Offers Forums for Users to Share Design Tips, Videos and Blogs

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 3, 2010 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today introduced a new online community for designers to share design tips, ask questions and find in-depth information on a wide range of Cypress products, including the PSoC® programmable system-on-chip. The new Cypress Developer Community™ website, now available at, includes forums organized by product type where users can interact. It also includes a video library, blog entries from Cypress technical experts and tweets from the company’s Twitter account. To celebrate the launch, Cypress will hold monthly drawings to give away an Apple iPad to new registrants.

The Cypress Developer Community includes forums focused on the company’s flagship PSoC® programmable system-on-chip devices, including the new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures and the supporting PSoC Creator™ software. Design engineers can post questions and comments in sections dedicated to device programming, solutions to design problems, and on the programmable analog and digital resources and applications for each of the architectures. Additional product forums focus on USB controllers, memory, clocks and buffers, along with forums on a range of applications and Cypress’s University Alliance.

“The Cypress Developer Community provides a place for our customers to dialog with one another, trading knowledge to maximize the efficiency of their design process,” said Chris Seams, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Cypress. ”By extension, we believe this is an extremely useful way for us to improve the quality of our customer support. We invite all our customers, employees and distribution partners to participate in the community. We will use the feedback we find there to add new resources and functionality to the site, and to lay the groundwork for future generations of Cypress products.”
