I completely agree with you. Thermal management system design depends upon the system's need i.e. number of of fans needed, precision needed etc. If a system needs multiple fans then PSOC adds a lot of value. Also as you stated(and as I also mentioned in article), thermal management can be a subset of overall the functionality, which PSOC is performing. So, when it comes to system integration PSoC is always a value addition because CPU and most of the resources on the chip are available for other functionalities of the system.

Fan controller ICs are pretty inexpensive today. If you don't need to by a PSOC for other functions, this solution is overkill.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
