AN77759 - Getting Started with PSoC® 5LP


AN77759 introduces you to PSoC® 5LP, an Arm® Cortex® -M3-based programmable system-on-chip. It describes the PSoC 5LP architecture and development environment, and shows you how to create a simple design using PSoC Creator, the development tool for PSoC 5LP. This application note also guides you to more resources for in-depth learning about PSoC 5LP as well as PSoC in general.


PSoC 5LP is a true programmable embedded system-on-chip, integrating custom analog and digital peripheral functions, memory, and an Arm Cortex-M3 CPU on a single chip. 

PSoC 5LP provides a cost-effective alternative to the combination of MCU and external ICs. The PSoC 5LP architecture boosts performance through:

  • 32-bit Arm Cortex-M3 core plus DMA controller and digital filter processor, at up to 80 MHz
  • Ultra-low power with industry's widest voltage range 
  • Programmable digital and analog peripherals enable custom functions 
  • Flexible routing of any analog or digital peripheral function to any pin

A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 digital and analog peripheral functions, reducing design time, board space, power consumption, and system cost while improving system quality.
