What's a Programmable Signal Chain??

Earlier this week, Matt Branda, Director of PSoC Marketing, and Mark Hastings, PSoC Applications Engineer MTS, teamed up together to deliver a live webinar introducing and discussing programmable signal chains as a unique capability that PSoC provides.  If you missed it or just want to watch it again, visit the website here: http://www.techonline.com/learning/livewebinar/224900097.  Below is the abstract...login and check it out!

 


 Introduction to Programmable Signal Chains

A signal chain, or signal-processing chain, is a common term you have probably heard before used to describe a series of signal-conditioning components in a mixed-signal design that are used for analog signal acquisition, processing, and control.

So, what the heck is a programmable signal chain?
 
A Programmable Signal Chain is a modern design methodology for implementing signal chains using programmable analog integrated with programmable digital logic and high-performance CPUs to provide unique and easy-to-implement solutions to common design challenges in mixed-signal embedded design.  
In this webinar we'll explore this new design methodology as exemplified by Cypress's new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip architectures. We'll see how these new architectures, powered by the PSoC Creator development software, uniquely solve mixed-signal design challenges and allows you to:
  • Adapt to change easier
  • Get to market faster
  • Deal with analog complexity
  • Protect your design IP

Matt Branda is the Marketing Director for PSoC programmable system-on-chip devices at Cypress Semiconductor. Since joining Cypress in 2000, he has held positions in various product marketing and business development roles for the company's USB, wireless and PSoC solutions. Matt holds a Bachelors of Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. 

 

 


 Mark Hastings is an Applications Engineer MTS for PSoC Programmable System-on-Chip at Cypress Semiconductor. Since joining Cypress in 1998, he worked with the first Cypress USB microcontrollers, and then in 2001 joined Cypress MicroSystems working on PSoC. Mark first worked on developing content (libraries of pre-configured analog and digital peripherals) for PSoC 1, PSoC 3, and PSoC 5, with a focus on analog. In 2009 he took a position in the PSoC applications team focused on expanding the analog capabilities and applications of Cypress's PSoC portfolio. Mark holds a Bachelors of Electrical Engineering from Washington State University.
