PSoC® 3 with CapSense


PSoC® 3 is a true programmable embedded system-on-chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory and a microcontroller on a single chip. And now our breakthrough new PSoC 3 architecture boosts performance through:

  • Integrated high-precision 20-bit resolution analog
  • Ultra low power with industry’s widest voltage range
  • Programmable PLD-based logic
  • Single-Cycle 8051 core up to 67 MHz

PSoC 3 is now available in Chip Scale Packages (CSP) allowing you to design with the flexibility of PSoC in space constrained and small form factor applications like wearables, fitness products, and mobile devices.
