Interfacing External Memory to PSoC1

Question: Can external memory be connected to the PSoC to store data?



Yes.  You can use external memories with I2C, SPI or parallel interface to the PSoC.  PSoC has the I2C and SPIM user modules using which serial memories may be accessed.  Also, parallel memories can be accessed by generating the necessary Address, Data and Control signals using the GPIO.  The following example project demonstrates how to interface a PSoC to an I2C EEPROM.

Also, using the EEPROM user module a part of the internal Flash may be used to store configuration data
