Cypress rolls out new USBs and MCUs

enCoRe MCUs include oscillator and integrated pull-up resistor to reduce component count

By CBR Staff Writer

Cypress Semiconductor has rolled out new enCoRe V USB peripheral microcontrollers (MCUs) and enCoRe V LV (Low Voltage) wireless MCUs.

The new integrated families reportedly offer up to 32 KB of Flash memory, three 16-bit timers and up to 36 general purpose I/Os (GPIOs) to suit enhanced multimedia features in human interface devices (HIDs).

Cypress also released the CY3660 enCoRe V / LV Development Kit, which is expected to shorten the design time of laser mice, gaming controllers and keyboards, wireless dongles, remote controls, mobile handset accessories and point-of-sale devices.

Cypress said that the in-system reprogrammable enCoRe V and enCoRe V LV MCUs provide designers with a 10-bit ADC and flash memory with EEPROM emulation. The enCoRe V devices also include eight USB endpoints. All enCoRe MCUs include the company’s oscillator and integrated pull-up resistor to reduce component count and BOM cost.

The company said that the CY3660 enCoRe V / LV Development Kit includes an In-Circuit Emulator (ICE) that works in conjunction with silicon to provide the development system. The new kit also comes with license-free PSoC designer software which consists a graphical user interface, assembler, C compiler, and a linker and debugger for an integrated code development environment.

The CY3660 development kit includes: two DVK boards (enCoRe V and enCoRe V LV development boards); two wirelessUSB LP radio modules; two 12V power supplies and a USB type A to mini-B cable; and LCD module for data display and prototyping, the company said.
