Hi,

I snapped off the kit programmer that came with the CY8CKIT-059 development board, and soldered on a female and a male connectors to the the snapped away programmer and development board.   They work fine when I plug them back together using the connectors.

Then, I have a custom made PCB that has a CY8C5468 chip on it, which it works with the MiniProg3, but not the kitprog.  Neither psoc programmer nor psoc creator can acquire device.

In psoc creator, it simply said:

                                                             "There was an error running port acquire: SWD request returned Failed status".

In Psoc programmer, it said more or less the same thing:

                                                              " | FAILED! SWD request returned Failed status

                                                                | Please, check the following items:

                                                                |  - the connection between the programmer and the PSoC;

                                                                |  - the correct programming protocol is selected;

                                                                |  - the correct connector option is selected."

I have checked/tried:

  • Direction of the connector, they are obviously correct the custom made board is powered off the kitprog
  • Update the kitprog firmware
  • Change the mode in kitprog(long pressing the button)
  • Apply external power when programming
  • Erase the firmware.  After erasing the firmware(using miniprog3) in the psoc creator, the chip shows up grayed out as "PSoC5"(without detailed part number), and it says: "This device was recognized, but PSoC Creator does not support using it as this time"
  • Power reset at different times

Has anyone seen this problem before? isn't the kitprog supposed to work with all 5lp chips?

Have you get the KitProg work on your board now?

If still not, you can refer to below community threads regarding to similar issue:

Based on your description, both KitProg snapped off from kit-059 and your custom board should be full-function for programming.

Can you please double-check the connection wire between KitProg and custom board? Maybe the failure is caused by too long connection wire or some bad connection conditions.

I just measured the resistance from the kigprog pins to psoc chip on the board, they are all 0.2 ohm(reset, swdclk, swdio).  My custom board has a male connector that is compatible with miniprog3.   I soldered a female connector on the kitprog.   They are directly plugged into each other.  The wiring distance is about 1 inch(definitely less than 2 inches) long if the wiring on PCB is included.
