Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has qualified production of its programmable system-on-chip (PSoC) mixed-signal array technology in the company's high-volume fab 4 production facility in Bloomington, Minnesota. The move is in response to increases in demand for PSoC products in industrial, computing, networking and consumer electronics applications.

The first qualified product, the CY8C21x34, is in high demand for a variety of applications, including capacitive touch sensing interfaces using Cypress's CapSense technology. Production shipments of the device from fab 4 are scheduled to begin this month.

In addition to the qualification of PSoC production in the fab 4 facility, Cypress has expanded capacity in its fab 2 in Round Rock, Texas, where all PSoC manufacturing previously took place.

"Strong PSoC growth in industrial control and computation applications has been compounded in the past two quarters by a very steep acceleration in demand for PSoC products in handheld consumer product," said George Saul, VP of Cypress' PSoC business unit. "The rapid qualification of this additional supply source by our fab teams in Minnesota and Texas allows us to support this increasing global demand," added Saul.
