USB Low-Full-High Speed Peripherals

I have a customer is  currently using the CY7C65215 for a single UART channel.  They are planning to expend this design to use the second SCB as I2C while keeping the UART working on the first SCB.  They are using this device in a Linux environment (we pre-programmed the device in a Windows environment).

The questions are if Cypress software supports using both the UART and I2C concurrently. There are also two devices; CY7C65215 and CY7C65215A. The datasheet display some differences, but not with much details. Shall I assemble an A version if I want to use both UART and I2C at the same time? 

Can you elaborate on the differences between the non A and A device?  Which one should they select going forward?

Thanks,

Mike Roberts

Hello Mike,

Both the CY7C65215 and CYC65215A parts support UART and I2C simultaneously on the two SCBs. We however recommend using the CY7C65215A part going forward since there are a few bug fixes in the firmware apart from the additional features listed in the datasheet.

Best Regards,
