PSoC 3-based development platform for iPhone and iPod accessories
April 07, 2010 // Julien Happich
Cypress Semiconductor introduced a new development platform for Apple iPhone and iPod accessories based on its PSoC 3 architecture. Designers can use the CY8CKIT-023 PSoC expansion board kit as a plug-in board to Cypress's CY8CKIT-001 PSoC platform development kit to streamline design of innovative mobile accessories using the flexible PSoC programmable system-on-chip architecture.
The new kit leverages the iPhone OS operating system of Apple's iPhone and iPod products and the corresponding iPhone SDK (Software Development Kit) to provide a two-way communication interface between apps from Apple's App Store and corresponding accessories.
The PSoC-based development platform enables highly-integrated modular design of functions such as capacitive touch-sensing, LCD segment drive and much more for traditional iPhone and iPod accessories such as audio docks and speakers, chargers and automotive products.
The platform also opens up a new realm of accessories that can leverage the 480x320 touchscreen display and many other features of the iPhone and iPod touch for a myriad of markets and applications, including health and wellness, point-of-sale, RFID and diagnostics, and instrumentation tools. Details on the new kit are available at www.cypress.com/go/cy8ckit-023, and for more information on the Made for iPod program, visit http://developer.apple.com/ipod.
When used in conjunction with the PSoC development kit, the PSoC expansion board kit for iPhone & iPod accessories offers support for Cypress's recently announced PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 product families, as well as the PSoC 1 family. PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices extend the programmable analog and digital embedded design platform, delivering unmatched time-to-market, integration and flexibility across 8-, 16-, and 32-bit applications.
The platform is powered by the PSoC Creator integrated development environment, which 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.All news
