Mouser Electronics is now stocking the PSoC-4 Pioneer Kit from Cypress Semiconductor Corp. This easy-to-use platform allows developers to design and evaluate the Cypress CY8C4245AXI, a member of PSoC-4 family. The Cypress PSoC-4 product family is a combination of an ARM Cortex-M0 microcontroller, reconfigurable analogue blocks, and digital programmable logic. Peripherals include a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC), two digital-to-analogue converters (DACs), two op-amps, and standard communication and timing peripherals. The PSoC-4 also features a 20nA STOP mode.
The Cypress PSoC-4 Pioneer Kit includes connectors for Arduino shields and Pmod daughter cards. The board also features a CapSense touch-sensing slider, an RGB LED, a user button, and access to all pins on the CY8C4245AXI. A USB connector connects the board to a PC, allowing communication over USB-to-UART, USB-to-I2C, or ARM’s Serial Wire Debug (SWD). Once connected, the PC runs Cypress’ PSoC Creator IDE which allows developers to simultaneously configure the PSoC-4’s programmable logic and also write and compile C code application firmware. The IDE has an easy-to-use graphical interface that allows developers to drag and drop pre-characterised, production-ready analogue and digital IP blocks – PSoC Components – into a single PSoC-4 to create customised, feature-rich, and highly differentiated programmable products. Over 50 pre-tested PSoC Components are included.
Included is the PSoC-4 Pioneer Kit Board, a Quick Start Guide, a USB A to mini-B Cable, and six jumper wires. Target designs using the PSoC-4 architecture include field-oriented control (FOC) industrial motor control, temperature sensing, security access, portable medical appliances, and many other low-power applications.
