AN82156 - Designing PSoC Creator Components With UDB Datapaths

Have you ever wondered how PSOC Creator manages to pack so much functionality into its components? Chances are the component uses the UDBs in PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 to perform calculations, comparisons, and data management.  The "secret sauce" in the UDBs is the datapath - a configurable 8-bit ALU designed to offload tasks from the CPU. The datapaths, when chained together across UDBs and/or combined with PLD logic, are powerful tools to have at your disposal. Understanding how to use them is an essential part of creating optimized PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 solutions.

AN82156 explains how the datapaths work and teaches you how to develop PSoC Creator components that use the UDB datapaths. It contains step-by-step instructions for creating your first datapath component. The appendices also review the Datapath Configuration Tool and the Verilog code it generates.

If you are planning to create a custom component, you should become familiar with the datapath and the advantages it can offer. AN82156, its example projects, and related on-demand training videos are available today from the Cypress.com website.
