I got a PSoC 3 Starter Kit last week and have done all the example projects without any problem. Today I started a new project, when I Build the main.c file it completes the operation, Build Succeeded, but when I program (Ctrl+F5) I get a Select Debug Target, Window. This is what is listed PSoC3 CY8C3866AX*-040
Available for use Unacquired.
I went to the Project > Device Selector and my CY8C3866AXI-040 is listed. When I return to Program I get the same message and no Programming occurs. Everything else seems fin. Am I missing something obvious? I can't see anything different from the examples given in the PSoC 3 First Touch Starter Kit.
PSoC3 device has had multiple revisions with continuous improvements. The devices were released as ES1, ES2 and ES3/production version, where ES- Engineering Sample. All the projects that come with the PSoC3 First Touch Kit are built for CY8C3866AXI-040 ES2. Hence all the projects work off the hand.
However when you build a new PSoC3 project it is necessary to select a suitable device type and version in the device selector. Ensure that the device selected us CY8C3866AXI-040/ES2 and then proceed. Picture attached illustrates the same.
Thank you for the tip that was the problem. I knew I was missing something, I am new to this software, but I already love it. As soon as I get use to it , I will be anxious to implement my project on it. Thanks again for the help.
