Error - Project is incompatible with the Pod/Chip

Question: When I try to connect with a debugging pod, I get the message, "This project is incompatible with the Pod/Chip".  What is the cause and how do I fix this?

 

Answer:

When connecting to the pod, the ICE verifies if the silicon ID of the pod matches with the silicon ID of the chip used in the PSoC Designer project. If these two IDs do not match, then the above error is generated.  Make sure that you have selected a device for the project that is supported by the pod.  For example, if you have a pod for the CY8C29x66 family, you have to select a device from the CY8C29x66 family for the project.
