PSoC 3 extended with new dev kit and software
March 16, 2011 // Phil Ling
Cypress Semiconductor has announced the new CY8CKIT-030 development kit for its PSoC 3 programmable system-on-chip architecture, along with a new version of its PSoC Creator software tool. The new dev kit is designed for fast and easy development of designs using the integrated 20-bit Delta Sigma ADC, which delivers better than 18-bit effective number of bits (ENOB) performance.
Designed for low power, the kit showcases a 1-microAmp sleep current with the real-time clock running. It offers built in programming and debugging without the need for an external programming device, and two expansion board ports that can connect to other Cypress kits for additional functionality.
The new kit also has built-in CapSense buttons and a 5-segment slider. It includes a CD (with PSoC Creator and example projects) and a USB cable that can both power and program the board.
Cypress has also released version 1.0 of its PSoC Creator Integrated Design Environment. This new version delivers eighty-seven production-ready PSoC 3 components that have been fully characterized. Designers now have easy access to a rich library of pre-built, pre-tested analog and digital peripherals, which they can use immediately, or can customize to specific design requirements. This new version also adds features such as improved parameter dialogs, a static timer checker, instruction cache support, automated support case reporting and new error notification tools.

Cypress expects the new development kit and software release to add to the strong momentum that PSoC 3 is generating. To date, over 250 customer designs have specified PSoC 3, and Cypress has shipped more than 4,000 design kits and has shipped samples to over 700 customers worldwide. The PSoC 3 architecture includes four product families, all of which are in full production today with samples available on request at www.cypress.com/go/PSoC3All news

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.
