Introducing PSoC 6: Purpose-built MCU Architecture for the IoT

If you were following Cypress news for the last couple of weeks, I’m sure you saw some interesting and exciting announcements…in between reading Mark’s posts about Barc: My Cypress Maker Lab Project.  Take a look at the below to learn more and join us in the PSoC 6 Early Adopter Program to continue learning more.  

 

Here it is…Cypress’ PSoC 6 MCU Architecture…

 

At the heart of every IoT device lies a mixed-signal embedded system that is taking on an increasing amount of processing, fueled by cloud connectivity. Devices such as door locks, factory machinery, and wearables are becoming smart — sensing, connecting, learning and responding — to make life easier. With connectivity, security becomes critical to protect end users from malicious activity. These next-generation IoT devices require increased processing and security without incurring power and cost penalties.

Cypress’ new PSoC 6 MCU architecture is purpose-built for the IoT, bridging the gap between expensive, power hungry application processors and low performance MCUs. The ultra-low-power PSoC 6 MCU architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices. Security is built-in, enabling a single-chip solution. PSoC 6 enables engineers to uniquely create innovative, next-generation IoT devices leveraging the unique PSoC fabric with its easy-to-use, software-defined peripherals.   

 

Ultra-Low Power
IoT devices are often battery powered, making battery life a critical factor. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture is built on a cutting-edge, ultra-low-power, 40-nm process technology, and provides two ARM® Cortex-M® cores. Active power consumption is as low as 22-μA/MHz for the M4 core, and 15-μA/MHz for the M0+ core. PSoC 6 delivers extended battery life without sacrificing performance.

PSoC Possibilities
The rapid growth of the IoT is sparking a need for innovation in IoT products. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture’s best-in-class flexibility enables the addition of new features and addresses the need for unique IoT products with multiple connectivity options, such as USB and BLE, software-defined peripherals to create custom analog and digital circuits, and the industry’s best capacitive sensing solution, CapSense®. In addition, a flexible dual-core architecture is used to optimize for system power consumption and performance. The possibilities are endless.

Security
With more devices becoming connected to the IoT, cybersecurity becomes an important issue to address. Secured connections must be established between hardware, cloud applications and servers, and finally users and services. The PSoC 6 MCU architecture supports multiple, simultaneous secure environments without the need for external memories or secure elements, and offers scalable secure memory for multiple, independent user-defined security policies, preventing your IoT device from becoming a security liability. PSoC 6 provides you with a new standard for IoT security.

I love the idea with Cypress’ new PSoC 6 MCU. However,  In such cases these cutting edge IoT gadgets require expanded handling and security which should be cost free.

More About the Concept of an Afterlife: The only part of you that could in any way survive into an afterlife would have to be an immaterial part of you since when you snuff it, your material remains go nowhere. But any immaterial part of you would have no sensory apparatus so how could you enjoy an afterlife when you couldn't experience it? On the other hand, if your life is but a computer simulation, then equally so could your afterlife be another simulation. One software program ends (death) and another begins (afterlife).
