    miniprog3 arm debug port


      I am unable to program PSoC 5lp. I could see both the LEDs(Red-target supply and Green- Status) are ON. When I acquire the port, I am getting "ARM DEBUG PORT"(Screen shot attached) INSTEAD OF PSoC 5lp. Kindly let me know how to determine what is wrong. Appreciate any assistance.

          Hi Santhosh,


          A DVK or your own board are you playing?

          Suggest double-checking the hardware connection(power domain, switch...), port settings(voltage level, programming mode...).

          are the SWD ports required by other tool?

          A KBA about programming issue is FYI:

            Hi Ryan,


            It is a custom PSoC board. I was able to program it with Kitprog

            successfully. Issue is with the miniprog3.

              Hi Ryan,


              I have gone through the link. I checked the community threads as well. But I am unable to find any description of the issue or a solution.


              Hi All,


              Any workaround or solutions, please let me know.

                Did you already try to update the miniprog3 to latest revivion using PSoC Programmer?

                    Could you double-check the hardware connection of PSoC5 and MiniProg-3? Use programming cable as short as possible. 

                    Are there any other silicons on your board? MiniProg-3 has limited current sourcing strength.

                    Double-check VDDD, VDDA, VDDIO, VCCD...is connected correctly.

                      Dear Ryan,


                      Appreciate your assistance.

                      I checked the voltage levels and the also used the provided 10-pin

                      connector but getting the same error. But I am able to program it

                      successfully with PSOC 5lp CY8CKIT_059 successfully.
