Cypress MicroSystems Hosts Web Seminar to Help Embedded Systems Designers Benefit From the Innovative Programmable System on Chip (PSoC) Architecture

10/4/2002 - Cypress Semiconductor announced that it will host a one-hour web seminar entitled "Cypress PSoC: Designing With Flash-Based MCUs." Presenters, John McDonald, vice-president of marketing and Nathan John, director of strategic marketing for Cypress MicroSystems will provide a technical overview of the revolutionary PSoC architecture, which provides a quantum increase in flexibility for embedded applications. This seminar will be a great introduction for customers interested in the capabilities of the PSoC devices.

"PSoC is a dynamically reconfigurable mixed signal analog array with an on-chip controller, and is uniquely designed to meet the needs of a broad range of embedded applications," said John McDonald. "Every embedded application includes analog input and analog output, which has been a traditional weakness in the offerings in the microcontroller market," added John.

Attendees of this web seminar will receive information about the overall benefits, chip architecture and development tools. The target audience for this seminar is designers of embedded systems, and managers in charge of engineering and purchasing for embedded systems.

About the PSoC Family
The PSoC IC is a reconfigurable mixed signal array with an on-board controller. The PSoC device family integrates a fast 8-bit CPU, 8 to 16 Kbytes of Flash memory, 256 bytes of SRAM, and programmable blocks of analog and digital logic. This provides designers with a flexible architecture that can be configured for a broad range of embedded applications and dynamically reconfigured to extend the capabilities and value of the device. PSoC devices speed design time and lower bill of material (BOM) costs by an average of $5, by eliminating the number of chips required for solutions utilizing a traditional microcontroller and discrete digital and analog components.
