Infineon extends support for PSoC 6 MCUs with Embedded Wizard Studio

1 min read

Infineon Technologies has enhanced the PSoC 6 family of microcontrollers (MCUs) extending graphical and tools support via the Embedded Wizard’s graphics library and studio tool.

Wizard’s Graphics Engine is Modus Toolbox compatible and runs on the CY8CKIT-062S2-43012 development kit with a complete user guide and support for Embedded Wizard Studio.

PSoC 6 designers will be able to improve the end-user experience with graphic interfaces (GUIs) that can be deployed to their hardware with a smaller memory footprint for use cases such as voice and graphics targeting wearables and white appliances.

“Designers now have a larger set of software tools to support high-performance graphics for their PSoC 6 MCU applications with Embedded Wizard,” explained Danny Watson, Principal Software Product Marketing Manager at Infineon. “Our PSoC 6 family delivers easy-to-use, low-power IoT applications with a unique consumer experience for battery-powered applications. We are thrilled to offer the complete Embedded Wizard tool suite with our PSoC 6 family.”

Embedded Wizard is a TARA Systems’ embedded GUI technology that enables designers to create platform-independent, high-performance GUIs on resource-constrained MCUs. By using Embedded Wizard, designers can now use their tools to generate new graphic interfaces and deploy them to their PSoC 6 MCUs. In addition, designers can still run existing graphical demonstrations on their PSoC hardware.

The PSoC 6 architecture is built on an ultra-low-power 40-nm process technology, and the MCUs leverage low-power design techniques to extend battery life up to a full week for secured wearables.

A choice of dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 or Cortex-M0+ architecture lets designers simultaneously optimise for power and performance. Designers can use the MCU’s software-defined peripherals to create custom analogue front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays.

The PSoC 6 MCU also features the latest generation of Infineon CAPSENSE capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces.
