Matt, there is still a faIr amount of trouble posts on forum on DMA.
You might browse forum to see what has been and is being discussed,
maybe a project witrh many workspaces doing simple examples.
Two recent discussion have been DMAing USB thru filter to VDAC, and another
having trouble passing 16 bit DMA to filter.
Another are would be a discussion/project on methods to offset analog into
CM range of PSOC. That seems to confuse folks.
Lastly SPI and I2C interfacing to popular parts, like T sensors, GPS, etc..
I think you do have adequate basic coverage, but people still getting hung
up on serial stuff.
One other, tunable digital filters, there is nothing on that yet.
Excellent, thanks much Dana.
danaaknight posted a great suggestion -- mostly because it was my problem. The solution was from userid PNN who provided a terrific configuration. Some version of the solution should be an example project.
Thank you for soliciting our input.
Is there any way to search for bootloadable projects? If I put boot in the search terms it only finds bootloadble/bootloader projects. That leaves me wondering if there are other projects that are incidentally bootloadable (but not described as such in the title.)
As you probably guessed, I'm using the board with no name. ;) (PSoC 4 CY8CKIT-049 4xxx Prototyping Kits)
(Sorry cannot seem to fix the font.)
It would also be cool to be able to search projects based on their applicability (or adaptability) to to any given platform + common peripherals such as LCD and so on.
Great question, Hank. Let me check around to see if there are more bootload/bootloadabe projects. There is a working group at Cypress on code examples. I know their first goal is to make sure it's easy to find all the examples and that all examples have the same minimum information. Further, in Creator we want to make it easy for users to find examples that are applicable to the kit(s) they have.
In PSoC Creator 3.0 and greater, if you go to File->Example Project (btw, I think we'll be changing that name to "Code Examples"), the Keyword filter is kind of like a search for examples based on a specific peripheral. Let me know if you have ideas on how to make that better (or if we just need a new filter(s)). See the attached screenshot.
By the way, I just call that kit "The $4 kit". I should probably be calling it "PSoC 4 Prototyping Kit".
Look for some Cypress kit announcements during Embedded World. There's one I'm excited about.

Matt one recurring example project that would be useful is a PID controller
application note. Cover Motor and a Temp controller example. This is
the basis of most control in all industrial systems.
Even tie in DFB as part of the solution.
Just a thought.
Please add as many examples as possible (in order preference) on features which separate PSoC from other uC:
1. DMA usage (DMA from anything to anything),
2. DFB assembler
Another feature request: On the source code preview window, would it be possible to to include a search function? Some of the exam[ples are extensive and it's not always easy to determine if an example address what I'm looking for. Searchiobng for key terms or strings might help answer that without loading the project or copy/pasting the entire example source code to an editor windoww.
Another example project, a wear leveled project to emulate
EEPROM in FLASH, PSOC 4 in specific. Base it on error
detection/correction to maximize FLASH use before going
on to the next FLASH region.
