PSoC® 5 Support in PSoC Creator™ 3.0 and Later – KBA92931

Version: **

 

Question: Why is PSoC® 5 not listed in PSoC Creator™ 3.0 and later?

 

Answer:

PSoC Creator no longer supports the PSoC 5 silicon starting from PSoC Creator 3.0. The PSoC 5 devices have been functionally replaced by equivalent PSoC 5LP devices.

If you open a project that targets an obsolete part, the dialog shown in Figure 1 will appear.

Figure 1. Obsolete Device Dialog

The dialog suggests the appropriate new part number, and clicking OK will update the project to the functionally-equivalent device. This will automatically create a backup of the original design. Clicking Cancel will abort the opening of the project.

Note that if you wish to migrate PSoC 5 designs on Cypress® development kits to the new kits (with PSoC 5LP devices) the new target part number should be CY8C5868AXI-LP035. This is different from the part listed below (CY8C58568AXI-LP032) because the 035 part also supports the CAN interface, which was needed in the development kit. In this situation, click (choose another replacement) to launch the Device Selector dialog and switch to the LP035 part.

Table 1 lists all the obsolete parts and their functional equivalents.
