Think it-Draw it-Build it: with PSoC Creator

Last Updated:

In September 2009, Cypress Semiconductor introduced the PSoC Creator embedded design tool for its new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip architectures. PSoC Creator integrates support for PSoC programmable hardware with a full-featured software IDE. It abstracts away the hardware so you do not need to be an expert on the device you are using or the inner workings of peripherals you program it with. It routes on-chip connections and I/O automatically. And it generates APIs for the peripherals and on-chip functions, which are known as components, to ensure error-free interaction from software.

In the following example we’ll take a mixture of digital and analog components, quickly configure them into the PSoC 3 device, then build a simple but useful application that monitors a pin for an over-voltage condition, controls a warning LED, and records the number of events and maximum duration of that state.  To read more, click the download link below.
