3.3 Programming the CY8CKIT-049-4xxx Kit
The CY8CKIT-049-4xxx kits are pre-programmed with firmware containing a bootloader. Therefore,
there are two methods of programming the onboard PSoC 4 device:
1. Perform UART bootload programming of the PSoC 4 device using the USB-Serial device as a
2. Use a CY8CKIT-002MiniProg3 to program and debug the target device directly.
Note that as long as the PSoC 4 device on the kit contains the bootloader, either method of program
ming can be used. If a project without a bootloader is programmed onto the PSoC 4, then only the
second method may be used until the PSoC 4 device is reprogrammed with a bootloader. In other
words, any project can be programmed using the MiniProg3 programmer, but only a bootloadable
project can be bootloaded using the first method.
Ah, should have read the pdf before watching the videos.
So, if I ever forget to use a boatloadable - I need this jtag adapter.
Just one question: Is it right that Verify does not work ?
06:51:34 PM - Selected device: USB Serial Port (COM21)
06:51:37 PM - Programming Started
06:51:38 PM - Programming Finished Successfully
Programming completed in 1673ms.
06:51:46 PM - Verify Started
06:51:55 PM - Communication port reported error 'Unable to read data from the target device'.
Verify completed in 9606ms.
I am facing a similar situation.
I cannot program the 049 (41xx) board the first time using bootloader. Followed all the steps but i get an error
Communication port reported error 'Unable to read data from the target device'.
Programming completed in 5644ms.Am i making some mistakeI am using windows xpcom port data rate 115200, stop bit 1, parity none.I have followed all the steps given in the guideI have update psoc programmer and creator as wellCan someone help?
Try using PSOC programmer, and reprogram the firmware
in the board (which releoads the bootloader).
i got 10x of those.
just opened anoth package and tried with a fresh new board, having same issue !!!
File a CASE and support can do a remote desktop session
To create a technical case at Cypress -
“Create a Case”
You have to be registered on Cypress web site first.
Not missing the push button step -
9. Connect the CY8CKIT-049-4xxx prototyping board tothe PC. When connecting the kit to the port,
depress the SW1button as it is plugged in.
You will notice that the LED begins to blink rapidly; this indicates that the PSoC 4 is in 'Bootloader
Mode' and is ready to be loaded with the latestfirmware. This must be done each time you boot
load the PSoC 4.
10.Select Tools > Bootloader Hostto open the Bootloader Host tool.
Sorry but these CY8CKITs are very bad!
Have tried it on 2 PCs but:
- the Device will not recognised automatically
- After manually intallation of the drivers, the device is showed up as COM6 in the "Bride-Controller-Panel" Tool
- But I cant programm it from the "Creator" --> Port aquire failed
- Also the Programmer tells me that no Port is available and the 42xx Line is not available
- Now after some deinstalls and reinstalls, the PC hangs up when I put the device into the usb port (now on both PC's).
- the second PC is crashes so bad that a system repaire was needed.
First PC ist Windows 7 64Bit, seconde PC is a Windows 7 32Bit.
Never get it running. What a shame!
When you get a "Port acquire fail" message you are doing something wrong, this happens when you program a Pioneer or a Kit-30 or Kit-50 and something fails.
I successfully programed (any of ) my Kit-049ers by choosing under "Tools" the item "Bootloader Host". The Kit-049 shows as a COM port, nothing else.
My windows configurations are similar to yours, a Vista and a Win7/64 and no issues at all.
As a matter of fact: Cypress gave away 1500 Kits on a faire in Germany within 3 days and only a very few people have trouble to get them working at once. Most of them forgot to press the switch while inserting the kit into the USB
The problem is that the Device IS NOT recognised by Windows (on both PC's!).
Maybe its because I use a german version of Windows?
On one PC i put one kit into a usb-port and nothing happens. Then i put a second kit into another usb-port and then the FIRST kit will be shown. the second NOT. Sorry but something must be wrong with the USB Enumerator. Is there a Way to clean deinstall all Cypress drivers and start over? If I deinstall the Software the whole system ist full of Cypress drivers.
And what could be the case, that Windows does not recognize the usb-device himself?
As posted earlier consider filing a CASE and doing a remote desktop
On another fork if using windows 7 download Windows WDK, or earlier devcon.exe,
and take a look at USB ports with that. A bit of a longshot, maybe your chipset driver
needs updating in your PC ?
This has nothing to do with a German version of windows, I use one, too (being located near Bremen, where do you live?)
I just plugged the Kit into an USB-port where it has not been in yet. I opened the installer window and after a minute the attached picture was the result.
