CYPRESS CYFI™ LOW-POWER RF NOW AVAILABLE AT NEWARK
World's most reliable 2.4-GHz solution for embedded control applications featured in new starter kit
CHICAGO-NOVEMBER 13, 2008– Committed to bringing design engineers the newest technologies first, leading multi-channel electronics distributor Newark, part of the global Premier Farnell Group, announcesthat it is stocking Cypress’ new 2.4-GHz solution for the embedded market. Available now for same day shipping, the new CyFi™ Low-Power RF solution delivers the industry's leading combination of reliable connectivity, power-efficiency and superior range, and is supported by the flexible and easy-to-use PSoC® programmable system-on-chip.
CyFi™ Low-Power RF is ideal for a broad range of applications, including home and building automation, remote controls, health and fitness equipment, and industrial monitoring.
The CyFi™ solution consists of the CyFi protocol stack in PSoC Designer™ embedded design software, the selected PSoC device, and the CyFi transceiver. The solution's unrivaled interference immunity is a result of its Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) modulation and the agility to move to 80 channels in the 2.4-GHz band. It intelligently manages DSSS, data-rate and agility to minimize retransmissions, maximizing time in sleep mode for increased power efficiency.
Newark’s complete Cypress offering can be found at http://www.newark.com/cypress including the new PSoC FirstTouch™ Starter Kit with CyFi Low-Power RF (CY3271), which helps designers to easily and quickly evaluate the prototyping and debugging of wireless systems based on the CyFi solution.
Expansion packs for the CY3271 kit will also be stocked by Newark in early December, 2008, and are now available for pre-order. The CY3271-EXP1 Environmental Sensing Kit is the first of these expansion packs and includes two boards: the Weather Station Expansion Board (atmospheric pressure, humidity, temperature, and ambient light) and the Pigtail Thermistor Expansion Board—enabling wireless & sensing solution evaluations of both CyFi Low-Power RF and the PSoC programmable system-on-chip technologies.
"We’re pleased to partner with Cypress to bring their new low-power RF solution to market,” said Paul Buckley, Senior VP, Sales & Product Management. “Getting new technology into the hands of design engineers as quickly as possible is a top priority for us.”
