Audio on PSoC3 - slowly filtering through...

 Our Blogmeister has been ever so cross with me for failing to post to the Filter Wizard blog for so long. Mea Culpa, but life and work have been taking so much of my bandwidth in the last few months. Now, though, my move over to our group in San Diego is sorted out, and I can try to catch up!

As usual, both audio and filtering matters have been keeping me occupied during those precious hours when I can actually get some work done. We're pressing ahead with some great audio stuff on PSoC3, and at CES several customers demonstrated devices built on our platform that will launch this year.
 
Particularly exciting is the audio signal processing which we’re developing in conjunction with a highly regarded audio algorithm consultancy. They've done a fantastic job so far, especially on the professional quality low frequency filter topology that runs on our Digital Filter Block. It's been my experience in the past that merchant microcontroller companies have misunderstood and underestimated the quality level required by the audio market (and the passions aroused by audio quality issues in general). I'm really hoping that Cypress can become not just an alternative to the "usual suspects" in this space, but can set new standards for the audio quality that's possible from a multi-purpose SoC.
 
So, if you're waiting for - or want to be - the Next Big Thing in Audio, maybe you should contact your usual Cypress channel and let them know what you're thinking. Or use my email address. Perhaps we can help!
