Requirements to maintain membership for current members

For partners to maintain membership in the program, it is strongly recommended that current activity is established regularly. You can establish your design activity with Cypress using one of the following methods:

  1. Register your design at MyDesignPartner extranet. Instructions shown below.
  2. Have your local Cypress Sales representatives or distributors register your designs in Cypress’ internal Customer Relationship Management tool (CRM).
  3. Shipping samples of product(s) or demos designed using Cypress ICs to us by contacting designpartners@cypress.com

Download the new Design Partner Logo

The new program will be rebranded as the Cypress Design Partner Program. While the CyPros brand will still be in existence, we encourage partners to start using the new brand and the associated logos.

Logging your Design Activity

As mentioned earlier, logging your design activity and design opportunities pipeline is very important. You can click on the link to online design registration on the top left hand corner for entering opportunity information.

The alternate way to log your opportunity pipeline with Cypress is to ensure your local Cypress sales or authorized Cypress distributor is entering the opportunity information in the Cypress CyLink CRM opportunity management tool and ensures that they select your company as the design services organization while entering the opportunity.

Promotion of partner enabled solutions by Cypress:

Solutions developed by our premium partners using Cypress’s products will be considered for joint promotion. These solutions could include system level modular products, development kits or ready-to-manufacture/turn-key reference designs. The promotions offered include marketing roll-outs of partner solutions to customers using Cypress’ sales channels and website. For promotion of such ready-to-go solutions, please contact us by email at designpartners@cypress.com.

Training of partners:

Training is no longer required for admission into the program. However, in order to ensure partners are up-to-date with Cypress offerings and technology, we will expect engineers from the partner company to periodically complete certain training courses. We will communicate the requirements for certification and associated deadlines on a regular basis. The latest training on PSoC3 and PSoC5 products can be found at http://www.cypress.com/training. The design partner blog will also be updated regularly as and when new training is available.

Preferred Technical Support:

As a certified Design Partner, partners can receive priority support from our Applications Hotline or website-based support system based on their membership level in the program using our online case management system: www.cypress.com/support. Identifying themselves as a Design Partner in the Subject line of the case will allow for faster and more efficient escalation of their issues. In the USA, partners can call (425) 787-4814 or 408-943-2600 and tell the engineer that you are a certified design partner before discussing your needs. Additionally, they can contact Cypress or Distributor FAEs for additional specialized help.

Discussion Boards:

In addition to receiving support, the Cypress Developer Community (http://www.cypress.com/?app=forum) is a good way to be recognized as an expert by potential customers. The discussion boards can be found under the Design Support tab at www.cypress.com
