Cypress Introduces Ultra Low-Power PSoC ® 1 Devices With Integrated USB

CY8C24x93 Devices Ideal for Fast, Cost-Efficient Development of Battery-Powered Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NAS: CY) today announced a new device series in its PSoC® 1programmable system-on-chip family. The new CY8C24x93 device series, the lowest-power and lowest-cost devices in the PSoC 1 family, is optimized for battery-powered applications, leveraging a 1.1 µA Standby mode and 100 nA Deep-Sleep mode to extend battery life. The family integrates Full Speed USB 2.0 with a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), enabling streamlined, cost-efficient design with programmable serial bridges.

The CY8C24x93 PSoC 1 devices come in multiple small-footprint packaging options, including a 3x3 mm2 QFN package. The devices integrate a 10-bit ADC and two comparators, along with 16-bit timers. The combination of the small package sizes and analog resources make the family ideal for integrated, space-constrained system solutions that involve basic analog signal processing, such as data loggers and thermistor hubs. More information on the CY8C24x93 family is available at

PSoC 1 devices are supported by Cypress's revolutionary PSoC Designer™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE). The IDE features pre-verified, production-ready User Modules—free "Virtual Chips" within a PSoC 1 device that replace and integrate multiple competitor chips to create custom solutions. Designers can accelerate system bring-up and time-to-market by dropping in user modules to implement a wide range of functionality, including a Full Speed USB 2.0 slave, an SPI or I2C interface, an incremental Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC), or a Seven-Segment LCD display.

"Our new PSoC 1 family's low-power consumption, small QFN packages and intelligent mix of peripherals make the devices a perfect fit for portable data loggers, USB-to-SPI converters and much more," said Kapil Rai, Senior Director of PSoC 1 Products at Cypress. "Our PSoC 1 devices deliver simplified design and fast time-to-market by leveraging Cypress's PSoC Designer 5.4 IDE and its drag-and-drop user modules."

The CY8C24x93 family comes in 8-, 16-, and 32-KB Flash options. The devices also support a wide operating range, allowing full analog and digital operation from 1.71V to 5.5V.


The CY8C24x93 family is available starting at $0.50 each for 10,000 unit quantities. Sample and production orders are available today.

Demonstration kits are available for lead customers by contacting a local Cypress sales representative or by emailing Pre-orders for the Development kit start from September 12, 2013 at and at

MCUs Can't. PSoC Can.

PSoC solutions bring the flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC to embedded designs without lead-time or NRE penalties. PSoC integrates configurable analog and digital circuits with an on-chip microcontroller, reducing component count and simplifying revisions. A single PSoC device can integrate as many as 100 peripheral functions, accelerating cycle time and improving quality while reducing board space, power consumption, and system cost.

PSoC "future-proofs" designs, protecting them against last-minute specifications changes. It enables firmware-based changes at any point in the design cycle—even out in the field. All PSoC devices are dynamically reconfigurable, enabling designers to transform resources on-the-fly and to execute tasks with fewer ICs.
