Systems-on-chip (SoCs) are one of the hottest areas in the semiconductor industry today, replacing the ubiquitous microcontroller in many embedded applications. These powerful components combine the microprocessor, memories, and peripherals in short, the whole system on a single piece of silicon. Due to its low price and extreme flexibility, one of the most popular and innovative SoCs available is Cypress's software-reconfigurable Programmable SoC(PSoC). The PSoC has blocks of digital and analog logic that can be reconfigured to perform multiple functions, which makes it useful in a broad range of embedded system applications. This book is about designing, programming, and developing with the PSoC. As with other microcontroller titles in our Embedded Technology series, this book offers a more complete combination of technical data, example code, and descriptive prose than is available from manufacturer reference information, and is useful to both professionals and hobbyists.Intended for embedded engineers who are new to the embedded field, or for the thousands of engineers who have experience with other microcontrollers but are new to programmable SoCs, the book offers a thorough and practical description of the device features, gives development guidelines, and provides design examples. Code examples are used in virtually every chapter, and are included with the book on the companion CD-ROM. *The first independent technical reference available on the pSoC, a product line experiencing explosive growth in the embedded design world *Application examples, sample code, and design tips and techniques will get readers get up-to-speed quickly *Companion cd-rom includes all example code from book, so that engineers can easily adapt it to their own designs... to the continuous time analog block to the output of the block without going through the operational amplifier within the block. ... For example, with some projects that used the 25xxx/26xxx series parts, Cypress suggested that I use the test mux to ... When using a digital timing block for its duty cycle capabilities, you should note that the different compare conditions change the formula for the duty cycle.
