    Getting started with PowerPSoC

      PowerPSoC is the first device to combine the power of an embedded controller with integrated high-power peripheral functionality. This includes four internal 32V, 1A rated low-side n-channel MOSFETs, four 32V, 6 MHz rated current sense amplifiers with adjustable gain settings, four 2 MHz hysteretic controllers that can be configured as either buck, boost, or buck-boost, and a 32V input voltage regulator. Due to the flexibility of working with the already integrated power of PSoC®, PowerPSoC offers additional functionality including Cypress’s CapSenseTM, and additional digital (PWMs, timers, counters), analog (ADCs, PGAs), and communication (DMX512, DALI, SP I, RS -232) options. The ability to reconfigure power with this level of integration can simplify hardware design, lower testing time, and decrease bill-of-materials costs.
