Don’t you think it’s about time… | Cypress Semiconductor

Don’t you think it’s about time…

Jessie James did it. David Letterman did it. Brad Pitt might have done it. Tiger Woods is probably still doing it. You know what I’m getting at. Everyone’s doing it, and I think you should too.
 
 
 
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I agree with what they did, but they are hitting on a subject that I want to talk about: don’t you think it’s time to cheat on your traditional microcontroller?
 
Maybe you’ve been married to the same microcontroller company for the past 5 to 10 years. Maybe your starting to get bored, or your relationship with your vendor is getting stale. Maybe you’re starting to take notice of PSoC’s ads, noticing their sleek IDE, the way their digital subsystem can be configured to do everything you desire, the way their voluptuous analog capabilities can control an entire programmable signal chain.  Maybe you’re even clicking on them. It can be exciting, I know. Maybe you’ve even taken an online training (GASP). Nobody wants to be caught in their office dabbling with another microcontroller’s training. 
 
That’s where I can help. I have some tried and true techniques that can allow you to learn and develop with the PSoC platform. First off, when taking a look at sexy website like www.cypress.com/go/PSoC5 use your browser’s private browsing function. Whether it’s IE’s InPrivate Browsing, FireFox’s Private Browsing, or Chrome’s Incognito function, this will help you comb our website without your manager logging into your history to find where you’ve been. 
 
Secondly, close the door to your office/conference room, draw the blinds, and turn off the lights before taking an online training. Trust me on this one: it will not draw any suspicion about you looking at another microcontroller’s website.
 
Lastly, when you order a kit, start small with a kit that has a non-assuming name like the PSoC 5 FirstTouch Kit. And when you order it, have it shipped to your house so your manager can’t see it.
 
Don’t feel guilty, try it out and see how it feels yourself.
 

Stay classy my PSoC brethren.
