Cypress's PRoC™-UI Solution Wins 2012 Product of the Year Award From Electronic Products Magazine
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (News - Alert) (NASDAQ: CY) today announced that Electronic
Products magazine has named the PRoC™-UI
(Programmable Radio-on-a-Chip-User Interface) a 2012 Product of the
Year. The PRoC-UI solution combines a 2.4-GHz proprietary
WirelessUSB™-NL Radio with Cypress's CapSense® and TrueTouch®
capacitive touch technologies. This combination enables user interface
functionality in wireless devices, including gestures supported by
Windows 8 applications. Cypress also announced that three variations of
the PRoC-UI family are now in production.
The Electronics Products editors considered nearly 300 product
entries using a set of criteria that included whether a product
presented a significant advancement in technology, featured
ground-breaking innovation, and offered a substantial price/performance
benefit. PRoC-UI excelled in all of these areas.
"We are very pleased to accept this award from the highly respected
editors of Electronic Products," said Jayant Somani, senior
director of worldwide marketing for Cypress's Data Communication. "It's
a tremendous endorsement of the outstanding technology we have at
Cypress. Perhaps more importantly, this awardis a validation of our
ability to create solutions that help our customers get to market
faster, with better and more cost-effective end products."
Cypress integrated its market-leading user interface and wireless
technologies to create PRoC-UI. The solution delivers cost savings
through integration, shorter design times, lower power, and smaller form
factor. PRoC-UI boasts an impressive -87 dBm (News - Alert) receive sensitivity at 1
Mbps. This enhanced sensitivity enables longer range (up to 30 meters)
operation and allows for lower-power transmit signals. The device
features low active and standby currents, which enable longer battery
life. It also offers superior performance in the presence of 2.4-GHz
interference from common sources such as WiFi (News - Alert), Bluetooth, cordless
phones, and microwaves.
PRoC-UI is available in three variations:
PRoC-TT (CYRF89535) offers TrueTouch touchscreen technology and
CapSense touch sensing with 32 KByte Flash and 35 IOs in a 68-pin QFN
package, targeting wireless trackpads, touch mice, and keyboard with
PRoC-CS (CYRF89435) offers CapSense touch sensing with 32 KByte Flash
and 35 IOs in a 68-pin QFN package, or with 13 IOs in a 40-pin QFN
package, targeting wireless mice with capacitive sliders and keyboards
with capacitive touch buttons.
PRoC-USB (CYRF89235) includes Cypress's enCoRe V USB microcontroller
with 32 KByte Flash and 13 IOs in a 40-pin QFN package, targeting
wireless USB dongles.
Cypress delivers high-performance, mixed-signal, programmable solutions
that provide customers with rapid time-to-market and exceptional system
