PSoC 4

Anonymous

If I were to build my own circuit board and would like to incorporate a cyc8c, like the one on the PSoC 4, what components and design circuitry would I need?  What software would I use to program it.  

   

Thanks

Hi Cegrey,

   

What do you mean by design circuitry? If you are new using PSoC4 I would recommend you to buy an inexpensive Prototyping Kit like this one: http://www.cypress.com/documentation/development-kitsboards/psoc-4-cy8ckit-049-4xxx-prototyping-kits
Or a Development board with more hardware on it: http://www.cypress.com/documentation/development-kitsboards/cy8ckit-042-psoc-4-pioneer-kit

   

With these you can start working on your design without designing a board in the first place. Plus all the schematics are available, giving you examples of what's needed to use a PSoC4.

   

To program it you would use PSoC Creator available on Cypress website in the download section: http://www.cypress.com/products/psoc-creator-integrated-design-environment-ide

Oh... Do mot buy an CY8C-049 prototyping kit, as a beginner you will really need debug capabilities which this board does not have.

   

I would recommend the slightly more expensive CY8CKIT-043

I have the PSoC4, cyc8-042 kit.  What I was wondering, when I graduate and get ready to move on, and design my own circuit and I would like to incoporate a PSoC in my design, how do I field program it?  How would I make updates or revisions? What other hardware do I need to look at?

The CY8CKIT-043 has got a snap-off programmer that you may use to program your devices using a 5 pin interface. Additionally there is the Miniprog3  that could be used as a more professional programmer.
