Cypress Developer Community™
Adds Over 20 New PSoC Creator™ Videos
Videos Highlight Ease-of-Use, Flexibility of Unique IDE and Powerful PSoC® 3 and 5 Products
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)
–Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq:CY), today announced the release of over 20 new videos that demonstrate the unique functionality of the PSoC Creator™ IDE. The tutorials, which are about one minute in length, cover a range of topics selected to help designers quickly become familiar and productive with the tool. Videos such as Configuring a Component, Creating a Design in One Minute and Using the Component Catalog showcase PSoC Creator’s ease of use and functionality.
“PSoC Creator offers tremendous functionality in an intuitive and easy to use format”
To watch the videos, visit www.cypress.com/go/community, click on the “Videos” tab and search for “Creator.”
PSoC Creator Integrated Development Environment (IDE) was designed for the PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip families.
The unique design software enables engineers to design the way they think, using schematic-based design capture along with certified, pre-packaged peripherals to keep system creation independent of the target PSoC device. Users simply lay out the design just as they would on paper or a whiteboard, and let the tool auto-select it into the correct PSoC configuration. With PSoC Creator, customers create designs according to application requirements, not the limitations of the target device.
More information and free downloads of PSoC Creator are available at www.cypress.com/go/psoccreator.
The Cypress Developer Community™ was created for designers to share design tips, ask questions and find in-depth information on a wide range of Cypress products. In addition to the video library, the website includes forums on a range of applications, as well as product forums including USB controllers, memory, clocks and buffers. The community also offers blog entries from Cypress technical experts, and Cypress’s University Alliance.
“PSoC Creator offers tremendous functionality in an intuitive and easy to use format,” said Mark Saunders, Senior Product Marketing Manager. “We’re pleased that these videos give community members a quick and interesting way to become familiar with the tool and pick up helpful tips.”

About PSoC 3 and PSoC 5
The new PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures include high-precision programmable analog capability (up to 20-bit resolution for an Analog to Digital Converter) and expanded programmable digital resources integrated with powerful, industry-standard MCU cores and ample memory and communications peripherals. The PSoC 3 devices are based on a new, high-performance 8-bit 8051 processor, while the PSoC 5 devices include a powerful 32-bit ARM Cortex™-M3 processor. The new products provide designers with a seamless, programmable design platform, enabling easy migration from 8 to 32 bits.
The robust features of these new solutions dramatically expand the applications and markets that PSoC can address, including automotive, portable medical, industrial and many more.
