PSoC® 4: PSoC 4200DS Family
Cypress provides a wealth of data at www.cypress.com to help you to select the right PSoC device for your design, and to help you
to quickly and effectively integrate the device into your design. For a comprehensive list of resources, see the knowledge base article
KBA86521, How to Design with PSoC 3, PSoC 4, and PSoC 5LP. Following is an abbreviated list for PSoC 4:
■ Overview: PSoC Portfolio, PSoC Roadmap
■ Product Selectors: PSoC 1, PSoC 3, PSoC 4, PSoC 5LP
In addition, PSoC Creator includes a device selection tool.
■ Application notes: Cypress offers a large number of PSoC
application notes covering a broad range of topics, from basic
to advanced level. Recommended application notes for getting
started with PSoC 4 are:
❐ AN79953: Getting Started With PSoC 4
❐ AN88619: PSoC 4 Hardware Design Considerations
❐ AN86439: Using PSoC 4 GPIO Pins
❐ AN57821: Mixed Signal Circuit Board Layout
❐ AN81623: Digital Design Best Practices
❐ AN73854: Introduction To Bootloaders
❐ AN89610: ARM Cortex Code Optimization
■ Technical Reference Manual (TRM) is in two documents:
❐ Architecture TRM details each PSoC 4 functional block.
❐ Registers TRM describes each of the PSoC 4 registers.
■ Development Kits:
❐ CY8CKIT-042, PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit, is an easy-to-use and
inexpensive development platform. This kit includes
connectors for Arduino™ compatible shields and Digilent®
Pmod™ daughter cards.
❐ CY8CKIT-049 is a very low-cost prototyping platform. It is a
low-cost alternative to sampling PSoC 4 devices.
❐ CY8CKIT-001 is a common development platform for any
one of the PSoC 1, PSoC 3, PSoC 4, or PSoC 5LP families
The MiniProg3 device provides an interface for flash
programming and debug.
PSoC Creator is a free Windows-based Integrated Design Environment (IDE). It enables concurrent hardware and firmware design
of PSoC 3, PSoC 4, and PSoC 5LP based systems. Create designs using classic, familiar schematic capture supported by over 100
pre-verified, production-ready PSoC Components; see the list of component datasheets. With PSoC Creator, you can:
1. Drag and drop component icons to build your hardware
system design in the main design workspace
2. Codesign your application firmware with the PSoC hardware,
using the PSoC Creator IDE C compiler
3. Configure components using the configuration tools
4. Explore the library of 100+ components
5. Review component datasheets
