How to handle the xxx.cyacd programing based on previous hex file environment.

Kit: CY8CKIT-005 MiniProg4 Program and Debug Kit

Installed file: PSoCProgrammerSetup_3.29.1_b4659_0.exe

Auto programing EXE: ppcli.exe

Manual programing EXE: PSoCProgrammer.exe

IC Type:CY8C4245LQI-483

Connector: SWD Programming

FW Hex File:  Cypress_xxxxxx.hex

But there's a ECN now that the FW format has been changed from HEX to CYACD. So would you please give me some advice how to handle that, such as the kit, exe file, and so on, thanks.

Hi Alakananda,

For the ECN, its purpose is to inform us  that there's a change of the FW of the DUT during mass production in our factory. Unfortunately the format of the FW has been changed from HEX file to CYACD file. It seems the previous programming kit (CY8CKIT-005 MiniProg4)  we are using now is not matched. So, how can we do if we try to use  the new CYACD file for  this IC CY8C4245LQI-483. What kind of  programming kit is suitable? And how to use it like the CLI, thanks.

Best Regards

Hi @Michael_777 ,

CYACD file is mainly used for bootloading purpose, you can refer  to the below document for more information on cyacd file.

https://www.infineon.com/dgdl/Infineon-Component_Bootloader_and_Bootloadable_V1.20-Software%20Module...

The programming tools like cypress programmer or PSoC programmer does not support CYACD files.

Hi Alakananda,

Appreciate your great support. I'm afraid I still have some doubts after reading the document you provided. Can you please recommend us the appropriate Kit Model and the SW as well to make it suitable for FCT fixture internal, thanks.
