 PSoC 3 Development Board

The low-cost PSoC 3 development board unveiled by Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and Future Electronics promises the power and flexibility to develop simplified designs using the Cypress's PSoC 3 architecture and the PSoC Creator Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

The development board features an on-board debug/programmer; a CapSense touch pad interface; red, green and blue LEDs; a user USB interface; power through USB ports; two connectors for I/Os and expansion boards; and an optional CAN oscillator.

Two expansion board kit connectors on the board enable it to work with a growing ecosystem of solution-based expansion kits that Cypress is developing, including segment LCD, CAN and more. Future will also be developing an expansion board for the new Sharp Pixel in Memory LCD with power consumption 130 times lower than standard LCDs of comparable size.

"We're pleased to offer our customers a low-cost entry point to experience how Cypress's PSoC platform provides the power and flexibility to develop innovative products and get to market fast," said Frantz Saintellemy, chief technical officer at Future Electronics. "We're also looking forward to providing hands-on demonstrations through our free, onsite trainings."

"Future Electronics has created another excellent development tool for PSoC designers around the world," said Geoff Charubin, VP of worldwide distribution for Cypress. "We are excited to see the response for the new board and training programmes from customers who have come to trust Future's strong technical support."

Future Electronics is offering free onsite demonstrations of the PSoC Creator software and the Future Electronics PSoC 3 Development Board

The Cypress CY8CKIT-001 PSoC Development Kit is priced at Rs.11,627.84 ($249) and is available from Future Electronics.
