could you point me to the specific document and paragraph that triggered this post?
Currently there is no silicon generated serial number in a PSoC device. Have you considered to use a company-wide pool of serial numbers that have to be requested at time of programming and then program the serial number in the NV-memory on the PSoC?
I am aware that it is more convenient to get a unique number to begin with, not having to care about the logistics behind it but we are not able to offer this feature.
Yeah, I was wondering how you planned to do it...
Here's a screenshot of the PSoC Creator dialog for configuring the USBFS component: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/819/dialogr.png/

Thank you for the reference, I did some digging too. What I learned is that there is indeed a serial number in the chip but under some circumstances it could re-appear in another device. There is a roll-over mechanism.
I forwarded your question and will keep you posted if such a feature becomes available (fully documented).
