Hello,

I'm using PSOC creator 4.2 and a prototyping kit "CY8CKIT-147".  I have two questions. 

First, when I drop in a SAR ADC, it has a "prototype" watermark appended to it.  Why is this?

Second, I cannot seem to add an analog 4x1 MUX to my design.  I could really use two of these but adding only one triggers a macrocell resource error. 

Here are the current resources in my design:

1 Soft Uart

1 SAR ADC

1 OpAmp

Do I need a larger device to accomplish this project?

Thanks,

Shawn

I solved the issues with adding the muxes.  I had previously copied muxes from one schematic that used a different device to my current schematic.  I now know not to do this again.

The ADC still displays as a prototype device though.

Hello Shawn,

What is the component version you are using ? Could you go to tools and press Find new component option and confirm components are up-to-date ?

I updated the Scanning ADC but it still has a “Prototype” watermark on it. The datasheet shows it with the “prototype” watermark too. I must have the most up to date version. I’d like to know what this watermark means.
