Cypress University Alliance to Host Workshop on New PSoC® 4 Architecture at
the ReCoSoC 2013 Conference on July 9
Truly Scalable, Infinitely Reconfigurable Architecture with Component-Based
Design Methodology is Positioned to Challenge 8-, 16-, and 32-bit Standalone
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 5, 2013
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced the Cypress
University Alliance will hold a PSoC^® workshop at the Reconfigurable
Communication-centric System-on-Chip (ReCoSoC) conference in Darmstadt,
Germany on July 9, 2013. The workshop will introduce the new PSoC 4
programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines Cypress’s
best-in-class PSoC analog and digital fabric and industry-leading CapSense^®
capacitive touch technology with ARM^®’s power-efficient Cortex™-M0 core. More
information and registration is available by at www.recosoc.org.
The truly scalable, cost-efficient architecture delivers PSoC’s trademark
flexibility, analog performance and integration, along with access to dozens
of free PSoC Components™—“virtual chips” represented by icons in Cypress’s
PSoC Creator™ integrated design environment. The new PSoC 4 device class will
challenge proprietary 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), along with
other 32-bit devices. For more information, visit www.cypress.com/go/psoc4.
MCUs Can’t. PSoC Can.
PSoC devices employ a highly configurable system-on-chip architecture for
embedded control design, offering a flash-based equivalent of a
field-programmable ASIC without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC devices
integrate configurable analog and digital circuits, controlled by an on-chip
microcontroller, providing both enhanced design revision capability and
component count savings. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100
peripheral functions saving customers design time, board space and power
consumption while improving system quality and reducing system cost.
The flexible PSoC resources allow designers to future-proof their products by
enabling firmware-based changes during design, validation, production, and
even in the field.The unique PSoC flexibility shortens design cycle time and
allows for late-breaking feature enhancements. All PSoC devices are also
dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to morph internal resources
on-the-fly, utilizing fewer components to perform a given task. More
information about PSoC products is available at www.cypress.com/psoc and free
online training is at www.cypress.com/psoctraining.
