Designed for Low Power

The PSoC 4 architecture supports an extremely low-leakage hibernate mode consuming only 150nA. It features a best-in-class 20nA stop mode, eliminating the need for external power circuitry for sleep and wake-up control. While in active mode, it provides fully functional analog capabilities from 1.71 – 5.5V.


Debug like a Pro

An onboard PSoC 5LP device serves as the programmer and debugger, eliminating the need for external programmers. Interface through the USB connector to talk to your PC over SWD, USB-UART, or USB-I2C. With PSoC Creator™ you can design your system, write firmware, and step-through code using the built-in debugger.
