I am looking to use a Cy8Ckit-059 and PSOC creator to make a variable square wave generator using a potentiometer to change the frequency, and a 4 digit, 7 segment LED to show the change in frequency. I want to program the chip, and power the entire thing with a 9V battery, and have it be mobile and not connected to a computer.
frequency: 10-100 Hz
4 digit-7 segment cathode -LED display
potentiometer to set the frequency
a stop/pause button..
and I would preferably like to use mostly logic gates, I already have an idea of what it is going to look like, I just don't have a lot of experience using PSOC creator. Thank you.
1. You do not need to open .lib file in explorer; instead open one of the examples provided with the component. If you unzip both DDS24_lib.zip and DDS24_demos.zip in the same root folder, then all demos should recognize DDS24_lib dependency automatically, because it relies on a relative path.
To add the DDS24 library file to the dependecies list (in any other project), please follow this video for (3-mouse click) instructions:
2. Upgrade your Creator (3.1) to the latest version (4.0?)
3. It seems that you are using KIT-059, and that it asking for firmware upgrade (seems all -059 are shipped with old firmware, which need upgrade before used). If this is the case make a firmware update: Programmer->Utilities Button "Upgrade Firmware".
