CY3215A-DK In-Circuit Emulation Lite Development Kit

Last Updated: 
May 17, 2013


The PSoC Development Kit 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.

  • ICE-Cube In-Circuit Emulator
