View Full Version : Anyone use Cypress PSoC 5?

I recently stumbled across the Cypress PSoC CY8C52LPxxx chips, which look very interesting. A 32-bit ARM3 integrated with PLD array and the usual peripherals. Separate digital I/O supply rail that can be run at 5V (not just 5V tolerant, but the outputs will present a high level of 0.7*Vddio, or 3.5V at 5V. Fairly generous SRAM with support for external RAM; runs at around 67 MHz.

What do you think?

Interesting. Are there any cheap evaluation boards / kits?
What tools / toolchain(s) are available to program this? Only manufacturers proprietary tools, or support for gcc or other open source tools?

Looks interesting. I'll have to read more about this device family.

Only dev kit I've found so far (haven't really looked around yet) is the CY8CKIT-050 PSoCŪ 5LP Development Kit for $99
