I hope they have bigger ones coming. Not sure what type of market this PSoC4 is for?
Nice find dana.
I'm stil confused, doe the PSOC4 has 8 macrocells per UDB intead of 2 macrocells per UDB in PSOC3/5 ?
also interesting the adition of more fixed funtion peripherals like the Serial Communication Blocks (SCB), it reduces the number of UDB needed in most deign, unless you need more than 2 comm interfaces.
The PSoC5/3 also have 8 macro cells per UDB. They have 2 PLDs per UDB, each with 4 macro cells- see pages 149-151 in the PSoC5 TRM (http://www.cypress.com/?docID=39997 - it has btw. TRM_PSoC3.book as title...).
What I have seen so far while skimming over the data sheet:
The fixed function blocks seem more capable now, which reduces the need to use UDB implementations (e.g. I complained before that I have a project which would need 2 16-bit-counters with capture - now this is possible w/o the UDBs...)
What seems to be missing:
I guess a $ 1 part does not have same capabilities as a $ 5 - $ 15 part.
Also looks like PSOC 4 is not a PSOC 1 replacement family, eg. PSOC 1
still relevant for some solutions.
I agree with Dana-san, PSoC1 has the analog filter, that's useful. The device of simple and an appropriate scale is best solution, I think.
Oh! I've forgot, Almost PSoC1 has a 14bit ! DelSig and SAR ADC.
