Lynnwood Washington | Cypress Semiconductor
March 25, 2011
There are over 3500 thousand Cypress Employees and the most important nine or so, of them reside in Lynnwood Washington. I am talking about the PSoC Core Applications group. These guys are the ones that know PSoC3 and PSoC5, inside and out. This means analog, digital, and software. (Takes two years to train them) They are figuring out how to get the most out of PSOC. System limitations? Well they find work arounds. Tool limitations? They write their own! Of course this does not always sit well with other groups in the company that think they control PSoC direction. Of course they don’t care because they are Core guys that solve the tough problems. The upside is that that the customers and FAEs love them. I and not sure what the next great thing will be for PSoC. I know it will start with someone asking one of the core guys, "Can we do that?. I am very grateful that I am 30 years in experience and 6 rungs of the technical ladder away from having to directly competing with them. I have seen many great technical advances in my career and PSoC will be my last great thing. I am envious that these guys are starting their careers with PSoC and they get to see where PSoC goes in the next 30 years. Great work guys! Good luck with the focals!!!!
