Cypress's PowerPSoC Integrated Embedded Power Controllers Wins 2009 Elektra Award for Power Systems Product of the Year
Cypress Semiconductor has announced that Electronics Weekly magazine has selected Cypress’s PowerPSoC® family of integrated embedded power controllers as the winner of the 2009 Elektra Award for “Power Systems Product of the Year.” The family offers the industry’s first single-chip solution to control and drive high-power LEDs. The devices integrate four constant-current regulators and four 32V MOSFETs with Cypress’s PSoC programmable system-on-chip, which includes programmable analog and digital blocks, a microcontroller, and memory.
This unprecedented level of integration provides customers with a single-chip solution for high-quality LED-based lighting products and extends into other embedded applications such as white goods and industrial control. The result is end systems with fewer components, faster design cycles, lower power consumption and higher reliability. More information on the PowerPSoC family is available at www.cypress.com/go/pr/PowerPSoC.
An independent panel of judges selected the Elektra Award winners, which were announced in London on December 1. Now in its seventh year, the categories of the Elektra Awards have been enhanced to reflect the strength of innovation in semiconductor design and the growing importance of applications such as LED lighting and renewable energy technologies.
