Hands-on Demonstration in ARM “Connected Community Pavilion”

Highlights High-Precision Analog Capabilities


BOSTON, Mass., September 20, 2010 – San Jose-Calif.,-based Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) will demonstrate its ARM®-based PSoC® 5 programmable system-on-chip architecture and PSoC Creator™ integrated development environment (IDE) at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston this week. The exhibition portion of the event will be held Tuesday and Wednesday, September 21-22, at the HynesConvention Center. Cypress is exhibiting in Booth 601.


Cypress’s demonstrations, part of the ARM “Connected Community Pavilion,” will showcase the high-precision analog capabilities of its latest programmable-system-on-chip offering, PSoC 5, which is particularly well suited for industrial applications, such as temperature and pressure monitoring and control. Free PSoC Creator software samples will be available at the booth.

About PSoC 3 and PSoC 5

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. More information on the PSoC 5 architecture and PSoC Creator is available at


Cypress’s PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures include high-precision programmable analog capabilities (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. These products provide designers with a seamless, programmable design platform, enabling easy migration from 8 bits to 32 bits. The robust features of these solutions dramatically expand the applications and markets that PSoC can address, including automotive, portable medical, industrial and many more.
