참고: The underlying technology of Cypress’s MFi solutions is compatible with both Apple’s 30-pin connector and their new all-digital Lightning connector for iPhone 5 and other new Apple products. Cypress is currently working to provide full support for the Lightning connector. Contact mfi@cypress.com to discuss your MFi needs.
PSoC programmable analog & digital resources integrate everything shown in light blue below. Click on the colored blocks to view or sample the recommended PSoC Components.

 

The flexibility of PSoC allows you to customize each colored block, or PSoC Component, to meet your design requirements through the easy-to-use PSoC Creator Software IDE.  These Components are available as pre-built, pre-characterized IP elements in PSoC Creator.

Design Considerations

Mobile devices such as portable media players, smartphones and tablets continue to have increasing computation power, more intuitive user interface and captivating displays, network and cloud access, and a multitude of software applications. Endless possibilities await the pairing of intelligent electronic accessories with such mobile devices running customized apps!

PSoC 3 & PSoC 5 gives you the freedom to not only imagine revolutionary new accessories for iPod, iPhone and iPad devices, but also the capability to get those accessory products to market faster than anyone else. Communication with iPod, iPhone and/or iPad (via a proprietary communications protocol as part of Apple's MFi licensing program) has been abstracted in PSoC 3 & PSoC 5, enabling MFi licensed developers to very quickly design unique mobile accessories, from traditional audio products to diagnostics, measurement and instrumentation tools, medical and health and wellness devices, and more!

PSoC 3 & PSoC 5 provides new features and capabilities while reducing the overall bill-of-materials. PSoC 3 & PSoC 5 enables three main functions in these accessories:

 1.  Abstracts the communication protocol with iPod, iPhone and iPad (and associated apps).
 2.  Digital Audio pipe, utilizing the integrated FS USB interface, and programmable digital logic to instantiate I2S and S/PDIF.
 3.  Housekeeping microcontroller for power management, user interface (CapSense and LCD control/drive), IR Rx., and other PSoC functions.

애플리케이션 설명

  • AN52927 demonstrates how easy it is to drive a segment LCD glass using the integrated LCD driver in PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP. This application note gives a brief introduction to segment LCD drive features and provides a step-by-step procedure to design Segment LCD applications using the PSoC Creator tool.

  • AN86233 discusses how to use the PSoC® 4 and PSoC Analog Coprocessor low-power modes and features to operate at very low power levels while retaining essential functionality. Major topics include the five power modes, PSoC Creator™ power management functions, and other power-saving techniques and considerations. Three PSoC Creator example projects are included to demonstrate different aspects of low-power programming.
