µC goes analog
Cypress PSoC development kit
Your average embedded system will be primarily composed of digital components. However, analogue components are also necessary for filtering and amplifying signals, among other things. Cypress PSoCs combine a microcontroller with analogue functional blocks. A development kit such as the CY3270 forms a good starting point for rapid familiarisation with these ICs. You can buy the CY3270: PSoC First Touch’ starter kit for around £ 15 (25 euros).
