PSoC® 1

PSoC® 1 is the world's first Programmable embedded System-on-Chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory, and a microcontroller on a single chip. Powered by Cypress's proprietary 8-bit M8C core, the PSoC 1 devices provide the system designer analog integration, flexible IO routing, and configurable analog and digital peripherals.  This allows the designer to quickly design a system and make changes on the fly, while saving on BOM costs and development time.  PSoC 1 devices are supported by an integrated development environment PSoC Designer™ and easy to use PSoC 1 development kits.

 

PSoC 1 Architecture

 

The PSoC 1 architecture consists of four main areas: (1) PSoC Core, (2) Digital System, (3) Analog System, and (4) System Resources. Configurable global busing allows all the device resources to be combined into a complete custom system. Cypress offers PSoC 1 devices that have up to 16 Digital Blocks and 12 Analog Blocks.  Digital blocks are programmable digital blocks that the designer can use to implement glue logic, UART, PWMs, counters, LUTs, etc.  These blocks contain a programmable data path and status and control registers, and includes both Basic Blocks (BB) and Communications Blocks (CB).  Analog blocks are programmable analog blocks that the designer can use to implement OpAmps, PGAs, comparators, etc, and include Continuous Time (CT) blocks and Switched Capacitor (SC) blocks.  Both the Digital and Analog blocks are configurable using User Modules (UMs) in PSoC Designer

Datasheet
User Module Datasheets
  • The silicon datasheet covers key features of the device, brief operational details, pin out, electrical specifications and characterization graphs. It only focuses on the silicon features. Analog  functions (for e.g. ADC, DAC) and Digital  functions (for e.g. PWM, timer) are documented in the .
Errata
  • The family errata documents operation deviation of device compared to the family datasheet. If certain feature doesn't work as expected it is documented in the errata document. It is very critical that user refers to corresponding errata document as it will document critical issues and workarounds for the device.
Programming Specifications
  • The PSoC® 1 In-System Serial Programming Specification provides programming timing and vectors so that developers and programmer vendors can create their own in-system programming solutions for a PSoC 1 device. The specifications are provided in 3 Application Notes (AN2026A/B/C) with 2 additional Application Notes (AN44168, AN59389) providing working easy to follow example code.
PSoC 1 Programmers
  • The General PSoC Programming web page is central location that details all aspects of programming related to all available PSoC devices like Software, Engineering Programmers, Programming Specifications and Production Programming Vendors.
Technical Reference Manual
  • The PSoC 1 Technical Reference Manual provides detailed information on the device features and how they work. It is intended for advanced user's who want to understand what's going on under the hood.

Emulators PSoC 1 Emulator Home Page The CY2315-DK IN-Circuit Emulation Development Kit

PSoC 1 devices require an In-Circuit Emulator (ICE) to perform debugging using the CY3215-DK In-circuit Emulation Development Kit. Cypress Semiconductor provides multiple POD foot options (PDIP, QFN, SSOP, SOIC). The POD kits are listed under the CY3210- XXXX or CY3250 – XXXX naming conventions. Visit the or click on the Title above to know more.

Featured Kit:

The CY2315 DK software interface allows the user to run, halt, and single step the processor code. It also allows the user to set complex event points. Event points can start and stop the trace memory on the ICE, as well as break the program execution.
In addition to the CY3213 DK, different Emulation Pods are available to support the range of devices in the PSoC 1 family. They plug into (or are soldered onto) the user's circuit board to provide the physical interface. Pods are available for low-cost expansion of the ICE-Cube capability.
