Hello,

Yesterday I bought a CY8CKit-007 and a MiniProg3 at Farnell. I am having trouble programming it.

Both connected with USB cable and SW1 set to "USB"

When I try to program (Ctrl-F5) using PSoc Creator 3.0 I get the following error :

---

Select Debug Target

* MiniProg3/1229DD000BF3

   >> (!) PSoc3

PSoc 3 : This Device was recognized, but PSoc Creator does not support using it at this time.

---

I now find out this demokit is not supported anymore, I don't need the practical examples but would like to modify this board for my own software.

Does someone know a solution to this ?

 

Versions :

- PSoc Creator 3.0

- MiniProg3 version 2.05 [3.08/2.07] (no need of Upgrade; firmware is up to date according to PSoc Programmer

- CY8CKIT-007 serial nr "121R-51100 - 0947DG00469"

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

Look at the part number for PSOC, may be an older ES part, and only supported in

earlier Creator, 2.0,2.1, 2.2. You can find out in their respective release notes

when your part was no longer supported.

 Thanks for the answer

Update :

Indeed this devkit contains CY8C3866AXI-040 ES2 which is not supported.

I solved this by not using this devkit anymore. Unfortunately I did allready do several hw modifications so I couldnt send it back to Farnell. I will now use a CY8CKIT-030A instead.

You might be able to get something for the kit on ebay if not too badly

hacked up. Just a thought. Alternatively yank the ES2 part off and replace.

I have seen some videos on youtube doing hi pitch smt with some fairly

simple methods, like flood a side with solder, and wick up excess/bridges

with solder wick.

 

Regards, Dana.

 Thanks, I will keep the board. Maybe I can use it in a later stage. I allready (destructively) removed the LCD to use these spots for my own hardware connection so selling wont be an option.

When installing an older version of Creator (pre 2.0) you may program and use the ES2 chip. On the Cypress website you'll find an archive of older Creator versions here: www.cypress.com/
