cypress semiconductor corp (CY) Key Developments

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. Adds New Package and Temperature Range Options to High-Density F-RAM Portfolio

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced the enhancement of its Ferroelectric Random Access Memory (F-RAM(TM)) portfolio with a 44-pin TSOPII package option for its 1 Mb parallel asynchronous interface F-RAM and an extended temperature range of -40°C to +105°C for its 2 Mb Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) F-RAM. The new package option enables pin-to-pin replacement for standard battery-backed SRAM solutions for mission-critical applications in industrial automation, computing, networking and automotive electronics. F-RAM's inherent nonvolatility provides instant data capture and retention for one hundred years with no batteries. Eliminating the need for a battery reduces system cost and complexity. The extended temperature range for the 2 Mb SPI F-RAM addresses the challenging operating conditions faced in many high-performance applications in harsh environments. The 1 Mb parallel asynchronous interface F-RAM device in a 44-pin TSOPII package and the extended temperature range of -40°C to +105°C for the 2 Mb SPI F-RAM device in an 8-pin TDFN package are both available now.

Huawei Selects Cypress Semiconductor Corporation's Truetouch Gen5 Touchscreen Controller for Sleek New MediaPad X1 Tablet

Huawei selected the TrueTouch(R) Gen5 capacitive touchscreen controller from Cypress Semiconductor Corp. for the MediaPad X1 tablet. The new tablet employs the Gen5 TMA568 controller's gloved finger tracking and hover support for its vibrant 7-inch touchscreen display. The feature enables users to operate the device even while wearing thick gloves, and it automatically switches between glove and finger tracking without requiring the user to change settings. The Gen5 solution's "hover" support enables smart touchscreen solutions that anticipate the touch of a finger and enlarge content to make it easier to find and select. Cypress collaborated with Huawei engineers on an easy-wake feature that enables users to perform a double-tap gesture to quickly activate the tablet from sleep mode. The MediaPad X1 is 7-inch tablet at just 7.18 mm, enabled in part by the TrueTouch Gen5 solution's leading immunity to electrical noise from displays. The MediaPad X1 offers a high-resolution 1,920 x 1,200 LTPS display that delivers an incredible visual experience, along with a flawless response to touch commands. Gen5 also enables leading water tolerance, which combines with its robust noise immunity to deliver accurate touch input and finger tracking in environments where competing solutions experience false and missed touches. Electronic noise from displays and after-market chargers can disrupt a touchscreen's ability to operate properly. The TrueTouch Gen5 family's ChargerArmor(TM) feature delivers unprecedented 40 volt peak-to-peak (Vpp) charger noise immunity measured from 1 to 500 kHz with an ultra-thin 0.5-mm cover lens and a finger-size up to 22 mm -- the most stringent specifications used to measure any touchscreen controller. No competing controllers deliver noise immunity over 15 Vpp under these conditions. With Cypress's unique and patented DualSense(TM) technology to execute both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance measurements in the same device, the Gen5 family offers the industry's best waterproofing for seamless performance in real-world conditions, including the presence of rain, condensation, or sweat. By combining this powerful architecture with an industry leading 32-bit ARM(R) Cortex(TM) M-Core processor that is known for high-efficiency MIPS/mW, Gen5 controllers boast 120-Hz refresh rates and low power consumption. Gen5 controllers drive the touchscreen at 10V and at high frequency with narrow-band, single-pass scanning and advanced hardware DSP filtering.

Cypress Semiconductor Seeks Acquisitions

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NasdaqGS:CY) will consider acquisitions. On being asked about appetite for making some acquisitions, Thad Trent Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Cypress Semiconductor said, "We are active looking. I think, right now, most companies are looking. The M&A market has been robust and hot. There is a lot going on. There is a lot of good assets out there. There is a lot of underperforming assets. If we can find an asset that we like, that we feel like compliments our product portfolio, we feel like we can bring it in house, we can take cost out, we feel like we can get synergies out of it. What we don't want to do is bring in an asset that doesn't complement what we have today. We don't need a distraction of a different product portfolio. So we are going to bring in things that support our current business."
