These Halloween images from our CapSense team were too fun not to share.  The CapSense team is working on a scary good deal for CapSense parts right now so check out Cypress.com in the next couple of days for more details.  

 

I've uploaded these images to Imgur in a couple of resolutions for phones, tablets, and desktop wallpaper.  You can look at the entire album on Imgur here. The image below link directly to the iPhone and Desktop versions.  If you'd really like to see one of them in a different size, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

 

               

 

Happy Halloween!

Please join Kendall Castor-Perry on Wednesday, October 22 at 1:00 p.m. ET (10:00 a.m. PT) for an Ask The Experts session over at Analog Planet. Kendall is running a series of mini-blog posts over at Planet Analog to get everyone ready for the session.  To get ready for the session, he wants to get you thinking about the following tradeoffs: Time or Frequency? Narrow or Broad? Analog or Digital.

Cypress released PSoC Creator 3.0 SP2 this week.  If you're currently using PSoC Creator 3.0 SP1, please upgrade to SP2 as soon as you are able as it is a mandatory update to PSoC Creator Service Pack 1.  This release updates several components and component datasheets within PSoC Creator.  

 

As described in Knowledge Base Article KBA941159 (www.cypress.com/go/kba94159), several components were inadvertently updated without version number changes in SP1. Because of this, the following components are obsolete in SP2 and have been replaced by a new component version.  

Obsolete Component Version New Component Version
Fan Controller v3.0 Fan Controller v3.10
ILO Trim v1.0 ILO Trim v1.10
Power Monitor v1.50 Power Monitor v1.60
Resistive Touch v1.20 Resistive Touch v1.30
SPI Slave v2.40 SPI Slave v2.41
Voltage Fault Detector v2.20 Voltage Fault Detector v2.30
Voltage Sequencr v3.20 Voltage Sequencer v3.21

 

 

The following components have also been updated as follows:
  • ADC_DelSig 3.10 - This component was updated to correct the Buffer mode parameter.
  • cy_boot 4.11 - This component was updated to fix the CySysFlashWriteRow() function PSoC 4000, PSoC 4100, and PSoC 4200 devices. The function would not a write row with new data whose lowest 32-bits of the checksum was equal to zero.
  • MDIO_Interface 1.20 - This component was updated to correct a failure in Basic mode.
  • Pins 2.5 - This component was updated to address a firmware bug.
  • QuadDec 2.40 - This component was updated to fix the QuadDec_Enable() and QuadDec_SetCounter() APIs.
  • Timer 2.60 - This component was updated to fix the ReadCounter() API function.

We are thrilled to find out that our mechanical button replacement solution, CapSense MBR3, has been selected as one of the finalists for Product of the Year for the 2014 Elektra Awards. Cypress has always been a leader in user-interface technologies. We've been there since the beginning and we are continuing to develop technologies and solutions that will help our customers design better products with enhanced user-interfacing capabilities.  

 

"Cypress's CapSense technology is the number one capacitive sensing solution in the market and this nomination validates our continued leadership in low power and high performance digital and analog applications," said John Weil, Vice President of Marketing for PSoC and CapSense at Cypress. "Our MBR3 solution is a high performance digital and analog technology that produces true liquid tolerance, glove touch, and robust proximity sensing."

 

The award event will be held Wednesday, November 26th at the Lancaster London. This nomination aligned perfectly with our recently announced promotion: Mechanical Button Replacement with CapSense MBR3 at 25 cents for a 10 button 16-SOIC part.

PSoC 4 offers a tremendous amount of programmability in a single-chip solution at price points as low as $1. Based on the low-power ARM® Cortex M0 architecture, PSoC 4 offers many compelling advantages to designers. But despite the robust PSoC Creator software and 24x7 support that comes with every device, many designers still find the idea of learning a new platform daunting.

Cypress has taken many steps to alleviate this concern, and is, today, highlighting two easy-to-read app notes that take the guesswork out of designing with PSoC.  PSoC® 4100/4200 Hardware Design Considerations (AN88619) gives designers a primer on the device and how it works, while Getting Started with PSoC® 4 (AN79953) explores the PSoC 4 architecture and development tools, and shows users how to create their first project using the PSoC Creator integrated design tool.
