PSoC™ 6 Forum Discussions
Hello Dear friends, Good morning!
I am doing a project that involves robotics with omni directional wheels, we will participate in competitions of the RoboCup League community, and my project consists of the construction of the Robots football players of the Small Size League category. I would like to know what advantages PSoc 6 offers in a project like this. Remembering that we will program autonomous robots and that uses image processing to interact with others. Very grateful everyone's attention!

Here's an update on what to expect with PSoC Creator 4.1, planned to be released in the coming weeks!
Web-Based Content Delivery
With this release, you can now obtain updates to devices (including modules), Components, and code examples from the Cypress web page. This will reduce the overall size of PSoC Creator in the future, providing faster installs and updates. The other key benefit of web-based content delivery is that devices, Components, and code examples can be distributed as soon as they are ready, instead of waiting for the next PSoC Creator update.
Pre- and Post-Build User Commands
The Build Settings dialog was also updated to provide a User Commands page. This feature allows you to run custom, user-specified, pre-build commands before the compile steps, as well as run custom user-specified, post-build commands after PSoC Creator’s post-build step.
Component Customizer Dialog Updates
Cypress has made several small enhancements to the default Configure dialog to improve the user experience with Components. With FM0+ devices moving from instance-based to driver based Components, it is beneficial to present the actual struct members as they are in firmware. These enhancements enable new features in the default GUI that mean more Components can take advantage of the default interface.
New Start Page
This is an update to the existing Start Page to enable better, more focused content delivery to users. The static content in the Start Page (left panel) is being refreshed and the live content area (right panel) is being used to show web-based information for “Getting Acquainted” and “New in 4.1”.
PSoC Creator 4.1 and PSoC 6
PSoC Creator 4.1 will be a minimum prerequisite and is recommended for all to install in preparation for a PSoC 6 software toolset release that is coming soon.
Feel free to leave comments or questions, we appreciate the feedback!Show Less
Just in case someone stumbles on this thread I thought I'd update.
The AN is available and has been for a while, here. In fact been revised once or twice based on customer feedback. A similar app note on how to use ModusToolbox Software and its generated code in an IDE should be published real soon now.
Thanks again for all the input. It helped make a better app note and is appreciated.
As you may have figured out from my posts, my focus here at Cypress for PSoC 6 is on software tools and enablement. To that end, I am writing an app note that explains how to use PSoC Creator generated code in a 3rd party IDE. It will cover PSoC 6 and PDL 3.0 only.
Here's a chance to help make it better. I'd be interested in hearing from the community on what your real-world experience has been like for other PSoC devices. For example, what IDEs have you done this with? What was easy and good? What was troublesome? Did you have a moment where you said "If I had known X, this would have been much easier." If you did, what was X?
I think you get the idea. What was it really like, in the real world, on real code. Your input will help me produce a more useful app note for you.
Here's a very rough outline, top level only.
- Basic overview of PSoC Creator (very short, documented elsewhere)
- Basic overview of the PDL (very short, documented elsewhere)
- Integrating Generated Code (high level, how this works, what choices you have)
- Exporting and Importing Generated Code for a Supported IDE
- Manually Importing Generated Code for any IDE
- Manually Importing Generated Code - an Example (walk through, with screenshots)
- Other Choices for Using Generated Code
Is there anything else you think should be covered?
Thanks in advance. I'll keep my eye on this thread.Show Less
How many versions are planned for Psoc6? Is there any information available to know the characteristics of these versions?
As I have read, there are plans to have an internal ADC with better characteristics. It would be desirable to have one of the best components of Psoclp5 family: Sigma-Delta 20 bit capable ADC.
Thanks in advance.Show Less
Are yo going to give free samples of PSoC 6 BLE by local Representatives or Distributors?
And how much will the PSoC 6 BLE pionner kit cost?
Hello Cypress PSoC 6 community,
Does any one know when the PSoC 6 BLE Wearables Board Kit will be available for purchase?
I have a customer in Israel who wants to start a design using PSOC Creator 4.1 and is targeting a PSOC4A-BLE version 4.2 device. He wants to migrate the design to PSOC6A-BLE and he wants to know how easily it is to migrate from is PSOC4A-BLE to PSOC6A- BLE? The desire of the customer would be to have low impact on firmware change and API command change. I need to know how compatible API commands are between the current BLE stack version 4.2 and the new version 5.0 stack? This is also bearing in mind that the RF hardware is different between the two PSoC families. I am not easily able to articulate my answer as I know know what efforts have been made to enable easy migration between the two.Show Less
Hello, is it possible to use the 2,4 GHz RF HW for a normal WiFi connection? If yes which standarts can be fulfilled IEEE 802.1 a/b/g/n?Show Less
In the past I had used the PSOC4 on a project. doses this chip will have a same price level of PSOC4 more o less ? Where I can find the price on volume?Show Less
hello, do we know if psoc 6 will be compatible with mbed os?
