The PSoC 4700 inductive sensing solution is supported in Cypress’ PSoC Creator™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE), which allows users to drag and drop production-ready hardware blocks, including the new inductive sensing capability, into a design and easily configure them via a simple graphical user interface. More information on the PSoC 4700 series, the inductive sensing solution and registration for the early access program for kits and collateral is available at www.cypress.com/PSoC4700.
“Customers want to improve the aesthetics and reliability of their products with high-quality metallic user interfaces,” said
The PSoC 4700 MCUs are based on a 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M0+ core and integrate programmable analog and digital blocks. The devices can support up to 16 sensors to implement digital functions or custom algorithms for interfaces in various form-factors, including buttons, linear and rotary encoders, proximity sensing or free-form. The PSoC 4700 inductive-sensing solution provides superior noise immunity for reliable operation, even in extreme environmental conditions. The highly integrated solution enables cost-efficient system designs by reducing bill-of-material costs.
Cypress’ free PSoC Creator IDE simplifies system design by enabling concurrent hardware and firmware development using PSoC Components—embedded ICs represented by an icon in the IDE. Engineers can easily configure the programmable analog and digital blocks in PSoC by dragging and dropping components on the PSoC Creator schematic and customizing them with graphical component configuration tools. The tool features auto-calibration that automatically compensates for manufacturing variations.
The PSoC 4700 series is sampling now to lead customers with production expected in the third quarter of 2018. Early adopters are invited to register for more information at www.cypress.com/PSoC4700Registration.
