CY8C36xxx | Cypress Semiconductor


Introducing the CY8C36 family of ultra low power, Flash Programmable System-on-Chip™ (PSoC®) devices, part of a scalable 8-bit PSoC 3 and 32-bit PSoC 5 platform. The CY8C36 family provides configurable blocks of analog, digital, and interconnect circuitry around a CPU subsystem. The combination of a CPU with a very flexible analog subsystem, digital subsystem, routing, and I/O enables a high level of integration in a wide variety of consumer, industrial, and medical applications.

Trainings On-Demand
  • Training on-demand is web-based training that can be used to learn new subjects at your own pace and time. They are usually between 15 minutes to 2 hours
  • Webinars are live web-based events featuring a presenter on a live topic and attendees have the opportunity to interact with the presenter and ask questions. Webinars are archived and can be watched later.
  • The workshop is a live training event held by Cypress and its partners - registration is required.
  • Videos (typically less than 10 minutes) focus on specific topics - they can provide training on a very specific subject or demonstrate a new kit / feature
  • Blogs are informal communication for Cypress to interact with its customers. Different blogs focus on different topics. The PSoC Insiders blog is maintained by the PSoC Applications team and focus on provided training on various topics
  • My First Five PSoC 3 Design eBook provides you with a working foundation. Each project builds upon the knowledge you learn from the previous project. By the time you finish the final project, you will know about the PSoC 3 core, its digital and analog peripherals capabilities
