LONDON, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Premier Farnelland Cypress Semiconductor Corp . (NASDAQ: CY) announced today
that customers can now pre-order the newPSoC® 4 Pioneer Development Kitfrom
element14. The powerful new kit costs only $25, and lets designers discover
the capabilities of the new PSoC 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture,
which combines Cypress'sbest-in-class PSoC analog and digital fabric with
ARM®'s power-efficient Cortex™-M0 core.

The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kitis highly expandable. It includes connectors for
Arduino-compatible shields and Digilent®PMOD™daughter cards, enabling
customers to pick from a variety of third-party expansion boards. In addition,
an onboard PSoC 5LP device serves as the programmer and debugger, eliminating
the need for external programmers.

"PSoC 4 is a game-changing product that marries PSoC's unique programmable
analog and digital fabric with the powerful, economical ARM Cortex-M0
processor," said John Weil, senior director of PSoC Marketing for Cypress.
"This new PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is the perfect development platform for this
architecture because it provides tremendous functionality at a low price.
We're very pleased to partner with Premier Farnell to help satisfy pent-up
demand for this product from customers who want to be among the first to try
PSoC 4."

"The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is exactly the type of innovative product that our
customers want: flexible, cost-effective and expandable with open-source
architectures," said David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell. "We are
extremely pleased to collaborate with Cypress to introduce this new product to
the market and excited about the opportunities this versatile new product
brings to the design engineers. As the first channel partner taking pre-orders
for this kit, we're expecting it to be in very high demand by designers

The new PSoC 4 device class will challenge proprietary 8-bit and 16-bit
microcontrollers (MCUs), along with other 32-bit devices. 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.A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral
functions, and"future-proofs" designs, enabling designers to transform
resources on-the-fly.
