Ultrasonic Parking Assistance System | Cypress Semiconductors
This figure represents an ultrasonic parking assistance system(UPAS) with the implementation of a four-channel ultrasonic distance measurement system using PSoC. The implementation in the block diagram measures the distance between the ultrasonic transducers and any nearby objects. The system must provide the distance measurement to the rest of the vehicle to be used as desired.
PSoC offers more integration than any standard MCU helping reduce BOM, improve quality and time to market.
AN76530 describes how to use PSoC® 1 devices to build a four-channel ultrasonic distance measurement system for ultrasonic parking-assistance applications (UPA). This application note explains how Cypress’s PSoC is the best fit for UPA applications; it includes an example project and reference hardware design.
