Matt's Tips: The PSoC Creator Document Manager

As a PSoC user, one of the things I run into is being able to find the right piece of documentation for the specific task I am trying to accomplish.  Cypress has a ton of documentation, but sometimes I feel like I need to be a search expert to find it all.    To the rescue comes the document manager in PSoC Creator.  You call it from the Help menu in PSoC Creator. See the picture below:

 

 

You can also call it from the Windows start menu (it's called PSoC Document Manager). The Document Manager will launch in a separate window and allows you to search through a variety of resources including:

  • The standard PSoC Creator Help,
  • Component Datasheets,
  • Application Notes,
  • Reference Guides, and even
  • Device Datasheets.

If you are connected to the internet, documents from the Cypress website will be included automatically.  You can even set up Bookmarks for things you bring up frequently (for me it's the keyboard shortcut bindings, see my previous blog entry). Give the PSoC Creator Document Manager a try and hit me up in the comments with your thoughts.  Happy PSoC Creating.

Once I introduced PSOCs to one of my customers. After recommending all the advantages PSoCs had compared to what he used since he was not quite convinced yet. When I showed him the Document Manager he went mute immediately, then after some silent moments he uttered "Documentation with the push of a button... That will save us DAYS!".

Cypress has a huge amount of documentation, however once in a while there arises an inclination that you should be an inquiry master to think that it's all. To the protection comes the archive supervisor in PSoC Creator and this file manager helped me to organize everything when I buy thesis paper and had to adjust parts with practical tasks.
