8-bit PSoC® (Programmable Embedded System-on-Chip)

The PSoC® portfolio offers two 8-bit Programmable embedded System-on-Chip architectures:PSoC 1 and PSoC 3.

PSoC® 1 is the world's first Programmable embedded System-on-Chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory, and a microcontroller on a single chip.Powered by Cypress's proprietary 8-bit M8C core, the PSoC 1 devices provide the system designer analog integration, flexible IO routing, and configurable analog and digital peripherals. PSoC 1 is powered by Cypress's proprietary 8-bit M8C core. 

PSoC® 3 is a true programmable embedded system-on-chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions, memory and a microcontroller on a single chip. PSoC 3 is powered by a Single-Cycle 8051 core running at a speed of up to 67 MHz. PSoC 3 provides high performance solutions for consumer and industrial applications by integrating high-precision 20-bit analog and programmable PLD-based logic while delivering ultra low power with the industry’s widest voltage range.

The PSoC® architecture consists of programmable analog and digital blocks, a CPU subsystem and programmable routing and interconnect.PSoC lets you plug in predefined and tested IP from the PSoC library of functions (called PSoC Components), or code your own.Either way, you have the flexibility to build innovation and competitive advantage into your products.

Programmable Routing & Interconnect

This frees you to re-route signals to user selected pins, shedding the constraints of a fixed-peripheral controller.In addition, global buses allow for signal multiplexing and logic operations, eliminating the need for a complicated digital-logic gate design.

Programmable Analog Blocks

PSoC enables custom AFE designs and sophisticated UIs without increasing cost, size or power with Programmable Analog Blocks including an assortment of switch capacitors, op-amps, comparators, ADC, DAC, PGAs, etc. allowing complex analog signal flows.

Programmable Digital Blocks

PSoC implements Coprocessors and serial interfaces without increasing cost, size or power with Programmable Digital Blocks such as Timers/Counters/PWMs, Serial Communication Blocks, and Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs).UDBs are CPLD-based blocks that can be combined to create 16-, 24-, or even 32-bit wide logic resources. 

CPU Subsystem

The 8-bit PSoC products offers devices with SRAM , EEPROM, and Flash memory, two CPU options (8051 and M8C) and a variety of essential system resources including:

  • Internal main and low-speed oscillator
  • Connectivity to external crystal oscillator for precision, programmable clocking
  • Sleep and watchdog timers
  • Multiple clock sources that include a PLL
  • PSoC devices also have dedicated communication interfaces like I2C, Full-Speed USB 2.0, CAN 2.0 and on-chip debugging capabilities using JTAG.

サイプレスは高性能の埋め込みシステム設計のためのワンストップ・ショップです。We back up our uniquely flexible programmable system-on-chip architectures with high quality software tools that help you get the most out of your PSoC device.With PSoC Creator™, PSoC Designer™ and PSoC Programmer™ you have access to a suite of world-class integrated design environments to support your embedded development with PSoC.完璧なデバイスを構成し、アプリケーションコードを開発し、その後、埋め込み設計を構築、デバッグ、さらにデプロイするためのより早い方法は他にはありません。

Cypress offers several development kits allowing you to evaluate, prototype, and debug complete designs with PSoC.PSoC Development kits are broadly classified into two categories - Development Kits (DVKs) and Expansion Kits (EVKs).The DVKs are typically architecture-specific, whereas the EVKs are solution-specific and plug into the DVKs with standard connections.In addition, we offer kits for programming and debugging tools that work seamlessly within the ecosystem of PSoC products.
