Electronics Weekly Names Cypress's PowerPSoC® Family of Integrated Embedded Power Controllers as Finalist for 2009 Elektra Award

最近更新: 2009 年 10 月 19 日

Market’s First Single-Chip Solution for Controlling and Driving High-Power LEDs
Competing for “Power Systems Product of the Year”

SAN JOSE Calif., 2009 年 10 月 20 日 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced Electronics Weekly magazine of the United Kingdom has selected Cypress’s PowerPSoC® family of integrated embedded power controllers as a 2009 Elektra Award finalist for “Power Systems Product of the Year.”The solution is the industry’s first single-chip solution for both controlling and driving high-power LEDs. The PowerPSoC family integrates four constant-current regulators and four 32V MOSFETs with Cypress’s PSoC® programmable system-on-chip, which includes programmable analog and digital blocks, a microcontroller, and memory.

This unprecedented level of integration provides customers with a single-chip solution for high-quality LED-based lighting products, and extends into other embedded applications such as white goods and industrial control. The result is end systems with fewer components, faster design cycles, lower power consumption and higher reliability. More information on the PowerPSoC family is available at

An independent panel of judges selected the finalists for the Elektra Awards, which will be presented in a ceremony in London on December 1. Now in its seventh year, the categories of the Elektra Awards have been enhanced to reflect the strength of innovation in semiconductor design and the growing importance of applications such as LED lighting and renewable energy technologies.

“We are honored to have the PowerPSoC family named as a finalist for the Elektra Awards’ Power Systems Product of the Year,” said Curtis Davis, vice president of Cypress’s PowerPSoC Division. “Our design team faced formidable challenges to achieve the level of integration PowerPSoC delivers, and we are pleased to have customers and the electronics engineering community at large taking notice of this innovative product.”

About PowerPSoC
The PowerPSoC family integrates up to four independently operated 32V / 1A MOSFETs that offer the ability to drive high power LEDs up to 1A. The devices include up to four programmable hysteretic controllers to provide controlled current output and up to four low-side gate drivers with programmable drive strength to support voltages above 32V with external MOSFETs. Up to 2MHz switching frequency allows use of smaller, less expensive inductors.
The family offers floating load buck, floating load buck-boost, and boost converter topologies that enable flexibility for the different voltage requirements of various applications. An auxiliary power regulator allows a PowerPSoC chip to operate up to 32V from a single power supply. The devices also offer 16-bit dimming for lighting applications that require high-resolution dimming.

The companion software for PowerPSoC, the PSoC Designer™ development tool, enables designers to quickly and efficiently program the controllers for different lighting and power options. It also allows changes late in the design cycle without having to change the circuit board layout.
