Inductive-Sensing Evaluation Kit Enables Design/Debug Of MCUs

Cypress Semiconductor announces production availability of the PSoC 4700S series of microcontrollers (MCUs) that use MagSense inductive sensing technology for contactless metal sensing. The series also incorporates the company’s CapSense capacitive-sensing technology. The PSoC 4700S MCUs integrate:

  • a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M0+ core
  • up to 32KB Flash and 4KB SRAM
  • 36 GPIOs
  • 7 programmable analog blocks
  • 7 programmable digital blocks
  • support for up to 16 sensors, enabling implementation of buttons, linear and rotary encoders, and proximity sensing.  

Supporting the MCUs, the CY8CKIT-148 PSoC 4700S Inductive Sensing Evaluation Kit debuts as a low-cost hardware platform that enables design and debug of the MCUs. The kit includes MagSense inductive-sensing buttons and a proximity sensor, as well as an FPC connector to evaluate various coils, such as a rotary encoder. The PSoC 4700S series is supported in Cypress’ PSoC Creator Integrated Design Environment (IDE), which allows users to drag and drop production-ready hardware blocks, including the MagSense inductive sensing capability, into a design and configure them easily via a simple graphical user interface.
