Which programmer tool are you using, the on-board KitProg/bridge or MiniProg-3 ?
Please check all switches on your kit are at correct place. In addition, please read user guide of your kit. Maybe it can help you out.
As I mentioned, it's WiFi-BT Pioneer Kit, not BLE kit, and I don't think MiniProg3 is included.
I found the "factory program restoration instruction" from KitProg2 guide here.
Followed the instruction 10.2.1.1 since there is no MiniProg3.
It couldn't find hex file, so I used KitProg2.hex file included in Programmer dir.
Firmware update passed, but still getting the same error I described when I program in PSoC creator.
Is anyone from Cypress monitoring the discussion board?
I really need to fix this ASAP...
Sorry for late reply.
Have you solved this issue? If not, I'd like to confirm -
- you mentioned you had successfully programmed the kit with same board settings & programmer settings, right?
- switch on SW3 to check if it works.
No, I couldn’t solve the problem, and the issue is still remained.
- Yes, it programmed successfully at the beginning, worked fine for first 2 or 3 days.
- I’ve already tried pressing every button on the board and different switch settings. Still having the same issue. I even tried pressing two or more buttons together and for the longer duration to see if there is a reset combination but didn’t help.
I have a similar problem - with a recently acquired PSoc6 BLE Pioneer Kit. Initially working fine, then start getting the error.
One difference is that in this case it is with KitProg3 (which came with the kit, in my case).
Upgrading the firmware of KitProg3 solved the problem.
yet, it is intermittent, as the problem reoccurred, and then was not solved by reprogramming the KitProg3.
So, I need another, separate programmer/debugger in order to solve this error?
I assume you mean miniProg3, not KitProg3 since KitProg seems like a name of the firmware, not the hardware programmer/debugger, according to this page.
I see the MiniProg is almost as expensive as the Wifi-BT kit itself.
What you're saying is, BLE kit has the programmer/debugger included.
I assume it's a Cy5677 BLE USB dongle according to this guide.
The whole BLE kit is still cheaper than the MiniProg itself.
Now my question is, can this BLE dongle be used to update the firmware?
It sounds more reasonable to get the BLE kit than the miniProg.
What's the point of the miniProg then? Is the dongle program limit only for the BLE kit? Is it compatible with Wifi-BT kit?
I'm sorry for the long writing, but I'm little confused as I'm new to the whole PSoC.
I not sure the following will solve your problem, but give it a try. I used the KitProg programmer - I suggest you just use KitProg2 what you have and reprogram it. To do so, launch PSoc Programmer (which comes with the installation) with the unit to be programmed plugged in (the KitProg2 should be recognized) and follow the directions (well-described in documentation) to update the firmware. Then, returned to PSoC Creator and programming the unit again. In my case, when the error occurred, I had a shield plugged into the unit with power. When I removed the shield, programming the MCU worked. I then plugged back the shield and then the whole application worked.
Guess I have no other option. Thanks for the suggestion.
