OK, so how do we program the cy8ckit-049-42xx ?
Sorry, I thought this would be a touch easier... following one of 5 or 10 different "examples", I believe I have this PSoC always in the fast blink mode.
I opened the ADC with Differential Amplifier example and got it to Build / Generate Application after realizing what the example meant by pin assignments. ... now, what exactly are the next steps to load it to the target? I really don't "get" opening bootlable and programming it with that (which is why I think it always starts as though you were holding down the button).
Also, the instructions say to connect P0 to P12 on header J8. J8 is the USB connector with D+ D- +5 and 0.
... going to be taking a PSoC5 home tonight and hope it isn't as difficult to get started. Alan Hawse, I challenge you to hire an EE college grad (ok to have embedded experience with anything other than Cypress) and then watch her try to get this cy8ckit-049 to do anything without having a Cypress employee walk through the process. I'm over 8 hours into your company's products and ChipKIT, Ti, and NXP at least made something happen for me in the first day.
Grumble grumble, don't even get me started on how ardweeny can make a button and their board do something in about 10 minutes. You've got like another 8 hours before I dismiss Cypress and for small projects, stick with the arduino pro minis. They might be inferior but at least telling them to do things only requires a BSEE grad with 3.73 GPA. :P
Yaaay - as if stress from work isn't enough, the PSoC-049 is going to make me drink.
