Thermal Management Using PSoC 1 | Cypress Semiconductor

Thermal Management Using PSoC 1

With its flexibile Analog and Digital resources, PSoC 1 is a very strong candidate for Thermal Management applications.  The PSoC can measure temperature from various types of temperature sensors like Diodes, Analog sensors, I2C based sensors, PWM based sensors and 1 wire sensors.  PSoC can implement a closed fan controller function by using 8 or 16 bit PWMs to drive fans and 16 bit timer to measure speed of the fan from the tach signal provided by some fans.

This video shows how a thermal managament application may be implemented using PSoC 1.
