Mbed OS 5.13.1 released

Arm announced a patch release of Mbed OS yesterday. It is version 5.13.1 and it adds a few interesting items for PSoC users. The big change is a new Wi-Fi Host Driver (WHD), which replaces the monolithic build of our WICED stack used in previous releases with a

Task-Aware Debugging

I was asked a question last week about multi-threaded debugging in ModusToolbox IDE. I knew there was a plug-in for that but I had never used it. So I gave it a shot and here's how you can enable task-aware debugging with the FreeRTOS kernel.

It turns out that you do not need to install the plug-in - it is already there - but you do need

PWM Clock Sharing

Did you finish your homework? Well, here's an answer anyway. A couple of days ago I used a pair of TCPWM blocks to toggle the brightness of an LED at 1Hz. In that project I used an 8-bit clock divider as the source for the LED-driving PWM and a 16-bit divider for the slower toggling Timer-Counter. It worked just fine but it felt a little

Internally-Triggered PSoC PWM

I got "back on the blog" about a week ago and wrote about configuring PWMs and hooking them up to LEDs. It was simple stuff but hopefully got us all up to speed on configuring peripherals and connecting them to pins.

Bluetooth Mesh FAQ

I collected all the questions that you asked us at Alan's video workshop the other day, made sure the answers made sense, reordered them into a somewhat sensible arrangement, and put them into an FAQ. It is attached, below, in the downloadable file "Bluetooth Mesh Video Workshop FAQ.pdf". Hope you find it useful!

NOTE: You must

Second Chance to Watch Alan Hawse' Bluetooth Mesh Virtual Workshop

We had a really successful workshop on Wednesday this week. Plenty of people attended and Alan kept them all engaged with his knowledge, humor, and famous dancing skills. He programmed a bunch of Cypress CYBT-213043-MESH kits to be lights and switches, created networks and rooms (aka groups), then controlled LEDs via buttons on the (switch) kit

Back on the blog - Configuring PSoC PWMs

Back in February I committed to write about peripheral setup using the ModusToolbox device configurator tool. I have not done very well! We have had another release since then - ModusToolbox 1.1 - and I have been buried in planning for the 2.0 release and training our internal teams. But that is real work and I've had enough of it. It's time to
