    remote interfacing to the capsense

    user_420283366

      Hello all,

         

      I want to facilitate my capsense board with the remote to control the applications corresponding.

         

              I'm using the board for the electrical switching application,

         

      1. in that i want to give the remote control facility with the default touch switching.

         

      2. is it feasible

         

      3. suggest, awaiting for them.

         

      Thanks & Regards-

          The answer could be "BLE" if I understand your question for a remote control correctly. secure.cypress.com/BLE/

            PRoC BLE would be wireless solution.

            What is the distance you want to control over, and do you want it networked

               

            or just point to point ?

              • Hi Dana & Bob,
              •     
              • what i wish to use the normal IR remote to control the switching of appliances @ household.
              •     
              • If i build an separate circuitry to send & receive the IR signals, Is it possible to interface it with the Capsense for proper swithing work?
              •     
              • I mean if I take a separate remote (with Rx @ the same board) & interface its o/p to the capsense board, will that work?
              •     
              • I wish to use it for the distance around 30Ft around.
              •     
              • I want it to work like a normal remotes e.g. T.V. remote.

                When you are looking for a single solution (not a series of boards) you may tinker a solution that will work. There are some receivers availlable like this simple one pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/123065/VISHAY/TSOP34838.html. Some years ago I built an interface using two PSoC1 development kits. Today I would use PSoC4 Pioneer boards.

                  Hello Bob,

                     

                  I will go through it n see what I will get. I'm also considering tight to shift to PSoC 4. Sooner will get it worked whether to or not to.

                     

                  But as for me to understand more can you dig & give me some details of your project you mentioned, I think it will surely help me on either versions.

                     

                  Thanks & Regards-

                    No leftovers from a 7 year old PSoC1 project, sorry. What I remember is I was using a receiver with integrated filter like this one www.produktinfo.conrad.com/datenblaetter/175000-199999/184302-da-01-en-IR_RECEIVER_2_7_5_5V_OS_0038K_K.pdf

                       

                    The sender was a simple IR-LED which was controlled with a PWM at 38kHz frequency

                        Hello Dana & Bob,

                           

                        I wish to know that Can I use the PSoC Designer 5.4 to do the programming of PSoC 4 family devices, e.g. CY8C4125AXI-483? I have searched the Device catalog in it & I didn't find it.

                           

                        Which tool should I need to use to get it enabled? Isn't there anything that will work for the all PSoC 1,2,3,4,5?

                           

                        Another thing is about the PSoC programmer,

                           

                        If I have an .hex file of any device family; say of PSoC4 itself & I am using the PSoC Programmmer 3.18.1; will I be able to download the .hex file through the Programmer 3.18.1(for any device family)?

                           

                        Please guide me on this---

                           

                        I wish to use PSoC 4 controller, tell me the versions of the Designer & the Programmer for the same.

                           

                        Please be the quickest to answer, Its urgent.

                           

                        Thanks & Regards-

                          Latest IDE and programmer you will get when installing Creator 3.1 from Cypress website. This allows you for designing PSoC3,4, 4BLE and 5. When you design your own pcbs you will need a MiniProg3 to program the chips. Development kits for these PSoCs usually contain an additional programming chip, so that the interface is using USB directly. Both methods allow for debugging (setting breakpoints, inspecting variables and call-stack).

                             

                          Members of the PSoC1 family can only be designed with Designer (latest version 5.4), they can be programmed with a MiniProg or a MiniProg3. Debugging can only be done with an In-Circuit-Emulator (ICE) which is a comparably expensive device.

                             

                          As a starter for PSoC4 I suggest you to get hands on a Pioneer Kit with a CY8C42xx chip. It is a very handy device, but lacks an LCD.which cannot be connected as easy as some of the other kits allow. There is a very low-priced prototype kit that can be programmed via USB, but for this kit there is no debugging.except with a MiniProg3. So testing the software on a Pioneer kit and then using a Prototype Kit for small series without the need of designing your own PCB could work pretty good.

                            Hi Bob,

                               

                            I'm using the PSoC Designer 5.4, I tried searching the device catalog in it but I didn't find any of the PSoC 4 devices.

                               

                            Does this mean that I need to leave the PSoC 1 & grab the PSoC 4 Family?

                               

                            If I'm switching to #4 I need to get the Pioneer Kit. That will solve the all issues related to #4 family, right?

                               

                            Can I migrate to PSoC 5LP (in future) from #4 if I need to?

                               

                             

                               

                            Another I don't know a bit of PSoC Creator, can you give anything to understand it like docs or videos.....anything.

                               

                            Thanks & Regards-

                              PSoC Creator differs a bit from Designer. The chip-view is replaced by a schematic view and you can drag & drop the usermodules  (components) from a component catalog to the schematic and connect them with wires. There are more than 100 components which can make life a bit difficult, but for each of them is a documentation.pdf that clearly shows how to manipulate the properties of the device and how to use the APIs. There are a lot of videos showing how to. you may start here video.cypress.com/video-library/video/PSoC

                                 

                              Additionally you can download and install Creator from here www.cypress.com/psoccreator/ and play around with it. When starting Creator there is the opportunity to load an example project, you find example projects for many of the components (constantly getting more and more) and you fing example projects for kits when you have got one.

                                 

                              Have a look at Creator, it is co-existent with your Designer installation and you can judge for yourself.

                                    Creator is a simulator . In general if you have used circiuit simulator for circuit debugging then you can understand it closely resembles with Creator in usefulness,

                                       

                                    Bob are you agree?
