I assume you are using PSoC Creator 1.0 or later. We recommend you to upgrade you to the latest version of PSoC Creator that is available here, http://www.cypress.com/?rID=39551.
- In the latest version of PSoC Creator, when you click the program button, if the device selected in the project( using the device selector catalog the program) matches with the target device to which Miniprog3 is connected programming continues smoothly.
- If the programming does not start, the target device is not acquired and a window will appear similar to what is shown in the picture attached(prog1.jpg).
- Now Click on Apply Settings and the device connected will appear, http://www.dropmocks.com/mWfHV
- Now click Port Acquire, http://dropmocks.com/mWd_o . Click connect and then say OK, the device should program successfully.
- If the device does not appear in the list when Apply Settings is clicked, a possible reason could be due to the device may not being powered.
I saw a similar problem during one of our developer conferences. We had to uninstall and reinstall PSoC Programmer.
There's a connection between the J15 and BLE vdd beside the PROC/PSOC holders which kind of disconnects the BLE. So if you place the shunt then you can recognize your BLE on the computer. Try this out.
I am afraid that in 2011 there was not yet a Cypress BLE chip or board available, so what do you mean with your suggestion.
I' m getting the exact same problem. I installed and uninstalled PSoC Creator(4.1) multiple times, installed drivers and kits to no avail. then I decided to install the PSoC creator given with the PSoC4 BLE kit (PSoC Creator 3.3). Still it can't aquire the device. In device manager it shows up in COM port and device is working properly, but there's nothing in the port aquired window. Moreover, the links inside this post for correction have expired domain so I can't check them out too.
When there is no kitprog shown in the port acquire window try pressing the reset switch for more than 10s to change the mode (see kitprog manual).
