32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M PSoC® | Cypress Semiconductor

32-bit ARM® Cortex®-M PSoC®

PSoC® 4 and PSoC® 5LP are the world's only programmable embedded System-on-Chip solutions based on the ARM® Cortex®-M processor, high-performance programmable analog blocks, PLD-based programmable digital blocks, programmable interconnect and routing, and CapSense®.  

PSoC products are optimized for cost, power and performance, targeting the industrial and consumer markets in applications like IoT, Motor Control, metering and human machine interfaces. 


Get to Market Faster. Reduce BOM Cost. Innovate in Design.

Rapidly Prototype: Use PSoC's flexible design software, to create custom chips in minutes, rather than hours. Create the mix of peripherals you want on your chip, select whichever pin you want, and you’re done.

No Blue Wires: Accommodate last-minute feature changes and eliminate hardware bugs by re-configuring PSoC programmable hardware blocks using PSoC Components to eliminate delays caused by PCB spins.

Interface to New Sensors: Design custom analog front ends (AFEs) using PSoC Components and programmable analog blocks to add new features to your product without increasing PCB size and BOM cost.


Cypress's PSoC Analog Coprocessor simplifies the design of sensor-based systems by delivering a scalable and reconfigurable architecture that integrates programmable analog front ends (AFEs) and a...
Now you don’t have to choose between, high-performance, security and ultra-low power.

Cypress is your one-stop shop for high-performance embedded system design. We back up our uniquely flexible programmable system-on-chip architectures with high quality software tools that help you get the most out of your PSoC device. With PSoC Creator™, PSoC Designer™ and PSoC Programmer™ you have access to a suite of world-class integrated design environments to support your embedded development with PSoC. There is simply no faster way to configure the perfect device, develop application code, then build, debug and deploy an embedded design.

Cypress offers several development kits allowing you to evaluate, prototype, and debug complete designs with PSoC. PSoC Development kits are broadly classified into two categories - Development Kits (DVKs) and Expansion Kits (EVKs). The DVKs are typically architecture-specific, whereas the EVKs are solution-specific and plug into the DVKs with standard connections. In addition, we offer kits for programming and debugging tools that work seamlessly within the ecosystem of PSoC products.

All PSoC Kits

The PSoC® architecture consists of programmable analog and digital blocks, a CPU subsystem and programmable routing and interconnect. PSoC lets you plug in predefined and tested IP from the PSoC library of functions (called PSoC Components), or code your own. Either way, you have the flexibility to build innovative and competitive features into your products.


Programmable Routing & Interconnect

This frees you to re-route signals to user selectable pins, shedding the constraints of a fixed-peripheral controller. In addition, global buses allow for signal multiplexing and logic operations, eliminating the need for a complicated digital-logic gate design.


Programmable Analog Blocks

PSoC enables custom AFE designs and sophisticated UIs without increasing cost, size or power with programmable analog blocks including an assortment of switch capacitors, opamps, comparators, ADCs, DACs, PGAs, etc. allowing complex analog signal designs.


Programmable Digital Blocks

PSoC implements coprocessors and serial interfaces without increasing cost, size or power with programmable digital blocks such as Timers/Counters/PWMs, Serial Communication Blocks, and Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs). UDBs are PLD-based blocks that can be configured to perform various tasks. 


CPU Subsystem

PSoC offers a 32-bit ARM Cortex®-M based CPU subsystem with SRAM , EEPROM, and Flash memory. Mmultiple core options and a variety of essential system resources include:

  • An internal main and low-speed oscillator
  • Connectivity to external crystal oscillator for precision, programmable clocking
  • Sleep and watchdog timers
  • Multiple clock sources that include a PLL
  • Dedicated communication interfaces like: I2C, Full-Speed USB 2.0, CAN 2.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy
  • On-chip debugging capabilities using JTAG and Serial Wire Debug (SWD)
