Which particular set of pins did you short together?
You can very well replace the CY8C5568AXI-060ES1 with non-ES1 part. It will work !!
I shorted P4_6 to GND with a 0-5V PWM-signal and now it does not work at all.
Thanks for your reply i think i will try the non -ES1 chip then.
I am sorry, but that will not work as expected. The x-tal inputs are connected on that board with the accellerometer which is not allowed on production silicon and will not be supported by your Creator software.
When compiling a project there are some hints:
Note: This project targets evaluation silicon (ES) that is not available for purchase. Be sure to use production-approved parts to ensure future support.
Note: The PSoC 5 FirstTouch Kit (CY8CKIT-014) uses the XTAL pins as GPIO to the accelerometer, which is not allowed in production devices. Do not re-target kit projects if you wish to use the accelerometer.
According to the pinout table P4_6 is just connected to J2 pin 7, the accel
pinout attached screen shot.
If P4_6 was connected to a PWM output, and P4_6 was an I or O, shorting
to ground would not have damaged chip. Due to the high Rdson of the high
side driver limiting current sourced out of the pin.
Is the CPU still running, and that pin non functional, or whole board not programming,

We used the PWM to control a DC motor through a MOSFET, but we had to verify the result with an oscilloscope. We used Pin 4_6 as an additional output for the oscilloscope which was also connected to GND. Unfortunately we shorted the oscillocope Pins while they where both connected to the PSoC kit and the Oscillocope. First the computer USB port did cut the power to the kit and then when we reconnected to another USB the Chip emitted quite a lot of smoke due to its size so now nothing really works.
Thanks Bob I am aware that things will be different :)
My biggest concern is that i am using the kit for for my education and thereby I will get around all the kit functions so if the accelerometer will not work on the production silicon that solution will not be compatible with my use of the kit..
Although the Kit-014 is no longer produced I recently saw some of them at a distributor's website, so if all other fails you might still get a new one
get a Kit -50 which has some space for a bredboard area (See this video http://www.cypress.com/?rID=60713 ) and which comes with a small two-line LCD (see specs http://www.cypress.com/?rID=51577&source=shop).
