Cypress Semiconductor recently unveiled the PSoC 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines its PSoC analogue and digital fabric and CapSense capacitive touch technology with ARM’s power-efficient Cortex-M0 core. This scalable, cost-efficient architecture delivers PSoC’s trademark flexibility, analogue performance and integration, along with access to many free PSoC Components – “virtual chips” represented by icons in Cypress’s PSoC Creator integrated design environment. According to the company, the new PSoC 4 device class will challenge proprietary 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers, along with other 32-bit devices. Cypress plans to announce the availability of new PSoC 4 families in the first half of 2013. Besides capacitive sensing, PSoC 4 targets field-oriented control motor control, temperature sensing, security access, portable medical, and many other applications.
