Hi All 

   

Please help me in doing a Data Acquisition system control board with PSoC, I am a new developer .

   

Please mention the steps through which I should start doing this.

   

 

   

Thank you all 

   

Have a wonderful day !!!

Welcome in the forum-

   

The steps are quite easy:

   

Order a CY8CKIT-059 Prototyping Kit from Cypress or from your local distri.

   

While waiting for the kit to arrive download and install PSoC Creator

   

Watch some of the videos to get a feeling for how PSoC design works

   

Create a Project and put in it the required components as

   
        
  • AD converters
  •     
  • Analog multiplexors
  •     
  • Communication interfaces
  •     
  • IO pins
  •    
   

Connect all these with wires just as a usual CAD software

   

Write some C-language code to access the components and send acquired data over the interface

   

Start debugging your project

   

Lean back and smile 😉

Hi 

   

Thanks alot Bob 🙂
 

   

I installed PSoC Creator and designed the project.but my query is how can I upgrade a board which is working with  microcontroller  to a board with PSoC .Please guide me .How can I achieve it

Hi Bob 

   

Hello!!

   

My requirement is to build a board for communication from the Data acquisition board .

   

I have done a schematic but I tried to replace the microcontroller with PSoC 3,can you help me in completing the schematic!! Its a eagle file.  I can't attach it . 

   

so what should I do to complete the design 

   

Regards

When you are talking about a pcb there will be no chance to drop in a PSoC into the current design.

   

When you are talking about to replace an existing design with a more modern one, then you are done to 90% (providing test phase completed)

   

What remains is making a new pcb.

Fastest will be PSoC5. Use the above mentioned Prototyping kit.

Sorry, but I do not answer per mail.

   

Did you already watch the videos showing how to design with PSoCs?

I would suggest to start building up one channel. What is the interface? analog? Precision needed?? Voltage range??? Needed frequenxcy resolution??What are you going to do with the resulting value?

Hi Bob 

   

Good Morning 

   

Yea I started with one channel. Analog interface is what I required. This is data acquisition from a mass spectrometer

Hi Bob 

   

In my project what I am doing is after retrieving data the data is provided to PSoC  and PSoC will be providing the data to DAC for analog output, what is the suggestion for that ?

Using the DAC will do what you need to.
