CY3215-DK In-Circuit Emulation Development Kit

Last Updated:

There's a newer version of this kit available called the CY3215A-DK In-Circuit Emulation Lite Development Kit. To know more please go here. Please go here to know the difference between the CY3215-DK and the CY3215A-DK kits.

The CY3215-DK is used for prototyping and developing applications with PSoC Designer IDE. This kit supports in-circuit emulation and the software interface allows access to the contents of specific memory locations.

The PSoC 1 Debugger includes an In-Circuit Emulator (ICE) which consists of a base unit, USB 2.0 cable, and power supply. The base unit is connected to the host PC via the USB port. The ICE is driven by the Debugger subsystem of PSoC Designer. This software interface allows the user to run, halt, and single step the processor. It also allows the user to set complex event points. Event points can start and stop the trace memory on the ICE, as well as break the program execution. In addition to the Development Kit, different Emulation Pods are available to support the range of devices in the PSoC family. They plug into (or are soldered onto) the user's circuit board to provide the physical interface. Pods are available for low-cost expansion of the ICE-Cube capability.

The ICE-Cube also serves as a single-site device programmer via an ISSP (In-System Serial Programming) Cable and MiniEval board included in the kit. The MiniEval board is a programming and evaluation board which connects to the ICE-Cube via an ISSP Cable and allows programming of DIP devices. There are also other Programming boards available for programming other packages. The MiniEval also includes LEDs and a POT for simple evaluation and demonstration.

PSoC 1 Debugger Includes:

  • PSoC Designer Software CD-ROM
  • ICE-Cube In-Circuit Emulator
  • ICE Flex-Pod for CY8C29xxx Family
  • Backward compatibility Cat-5 Adapter
  • ISSP Cable
  • Mini-Eval Programming Board in One
