Cool Product of the Month
January 31, 2011
I had a good talk with Rob Owings at QTI in Boise. He is a long time PSoCographer (It is a new word I just made up) from way back. With such an enduring passion for PSoC he is to be elevated to the status of PSoC Adveturer. Rob from this day forward you shall be know as "Doc SoC"
He set me information about the USB temperature probe his company makes. It uses a CY8C249xx family PSoC and little else. He says they are making a killing selling them for food temp monitoring in buffets and other places with food warmers. Hook it up to anything that is a USB Host and you are measuring temp with a 0.1 degree resolution. It looked so cool I traded with him for a PSoC5 development kit. (It’s a pretty fair deal as I get the kits from the warehouse at night. I sure hope they also don't do thermocouples or I will never hear the end of it.

I plan to show some cool PSoC product once a month. If you designed it and are selling it and you are proud of it, then send it in.
