New UDB Editor Streamlines Creation of Reusable Customized PSoC
Release Enables Export to Leading ARM® Toolsets – IAR, Keil and Eclipse
The Windows-based PSoC Creator IDE includes more than 110 PSoC Components—pre-verified “virtual chips” represented by an icon—that users can drag-and-drop into a design and configure to suit a broad array of application requirements. PSoC Creator 3.0 simplifies the creation of custom digital PSoC Components by adding a full state machine diagramming tool for the UDB datapath, and it allows creation with Verilog as in previous versions. Custom PSoC Components facilitate designs for diverse global teams and enable reuse of encapsulated hardware and firmware for future designs.
“Cypress brings silicon quality into our software, running thousands of hours of testing for every release on every feature to make sure they work in customer designs,” said
PSoC Creator 3.0 reduces the generated code size for ARM M-class processors, such as PSoC 4 and PSoC 5LP, by integrating two optimization tools: the GCC version 4.7 ARM embedded compiler and Newlib-nano libraries. The new release also streamlines coding with improved editor functions, including an auto-complete feature that lets users utilize the dynamically generated software APIs without needing to open datasheets. Developers can now create their hardware schematic designs in PSoC Creator 3.0, automatically generate a full custom datasheet, and then seamlessly export to IAR, Keil, or Eclipse IDEs to develop firmware.
