ARM® and Cypress University Education Programs to Partner on Activities Focused on Cypress's PSoC® Architectures with ARM Cortex M-Series Cores
Two Established Programs Begin Collaboration on
Both Exhibiting at
Both university programs are represented at the 120th
"ARM is pleased to be working with Cypress on global university outreach
and educational activities," said
"Joining forces with ARM on PSoC-focused university programs is a
natural fit," said
The ARM University Program provides its training material and software tools, including the Keil MDK-ARM (Micro-controller Development Kit) Software Tools, free of charge to qualifying institutions to support teaching, laboratory work and educational research projects. Faculty requests for these materials should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PSoC — Because Change Happens
PSoC solutions bring the flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC to embedded designs without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC integrates configurable analog and digital circuits with an on-chip microcontroller, reducing component count and simplifying revisions. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions, accelerating cycle time and improving quality while reducing board space, power consumption, and system cost.
PSoC "future-proofs" designs, protecting them against last-minute specifications changes. It enables firmware-based changes at any point in the design cycle—even out in the field. All PSoC devices are dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly and to execute tasks with fewer ICs. For more information, please visit www.cypress.com/psoc. Free online training is available at www.cypress.com/psoctraining.
Cypress's University Alliance Program (www.cypress.com/cua) is a multifaceted program empowering electronics engineering and computer science students to develop the skill sets needed to perform in today's marketplace. The program mounts regional design competitions, and offers academic workshops. The university alliance website provides access to myriad free design resources, evaluation boards and online courses.
