Thermal management is a mission-critical function for system reliability. The race to build higher performance systems is fueling the need to dissipate more heat per square inch of board space. The demand for energy efficient products and “always-on” cloud computing systems is driving the need to provide more advanced features such as hardware-based fan control, automatic noise reduction, and predictive fan failure algorithms.
Cypress’s Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC) is a unique programmable architecture that allows system designers to do more with less. PSoC offers the best-in-class performance - hardware and/or firmware control for up to 16 fans, support for the largest number of analog and digital temperature sensors, thermal zone management algorithms, EEPROM based fault logging and predictive fan failure algorithms - perfect for designing systems to meet ever-increasing reliability standards. PSoC’s ability to integrate disparate analog and digital functions allows all this and more, while lowering your BOM costs.
