Cypress Introduces PSoC 1 Devices
Sep 03, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced a new device series in its PSoC 1 programmable system-on-chip family.
In a release, the Company noted that the new CY8C24x93 device series, the lowest-power and lowest-cost devices in the PSoC 1 family, is optimized for battery-powered applications, leveraging a 1.1 A Standby mode and 100 nA Deep-Sleep mode to extend battery life. The family integrates Full Speed USB 2.0 with a Serial Peripheral Interface, enabling streamlined, cost-efficient design with programmable serial bridges.
PSoC 1 devices are supported by Cypress's PSoC Designer Integrated Design Environment. The IDE features pre-verified, production-ready User Modules-free "Virtual Chips" within a PSoC 1 device that replace and integrate multiple competitor chips to create custom solutions. Designers can accelerate system bring-up and time-to-market by dropping in user modules to implement a wide range of functionality, including a Full Speed USB 2.0 slave, an SPI or I2C interface, an incremental Analog-to-Digital Converter, or a Seven-Segment LCD display.
"Our new PSoC 1 family's low-power consumption, small QFN packages and intelligent mix of peripherals make the devices a perfect fit for portable data loggers, USB-to-SPI converters and much more," said Kapil Rai, Senior Director of PSoC 1 Products at Cypress. "Our PSoC 1 devices deliver simplified design and fast time-to-market by leveraging Cypress's PSoC Designer 5.4 IDE and its drag-and-drop user modules."
The CY8C24x93 family comes in 8-, 16-, and 32-KB Flash options.
Sample and production orders are available.
Demonstration kits are available for lead customers by contacting a local Cypress sales representative. Pre-orders for the Development kit start from Sept. 12.
