Code compatibilty between OTP and encoreII devices

Question: As encoreII is the suggested replacement for Cypress M8A and M8B series of devices (One Time Programmable), can the same code be used to program encoreII?

 

Answer:

         No, the micro-code used for OTP devices will not be compatible with encoreII devices. This is because the device architecture is not the same. You need to migrate your old design to encoreII using the new instruction set.  enCoReII code can be developed using PSoC Designer and can be programmed using PSoC Programmer. The development kit for encoreII is CY3655.
