Cypress PSoC 3, PSoC 5

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has announced two new architectures in its programmable SoC (PSoC) platform that will increase performance and extend the programmable analog and digital embedded design platform, delivering improved time-to-market, integration and flexibility across 8-, 16-, and 32bit applications.

The new programmable analog and digital embedded design platform is powered by the PSoC Creator Integrated Development Environment, which introduces a schematic-based design capture along with fully-tested, pre-packaged analog and digital peripherals easily customizable through user-intuitive wizards and APIs to meet specific design requirements. PSoC Creator enables engineers to design the way they think, thus shortening time-to-market.

The programmable analog and digital peripherals in PSoC 3 and PSoC 5, along with new high performance 8- and 32bit MCU subsystems, enable new capabilities such as motor control, intelligent power supply and battery management, human interfaces such as CapSense touch sensing, LCD segment display, graphics control, as well as audio/voice processing, communication protocols, and much more. These new capabilities dramatically expand the markets that PSoC can address, including industrial, medical, automotive, communications and consumer equipment. The total available market for PSoC products is now expanded to over fifteen billion dollars, spanning across 8-, 16- and 32bit applications, as well as precision analog markets.

The new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures include high-precision, programmable analog resources that can be configured as ADCs, DACs, TIAs, mixers, FPGAs, operational amplifiers and more. They also include enhanced programmable-logic based digital resources that can be configured as 8-, 16-, 24- and 32bit timers, counters and PWMs, as well as more advanced digital peripherals such as Cyclic Redundancy Check, Pseudo Random Sequence generators, and quadrature decoders. Designers have a unique ability to customize this digital system through full featured general purpose PLD-based logic available in PSoC 3 and PSoC 5. The new architectures also support a wide range of communications interfaces, including Full-Speed USB, I2C, SPI, UART, CAN, LIN, and I2S.
