PSoC® 6

PSoC® 6 bridges the gap between expensive, power hungry application processors and low-performance microcontrollers (MCUs). The ultra-low-power PSoC 6 MCU architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices, eliminating the tradeoffs between power and performance. The PSoC 6 MCU contains a dual-core architecture, with both cores on a single chip. It has an Arm® Cortex®-M4 for high-performance tasks, and an Arm Cortex‑M0+ for low-power tasks, and with security built-in, your IoT system is protected.
