It is a hardware problem.
When you broken prototyping kit into two parts you lose i2c and uart connections.
The five pins on the left are only for programming.
Below you can see the UART connection that no longer exists after the separation.
You have to use the pins in the picture below.
Hello, thank you for the quick response and that crucial bit of information. I have tried using an complete PSOC5 KIT and when I connect within the Bridge control the Protocol only has UART selected.
Above is a screen shot. I looks like that I am able to connect but the RX8(UART) is selected. Any ideas what I may be doing wrong?
Thank you very much,
You have to select Kitprog.
Hello, it appears that my PSOC5 Kit needs a firmware update. Here is the error I get when I click on KitProg:
Failed Connect to KitProg/131C0618001E6400. KitProg version Expecting 2.18, but found 2.11.
To update your firmware please close Bridge Control Panel and open PSoC Programmer.
Navigate to the Utilities tab and click upgrade firmware.
I'll have to try that at home and get back with you tomorrow.
I took the PSOC5 kit home and I was running BridgeControlPanel 1.18 on my home computer and was able to connect to the kit. I thought the error message that I posted meant that I needed to update the firmware on the kit which I did, if I'm correct.
When I try to connect the kit at work (this morning) that is running 1.16 I still get the same error message. Is the real problem with the version (1.16) that I'm running at work that is unable to connect to the kit?
Bridge Control Panel 1.16.0 require the firmware version 2.18.
Bridge Control Panel 1.18.0 require the firmware version 2.20.
So, the problem is not Bridge Control Panel 1.16.0, is the firmware version.
Try to update firmware with PSoC Programmer on the same computer with Bridge Control Panel 1.16.0.
My work computer is not connected to the internet. Could I try again at my home computer using PSoC Programmer?

I upgraded my firmware and upgraded to PSoC Creator 4.2 and all is working. Thank you very much for all your help.
