CY8CLED0xx0x - PowerPSoC® Firmware Design Guidelines, Lighting Control Interfaces
Nov 16, 2015
The Cypress Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC®) family of devices is well established in programmable mixedsignal microcontroller based devices. The traditional method to implement power management systems involves the use of a similar system-on-chip to interface with high power discrete devices such as constant current drivers and MOSFET switches.
PowerPSoC® devices combine the classic PSoC core with high performance power electronics. The result is an integrated, intelligent, power electronics solution in a single QFN package. The intent of PowerPSoC is to significantly reduce the cost, part count, and board space to implement power management systems while retaining performance. This family of devices (CY8CLED04D01) combines up to four independent channels of constant current drivers. These drivers feature hysteretic controllers with the that contains an 8-bit microcontroller, configurable digital and analog peripherals, and embedded flash memory.
This guide is primarily divided into two sections. The PowerPSoC firmware design guidelines section describes a step-by-step process to build an HB LED driver using PowerPSoC. It is followed by sections on lighting control interfaces that describes the implementation of DMX512 and DALI protocols in PowerPSoC.
