KitProg USB Mass Storage Programmer Now Available
The KitProg Programmer and Debugger on your PSoC Pioneer Kits can now act as a USB Mass Storage Programmer!
This new version of KitProg (v2.12) is currently supported only on the CY8CKIT-044 PSoC 4 M-Series Pioneer Kit, and will soon be extended to support all existing and new PSoC Pioneer Kits and Prototyping Kits.
This new functionality of KitProg enables you to program the PSoC device on the kit by merely dragging-and-dropping a compiled HEX file onto the enumerated USB Mass Storage KitProg device on your computer. This works across all PC platforms, including Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.
KitProg version 2.12 or higher is required to enable the USB Mass Storage Programmer configuration. You can upgrade the KitProg version through PSoC Programmer. Visit www.cypress.com/psocprogrammer to download the latest version of the PSoC Programmer.
