Development Kit for Cypress's New PSoC 4 Architecture Now Available Globally for Pre-Order from Premier Farnell

LONDON, April 24, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —

Premier Farnell and Cypress Semiconductor Corp . (NASDAQ: CY) announced today that customers can now pre-order the new PSoC® 4 Pioneer Development Kit from element14. The powerful new kit costs only $25, and lets designers discover the capabilities of the new PSoC 4 programmable system-on-chip architecture, which combines Cypress's best-in-class PSoC analog and digital fabric with ARM®'s power-efficient Cortex™-M0 core.

The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is highly expandable. It includes connectors for Arduino-compatible shields and Digilent® PMOD™ daughter cards, enabling customers to pick from a variety of third-party expansion boards. In addition, an onboard PSoC 5LP device serves as the programmer and debugger, eliminating the need for external programmers.

"PSoC 4 is a game-changing product that marries PSoC's unique programmable analog and digital fabric with the powerful, economical ARM Cortex-M0 processor," said John Weil, senior director of PSoC Marketing for Cypress. "This new PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is the perfect development platform for this architecture because it provides tremendous functionality at a low price. We're very pleased to partner with Premier Farnell to help satisfy pent-up demand for this product from customers who want to be among the first to try PSoC 4."

"The PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit is exactly the type of innovative product that our customers want: flexible, cost-effective and expandable with open-source architectures," said David Shen, Group CTO at Premier Farnell. "We are extremely pleased to collaborate with Cypress to introduce this new product to the market and excited about the opportunities this versatile new product brings to the design engineers. As the first channel partner taking pre-orders for this kit, we're expecting it to be in very high demand by designers everywhere."

The new PSoC 4 device class will challenge proprietary 8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), along with other 32-bit devices. Cypress's platform solution PSoC 4, PSoC Creator and PSoC Components simplifies and accelerates the design process, reduces bills of material, and provides extraordinary system value. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions, and "future-proofs" designs, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly.
