new product is designed to implement highly-integrated, space-saving, low-cost, wireless systems operating in the worldwide 2.4GHz ISM band.

"The PRoC combines two great Cypress technologies to help make the vision of an 'unwired world' a reality for customers worldwide," said Christopher Norris, VP of the company's Consumer and Computation Division. "It makes it fast, easy and cost-effective to implement WirelessUSB in a myriad of applications by using the powerful, flexible PSoC architecture."

Target applications for the CYWUSB6953 include consumer electronics, home and industrial automation, Human Interface Device (HID), transportation, security and medical systems.

Full production quantities for the CYWUSB6953 are expected to be available in Q3 2005. Pricing is approximately $3.50 each, depending on quantities.
