I have been watching the PSOC for some time now and I have never had an application where it was remotely applicable. But now I think I may have a use for it. I am having trouble finding a good low power MCU that has the peripherals that I need. The PSOC, with its configurable hardware, can morph into whatever I need.
In the past when I have looked at the tools, I was not impressed. In the early days the configurations process was to tell the factory what you wanted and they would make it work. A few years later when I checked back with them again, they said they had tools to let you do your own design. The training consisted of teleconferences with the factory, but you were likely the only person in the session. I guess that was good, but it is still not even as easy as using a CPLD or the like.
Now they have a lot of new chips out and the last time a salesman talked to me about them I was assured that the software was ready for prime time. So I am going to give them a hard look. Anyone have experiences they can relate?
