“New Project” wizard in PSoC Creator 3.3 == Awesome Sauce.

Hello Creator Gurus and Noobs and everyone in between.  I wanted to highlight some cool functionality in PSoC Creator 3.3.  There is a revamped and totally cool new project wizard in PSoC Creator 3.3.  I’ll go over a few of the features.  First, here’s what the opening screen looks like (from File->New->Project).

Notice you can select one of four things.  I’m only going to talk about the first two, Target hardware and Target device.  By default, Target hardware is selected.  And, since I have run this before the last thing I have chosen, the CY8CKIT-059 (an awesome kit) is selected.  If you have installed any other Cypress PSoC kits, they will be available in the dropdown.  Also available are BLE modules.  See below.

Choosing “Target device” will get you a list of different PSoC architectures in the dropdown like this.

For this example, I’ll choose the PSoC 4200 BLE and click “Next”.  I get a dialog box that looks like this.

Note that I can choose an existing code example or a pre-populated schematic.  I can also just start with a blank canvas (Empty schematic).  “Code example” is pretty self-explanatory, but how about Pre-populated schematic?  Let’s take that path and click “Next”.  The following dialog box will look something like this.

 

 

After clicking “Finish”, I’ll have a schematic that already has a UART, I2C, and a BLE component instantiated.  See the next screenshot.

 

 

Using "Pre-populated schematic" saves me the time of instantiating those components (and that text box, which I will use for documenting this schematic page).

I hope this gives you a flair for what you can do with the new project wizard in PSoC Creator 3.3.  Try it out using one of our code examples. For more information see “Creating a New Project” in the PSoC Creator Help.

Best regards to my brothers and sisters in PSoC.
