i am trying to program CY8CKIT-050 through monoprog3 with psocprogrammer3.26 version,i got error
| FAILED! PSoC device is not acquired! Check connection of the chip to the programmer
Please, check the following items:
| - the connection between the programmer and the PSoC;
| - the correct programming protocol is selected;
| - the correct connector option is selected.
program failed while power LED blinking.
I was successful when I powered the board with the miniprog3. Check the power settings (jumpers) of the -050 and configure the programmer accordingly. There have been some errors concerning USB cable too long.
If you are using a Windows VM under VMWare, please be aware that the latest version of VMWare has broken the MiniProg3.
Your best chance to get things working it so buy a CY8CKit-059 and break off the small board, add plug and cable, and make it a debugger. It will work under VMWare.
The problem is that the Miniprog3 comes up as something else, has to be programmed by the Cypress Driver, and then it turns into a MiniProg 3. That sequence of events drives VMWare nuts, and it generally fails. I *have* had it to work if you are willing to wait 20 to 60 seconds for it to finally be recognized.
