Maker Faire 2016



Making Made Easy with PSoC® and Cypress

What’s Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. This global show unites makers, students, engineers, hobbyists, authors, artists, and authors in a common cause – to #make cool things!

Cypress and the Make Movement – Making Made Easy 

At Cypress we are completely invested in the Maker movement. Our Programmable System on Chip (PSoC) technology is simple, easy-to-use, and maker-friendly. We also provide free software, video tutorials, and an extensive portfolio of kits for you to choose from.


Our Maker Journey in 2016

The #PSoCMaker team is starting its Maker Faire journey in May 2016.

Mini-Maker Faire, Taipei – May 7-8, 2016

#PSoCMaker team will be showing solutions for home automation, Bluetooth® Low Energy, capacitive and proximity-sensing, drones, robots, and much more.

Come by our booth at the Japan National Taiwan Science Education Center to see the latest in #maker technology that works for you.

Remember to use the hashtag #PSoCMaker when making a Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, or Facebook post for an opportunity to win a Cypress PSoC kit.

Bay Area Maker Faire, San Mateo – May 20-22, 2016

After Taipei, the #PSoCMaker team will be heading to the Bay Area Maker Faire. We have several things planned for you. Drop by our booth for a hands-on demo on programming your own remote- controlled car and then race it on the mini track in our booth. Winners will be suitably rewarded with our easy-to-use PSoC kits! Hang out with the makers who use Cypress PSoC in their designs and learn how you can be the next “Maker of the Month” and get a chance to showcase your cool technology at our booth. Remember to stay for our PSoC 101 on workshops and stand a chance to win kits or discount coupons to buy them.

Mini-Maker Faire Tokyo – August 6-7, 2016
Our Maker team heads to Tokyo in August. Visit our booth and brainstorm with our local maker friends on how PSoC changed the way they create cutting-edge tech.

Mini-Maker Faire, Seattle – September 17-18, 2016
We rocked Seattle in 2015 and intend to do the same this year too! Come see our line-up of fun demos – from the fruitano – our very own fruit piano – to how PSoC can change the way you design LED lamps! We’ll be giving away several free kits, so don’t forget to sign-up for our daily raffle.


World Maker Faire, New York – October 1-2, 2016
The #PSoCMaker train will make its last stop in NY! From RC cars to drone academy – we will be bringing it all.

We will be doing live Tweeting, Periscope-ing, and running Google Hangouts at all the Maker Faires. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #PSoCMaker and follow us!
