    • Up to 128KB Flash, 16KB SRAM
    • DMA Controller
    • 2x CAN 2.0
  • CapSense® with SmartSense Auto-tuning
    • Cypress Capacitive Sigma-Delta (CSD) controller
    • CapSense supported on up to 55 pins
  • Programmable Analog Blocks
    • 2x Low-Power Comparators (CMP)
    • 4x Low-Power Opamps
    • 1x 12-bit, 1-Msps SAR ADC
    • 4x IDACs (2x 8-bit, 2x 7-bit)
    • 1 - 55 Channel Analog Multiplexer
  • Programmable Digital Blocks
    • 4x Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs)
    • 8x 16-bit TCPWM blocks
    • 4x SCBs: I2C M/S, SPI M/S, UART
  • 2x Controller Area Network (CAN 2.0) Controllers
  • Packages:48-pin LQFP, 64-pin TQFP (0.8-mm pitch), 64-pin TQFP (0.5-mm pitch), 68-pin QFN

 

 

There is also a new development kit featuing the PSoC 4 M-Series.

The CY8CKIT-044 PSoC 4 M-Series Pioneer Kit will be available for $25.

Highlights of the dev kit include:

Make: is proud to announce the launch of the PSoC® Pioneer Challenge, presented by Cypress Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics. 

We're challenging makers to conceptualize and prototype Internet of Things projects using the new PSoC® 4 BLE Pioneer Kit. Projects can be simple or complex. Submissions can range from a simple temperature sensor to a sophisticated home security system, or something unique like a coffee pot that can tweet its own temperature! Instead of complexity, we are looking for projects that technically utilize the capabilities of the solution, that demonstrate those capabilities, and whose overall design is novel and clever. 

One lucky winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Maker Faire 2015 in California to showcase the winning design.

Hurry! The design submission deadline is March 23, 2015 (11:59pm PDT).

Last year, we featured 100 projects in 100 days for the original PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit and shared many ideas with the community.

We're back, kicking off yet another 100 projects effort - this time with the brand new BLE Pioneer Kit, featuring PSoC 4 BLE.

PSoC 4 BLE combines and ARM Cortex-M0 CPU with a Bluetooth Low Energy radio in a single chip. It also carries all the other PSoC programmable technologies, including the analog blocks (opamps, comparators, muxes, ADC), digital blocks (tcpwm, scb, usb), and of course, the industry's best CapSense touch-sensing technology - allowing designers to create the latest wearables and sensor-based gadgets for the Internet of Things.

Adding BLE capabilities to your embedded system has never been easier! With the new BLE Component, you can easily choose from the included BLE GATT Adopted Profiles, or even use the GUI-based tool to create your own, custom Profiles.

Check out the 100 Projects in 100 Days with PSoC 4 BLE blog here. All the projects are hosted in GitHub.

You can download the latest PSoC Creator with support for BLE for free at www.cypress.com/PSoCCreator.
