PSoC Creator 3.3 Service Pack 2

As you may already know, PSoC Creator 3.3 Service Pack 2 is available for download on the Cypress website (http://cypress.com/creator). The Update Manager will be popping up desktop notifications soon. The release adds support for PSoC 4 S-series devices, a brand new CapSense component, and new EZ-BLE Bluetooth modules.

EZBLE PRoC Module

The S-series devices are the first PSoC chips with the ARM® Cortex™-M0+ core and our fourth generation CapSense technology. The 4000S devices are sampling now with the intelligent analog 4100S chips following along soon. Watch this space for development kit announcements!

Supporting these devices is a completely re-designed CapSense component that makes widget configuration easier, adds mutual-capacitance sensing for the best possible water rejection and long trace noise tolerance, and an API re-design to improve low power operation. You can even use the CapSense block as a 10-bit Analog-Digital Converter (ADC)!

CapSense_P4 Customizer GUI

PRoC users will be happy to see some new EZ-BLE modules that we're adding to the tool. These modules include the amazing XT/XR (Extended Temperature/Extended Range) device that really pushes the limits with 400m range and extended temperature tolerance.

As usual, we’ve also made quality improvements and minor enhancements. I strongly encourage you to install PSoC Creator 3.3 SP2. You can find more information, including the complete Release Notes, on the PSoC Creator product page at http://cypress.com/creator.

The build, programming and debug commands worked for me the first time I ran PSoC Creator 3.3 SP2 but not anymore. The output window gives very little information when trying to build:

A "clean" followed with a "build" gives:

However, the status bar at the bottom says "Ready, 0 Errors, 0 Warnings"; my failed builds are silently ignored. So the new PSoC Creator SP2 is pretty useless for me. I'll try to downgrade, hope that works.

I downgraded. That seemed to work for a while, but later the problem with the silent build fails came back. So SP2 was probably not the problem. I fixed the problem by deleting files I've added to my .gitignore:

workspace/MyProj.cydsn/MyProj.cyprj.*
workspace/workspace.cywrk.*
workspace/Backup/
workspace/Archive
workspace/ComponentUpdateLog.txt
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/codegentemp/
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/MyProj.rpt
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/MyProj.cyfit
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/MyProj.cycdx
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/Generated_Source
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/Export
workspace/MyProj.cydsn/CortexM0

Hey Speedycat, 

This is really uncool!  Can you file a ticket on this at cypress.com/support?  I would be happy to do it for you, but I am out of the office until Tuesday.

It looks like the build is failing because it cannot delete one or more temporary files. These are created during the build process but are not required afterwards. The chances are that you have a viable hex file in the CortexM0\ARM_GCC_493\Debug folder. Unfortunately, I suspect PSoC Creator will not let you program it because it will always do a rebuild. You could program with PSoC Programmer but that is not a long term solution.Since the .gitignore list solves the issue I suspect your revision control was stopping the deletion of the files.

Mark.

Hi! Sorry for late reply. After downgrading to my previous version which failed to build too, I'm not sure if the actual PSoC Creator update caused the problem. It did not work after I deleted the PSoC Creator's AppData neither. When I deleted the files in my .gitignore, things was working again. So there were probably some temporary files confusing the build.

 

I don't think git stopped deletions since .gitignore tells what to not track :)
