PSoC® Video Tutorial Series: How to Create Custom Components

  • PSoC® Video Tutorial Series: How to Create Custom Components

Watch our custom component creation video series. This series of video tutorials demonstrates how to create your own components using PSoC Creator. The videos start by explaining how to create a symbol for a new component. Next, implementation using both schematics and Verilog are shown. Then, adding API files and other miscellaneous files is demonstrated. Finally, the videos explain how to create a library of components and how to use them in your own PSoC projects.

This lesson shows you how to implement the function for a component using Verilog. The Verilog template is automatically generated from the symbol. The lesson also shows how parameters can be passed down to the Verilog from the symbol.

This lesson demonstrates how to create a library project which can contain a set of custom components which can then be used across any design that requires their functionality.

This lesson shows how a library project can be included into a new design project in PSoC Creator. Libraries can either be added to a single project, or a default dependency can be added so that the library will automatically be added to all new projects.
