We just discovered a problem in the SysPm driver that can cause the device to hang. It does not happen every time, only when the CM4 core is writing to flash and the CM0+ core wakes from deepsleep. The affected functions are as follows. Flash driver StartWrite() StartProgram() StartErase() SysClk driver...

In PDL Examples - SysPM Deepsleep Callbacks I wrote about using the PDL default callback function to make sure my UART could finish sending characters before the device went into deepsleep mode. In that blog I glossed over the conditions...

*/ We recently invited our HQ Family to bring their future Problem Solvers to our offices in San Jose, California, to celebrate Take Your Kids to Work Day! The day was full of creative activities, a scavenger hunt, volunteering and scoops and scoops of ice cream. The kids spent their morning watching, helping and learning more about their...

[re-printed from iotexpert.com] In the last article I wrote about using the PSoC 4 Watch Dog Counter as a deep sleep timer.  It seems kind of obvious that I should probably mostly do PSoC 6 articles.  So...

In my last post I covered input pins and compared the component and firmware-only approaches. Now I shall do the same with interrupts. If you remember, I have a very simple design with just a couple of pins - SW2 (input) and LED9 (output).  To start...

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...
