What is PSOC?
PSOC, also known as Programmable System-on-Chip, is a family of integrated circuits that is offered by Cypress Semiconductor. PSOC chips include a CPU as well as mixed-signal arrays of configurable integrated analog and digital peripherals. PSOC is similar to a microcontroller where code is executed in order to interact with the user-specified peripheral functions. A PSOC integrated circuit contains a core, configurable digital and analog blocks, programmable routing and interconnect. The differences of PSOC in regards to microcontrollers are the configurable blocks in PSOCs. PSOC devices include up to 12 analog and 16 digital blocks, depending on the device.
Types of PSOC Kits
There are many different kinds of PSOC kits. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by core supported, packaging type and application type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common values for application type are emulator, analog & mixed signal and programmer / debugger.
