PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

Anonymous
Not applicable

I have programmed the PSoC 5LP with PSoC Creator for a long time. I have not missed anything. It all works fine. Now, I got hold of a few CY8CKIT-059 prototyping kits. It advertises it supports KitProg. To me it appears it fulfills no purpose. I use PSoC creator to Develop, compile, download, debug code. What does KitProg add to the table?

Is this something I need for some reason I can not see?

KitProg does not add anything to the C88CKIT-059, because KitProg is already part of the CY8CKIT-059 board!!

The smaller break-off section of the board (with the standard USB plug fabricated on the PCB is in fact the KitProg module which allows you to program a blank device and debug the target code. Once the target is programmed it is perfectly possible to break the board in two, leaving the target to run normally and to use the kitprog module to program other devices.

Kitprog is a PSoC5LP based on board programmer/debugger hardware tool, it also works as a USB-I2C or USB-UART Bridge. With this hardware tool, you can program/debug PSoC 5LP without Miniprog3 or other hardware tool.
