programming with miniprog3
I am trying to use the MiniProg3 to program my PSoC3, CY8C3245PVI-134. I have the programmer settings set to 5-pin SWD programming at 3.3V, Auto-Dectection on, and Power cycle mode with a clock speed of 1.6MHz. My programmer software is the most recent version. I have had nothing but problems.
First off, when told to program the chip, the Auto-detect doesn't work so I have to manually set the device chip. Even after this, it never powers up the device, fails, and most times disconnects from the computer, causing the programmer software to occasionally crash. I've even tried programming through the Creator IDE, same thing happens.
My next try was to attempt the Reset programming mode and having the device externally powered, I have a little more success with that. Occasionally the Auto-detect works, and it will erase the device and attempt to program the flash, but everytime it is followed by this Failure message:
FAILED! SWD respond packet contains Failed status!
Anyone have any idea what is going on? I've tried contacting Tech Support via both email and phone and they are just too slow to respond. I'm going to try to program with the JTAG next.
Ah, one more thing. I went back to a PSoC 1 device that I know can be programmed with a MiniProg1, when attempting to program it with the MiniProg3, which claims to be able to do so, I get the same disconnection or just failure to program problems, thinking it just might be a bad programmer I bought another one, but all my problems persist. Please help!
