Cypress and Future Electronics develop low-cost PSoC 3 development board
July 13, 2010 // Paul Buckley
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and Future Electronics have introduced a low-cost development board to demonstrate the ease-of-use of Cypress's new PSoC 3 architecture. The Future Electronics PSoC 3 Development Board shows how developers can use the flexible PSoC 3 architecture and the PSoC Creator Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to streamline designs.
The Future Electronics PSoC 3 Development Board features:
- On-Board Debug/Programmer
- CapSense Touch Pad Interface
- TriColor - Red/Green/Blue LEDs
- User USB Interface Power through USB Ports
- Two Connectors for I/Os and Expansion Boards Optional CAN Oscillator
The companies have also announced that interested parties can request free onsite introductory demonstrations of the new development board or half-day, hands-on workshops.
PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices extend the world's only programmable analog and digital embedded design platform, delivering unmatched time-to-market, integration, and flexibility across 8-, 16-, and 32-bit applications. PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 offer high-precision programmable analog including 12- to 20-bit delta-sigma ADCs, digital logic libraries full of dozens of drop-in peripherals, best-in-class power management and rich connectivity resources. The PSoC Creator IDE introduces a unique schematic-based design methodology along with fully tested, pre-packaged analog and digital peripherals easily customizable through user-intuitive wizards and APIs to meet specific design requirements.
“We're pleased to offer our customers a low-cost entry point to experience how Cypress's PSoC platform provides the power and flexibility to develop innovative products and get to market fast," said Frantz Saintellemy, Chief Technical Officer at Future Electronics. “We're also looking forward to providing hands-on demonstrations through our free, onsite trainings.”
The free onsite demonstration introduces the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures and features, shows applications development using PSoC Creator software and the Future Electronics PSoC 3 Development Board, and includes a short lab. The free half-day workshop gives participants hands-on experience using and developing PSoC 3 applications through the PSoC Creator IDE and the CY8CKIT-001 PSoC Development Kit. Attendees will learn how to easily implement high-performance, low-power 8-bit or 32-bit mixed-signal applications with an architecture integrating powerful and programmable analog and digital resources.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
