Using a PSoC 4 Pioneer Board as a programmer for PSoC 5LP
I have a PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit (CY8CKIT-042) and I was wondering whether it is possible to use the onboard PSoC 5LP based programmer (KitProg) to program another PSoC 5LP chip on a third-party board given that I down’t own a MiniProg 3. The board I want to program, the Schmartboard PSoC 5LP Development Board (710-0008-05) comes with a bootloader to facilitate programming without an external device, but I want to use the USB Bulk Data Transfer Capability of PSoC 5LP and if I guess correctly that might not be possible if I use the bootloader method (which uses the USB for programming) and therefore require a SWD based programmer. I have seen that there is an article entitled ‘PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP Programming Using an External Microcontroller (AN73054)’ but I want to check if there is a easier way than trying to implement what is discussed in that. Is it simple as connecting the pins (SWDIO, SWDCLK and \XRES or P5LP2_0 to P5LP2_4) connected from the onboard PSoC 5LP to the external programmer header for the PSoC4 (J6) to the relevant pins in the MiniProg3 connector on the third-party board, ensuring that both boards share the same power supply (GND), and using the PSoC Programmer software?
