Cypress Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) has released new components for PSoC Creator 2.2, the integrated design environment (IDE) for Cypress’s PSoC 3, PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP programmable system-on-chip architectures. The Component Pack 6 update includes four new PSoC Components—pre-verified “virtual chips” represented by an icon—that users can drag-and-drop into a design and configure to suit a broad array of application requirements. Leveraging PSoC's hardware programmability, the update delivers new peripheral functions to existing PSoC devices, speeding time-to-market while adding differentiation to end-products. Features include:
- Simple transmit universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter.
- Emulated EEPROM.
- Segment/matrix LED driver, enabling fast prototyping of displays
- SC/CT comparator, enabling switched-capacitor/continuous-time hardware blocks to be used as comparators.
