Apple and Linux OS Support for PSoC® Software and Kits - KBA87545

Version: *A



Do the Cypress Software tools and kits support Linux or the Apple Mac operating system?



Cypress software tools and kit hardware do not have native support for any Linux or Mac operating system. However, the software tools and hardware are tested using the virtual machine environment Parallels for Mac OSes. Currently, we do not test for any virtual machine environment that supports a Linux configuration.

As of Q2 2013, we test the Mac operating systems using the PSoC software and kits on the virtual machine software Parallels. The following configurations are tested and supported: 

  • Mac OS X Yosemite on VMware Fusion 7 running Windows 7 SP1
  • Mac OS X Yosemite on Parallels Desktop 10 running Windows 8.1
