I keep on getting this error (see below). I am using a custom board layout with a CY8C3244LTI-130ES2 chip. Does anyone know why this is happening or how to fix it? I have a MiniProg3 Rev5 programmer/debugger and the board is connected to the appropriate 10 pin connector to match. help please?

   

dbg.M0023: There was an error while programming the device: (PSoC Creator received error (100 - FAILED! Timeout of SPC polling. Lost communication with chip.))

Hi maudi,

   

Is it correct to say that this new board has never been successfully programmed?

Hi maudi,

   

No easy way out then.

   

You would have to start with the basics and verify your circuit.
You may want to verify your programmer on a known working board.
If you are using SWD remember the programming clock must 1/3 or less of the PSoC freq.

   

Good luck

Please try this workaround:

   
        
  1. Connect Miniprog3 to PC
  2.     
  3. Connect Miniprog3 10 pin connector to target
  4.     
  5. Open Programmer
  6.     
  7. Execute Program Function
  8.     
  9. SPC polling Error
  10.     
  11. Execute any function other than Program (checksum, read, verify, or erase.)
  12.     
  13. Execute Program
  14.     
  15. Programming Successful
  16.    
   

Let me know if this can work out for you.

   

 

   

Thanks,

Hi all,

   

 

   

I've isolated the problem and created a application to fix this issue.

   

 

   

Problem:

   

- the System Performance Controller (SPC) times out when the WO latches aren't set to zero.

   

 

   

Solution:

   

- program the WO latches with all zeroes. PSoCprogrammer doesn't do this once the device is programmed (avoiding overprogramming the latches) so I created a smal .NET utility to fix this. 

   

 

   

It can be downloaded here:

   

http://www.nooteboom.biz/downloads/FixSPCtimeout.zip

   

 

   

Success!

Update:

   

 

   

Now with PP_COM wrapper in the zip (has to be unzipped to the same folder as the .exe). Also make sure PSoCprogrammer is installed.

   

 

   

Please let me know if this works for you.

   

 

   

Regards,

I am using a custom board layout with a CY8C3244LTI-130ES2 chip too. I have the same problem. I install the .NET utility  FixSPCtimeout. But it did not help me. 

   

Run the program.
Choose options: 3.3v,Reset,10pin-  FIX.  

   

appears:

   

NVL DATA @ 0xF8 read from Chip:00 00 00 00

   

NVL DATA olready okay..

   

 Then run the programmer, programming chip. But still keep on getting this error .

Hi,

   

I have the same problem.  I tried this .net app but the error still exists.  Was anybody able to resolve this issue?.

   

 

   

Thx,

Do you have more info?

   

What's the version of your PSoC Programmer and Miniprog?

   

Was the part already programmed before?

   

How's the hardware setup, is it a custom made PCB?

   

 

   

Regards,

I too have a similar problem.

   

I moved from PSOC3 ES2 to ES3 in the last few days.

   

I have a progam which, when it runs, seems to corrupt something critical within the PSoC3.

   

(It is a port of a Keil uVision4 C project meant for standard 8051s).

   

The parts program fine the first time but after this they are un-reprogrammable.

   

When I try to use PSoC Creator to reprogram, I get the following messages:

   

dbg.M0033: The selected debug target 'CY8C3866LTI-068 UNASSIGNED' is not compatible with the project's selected device 'CY8C3866LTI-068 ES3'.

   

or

   

dbg.M0033: The selected debug target 'CY8C3866LTI-068 ES1' is not compatible with the project's selected device 'CY8C3866LTI-068 ES3'.

   

 

   

Using standalone PSoC Programmer:

   

Auto Detection off:

   

Program Finished at 13:05:16                                    |
FAILED! Timeout of SPC polling. Lost communication with chip.

                                                                | Programming Terminated

Device set to CY8C3866LTI-068 at 13:11:14                       | 65536 FLASH bytes

   

 

   

This has happened on 3 new devices. 

   

Ant ideas on what is being corruoted or how I could "reset" PSoC contents ?

Hello,

   

How many of your samples are giving this message? Is it ES2 or ES3? Are you using Cypress supplied kits or your own Development kit?

   

I would like you to file a technical support case just so that we can see if there is a need to do failure analysis or something of that sort on this chip.

   

Thanks,

   

Vivek
