Development kit for Cypress PSoC 4

29 May 2013 Design Automation

Premier Farnell and Cypress Semiconductor announced that customers can now pre-order the powerful new PSoC 4 Pioneer development kit from element14.

The kit allows designers to discover the capabilities of the new PSoC 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines Cypress’s PSoC analog and digital fabric with ARM’s power-efficient Cortex-M0 core.

The new PSoC 4 device class aims to challenge proprietary 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers, along with other 32-bit devices. Cypress’s platform solution comprising 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 function and future-proofs designs, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly.

The PSoC 4 architecture features power leakage of just 150 nA while retaining SRAM memory, programmable logic and the ability to wake up from an interrupt. In addition to capacitive sensing, PSoC 4 targets field-oriented control motor control, temperature sensing, security access, portable medical and many other applications.

The PSoC 4 Pioneer kit is 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.
