Analogue coprocessor ‘simplifies’ multiple sensor interfaces

An addition to Cypress’ PSoC portfolio is said to simplify the design of systems that require multiple sensors.

The PSoC Analog Coprocessor integrates programmable analogue blocks, including a Universal Analog Block (UAB), which the company says can be configured using GUI-based software components. This allows engineers to design custom analogue front ends for sensor interfaces.

“The PSoC Analog Coprocessor makes sensor interface design accessible to embedded systems engineers without requiring expertise in analogue system design,” said John Weil, vice president of MCU marketing at Cypress. “This comes with the added benefit of enabling rapid prototyping and design iterations in software with no hardware changes by simply modifying components in PSoC Creator.”

Based on an ARM Cortex-M0+ CPU, the Analog Coprocessor is said to deliver a low cost, fully programmable analogue front end with opamps, programmable gain amplifiers, analogue multiplexers, analogue filters and A/D and D/A converters.
