Hello all,

   

 

   

I am new to programming of the PSoC devices.

   

Which is the simplest way of programming a PSoC chip without having to use additional hardware like MiniProg3 ?

   

Thank You

The easiest way to program a PSoC device without the use of the minprog would be to bootload. Bootloading is possible via different communication protocol such as USB, I2C, SPI and UART. The Bootloader needs to be developed and if necessary a custom application can be created for this purpose.

U2 - don't forget that you still need to program the Bootloader with a MiniProg3 -

   

so it is not possible to start without one.

   

Other Cypress products, like FX2/FX3 USB controllers include a hardware Bootstrap in internal ROM Memory,

   

whereas the PSOC3 does not. So always need a miniprog3 to initially load the bootstrap...

Tom, I agree with you. You need a Miniprog3 to program the PSoC3 device once.
