Cypress has introduced the fully-qualified PSoC5LP programmable system-on-chip family. The new devices provide unmatched high-performance programmable analog, the best ADCs available on an ARM Cortex-M3-based device, and the flexibility to design custom systems with 80+ pre-verified production-ready “soft” components for the PSoC Creator IDE including opamps, comparators, trans impedance amplifiers (TIAs), programmable gain amplifiers (PGAs), mixers, segment LCDs, CapSense touch sensing, DACs, analog multiplexers and more. All of the components are configurable to meet individual application requirements to deliver a single chip solution.

 

PSoC5LP offers programmable analog precision with differential 12-bit SARs and a 20-bit Delta-Sigma ADC supported by a 1.024V 0.1% accurate internal voltage reference. The ADCs includes 62 channels, fully functional analog from 1.71 - 5.5V and the widest input signal range from 0 - 5.5V of any ARM Cortex-M device. Consuming only 300 nA in hibernate mode, the new devices can wake-up on IOs and retain the state of the CPU core, SRAM and device configuration. Ideal for single cell battery operation, Cypress’s boost technology allows designers to power up and regulate on as little as 0.5V. Unlike fixed-function MCUs, PSoC allows designers to further reduce power consumption by customizing each peripheral Component so unnecessary functions do not consume any power.
