New PSoC 4 L-Series

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. recently introduced the PSoC 4 L-Series, which is an integrated single-chip solution with a 32-bit ARM-Cortex-M0 core. It features 256-KB flash memory, 98 general-purpose I/Os, 33 programmable analog and digital blocks, a USB device controller, and a control area network (CAN) interface. The PSoC 4 L-Series is well-suited for industrial and consumer applications requiring reliable user interfaces.Cypress PSOC 4 L

The PSoC 4 L-Series delivers up to 13 programmable analog blocks including 4 high-performance opamps, four current-output digital-to-analog converters (IDACs), two low-power comparators, a 12-bit SAR ADC and dual CapSense blocks with up to 94 capacitive-sensing channels. The programmable analog blocks enable you to create on-chip, custom analog front ends.

The PSoC 4 L-Series delivers up to 20 programmable digital blocks including eight timer/counter/PWM blocks, four serial communication blocks, and eight Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs)—programmable digital blocks that each contain two programmable logic devices, a programmable data path, and status and control registers. UDBs can be configured as coprocessors to offload compute-intensive tasks from the ARM Cortex-M0 core. The blocks also enable you to implement custom digital peripherals, state machines, or glue logic. Traditional microcontrollers typically require additional ICs to implement this functionality. The scalable PSoC 4 architecture is complemented by the easy-to-use PSoC Creator IDE and PSoC Components—free embedded ICs represented by an icon in the IDE.

The PSoC 4 L-Series is currently sampling with production expected in the first quarter of 2016. Parts will be available in 48-pin TQFP, 64-pin TQFP, 68-pin QFN and 124-pin VFBGA packages.
