AN77759 briefly introduces you to PSoC® 5; if you are looking at PSoC 5 for the first time, this is an excellent place to start.
In this Application Note you briefly learn about PSoC 5 and PSoC Creator™, an interactive integrated development environment (IDE) and graphical design tool that you use to develop your system-on-chip project.
In addition, this application note walks you through an example project for PSoC 5. Through this project example, PSoC Creator is introduced. The first part of the project guides you on how to blink an LED like a typical MCU. In the second part you develop a "breathing" LED using the Programmable-System-On-Chip concept.
An additional bonus project is included with this application note that takes a design example a little farther than simply blinking LEDs. The bonus project uses some of the mixed signal functionality of PSoC 5 to create an ambient light/dark detector using one of the LEDs on the CY8CKIT-050 demonstration board.
