Hands-on Demo Stations in ARM Connected Community Pavilion Booth 1308
To Highlight High-Precision Analog Capabilities and Graphics Control

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 21, 2010 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced it will demonstrate its ARM®-based PSoC® 5 programmable system-on-chip architecture and PSoC Creator™ integrated development environment (IDE) at the Embedded Systems Conference Silicon Valley in San Jose from April 26 to 29. The demonstrations in the ARM Connected Community Pavilion, Booth 1308, will feature the high-precision analog and integrated graphics control of the PSoC 5 devices. Free software samples will be available at the booth. More information on ESC Silicon Valley is available at

The PSoC 5 architecture integrates a 32-bit ARM Cortex™-M3 core with high-precision programmable analog including 12-bit to 20-bit ADCs, digital logic libraries full of dozens of drop-in peripherals, best-in-class power management and rich connectivity resources. The PSoC Creator IDE introduces a unique schematic-based design methodology along with fully tested, pre-packaged analog and digital peripherals easily customizable through user-intuitive wizards and APIs to meet specific design requirements.

About PSoC 3 and PSoC 5
The new 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 new, high-performance 8-bit 8051 processor, while the PSoC 5 devices include a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex™-M3 processor. The new products provide designers with a seamless, programmable design platform, enabling easy migration from 8 bits 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.
