PSoC® 6 MCU: Purpose-Built for the IoT

Cypress’s PSoC 6 MCU is purpose-built for the Internet of Things (IoT)

Image of Cypress' PSoC® 6 MCU Cypress' PSoC 6 MCU architecture is purpose-built for the IoT, filling the gap between expensive, power-hungry applications processors and low-performance MCUs. The ultra-low power PSoC 6 MCU architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices. Security is built-in, enabling a single-chip solution. PSoC 6 enables engineers to uniquely create innovative, next-generation IoT devices leveraging the unique PSoC fabric with its easy-to-use, software-defined peripherals.

Lowest power: IoT devices are often portable, making battery life a critical factor

  • The PSoC 6 MCU architecture is built on a cutting-edge, ultra-low-power, 40 nm process technology with a dual Arm® Cortex®-M core architecture
  • Active power consumption as low as 22 μA/MHz for the M4 core, and 15 μA/MHz for the M0+ core

Most flexibility: The rapid growth of the IoT is sparking a need for innovation in IoT products

  • PSoC 6 offers superior flexibility with multiple wired and wireless connectivity options
  • Offers software-defined peripherals to create custom analog and digital circuits and one of the industry's best capacitive-sensing solutions, CapSense®

Built-in security: Security must be established between IoT devices, cloud applications, and servers

  • PSoC 6 supports an integrated, hardware-based trusted execution environment (TEE) with secure data storage
  • Incorporates a hardware-based root-of-trust and hardware-accelerated cryptograph
