As I understood (please correct me when I'm wrong) the PSoC 4 chip has not as much debug capabilities as the PSoC3 or 5.
To avoid creating debug-capable silicon in low volume as was done with PSoC1 and having the need of special hardware (ICE-Cube) there was a new way created: A programmer/debugger interface was created and programmed into -- a PSoC of course. This will now make up the interface between PSoC4 and the PC which as in the -001 kit has been performed by separate hardware. Now to unify those interfaces you can build a board which works that way for all processor-modules with the exeption of PSoC1 which will still need the debug-silicon but probably not the ICE.
This are pure personal assumptions, Cypress: Correct me where I am wrong...
Looks like a move to unify the low end into a single kit, ultimately
all PSOC into a single kit ????..........driving development costs and ease
Hello Is there any details of this kit, or it was discontinued? I just ask because I would like to use SPI in Bridge Control Panel software and here is noted support for DVKProg1 (which could be CY8CKIT-100) Regards Radim
Found this in Programmer Release notes 2013
Support for PSoC 1 Development Kit (CY8CKit-100)
PSoC Programmer 3.18 has added programming support for the PSoC 1 Development Kit (CY8CKit-
100). This development kit provides support for small processor modules, similar to the processor
modules supported on the CY8CKit-001.
The CY8CKit-100 provides programming and debugging capabilities using a PSoC 3 device. This
device will enumerate as a DVKProg1 from within PSoC Programmer.
This development kit will support a number of PSoC 1 based processor modules as well as one
PSoC 4 based processor module. The PSoC 4 based processor module will support the CY8C41xx
For the PSoC 1 based processor modules PSoC Programmer has added programming support as
well as enabled programming from within PSoC Designer.
For the PSoC 4 based processor modules both programming and debugging is supported in PSoC
Programmer and PSoC Creator.
Youy might file a CASE, post back here for forum, what was this DVK, what did it evolve to ......
