Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NASDAQ:CY) today announced it will
demonstrate its ARM®-based PSoC® 5 programmable
system-on-chip architecture and PSoC Creator™ 2.0 integrated development
environment (IDE) at Design West 2012 in San Jose from March 27 to 29.
The demonstration in the ARM Connected Pavilion, Booth 1127, will show
how PSoC excels in thermal management applications. Visitors to the
booth can also obtain discounts on PSoC development kits. In addition,
Cypress will present a live technical presentation about the PSoC
technology on Tuesday, March 27 at 2:30 p.m., at the ARM Connected
The PSoC 5 thermal management demo showcases how a PSoC device can
monitor temperature sensors, provide closed-loop fan control and adjust
fan speeds based on the system temperatures, all completely in hardware.
Implementing functions such as this in hardware not only offloads
processing cycles normally performed by the CPU, but also enables higher
reliability hardware-based designs and unique power savings options by
keeping the CPU in sleep modes longer. This capability is unmatched by
any other microcontroller-based product.
The PSoC 5 architecture integrates a 32-bit ARM Cortex™-M3 core with
high-precision programmable analog including 12- to 20-bit ADCs, digital
logic libraries full of drop-in peripherals, best-in-class power
management and rich connectivity resources. The PSoC Creator 2.0 IDE
introduces a unique schematic-based design methodology along with fully
tested, pre-packaged analog and digital peripherals. Users can easily
customize peripherals or build completely new functional capabilities
with PSoC Creator. Further, intuitive APIs help to initialize components
without hours of reading manuals. More information on the PSoC 5
architecture and PSoC Creator is available at http://www.cypress.com/go/psoc5.
“We’re pleased to showcase the PSoC 5 architecture in conjunction with
ARM at Design West,” said Jim Davis, Senior Product Marketing Manager of
Platform PSoC for Cypress. “PSoC offers a unique implementation of the
popular and powerful ARM-Cortex™-M3 processor. We offer designers the
ability to essentially build their own custom ARM-based MCUs with the
peripheral functionality they need, all based on a highly-flexible
programmable analog and digital architecture.”
