Hello:

I am not getting any board response after a successful build of the Hello World PWM project from PSoC 6 101 Lesson 1-3.

(RE PSoC 6 BLE Pioneer Kit  CY8CKIT-062-BLE)

Should I see upload activity reflected on LED 1 and 3 ?  I do not see any during or after the build.

Hitting the program icon does bring me to an acquire port screen which seems to reflect the board, and does cause LED 3 to blink slowly (1 Hz) but this is not the programmed blink of the RED component of LED 5.

I also noted that the video used a 063 target, I stayed with the 062 target of my kit.  (I also tried 063 target with no success).

While I suspect a computer port issue, I am at a loss as to how to troubleshoot.  I have learned alot about PSoC Creator 4.2 in the week struggling with this, but am ready to move on.

Is there a troubleshooting resource for examining the success of the upload operation?

Thanks.

Hello,

Since PSoC 6 MCUs are dual core devices, you have to select one of the cores as the debug target before programming. Here are the steps you should follow after a successful build:

1. In PSoC Creator , choose Debug > Select Debug Target

2. In the "Select Debug Target" dialog box, select the CM4 target, then click OK/Connect

3. Choose Debug > Program to program the device with the project

4. You can view the programming status in the lower left corner of the PSoC Creator window

For more details, please see section 6.8 of  AN210781 - Getting Started with PSoC 6 MCU with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Connectivity

Hello,

Just to confirm, are you using a CY8CKIT-062-BLE  kit with CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 device or a different kit?

Thanks

Hi- thanks for the response.

I am using the CY8CKIT-062-BLE.

I am assuming that uses the CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 device, but do not know where to check on that.

Where do I look to confirm the device?

Is there a way of changing a device choice once the project has been created?

Is there a way of checking the device selection once the project has been created?

Note- from "last used" CY8C6347BZI-BLD53 is the device that the PSoC Creator 4.2 assumes when I start a project.

Additional information:

I eliminated my proposed "computer port issue" by obtaining and trying a PSoC 4 Pioneer kit and successfully programming and controlling the RGB LED, so I know the Creator is using the USB ports correctly.

I have also retried the Lesson 1-3 exercise with the following results:

  • No LED action
  • Successful build (report)
  • 1 Warning (see attached) Not sure if this is a clue

Thanks, Chris

Please attach the project archive.

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the note:

I have had great success with the PSoC 4 - 042 Pioneer Kit using the PSoC-Creator 4.2

I am very impressed and excited.

However I continue to have issues with the PSoC 6-062- BLE kit.  I get no on chip programming.

Using the PSoC 4 I get a chip programming report after the Build Step

--------------- Build Succeeded: 02/22/2018 11:52:02 ---------------

Programming device 'PSoC 4200 CY8C4245AX*-483' with file 'C:\Users\Chris\Documents\PSoC Creator\PSoC 4 101\Lesson 4 Hardware Pins.cydsn\CortexM0\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\Lesson 4 Hardware Pins.hex'.

Device 'PSoC 4200 CY8C4245AX*-483' was successfully programmed at 02/22/2018 11:52:04.

However with the PSoC 6 I get the successful build report bu no report on programming:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\PDL\3.0.1\tools\win\elf\cypdlelftool.exe" --complete "C:\Users\Chris\Documents\PSoC Creator\PSoC 6 Tutorials\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.cydsn\CortexM4\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\Lesson 3 Hello World LED_link.elf" "C:\Users\Chris\Documents\PSoC Creator\PSoC 6 Tutorials\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.cydsn\CortexM0p\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\Lesson 3 Hello World LED_link.elf" --output "C:\Users\Chris\Documents\PSoC Creator\PSoC 6 Tutorials\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.cydsn\CortexM4\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.elf" --hex "C:\Users\Chris\Documents\PSoC Creator\PSoC 6 Tutorials\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.cydsn\CortexM4\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\Lesson 3 Hello World LED.hex"

--------------- Build Succeeded: 02/22/2018 13:56:17 ---------------

The above come using the Build MENU.

If I use the Build Icon I get the following screen:

PSoC 6 Build.jpg

I have not been able to make this go any further.

You asked for the project archive to be attached. I have attached the build log.  I am not sure exactly what you want, but the attach function here did not allow me to attach the project file folder. 

Thanks,

Thank you Nidhin:

That was the step I was missing.  Everything worked very nicely.

Your help is much appreciated!
