Cypress Semiconductor upgrades PSoC Creator Design Environment for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5
PSoC Creator Design Environment version 2.0
Cypress Semiconductor has announced that version 2.0 of its PSoC Creator Design Environment for the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip ranges is available for free download from the company’s website.
PSoC Creator 2.0 introduces support for the production PSoC 5 ARM architecture and devices, as well as enabling customers to inter-operate with the Keil µVision 4 integrated development environment (IDE), helping them to rapidly draw, configure and design custom device hardware in PSoC Creator and then write the application code in the µVision 4 IDE.
The company claims that this new version boosts device performance through timing-driven routing, enabling clock speeds to increase by as much as 20 per cent, while enhanced static timing-analysis tools utilised during the hardware-customisation process guarantee performance across temperature variations and simplify design and debug.
