The names given to the nodes in the circuit layout can be referenced in the C code software which you will generate in the Creator IDE. There is also the possibility of implementing a complete hardware solution by configuring the peripherals to perform a function without the need for any software input apart from initialization.

To sum up…

The board clearly has tremendous potential, in the short time I got to play with it I was only able to touch on just some of its basic capabilities and it left me wanting to explore further. It’s unlikely that you would want to confine the board use solely to Arduino applications because then you would be missing out on its strongest features which are its built-in peripherals and their configurability.

The FreeSoC2 PSoC 5LP Dev Board will be available from the Elektor Store shortly as part of a promotion.
