SAN JOSE, Calif. -- August 28, 2013

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ: CY) today announced a new device series
in its PSoC^® 1 ^ programmable system-on-chip family. 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 µA 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 (SPI), enabling streamlined,
cost-efficient design with programmable serial bridges.

The CY8C24x93 PSoC 1 devices come in multiple small-footprint packaging
options, including a 3x3 mm^2 QFN package. The devices integrate a 10-bit ADC
and two comparators, along with 16-bit timers. The combination of the small
package sizes and analog resources make the family ideal for integrated,
space-constrained system solutions that involve basic analog signal
processing, such as data loggers and thermistor hubs. More information on the
CY8C24x93 family is available at

PSoC 1 devices are supported by Cypress’s revolutionary PSoC Designer™
Integrated Design Environment (IDE). 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 (ADC), 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. The devices
also support a wide operating range, allowing full analog and digital
operation from 1.71V to 5.5V.


The CY8C24x93 family is available starting at $0.50 each for 10,000 unit
quantities. Sample and production orders are available today.

MCUs Can’t. PSoC Can.

PSoC solutions bring the flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC
to embedded designs without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC integrates
configurable analog and digital circuits with an on-chip microcontroller,
reducing component count and simplifying revisions. A single PSoC device can
integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions, accelerating cycle time and
improving quality while reducing board space, power consumption, and system

PSoC “future-proofs” designs, protecting them against last-minute
specifications changes. It enables firmware-based changes at any point in the
design cycle—even out in the field.All PSoC devices are dynamically
reconfigurable, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly and to
execute tasks with fewer ICs. For more information, please visit Free online training is available at
