I was browsing the Cypress store and noticed there are new devices available for purchase.
Sample prices are really low compared to other PSOC devices. Although, prices on farnell and mouser are sinificantly higher and digikey don't list PSOC4 devices yet.
Strange: the web page lists the CY8C4125AXI-483 as having 0 universal analog blocks. The data sheet says it has 2 OpAmps and a SAR. Who is right?
I was going to get the kit first too. But Farnell has decided they won't ship to home addresses in my country anymore but rather only to business
And since it's a farnell exclusive product, RS nor digikey nor mouser will have it stocked. I'll have to wait till it apears on ebay
What sometimes work is to send it to your work address, and then (after the package has cleared customs) tell the shipping company to deliver it to your home address. I did this with Fedex several times - but you need shipment tracking for that.
@dana: but it doesn't really answer "what is a universal analog block?". Like zeta I would trust the data sheet more, but who knows...
the PSoC 4100, PSoC 4200 series will have the CTBm (Continuous Time Block) that contains 2 Op-Amps. This block can be repurposed into several analog topologies.
the "Programmable Analog Block" is different, and under development, for future PSoC 4s (not on the 4100, 4200).
