Cypress and ARM Webinar on September 23 Explores Migration from 8-Bit to 32-Bit Designs

Last Updated: September 21, 2010

Free Online Seminar Hosted with EE Times Will Explore Migration Benefits And How to Avoid Pitfalls

SAN JOSE, Calif., September 21, 2010 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced a free, online seminar that will help engineers in the migration from 8-bit to 32-bit designs. The 60-minute webinar, entitled “Migrating from 8-bit to 32-bit Processing with the Cypress PSoC Platform,” will be presented in conjunction with ARM and EE Times on Thursday, September 23 at 9:00 a.m. PDT. Registration is available at

As embedded system projects become more complex, many designs that were previously implemented with 8-bit controllers need to move to 32-bit architectures. While this transition was considered difficult in the past, new tools and architectures are facilitating the switch. This webinar will discuss the high-level benefits of moving from 8-bits to 32-bits, some of the road blocks that designers can face, and how Cypress's PSoC® platform makes this transition painless.

About PSoC 3 and PSoC 5
Cypress’s PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures include high-precision programmable analog capability (up to 20-bit resolution for an Analog to Digital Converter) and expanded programmable digital resources integrated with powerful, industry-standard MCU cores and ample memory and communications peripherals. The PSoC 3 devices are based on a high-performance 8-bit 8051 processor, while the PSoC 5 devices include a powerful 32-bit ARM® Cortex™-M3 processor. The products provide designers with a seamless, programmable design platform, enabling easy migration from 8 to 32 bits. The robust features of these new solutions dramatically expand the applications and markets that PSoC can address, including automotive, portable medical, industrial and many more. More information about PSoC products is available at and free online training can be found at
