NUREMBERG, Germany, Feb. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For designers of connected devices from smart home appliances to wearable fitness trackers to factory automation equipment, the interconnectivity of the Internet of Things (IoT) is largely outweighed by the specific application requirements they must address. Embedded solutions provider Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) is addressing the diversity of the IoT, and common design concerns such as time to market and power consumption, with its expanded portfolio of ARM®-Cortex®-M-based PSoC® programmable system-on-chip devices, microcontrollers (MCUs) and Bluetooth Low Energy solutions.
Since its merger with Spansion in March 2015, Cypress has introduced more than 180 new devices in its PSoC 4 family and more than 150 new devices in the FM4 and FM0+ Flexible Microcontroller families originally developed by Spansion. Here at the Embedded World 2016 exhibition, Cypress has continued this expansion with the launch of its PSoC 4 S-Series devices for Industrial Internet systems, wearable electronics, home appliances and other consumer applications. Additionally at Embedded World, Cypress is demonstrating a new version of its easy-to-use PSoC Creator™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE) that now supports its FM families, starting with the FM0+ devices. PSoC Creator simplifies system design and accelerates time-to-market by enabling concurrent hardware and firmware design. More information on Cypress's PSoC 4 and FM families can be found at http://www.cypress.com/PSoC4 and http://www.cypress.com/mcu.
"We have completed the hard work on Cypress's merger and integration with Spansion, and we are now firing on all cylinders with a stronger mix of products, especially for our focus automotive and industrial markets, as well as for the Internet of Things," said Hassane El-Khoury, Executive Vice President of the Programmable Systems Division at Cypress. "We are driven to continue expanding our portfolio of embedded solutions with new features and capabilities to help our customers create innovative and differentiated products. A premier example was the recent introduction of our first Traveo™ automotive MCUs on 40-nm process technology, which marks a key step in the evolution of our broader MCU and PSoC portfolio."
Cypress is demonstrating its portfolio of PSoC, MCU, Bluetooth Low Energy, memory and energy-harvesting Power Management IC (PMIC) solutions for the IoT, along with its automotive and USB-C solutions, at Embedded World in booth number 148, located in Hall 4A, at the Nuremberg Messe in Germany.
