Hardware Description

The CY3236A-PIRMOTION EVK allows you to evaluate Cypress' PSoC (Programmable System-on-Chip(TM)) device's ability to control a Pyroelectric Infrared (PIR) sensor to implement motion sensing applications such as automatic lighting controls, automatic door openers, security systems, kiosk wakeup and activating wireless cameras.

The human body radiates a certain amount of infrared light in the realm of about 10 micrometers at normal body temperature. PIR sensing captures this radiated light, filters the analog signals, converts those signals to digital and then uses the digital signals to control hardware depending on the application -- turning on a light, opening or unlocking a door, enabling or activating a security alarm, waking up a kiosk or ATM machine, activating a wireless camera, etc.

The CY3236A-PIRMOTION EVK includes all of the software, hardware, example projects and documentation you need to implement all of these PIR sensing control functions in one flexible and powerful PSoC device, the CY8C27443.
