Hello Creatorites, In this post, I wanted to discuss the “Archive Workspace/Project” utility in PSoC Creator.  There are several options available with this command so I thought a little extra discussion might be helpful.  You might want to use Archive for a number of reasons, including: You would like to send someone a copy of your design. You...

I get a few common questions about downloading Cypress tools and about the Cypress Update Manager. I will address them briefly here. First, let’s talk about downloading a tool like PSoC Creator.  While some customers are concerned with the download size, the most frequent question I receive goes something like, “Why do I have to use the Akamai...

Have you ever found that you cannot set up your ADC the way you need it because it shares pins with another important peripheral? Have you even been forced to compromise the elegance of your solution just to make it “fit” into the device?...

I’m missing my progress bar today. I really didn’t see this coming! It is not all bad. On the plus-side I am now free to attend meetings in person without carrying around my computer, to wander the hallways with wild abandon, and to loiter in the restroom for as long as I like.
