Cypress Debuts Reliable, Secure Fingerprint Sensing Solution for Mobile Devices Through its Strategic Partnership with IDEX ASA

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in conjunction with its strategic partner IDEX ASA introduced a fingerprint reader solution designed to bring reliable, easy-to-use user authentication to smart phones, tablets, wearable and other mobile devices. The TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader uses proprietary sensing circuitry and a unique touch sensor design to provide best-in-class fingerprint image quality and pattern matching accuracy improving security and delivering a superior user experience. The flexible solution enables designers to create custom home buttons with specialized shapes and sizes or to integrate the sensor into any mobile device's industrial design or home button. Consumers have increasingly embraced fingerprint readers as an alternative to keying in complex usernames, PINs and passwords. Mobile device OEMs and companies that sell via the Internet have gravitated toward the technology as the most secure way to validate a user's identity. Demand for fingerprint readers in mobile devices is forecast to grow at a compound annual rate of 47% through 2019, reaching annual shipments of more than 700 million units. Cypress will showcase its TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader, along with its extensive portfolio of capacitive touchscreen and touch-sensing solutions, at Mobile World Congress 2015 from March 2-5 in Hall 2, Stand 2C26MR at Fira Gran Via in Barcelona. The TrueTouch Fingerprint Reader leverages IP from Oslo, Norway-based IDEX ASA. Cypress announced a strategic partnership with IDEX last year, enabling it to add IDEX's patented SmartFinger fingerprint sensing technology to its extensive portfolio of capacitive touch-sensing solutions. IDEX IP, plus the ability to work with IDEX's qualified sensor partners, will provide Cypress with immediate access to a broad range of global markets.

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Introduces New $10 PSoC 5LP Prototyping Kit Gives Designers Access to Unmatched Processing Power in a One Chip Solution

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. introduced a new, low-cost prototyping kit that gives engineers unprecedented access to design with the powerful 32-bit ARM(r) Cortex(r)-M3 core in Cypress's PSoC(r) 5LP programmable system-on-chip architecture. The $10 CY8CKIT-059 Prototyping Kit delivers PSoC 5LP's ability to reduce systems costs by integrating analog front-ends, digital logic and user interface ICs with the architecture's programmable analog and programmable digital blocks. PSoC 5LP also simplifies power architecture design by supporting the industry's widest operating voltage range of 0.5V to 5.5V. The kit, combined with Cypress's free, easy-to-use PSoC Creator(TM) Integrated Design Environment (IDE) and hundreds of available example projects, enables rapid prototyping of designs and accelerates time-to-market. The PSoC 5LP architecture provides unmatched processing performance with a 24-bit digital filter coprocessor and 24 Universal Digital Blocks -- Cypress's programmable digital blocks containing two programmable logic devices and a programmable data path with status and control registers. A high-performance direct memory access (DMA) controller enables smart peripherals to operate in parallel to the ARM Cortex-M3 core, saving cycles and increasing throughput. PSoC 5LP one-chip solutions are ideal for a wide range of applications, including motor control, digital power management, switch mode power supplies, solar inverters and metering.
