Hello.

 

Q1)

If I use external power(AC adaptor) instead of USB bus power, do I need to change or modify any kits?

 

Kit guide has descriptions like below figure about “Connection details”.

Do I need to remove or add parts on the kit when using external power?

Q2)

Could you please let us know how to debug with Modus when using external power(AC adaptor)?

 

Need to use Miniprog4?

PSoC Creator could select MiniProg power settings like below figure.(Internal power or External power)

Is it possible to change MiniProg4 power settings in Modus?

Hi @YuMa_1534086,

1) No, removing or adding components is not required.

2) Yes, miniprog4 is required for debug operation. Refer to the following thread to know more on debug operation in MTB: https://community.infineon.com/t5/PSoC-6/miniprog4-cannot-find-cy8cproto-063-ble-or-my-proc6-board/m... 

 

Thanks and regards,
Nikhil

Nikhil-san.

 

If miniprog4 is default setting, it is okay to program or debug with miniprog4 by using connection of below figure, right?(Power source is AC adaptor)

 

Miniprog4 default setting in Modus does not supply power. Miniprog4 only monitors the applied voltage.

Miniprog4 default setting is same as “External” setting in PSoC Creator.

 

Is my above understanding correct?

Hello @YuMa_1534086,

Yes, it should be able to program and debug the kit with default settings in MTB.

However, if any of the settings need to be modified, follow the instructions given in the following thread: https://community.infineon.com/t5/PSoC-6/miniprog4-cannot-find-cy8cproto-063-ble-or-my-proc6-board/m...

The configurations, which need to be modified, have to be entered as commands in config options (Run tab -> Run Configurations -> Debugger tab -> Config options).

 

Regards,
Nikhil
