I had been successfully programming/debugging custom circuit using the CY8KIT059 kitprog for several weeks. The custom circuit being programmed utilized the psoc4 212006-1 and the kitprog FW was 2.11. After updating the FW to 2.18 as advised by psoc creator the programmer succussfully runs the main loop, but uart functionality stopped working. Specifically Rx always showing 0xff, scoping Tx showed expected data. More worrying after the FW update the 212006 module gets very warm. Measureing w DMM shows 140F. When the debugger is not connected to circuit the 212006 reads ambient ~70F. Aside from the heat issue and failing uart Rx errors the kitprog start/stops, steps thru code and programs the chip fine. Any ideas?
If you have any other kit with Kiprog, can you check if programming with that particular kit also faces same issues?
Can you revert it back to the old version and check if it is behaving normally as earlier?
