Today I shall give you some pointers for using GPIO as inputs. As with outputs you can configure them with the schematic file or by writing firmware. Here is an instance of the GPIO_PDL component in a schematic. I configured the component to be called "SW2" because I am going to map it to the pin that connects to that switch on the Pioneer kit....

Let's see how many ways we can wiggle a pin! OK, there are too many, so let's limit the discussion to firmware-driven pins and just mess about with some more PDL functions instead! I'll point out a few tips and tricks along the way. I'll start with the humble output pin and I'll wiggle pin 7 on port 13 because it is connected to LED9 (the red one...

It's time to add an interrupt to our PWM and show you a few more API functions. As with last week's example, it is basically the same process with PDL as it is is with the instance-based functions. First of all, in...

Last week I showed an example of using the PDL UART driver in a PSoC 6 application. Today I am going to show you a PWM and do more compare-and-contrast with the PDL-based code versus the generated API you...

Hey folks, Several PSoC Creator 4.2 users have reported having issues with projects refusing to compile after updating to the production release of PSoC Creator 4.2 from the beta version.  We made a mistake in the Cypress Update Manager such that the required, updated version of PDL was not included. Here are two workarounds: 1. Go to the ...

So, finally, Barc is ready to go back to Germany. Last time I had the main program working well and I just had to tune the CapSense proximity sensors. Now I do not have to thread a USB cable through Barc's mouth the tuning process was pretty simple. I just right-clicked on the CapSense component to launch the tuner, then ran the noise tests, and...
