If you read my last post about Barc you will know that I was feeling pretty confident prior to the Embedded World show. All I needed to do was add some CapSense proximity loops (a.k.a. wires) to the...

It's time for the finishing touches on Barc's motor control circuit. It's high time I took notice of the motor driver FLT (fault) signal and I want to add the ability to walk backwards. I started by tidying up the wiring on the breadboard. Sree was giving me some mean looks about it. Here is the neater layout with the PSoC moved closer to the...

Last week I verified that my hardware was working. So it's time to connect the PSoC kit to the motors and breathe a little life into the old dog!  This requires a little re-wiring on the bread board. I started by connecting up the power and ground to both the motor driver and the PSoC kit, then the SLP (sleep) and FLT (fault) pins were wired to P2...

This is an update of a previous post I made regarding PSoC Real Time Operating System (RTOS) support. I also wanted to plug Alan Hawse’s great blog on hooking things up to the internet, iotexpert.com.  He recently did a great post on FreeRTOS on PSoC 4. Here’s a table with the...

This weekend I took the plunge and soldered some headers onto the motor board and the PSoC prototyping kit. I ended up choosing the CY8CKIT-059 for no other reason than I already had one (and had forgotten to order...

Barc, the robot dog, arrived the other day. Well Barc in pieces really. I got the car kit and the motor board and some assorted bits I do not yet know if I need. Things like a solderless breadboard and some breakable header pins (that's break-apart-able, not breakable by the way).  I already have some PSoC prototyping kits which will be great for...

I did a very silly thing last week. I committed to making a new demo for the Cypress Maker Lab at Embedded World (Nuremberg March 14-16). At these shows we do live demonstrations of how to build embedded applications like robotics and IOT. The live part is easy. We get good attendance at our shows and have some laughs with the crowds (and...
