Software Enablement for PSoC 6 – What to Expect

[re-printed from Cypress Developer Community - to learn more about PSoC 6 join the Cypress PSoC 6 EAP Community]

As a developer, working on new hardware is pretty common. The product team says “We’re going to use X in the next version.” About the first question on your mind when this happens is, “How do I write software for this platform?”

Let me give you a quick peek into what’s coming for PSoC 6. It’s pretty sweet. It is called the Peripheral Driver Library (PDL), The version for PSoC 6 is version 3.0. The PDL  is much more than just a driver library. It is actually a complete software development kit. It will look something like this:

The PDL includes:

  • All the device-specific header files and startup code, for every PSoC 6 part and package
  • A driver library provided in source code that you can easily configure for customized drivers
  • Fully-integrated middleware, like the Cypress BLE stack
  • FreeRTOS

In short, it will have everything you need to fill the gap between your application and the hardware. It supports every functional block on the device. The code for each function in each driver is fully documented. The same library works for both the CM0+ and the CM4 cores on the PSoC 6.

PDL 3.0 for PSoC 6 is entirely new, just like the PSoC 6 family, and a lot more comprehensive than earlier versions of the PDL. PDL 3.0 will support PSoC 6 only. I am personally up to my eyeballs helping to get this ready for you. And that’s pretty exciting.

If you've got a topic you'd like to see discussed, about the PDL or software development for PSoC 6, let me know in the comments. I'll see what I can do. For now, I recognize this is all theoretical, until you can get your hands on the actual software. Stay tuned, there’s a lot of neat stuff coming.

What about the software development for PSoC 6? Are you gonna make another post about it? Will share it on college papers help on Software development.
