Customers can now pre-order Cypress’ new PSoC 4 Pioneer development kit from element14 Pty Ltd .
The powerful new kit from Cypress Semiconductor Corp lets designers discover the capabilities of the new PSoC 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines Cypress’s best-in-class PSoC analogue and digital fabric with ARM’s power-efficient Cortex-M0 core.
John Weil, senior director of PSoC Marketing for Cypress explains that the PSoC 4 is a game-changing product that marries PSoC’s unique programmable analogue and digital fabric with the powerful, economical ARM Cortex-M0 processor. The perfect development platform for this architecture, the new PSoC 4 Pioneer kit provides tremendous functionality at a low price.
David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell comments that the PSoC 4 Pioneer kit is flexible, cost-effective and expandable with open-source architectures. He adds that the collaboration between the two companies will bring new opportunities to design engineers.
Cypress’s platform solution PSoC 4, PSoC Creator and PSoC components simplifies and accelerates the design process, reduces the bill of materials, and provides extraordinary system value.
Key features of the Cypress PSoC 4 Pioneer development kit:
