Version 2.0 of Cypress Semiconductor’s PSoC Creator Design environment for the PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 programmable system-on-chip families is now available for free download for all users on the company’s website. Among numerous enhancements, it introduces support for the production PSoC 5 ARM architecture and devices as well as enabling users to interoperate with the Keil µVision 4 integrated development environment. This interoperability enables users to rapidly draw, configure and design custom device hardware in PSoC Creator and then write the application code in the familiar µVision 4 environment. Additionally, Version 2.0 boosts device performance through timing-driven routing, enabling clock speeds to increase by as much as 20%. CYPRESS SEMICONDUCTOR CORP., San Jose, CA. (800) 541-4736.
