Infineon Technologies AG has enhanced its PSoC 6 family of microcontrollers (MCUs) with the Embedded Wizard’s graphics library and studio tool. The Embedded Wizard’s Graphics Engine is ModusToolbox-compatible and runs on the CY8CKIT-062S2-43012 development kit with a complete user guide and support for Embedded Wizard Studio. PSoC 6 designers can improve the end-user experience with graphic interfaces (GUIs) that can be easily deployed to their hardware with a smaller memory footprint for use cases such as voice and graphics targeting wearables, white appliances and more.
“Designers now have a larger set of software tools to support high-performance graphics for their PSoC 6 MCU applications with Embedded Wizard,” said Danny Watson, Principal Software Product Marketing Manager at Infineon. “Our PSoC 6 family delivers easy-to-use, low-power IoT applications with a unique consumer experience for battery-powered applications. We are thrilled to offer the complete Embedded Wizard tool suite with our PSoC 6 family.”
Embedded Wizard is a TARA Systems’ embedded GUI technology that enables designers to create platform-independent, high-performance GUIs on resource-constrained MCUs. With Embedded Wizard, designers can now use their tools to generate new graphic interfaces and deploy them to their PSoC 6 MCUs. Additionally, designers can still run existing graphical demonstrations on their PSoC hardware.
The PSoC 6 architecture is built on an ultra-low-power 40-nm process technology, and the MCUs leverage low-power design techniques to extend battery life up to a full week for secured wearables. A choice of dual-core Arm Cortex-M4 or Cortex-M0+ architecture lets designers optimize for power and performance simultaneously. Designers can use the MCU’s software-defined peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays. The PSoC 6 MCU also features the latest generation of Infineon’s industry-leading CAPSENSE capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable.
