Question: How do I program the M8 microcontrollers?
You need to have a programmer that supports the M8. There are many programming vendors that have support for the M8. If you are going to buy a programmer, we recommend the Hi-Lo System (Part ID: CY3649). Below is some information about programming the M8 with a Hi-Lo System programmer.
The programmer, Hi-Lo System - Cypress USB Programmer For Starter (Cypress Part ID: CY3649)
A center negative, 9VDC, 1000mA output wall bug (provided with the CY3649)
A RS232 cable with female connector type at one end and male connector type at the other (provided with the CY3649)
The Cypress Start Kit USB Programmer software (Cystart.exe). This is freeware and can be downloaded below.
An Adapter Base (needs to be purchased separately)
A Matrix Card (needs to be purchased separately)
For the 630xx family, the matrix card is not needed. If the package type is 630xx-PC (PDIP), the adapter is not needed as well (just a Hi-Lo programmer is enough). If the package type is SOIC, a AS-28-28-03S-6-GANG adapter is needed. This adapter can be purchased from Emulation Technologies - http://www.emulation.com/
