New Cypress PSoC® 5LP Family With ARM® Cortex™-M3 Processor Powers High-Precision Programmable Analog With a Single-Cell Battery, Advancing Embedded Design
Devices Offer 0.5-V startup with Integrated Boost, 300nA Low-Leakage Hibernate Mode and 20+ Programmable Analog Components, Including Best-in-Class ADCs
When Precision Measurements Really Matter
PSoC 5LP offers programmable analog precision with differential 12-bit SARs and a 20-bit DelSig ADC supported by a class leading 1.024V±0.1% accurate internal voltage reference. The best-in-class ADCs includes 62 channels, fully functional analog from 1.71 - 5.5V and the widest input signal range from 0 - 5.5V of any ARM Cortex-M device. The wide variety of PSoC Creator programmable analog Components include OpAmps, Comparators, Trans Impedance Amplifiers (TIAs), Programmable Gain Amplifiers (PGAs), Mixers, Segment LCDs, CapSense® touch sensing, DACs, Analog Muxes and more. All of the Components are configurable to meet individual application requirements to deliver a single chip solution.
When Low Power Isn't Enough
PSoC 5LP was designed to deliver more than just standard low power
consumption. Consuming only 300 nA in Hibernate mode, the new devices
can wake-up on IOs and retain the state of the CPU core,
When Fixed-Function MCUs Fail to Deliver
PSoC 5LP offers programmable analog and digital with flexible routing and interconnect in easy-to-use Components within PSoC Creator. Designers can easily build their own custom embedded controller, implementing standard and proprietary protocols with immunity to specification changes. With the ability to customize logic functions, peripherals, the analog front-end and analog subsystems, designers can achieve greater system integration and a reduced system bill of materials. PSoC enables designers to solve complex problems easily with more than 80 pre-verified, production-ready Components.
PSoC Creator allows users to configure PSoC programmable hardware into a personalized, one-chip solution. The free IDE comes with production ready Components and APIs for easy and fast configuration of the device, and enables users to create and replicate their own custom Components.
"Precision measurement and low power consumption are critical features
for embedded designers, but until now they have been mutually
MCUs Can't. PSoC Can.
PSoC devices employ a highly configurable system-on-chip architecture for embedded control design, offering a flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC devices integrate configurable analog and digital circuits, controlled by an on-chip microcontroller, providing both enhanced design revision capability and component count savings. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions saving customers design time, board space and power consumption while improving system quality and reducing system cost.
The flexible PSoC resources allow designers to future-proof their products by enabling firmware-based changes during design, validation, production, and even in the field. The unique PSoC flexibility shortens design cycle time and allows for late-breaking feature enhancements. All PSoC devices are also dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to morph internal resources on-the-fly, utilizing fewer components to perform a given task.
