Kionix, Inc., a pioneer in MEMS product design, process engineering, and quality manufacturing, declared that Cypress Semiconductor Corporation has chosen its KXSC7 accelerometer for utilization in the novel CY8CKIT-014 PSoC 5 FirstTouch Kit for the progressive PSoC 5 system-on-chip programmable design which is driven by the M3 processor, 32-bit ARM Cortex.
According to Gahan Richardson, vice president of PSoC products, Cypress, the addition of KXSC7 Kionix’s accelometer to the PSoC 5 kit offered user-friendliness, less power utility and reduced cost to their products.
Kenny Salky, Vice President, Sales, Kionix commented that the Kionix KXSC7 features the robust blend of ARM and Cypress for the PSoC 5 configuration and that alliance gave rise to a dominant basement for the fabrication experts to structure integrated systems for broad applications in the automotive, healthcare, industrial and electronic sectors
The high quality accelerometers also enable a user-specific bandwidth for the low-pass interior filters upon requirement apart from its less power characteristics. It also provides precise signal-to-noise proportion with high efficiency with respect to the temperature range. The reactivity of the system can be programmed for modifying the requirements of the applications in a range starting from ±2g to ±6g and receive deliver voltages in 1.8 V to 3.6 V ranges.PSoC 5 products supplies digital and analog components that can be programmed, together with an ARM M3 processor with 32-bit capacity. High quality in-built analog peripherals and effective PLD-supported Universal Digital Blocks are also included in it for custom and standard digital external components.
The FirstTouch Starter Kit facilitates the fabricators to get familiarized with the innovative PSoC 5 design. It comprises software and sample projects that give information about the onboard sensors in the kit, including a thermistor, Kionix accelerometer CapSense, and proximity sensing. The kit permits easy installation using 28 common I/O pins, Serial Wire Debugging (SWD) and a wireless 12-pin module header. It also constitutes the IDE for PSoC creation.
