cy8ckit-043 removable programmer
When I purchased my CY8CKIT-043, one of the attractive aspects of it was the ability to 'snap off' the programmer and to have it remote from the target board. Since I want to install the target board on a breadboard, I'd like a few inches of wire between the two boards.
Reading the directions, it seemed to be reasonable, so I went ahead and split the two boards, and installed header pins on each, with about 4" of cable between them.
Unfortunately, when I went back to the project I had begun I discovered that the RS-232 had now stopped working. It just seems to be running as an open line (with just hash on it).
I went back and put very short jumpers between the pins and it has the same problem.
Has anyone had success with separating these modules?
Does splitting the boards void the warrantee?
