Hi all,

  I am a beginner in Psoc  .we are undertaking a project in which we are interfacing the Psoc ,which is monitoring a battery sytem , with LAN . For monitoring the battery we have decided to use the Psoc based Manager which is with the attached pdf we have decided to use MOXA’s NE-4110S Ethernet Network Enabler Module with the Psoc for network interface. i want to know how to proceed with this with Psoc....

2) I heard Psoc creator is the tool for programming . so i want the Linux version(ubuntu 11.04) of Psoc creator

 can anyone help?

i don know this is the correct place  to post this?

if wrong correct me.

 

Thanks,

Kalli.s

Hello Kalli,

 

PSoC Creator is the tool if you are using PSoC3/5 but if you are using PSoC1 for your application then you need PSoC Designer. Along with these tools you need to install PSoC Programmer. PSoC Creator and PSoC Designer are development environment and PSoC Programmer is used for programming. You can download these tools from our website from this link: http://www.cypress.com/?rID=39531&source=header

 

All our development/programming tools are designed to work on Windows environment. They do not support Linux environment.

 

The pdf link which you had provided does not work. Please attach the PDF.

 

Are you trying to interface PSoC with LAN? If yes, then is there a separate LAN controller or you want to implement that using PSoC itself.

 

There are various application notes available on our website for battery level management, link for some of them are as follows:

Hi pushek,

             Thanks for your reply.

             Sorry for not attaching that pdf . Now i have attached two links of the  pdfs

1)We have decided to use MPPT algo based solar charge controller      http://www.cypress.com/?docID=21164

2) And yes   we  are interfacing with LAN for that we have decided to use this   http://www.sphinxcomputer.de/produktdb/documents/327_2365.pdf

we are trying to interface thePsoc in the Charge controller (1st link) with the network enabler for RS232 devices (2nd link) serially

Is the above idea possible

And also you said there is a LAN controller available could u pls provide the link for that ill also have a look at it.

 

Thanks

Kallis

Kallis,

Yes,this does look possible.

I was concerned that the MPPT design might not have any spare I/O, but in looking at the schematic at :

http://www.cypress.com/?docID=30839

It appears that P1[4] and P1[7] are not used,

which would leave you the two (2) pins required for UART RX/TX.

You would need to use software handshaking (XON/XOFF) unless two addtional pins

were available for RTS/CTS (I don't think they are unless you retask two pins...

You would need to add a UART component to the MPPT reference design,

and add the code necessary to communicate with the MOXA Ethernet adaptor.

Sounds like a fun project, good luck.
