Cypress Announces Arm® Cortex™-M3/PSoC® 5 Design Challenge

最近更新: 2018 年 5 月 23 日

Over $10,000 in Prizes Offered for Contest Presented in Conjunction with EE Times and Arm; Contest Entry and Judging at

SAN JOSE, CA, 2010 年 11 月 10 日 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced the Arm® Cortex™M3/ PSoC® 5 Design Challenge, a contest to find the most innovative and useful designs from the millions of possibilities available to designers using the Cypress PSoC 5 architecture powered by the Arm Cortex-M3 processor. The contest, presented in conjunction with EE Times and Arm, kicks off this week at the Arm TechCon, with the Grand Prize to be awarded in May, 2011. A total of over $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded throughout the contest, including the $2,500 Grand Prize. More information, including how to enter the contest and how to become a judge, as well as lively interaction from participants and the engineering community is available at

Judging of the contest entries will be done in three stages:

- Stage 1 - Designers will submit schematic block diagrams and abstracts of their ideas. From these entries, the top 100 will be selected, each of which will be awarded a free PSoC 5 Developer Kit.

- Stage 2 - The first round winners will then submit a video of their completed designs, along with a project file created in Cypress’s PSoC Creator IDE. From this group, four winners from the following categories will be selected and awarded: $1,000: Best Analog Design, Best Digital Design, Best PSoC Creator Component Design, and the Community Choice Design as selected by popular vote of the over 20,000 members of the Cypress Design Community.

- Stage 3 - The Grand Prize will be selected from the four winning designs by an all-star panel of judges, including Cypress President and CEO, T.J. Rodgers; Arm Director of Enterprise and Embedded Solutions, Ian Ferguson; and Brian Fuller, Chief Product Strategist for EE Times.

“The beauty of PSoC is that its flexibility offers literally millions of possibilities, and we know that we can’t possibly uncover all of them, even with some of the most talented engineers in the business,” said Norm Taffe, executive vice president of Cypress’s Consumer and Computation Division. “We look forward to enabling our customers to leverage their creativity and explore what PSoC has to offer.”

“PSoC’s uniquely flexible architecture is an outstanding complement to the performance and low power of our Cortex-M3 processor core,” said Ferguson. “We look forward to a very compelling set of design entries that showcase the strength of this dynamic combination.”

“This will be a fantastic design contest, particularly because the user community will have a strong voice in the outcome,” said Fuller. “The landscape of design is changing rapidly with collaboration across time zones and disciplines leading to very rapid development cycles and incredible innovations. We’re looking forward to being a part of this tremendous collaboration amongst thousands of engineers.”
