Back on my high horse
A couple of blog posts ago I was moaning about using hardware design tools for software development. I wrote an article to get it off my chest. It turns out this is not an effective therapy and I wrote another one!
In this Product How-To article Mark Saunders describes a new methodology for doing firmware development for the Cypress Arm-based Programmable SoCs, using the company s PSoC Creator in combination with Arm s uVision IDE.
This time, I am talking about the mechanics of using the µVision IDE to develop firmware for a design made in PSoC Creator. I'm just out to prove the point that you really can do it I suppose.
You can download PSoC Creator 2.0 from our website for free and you can get an evaluation of the µVision IDE from ARM so there go your excuses... go on, download a bit of software and see how easy it is to split hardware design from firmware development on configurable platforms like PSoC.
