PSoC™ 4: 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M0 MCU subcategories
PSoC™ 4 has tackled some of the complex portions of embedded system design making it easier for you to get your product to market. Functions such as analog sensor integration, capacitive touch, and wireless connectivity have been integrated and optimized in PSoC™ 4 to just work.
The PSoC™ 4 portfolio consists of several families of Arm® Cortex®-M0 and Cortex-M0+ microcontrollers. Most devices in the portfolio include Infineon's CapSense technology for capacitive-sensing applications. Other key features in the PSoC™ 4 portfolio include a customizable analog front end through programmable analog blocks as well as wired and wireless connectivity options such as USB, CAN, and Bluetooth Low Energy. These unique features make PSoC 4 the industry’s most flexible and scalable low-power mixed-signal architecture.
Achieve ultimate flexibility in your design with Infineon's software-defined peripherals embedded in the PSoC™ 4 architecture. Configure these peripherals using pre-built library functions or create your own using the programmable architecture inside of PSoC™ 4 devices:
Infineon's CAPSENSE™ is the industry-leading capacitive-sensing solution for touch buttons and sliders, proximity sensing, and liquid-level sensing applications. CapSense is a dedicated peripheral found across the entire PSoC™ 4 portfolio featuring state-of-the-art noise immunity and water rejection.
Programmable analog blocks
Customize your analog front end to interface to any analog sensor through programmable analog blocks, which are composed of an assortment of opamps, comparators, ADCs, and DACs, enabling complex analog signal flows. PSoC™ 4 can also eliminate the need for external analog components saving you time and money.
Programmable digital blocks
Programmable digital blocks are composed of Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs), Serial Communication Blocks (SCBs), and Timer/Counter/Pulse Width Modulators (TCPWM). These blocks can be configured to set up custom digital interfaces, state machines, and custom logic functions.
Wired and wireless connectivity
Wired connectivity interfaces, such as CAN and USB, are available in the PSoC™ 4 portfolio. For wireless connectivity, Bluetooth® low energy is also available. With an integrated balun for antenna matching, PSoC™ 4 BLE simplifies RF board design and reduces PCB footprint. With example projects and development kits, as well as all BLE profiles and APIs, you can get BLE connectivity and running in a matter of minutes.
