Hi,

When creating a new project via Creator 4.2, in Select project type page, there are Target kit, Target module and Target device. What are the differences between them? Are they three different ways to describe one same PSoC module? When should I use Target kit, Target module and Target device?

Say we are using CY8C5467AXI-LP108, what should I choose in the page? 

Or it does not matter, as long as I Device Selector after project is created, right?

Regards,

Winston

  • Target Kit refers to a MCU demo/evaluation kit such as a CY8CKIT-050, or one of the USB Easy-PD (CCGx) kits, like this CY4531 CCG3 Kit.  This option will make sure the correct part is selected for the targeted kit.
  • Target Module refers to CYBLE bluetooth modules (afaik, that's all that shows up on my list.  I've never used this option).
  • Target Device refers to a specific PSoC (such as your CY8C5467AXI-LP108).  This is what you want to use if just creating a new blank project for a target part.

Yes, the device can be changed after the project has been created.

Hi @yaga_3967241 ,

The description provided by @KyTr_1955226 is accurate.
In the case of the Target Module option, this is for modular boards that can be fitted onto another carrier board, for example, the development kit CY8CKIT-042-BLE-A  consist of a PSoC 4 BLE/PRoC BLE I/O Headers slot allowing the easy fitting of another PSoC 4  or PRoC BLE module other than theone the Kit comes with by default (Kit comes with default module  CY8CKIT-143A PSoC 4-BLE 256KB) like CYBLE-222014-EVAL module.

The 'Target' options are helpful in the sense that, if you know the exact MPN of the device you are programming then you can select the same from the 'Target Device' option, which is true even if you are using a development kit.
In case you are using the development kit, but do not know the MPN of the device on the same, then you can use the 'Target Kit' option and provide the name of the kit and PSoC Creator will automatically select the MPN of the device associated with that kit.

Hope this helps.

Warm Regards
Alen
