Why use Cypress PSoC 6?


#1

PSoC 6 bridges the gap between expensive, power hungry application processors and low‑performance microcontrollers (MCUs). The ultra‑low‑power PSoC 6 MCU architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices, eliminating the tradeoffs between power and performance. The PSoC 6 MCU contains a dual‑core architecture, with both cores on a single chip. It has an Arm® Cortex®‑M4 for high‑performance tasks, and an Arm® Cortex®‑M0+ for low-power tasks, and with security built-in, your IoT system is protected.

Onethinx Core Module uses the Arm® Cortex®‑M0+ core for the LoRaWAN stack, while the Arm® Cortex®‑M4 is accessible to the user. The Cypress PSoC6 configurable analog and digital blocks ensures an easy and direct connection to virtually any sensor without the need of additional components.
