Cypress VP to participate in panel discussion at 12:30 p.m PST


SAN JOSE, Calif., April 26, 2011 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced its participation in the Digi-Key Microcontroller Virtual Conference presented live on April 28, 2011 by EE Times.  Cypress will present a virtual booth showcasing its flagship PSoC® Programmable System-on-Chip Architecture. There will be experts on PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 available for live chat throughout the conference, as well as a wide range of informational resources. More information on the Virtual Conference and registration details are available at For those unable to attend the event live, it will be available via archive for six months.


In addition to the virtual booth, Cypress’s Vice President of Technical Staff, Ata Khan, will participate in a panel discussion entitled “MCU I/O Strategies and Tactics.” The panel will focus on how to efficiently handle communications with peripheral components and devices, and when it makes sense to go off-chip.


Virtual events such as this offer the opportunity to see the latest solutions from leading vendors without the cost and time of traveling to a physical exhibit hall,” said Robert Jania, product marketing manager of PSoC. “We’re looking forward to presenting our powerful and flexible PSoC solutions to engineers from around the world, and having the opportunity to interact with them to answer their questions.”


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 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.
