Countdown to 1 Billion
Cypress is nearing the 1 billion unit mark in shipments of PSoC® devices, the world’s only programmable analog and digital embedded design platform.
To celebrate the event, Cypress has posted an active counter on its website at www.cypress.com. There you can guess the exact date and time when we reach the 1 billion milestone. The winning entry will receive a new NOOK™ Color eReader with Cypress’s PSoC-based TrueTouch® touchscreen controller.
New PSoC® Development Kit for Precision Analog Temperature Sensing
The new CY8CKIT-025 Development Kit for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures enables you to measure temperature accurately with a 0.1 degree C resolution with any of four different temperature sensors, including a thermocouple, a diode, a thermistor and a resistance temperature detector (RTD).
The CY8CKIT-025 PSoC Kit leverages the integrated 20-bit Delta Sigma ADC in the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures, which delivers better than 18-bit effective number of bits (ENOB) performance. It is designed for use with the CY8CKIT-030 PSoC 3 Development Kit, the CY8CKIT-050 PSoC 5 Development Kit, or the CY8CKIT-001 PSoC Development Kit (all sold separately). The new kit includes each of the four different types of analog temperature sensors, along with a bonus CY8CKIT-012 PSoC Prototyping and Development Expansion Board.

Weekly Live Webinars Shed Light on Designing with PSoC
Each week, Cypress Application Engineers offer free, live webinars for interested designers. These informative, 30-minute webinars cover a wide range of topics, including applications, design examples, PSoC Creator tips, and more.
The webinars are presented via WebEx and use VoIP so it’s easy to watch them from your desk. For topics, dates and times and to register for an upcoming webinar, visit http://www.cypress.com/?rID=51939
Cypress and Redpine Signals Team up on Embedded WiFi Solutions
Cypress and Redpine Signals have made it easy for you to add low-power, single-stream 802.11n Wi-Fi capability to embedded systems with PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices.
You can now pair Redpine’s Connect-io-n™ modules with your PSoC design. The certified Connect-io-n modules work seamlessly with Cypress’s PSoC platforms to implement single-stream 802.11n connectivity in a smaller space and at lower cost than legacy 802.11b and 802.11g modules.
