BAM! Just like that I came across Cypress PSoCs. I'm from software background so started trying to understand more about them and the more I learn about PSoCs the more I'm getting attracted to it.
What I've understand so far is that - there is a lot of flexibility and designing a product using PSoCs, their IDE and so on is both very easy and effective.
But one thing I would like to understand is, let's say:
I've bought CY8CKIT-030 PSoC® 3 Development Kit and CY8CKIT-025: PSoC Precision Analog Temperature Sensor Expansion Board.
I interface the two, I write an application which will run on the PSoC 3 8051 micro controller, read the temperature from the sensor using a PSoC ADC and finally display it on the LCD.
I'm satisfied and I've proved that my concept works. I'm done with the eval kits. I've successfully designed a micro-controller, on the basis of my needs.
I would like to now build a product out of it, say I wish to make 100000 temperature measurement/display devices.
What should I do? What are the next steps? Do I need to place an order to Cypress: I need 100000 processors with the following requirements and here are the design files for my micro-controller? What's the price for 100000 such processors?
From their website/videos all I see is them talking about kits, capsense and the ease of designing. I would like to know more on what's after the kits and the end of design phase.
