This is an update of a previous post I made regarding PSoC Real Time Operating System (RTOS) support. I also wanted to plug Alan Hawse’s great blog on hooking things up to the internet, iotexpert.com. He recently did a great post on FreeRTOS on PSoC 4. Here’s a table with the...

My colleague Mike brought me an interesting problem. In some applications it may be required to bring out PSoC s internal VREF to an external pin for example, as analog ground, or as reference to an external analog circuit. In PSoC1, this can be achieved by using the testmux . This is explained in an article that I wrote a few years...

PSoC4 is the latest family in the Programmable System on Chip series that offers the low-power and high performance of ARM Cortex M0 processor, programmable analog and digital that is unique to the PSoC devices and low cost you can get a PSoC4 for as low as $1. As a new user to any microcontroller family, there are several questions...

Usually in battery operated applications, the microcontroller also measures the level of the battery and either displays the percentage of the battery left or generates an alarm when the battery level is getting low. There are two methods to measure battery voltage. Method #1: In microcontrollers that have an internal ADC...

With PSoC 4, new blocks in the device handle interrupts a bit differently than before with PSoC 3 and 5LP. The main difference is the usage of the Write-One-To-Clear methodology. I'll use the TCPWM as an example of how this type of interrupt is used and controlled. The following are the APIs that are applicable to interrupts for the TCPWM...

With PSoC 4 there is another added clocking feature, chained clocks. The clock dividers in PSoC 4 come as sets of 3 clock dividers. The current devices have a total of 4 sets of 3, so 12 dividers in total. Any of these 12 clocks can be used to drive one or more of the 16 possible destinations. The clocks are configured in sets of 3 to...

One of the enhancements to clock generation that was introduced with PSoC 4 is the ability to have fractional clock dividers. By default all the clock dividers are integer clock dividers. For PSoC 4 that means that you can generate a clock whose frequency is the frequency of the High Frequency Clock (HFCLK) divided by a 16-bit integer. For...
