    Re: Learning psoc technology

    A long time ago I had the opportunity to work with the Cypress PSoC3 familly core, with one of the top member from CY8C4xxx which had both analog and digital cells, but that was essentially a microcontroller with a limited amount of reconfigurable hardware resources. With it I was able to build interesting hardware modules, such as a 24bit counter in one project, 3 UARTs in another, and that was just a sample of what it is capable of. If your goal is learning and make touch with different technologies, I consider it a good start, since the IDE is very easy to work, allowing the 'assembly' and assigning of modules to I/O's quite user-friendly through a graphical interface.

    I started with Cypress CY8KIT-059
    its is inexpensive, the software is pretty good, it is similar to the part(s) andre describes
    the user group is useful

    Re: Learning psoc technology

    I am thinking of getting the Cypress CY8KIT-059. What else do I need to get with it?. self powered USB hub?. does Cypress CY8KIT-059 has all I would need?.

    Re: Learning psoc technology

    At a glance seems a good choice to start since this development kit is made with the CY8C5888LTI-LP097 microcontroller, which has built in either an A/D and D/A converter along with a considerable amount of programmable digital blocks.
