News from Mouser Electronics, Inc.


Mansfield, Texas, USA – October 24, 2007 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., known for its rapid introduction of the newest products, today announced it is stocking PSoC® FirstTouch™ Starter Kits from Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY), a leading supplier of high-performance, mixed-signal, programmable solutions. The PSoC® FirstTouch™ Starter Kit is a USB thumbdrive™ form factor kit providing a quick, easy, and affordable way for embedded customers to evaluate the integration, flexibility, and real mixed-signal programmability of PSoC mixed-signal arrays. Working with Cypress’s PSoC Express™ visual embedded system design tool, and without writing or debugging a single line of C or Assembly code, the kit provides designers with CapSense touch, temperature, light, and CapSense proximity sensing right out of the box. The kit includes a main system board that interfaces with a computer over USB and a detachable multifunction expansion card. The expansion card includes inputs and outputs for the various applications supported by the kit. “One of Mouser’s core competencies is to rapidly stock and market new products for our design engineering customers,” said Mike Scott, Mouser’s Vice President of Active Products, “and stocking innovative new products and tools like Cypress Semiconductor’s new PSoC® FirstTouch™ Starter Kit offers our engineering customers early access to the newest products for their new product designs.” PSoC devices employ a highly configurable system-on-chip architecture for embedded control design, offering a flash-based equivalent of a field-programmable ASIC microcontroller. This provides both enhanced design revision capability and component count savings. These PSoC devices include up to 32 Kbytes of Flash memory, 2 Kbytes of SRAM, an 8x8 multiplier with 32-bit accumulator, power and sleep monitoring circuits, and hardware I2C communications. Mouser’s broad-based product line, unsurpassed customer service, and streamlined warehouse operations make the distributor the design engineer’s one-stop shop for all the board-level components and associated development tools necessary for total project design.
