Programming Failure using ICE Cube

Last Updated: June 10, 2011

I am trying to program my enCoRe II device in system through a USB cable. I am using the ICE Cube, yellow ISSP cable and 5-pin to USB adapter. I get an error message on my PSoC Programmer user window that says, Programming succeeded, verify failed; sometimes it fails to Acquire device. How can I resolve this?


The ICE Cube cannot be used to program devices in-system through the USB cable. This is due to the fact that the long connected cables in this mode cause signal degradation. In such cases, a MiniProgrammer (programs at a higher voltage) can be used with a 5pin to USB adapter to effectively program USB controller chips through USB cables. The MiniProgrammer can be ordered at Cypress online store or through our distributors.
