CY7C09449PV-AC Software Development Kit (SDK)

Included in this kit are Windows drivers, demonstration applications, and documentation of the software provided. The applications themselves serve as documentation on how to interface with the drivers, and also may be used to test the Peripheral Component Interface-Dual Port (PCI-DP®) on the user's target board.

The supplied Windows drivers are not production quality and not tested except to function with the provided PC demonstration programs, TEST0449, and Perf42.

Installation Instructions

This version of the CY7C09449PV SDK is for Windows 95/98/2000/NT users.

  1. Download the file CY7C09449PV_SDK.zip [13.3 MB].
  2. Locate the file on your PC and extract the file to a folder on your desktop.
  3. Make sure to read the readme.txt file before using the software.

If you are installing a board in Windows 95/98 or Windows 2000, install the board and start your system. The Windows wizard will prompt you for an installation disk. Reference the folder where you saved the SDK and it will automatically install the kernel driver. To install in the Windows 95/98 or Windows 2000 development environment, run the Install.exe application located in the root directory of the folder and follow the directions. If you are installing a board in Windows NT, install the board and start your system. To install the kernel driver and/or the Windows NT development environment, run the Install.exe application located in the root directory of the folder and follow the directions.

Using the Software After Setup is Complete

Once setup is complete, you can run the Test0449.exe file from the directory where you installed the development environment. Test0449 is a baseline application intended to illustrate the use of the Cypress-provided drivers. It exercises the PCI-DP by using each of the functions in the (minimal) driver library. It functions properly with a PCI-DP connected to the PCI bus and does not require a target CPU on the PCI add-in card itself. This is the first application the user should run to test the operation of the PCI-DP and to make sure the software and hardware are installed properly. The Test0449 application tests all the major functions of the CY7C09449PV-AC and is a very good example of how to get started using the chip. It shows how to use the library to interface to the hardware driver.

Run Perf42 by selecting perf42.exe from the directory where you installed the development environment. Perf42 is an application that continuously tests direct memory access (DMA) performance on the PCI add-in card. Its operation is described in the documentation. It is a good demonstration application to show the PCI-DP in continuous operation and it features an animated front-end application. Various parameters of the DMA transfers may be adjusted through a graphical user interface.
