Design sync with PCB tools? (Eagle)
So I am attempting to roll my first design using a PSOC chip to replace an old dsPIC chip.
The PSOC appears to be a good option for my application (academic, size constrained robotics) because rather than doing a bunch of complicated dense board routing, I can merely route to maximally convenient IO pins, then do the output assignment in the Creator project.
My question is: is there any tool to keep this all in sync? I'm using Eagle PCB, of course. So there's a correspondance that needs to be kept between the MCU part description, the wiring in the schematic, and then the actual board layout traces. Eagle does a fair job of the latter part of that.
But as for interaction between the Creator schemantic and the actual board schematic, there's a disconnect. I've just been doing the process manually, so far. And it looks like the cydwr file is a binary file, so I can't write a utility that auto-regens the Eagle part as part of the build process.
Does anyone know of any solutions to this? Hopefully something built into PSOC Creator that I have just overlooked? That would be great :)
Or, failing that, a plaintext location that reports the chip setup equivalent to the pin config in the cydwr file?
