My PSoC-5 Kit arrived today. There are so many features on the board and it looks great.
Received mine in California yesterday. Thanks.
My kit arrived too. Great hardware. The on-board cap-sense buttons are a really nice feature.
Anyone have experience using this programmer via an WinXP Virtualbox?
"Anyone have experience using this programmer via an WinXP Virtualbox?"
Not here, though I'll probably give it a try on a Windows XP guest under Linux via VMWare. I'll let you know how that turns out. The PSoC is my low level IO platform with higher level networking, decision making, etc stuff implemented elsewhere in Linux... I'd rather not have to dedicate two separate PCs for development.
I haven't tried exactly what your asking for, but I run PSoC Creator on a MacBook Pro via Parallels and have never had a problem programming in the virtual machine.
That is exactly what I am after. On my MBP, I run XP Virtualboxes for each of my development platforms. I've installed all the drivers but it won't detect the programmer. It is still listed as an unknown device. The virtualbox had the same issue with TI's msp430 too. For that I had found an unofficial mac driver for the msp430-fet and it allowed the virtual box to properly see the programmer. Fortunately, I also have a Win7 pc to use as well. The kit works great on there.
I tried Virtualbox for a short time and had issues similar to yours. I probably could have resolved them, but who has time to muck with a tool that should just work? VMWare seems to do better for me, though I haven't actually tried it on this yet.
