November 13, 2018 - Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the PSoC® 6 microcontroller from Cypress Semiconductor. Bridging the gap between power-hungry application processors and low‑performance microcontrollers, the ultra‑low‑power PSoC 6 microcontroller delivers all-in-one high-performance processing and critical security features that are purpose-built for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

The Cypress PSoC 6 microcontroller, available from Mouser Electronics, utilizes a dual-core architecture, with an Arm® Cortex®‑M4 for high‑performance tasks and an Arm Cortex‑M0+ for low-power tasks. Active power consumption is as low as 22 μA/MHz for the M4 core, and 15 μA/MHz for the M0+ core. The highly flexible PSoC 6 architecture enables the addition of features, such as USB, Bluetooth® low energy, and other software‑defined peripherals to create custom analog front ends (AFEs) and digital interface circuits that address the needs of those IoT designs requiring multiple connectivity options.

For IoT security, PSoC 6 integrates a hardware-based Trusted Execution Environment with secure boot capability and integrated secure data storage to protect firmware, applications and secure assets such as cryptographic keys. The device also implements industry-standard symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic algorithms which include elliptical-curve cryptography, Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and secure hash algorithms (SHA 1,2,3).

Mouser is also stocking the PSoC® 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit, which provides a PSoC 6 WiFi-BT Pioneer Board, TFT display shield, necessary jumper wires, and a USB cable for evaluation and development. The Pioneer Board offers header footprints for compatibility with Arduino Uno shields and Digilent® Pmod™ modules, plus a five-segment slider, two buttons, and one proximity-sensing header that allow engineers to evaluate Cypress' CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing technology. The TFT display shield board includes a 2.4-inch display, six-axis motion sensor, ambient light sensor IC, and PDM microphone for voice input.
