Hello,

I am looking to make a tiny bot using CY8C4745LQI-S411. I was planning to directly connect it to a 3.7V battery and utilize the internal regulator of the chip. Just wanted to verify if I will require any voltage regulator or protection circuits.

Also, what is the difference between psoc programmer and psoc Creator? I have a Miniprog4 to program the chip, but should I use a psoc creator or programmer for the same?

Any type of help is appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

The MiniProg4 connects to the PSoC4S SWD interface using either 10-pin or 5-pin connector.

5 pin connector

10pin connector

The terminals used are the same for both 5 pin and 10 pin :

GND

SWDIO / SDAT

SWDCLK / SCLK

XRES

VTARG / VDD

The 5pin connector is easier to use because it can be used with a general pin header.

 

If the system you design is less than 200mA, it can be powered by the MiniProg4 VTARG.

If more current is required, the PSoC4S VDD should be supplied by the system.

The bypass capacitors required for PSoC4S must be implemented, but no bypass capacitors are required between PSoC4S and MiniProg4.

I think the circuit diagram of the demo kit will be helpful.

Hi,

 

The PSoC4S power supply voltage (VDD) supports 1.8V to 5.5V.

And VDD of PSoC4S has not protection function.

When using 3.7V battery for VDD, it is necessary not to exceed the absolute maximum rating of 6V.

// PSoC Creator is an integrated development environment(IDE).

Develop PSoC4700S hardware / software project using PSoC Creator.

 

// MiniProg4, MiniProg3 and KitProg are USB-SWD bridge.

When programming the developed HEX file to PSoC4700S

The MiniProg4 is the bridge between your computer (USB) and the PSoC4700S (SWD).

If it is a demo kit, KitProg is mounted on the board instead of MiniProg4.

 

// PSoC Programmer is primarily a HEX file writing tool.

It can be programmed from project in PSoC Creator, but you must use the PSoC Programmer to program from the HEX file only.

Thank you for the response!

While programming the chip with the miniprog4, are there any bypass capacitor circuits that I need to keep in mind? I am not using a kit, programming the chip directly using miniprog4.
