hello,

 

I have a couple of CY8CKIT-059 boards. I broke the kitprog off of one of them and have been using it to program things. I want to use its virtual com port uart capability with 12.6 and 12.7 on J9 of the kitprog. however, it never enumerates as a virtual com port. I plugged in a non-separated cy8ckit-059 and the virtual com port appears in my device manager and terminal program. then, I went to the PSOC Programmer program (version 3.27.1) and the broken-off kitprog shows up in there as "KitProg (CMSIS-DAP/251530)" with a version of "CMSIS-DAP VERSION 1.0" while the non-broken-off one shows up as "KitProg/0f20183201324400" and says it is using kitprog version 2.20.

 

why is this separated kitprog acting different/weird? how can I get it back to a regular kitprog?

Hello.

To restore Kitprog, follow the instructions in Kitprog User Guide for KIT-059, Doc. # 001-96359
https://www.cypress.com/file/157966/download

Read chapter 8 for the restoration details and to understand the LED's.

Don't use Kitprog2 or Kitprog3 user guides to restore KIT-059 Kitprog.  Those guides are not used for KIT-059 Kitprog.

I have KIT-059 Kitprog version 2.16 and 2.21.  They both are snapped off KIT-059 and both are seen by serial software.  Both show the long string of digits ....400 like your working Kitprog.  I use PSoC Programmer 3.28.

You could also try the Kitprog update utility in PSoC Programmer.
