Cypress Webinar on June 9 Introduces Programmable Signal Chain Concept For Mixed-Signal Embedded Designs

Last Updated: December 09, 2011

Free Online Seminar Hosted with EE Times Will Explore How to Use a Programmable
System-on-a-Chip to Complete Embedded Analog Designs Faster and More Flexibly

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 7, 2010 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced a free, online seminar that presents a new concept in embedded design: the “Programmable Signal Chain.” The 60-minute webinar, entitled “Introduction to Programmable Signal Chains,” will be presented in conjunction with EE Times on Wednesday, June 9 at 11:00 a.m. PDT. Registration is available at

A signal chain, or signal-processing chain, is a series of signal-conditioning components in a mixed-signal design that are used for analog signal acquisition, processing and control. A programmable signal chain is a modern method for implementing signal chains using programmable analog integrated with programmable digital logic and a high-performance CPU. This new methodology provides unique and easy-to-implement solutions for mixed-signal embedded design.

The webinar will explore this new design methodology as exemplified by Cypress's new PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip architectures. Attendees will see how these architectures, powered by the PSoC Creator™ development software, uniquely solve mixed-signal design challenges. The webinar will conclude with a detailed question and answer period to address participants’ applications and designs.

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.
