Cypress Semiconductor Corp. introduces its next-generation Programmable Radio-System-on-a-Chip. The single-chip PRoC LP integrates the proven, robust WirelessUSB LP 2.4-GHz transceiver with the award-winning, low-cost encore II 8-bit Flash microcontroller (MCU). PRoC LP simplifies coding and board layout to cut design time and reduce board space requirements for innovative, small form-factor wireless Human Interface Devices (HID) such as mice, presenter tools and RF remote controls. PRoC LP offers a reduced component count versus competing solutions, reducing the overall bill of materials (BOM) for HID applications. The device uses patented frequency agile Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) technology to offer best-in-class interference immunity for wireless systems operating in the worldwide 2.4-GHz ISM band, making it ideal for crowded RF environments.
