SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cypress Semiconductor (NYSE: CY), theworld leader in timing technology solutions, today announced immediateavailability of production volumes of the CY22xxx family offield-programmable clock generators. Operating at speeds up to 200 MHz, thetiming devices provide highly stable, easily configurable clock outputs foruse in a wide range of commercial and consumer applications, includingswitches, routers, computers, DVD players, and digital cameras. "These devices allow designers to use a simple software utility to create acustomized clock solution, similar to the way they customize logic solutionsfor a CPLD," said Ian Chen, director of marketing for Cypress's TimingTechnology Division. "Instead of waiting months for a custom crystal or acustom PLL, designers can create a production-grade sample using an EPROMprogrammer in their labs in just thirty minutes or less. Furthermore, theycan optimize a programmable clock for each application, guaranteeing peakperformance. At any volume the programmable device is as cheap or cheaperthan a custom ASIC."Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
