planning to migrate to CY8C29466
I am planning to migrate to the CY8C29466 and would welcome suggestions and hints.
So far I've been working with the Invention Board and its CY8C27443. I have also used it to program the same chip on an external board via ISP. Software-wise I have worked with the included PSoC Designer version 4.0 build 865.
Since the Invention Board cannot program the CY8C29466 my plan is to buy the CY3210-MINIPROG1 evaluation.
My questions are:
- while the pinouts of the two chips seem to be identical, I was wondering what people's experiences are with drop-in replacement regarding existing designs
- software-wise, how problematic is the conversion of CY8C27xxx projects to CY8C29xxx
- as version 4.0 does not support CY8C29xxx and the latest 5.0RC doesn't include a free C compiler, are there any intermediate versions available that would support both?
- is the CY3210-MINIPROG1 sufficient?
- any additional hints?
