Looking to Migrate to a 32-bit PSoC?
The 8-bit PSoC 1 is a fantastic chip. It pioneered the way flexible microcontrollers are designed and used in embedded systems for all types of applications.
PSoC Designer and its User Modules enabled Cypress's customers to easily designs programmable hardware systems with a GUI-based, hardware + firmware co-development environment.
Although the PSoC 1 is still a perfect fit for several applications, some designs require more processing horsepower and larger instruction sets.
This is where the 32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M0-based PSoC 4 family comes into play.
Since its inception in 2012, the PSoC 4 family has expanded into a large portfolio of 32-bit Programmable SoCs with several mixed-signal peripheral blocks, including a HDL-programmable Universal Digital Block (UDB).
PSoC 4 devices are available in Flash sizes ranging from 16KB - 256KB, and CPU speeds from 16MHz - 48MHz.
Are you ready to make the leap to 32-bit PSoCs? For a quick and easy start:
- Download the PSoC Creator IDE for free.
PSoC Creator supports all PSoC 3 (8051), PSoC 4 (Cortex®-M0) and PSoC 5 (Cortex®-M3) devices and offers a powerful schematic capture-based editor to design your hardware systems, complete with a user-friendly code editor for firmware development.
- Buy the $4 PSoC 4 Prototyping Kit, or the $25 PSoC 4 M-Series Pioneer Kit (Arduino shield compatible)
- Create your first 32-bit PSoC design by reading through the Getting Started with PSoC 4 Application Note
