Future Electronics Announces New PSoC 6 Microcontroller Architecture from Cypress

Montreal, Canada – May 11, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced it will be carrying the new PSoC® 6 microcontroller from Cypress Semiconductor Corp., with samples available now, and full production planned for the fourth quarter of 2017.

The new PSoC 6 offers the lowest power and most flexible MCU architecture in the industry, and sets a new standard for battery-powered, secure IoT devices. Its game-changing architecture uses a dual-core ARM® Cortex®-M processing platform and integrates critical hardware-based security and connectivity for the Internet of Things.

The new architecture from Cypress is built on an ultra-low-power 40-nm process technology, delivering the industry’s lowest power and most flexibility, with integrated security features required for next-generation IoT devices. The architecture fills a gap in the IoT solution space between power-hungry and higher-cost application processors and performance-challenged, single-core MCUs, with its dual-core ARM® Cortex®-M4 and Cortex®-M0+ architecture, enabling designers to optimize both power and performance.

“With billions of potential vulnerabilities, security is paramount and the need to design in security at the lowest level in an IoT device is more important than ever,” said John Weil, Vice President of the MCU Business Unit at Cypress. “We built PSoC 6 to enable our customers to protect their products from cyber-attacks while at the same time empowering them to create new, innovative IoT devices leveraging the ultra-low-power, flexible and easy-to-use PSoC architecture.”
