Cypress Highlights Connectivity Solutions at Electronica 2002
11/11/2002 - Cypress Semiconductor announced that it will exhibit at Electronica 2002 to be held at the Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany from November 12 through November 15.
At the show, Cypress will highlight its connectivity solutions with various live demonstrations. These demos will include a WAN (Wide Area Network) Linecard, USB 2.0 (webcam and digital camcorder) and Programmable Clock products. Cypress MicroSystems, a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, will feature its Cypress Programmable System on ChipTM (PSoCTM) controller with Local Interconnect Network (LIN) bus support, a reference design targeted for automotive applications.
The following products will be highlighted in each of the demonstrations:
- The WAN linecard will include Cypress’s port PHYs and framers optimize for high-speed transmissions over SONET/SDH; its Network Search Engines (NSEs) enabling high-performance packet processing; and its flexible PHY and backplane management solutions that drive high-performance serial backplanes.
- The USB product demonstrations will feature Cypress’s industry leading USB 2.0 microcontroller based FX2 family and its ATA/ATAPI bridge solutions (EZ-USB® AT2TM and ISD-300A1) designed for mass storage applications. With speeds of up to 480 Mbits/sec, they are the optimal solution for applications that demand greater bandwidth, such as hard drives, CD-ROM/R/RW, DVD-ROM/RAM/RW, zip drives, various flash memory standards and video and audio streaming.
- Cypress’s programmable clock generator features EPROM and I2C programmability. This product allows designers to program their specific frequency requirements in minutes using Cypress’s CyClocksTM software and development kit. These programmable clocks are ideal for last-minute frequency changes and are a cost-effective solution for replacing multiple crystals and/or crystal oscillators. Cypress’s CyClocks are also ideal substitutes for higher-order crystals, resulting in improved frequency stability and reliability over temperature and time.
- The LinBus reference design features a single PSoC (Programmable System on ChipTM mixed signal array with controller) that enables automotive engineers to build advanced applications with LIN bus communication capabilities. The LIN Protocol Specification Version 1.2 is a low-speed communications standard used in many automotive applications, including body control, driver information, multimedia, climate control, safety equipment, cockpit electronics and Human Machine Interface (HMI).
