Hello 

For the 5-Pin Connector of CY8CKIT-005 MiniProg4 Program and Debug Kit Guide 3.2.1,  it is described that "When connecting the MiniProg4 directly, the width and height of the 5-pin header area is 25mm x 13mm".

Q1)  Is there any other way than connecting  miniprog4  to header directly? (for example, using a cable etc.)

Q2)  If there is only a direct connection, does the width and height of the 5-pin header area always need to be 25mm x 13mm?

Or is there a drawing that shows the external dimensions of the MiniProg4?

 

Best Regards

Arai

Hi Arai-san,

 

The physical dimension of Miniprog 4 connector is 25mm x 13mm as mentioned in the user guide.

Therefore minimum clearance of this dimension is necessary to directly attach Miniprog to the board. 
If this space is not available you can connect a Stackable header as suggested in the user guide.

You can connect it using 5 pin cable but the connection might not be stable due to low mechanical support.

 

Best regards,
Pranava
