    How to resolve acquired device mismatch?


      I have a CY8C4128LQI-BL543 target. PSoC Creator 4.2 with a KitProg 2.21, Windows 10 Enterprise.


      In PSoC Creator, when I try to program it, I get this message:


      Error: dbg.M0023: There was an error while programming the device: PSoC Programmer reported error (100 - FAILED! EraseAll operation failed!)


      I notice this in the log:


      Programming CY8C4128LQI-BL543 image into CY8C4128FNI-BL563 device.


      which I find alarming. The target is truly an LQI device, not FNI - says so right on it. I checked. Twice.


      PSoC Programmer fails, too, with a similar message about the target types:


      ERROR! --->                                                        | The hex file does not match with the acquired device, please check the device


      What's going on here? Why doesn't it recognize my actual target? I'm assuming the discrepancy is what's holding up the download and is the root cause of the flash erase failure in PSoC Creator, as well.


      Sadly, I must admit there are a LOT of variables at work here. The last time I worked on this system, it was with PSoC Creator 4.0 and a MiniProg3. Those tools were not available to me today, so I had to use PSoC Creator 4.2 and a KitProg 2.21 (upgraded from 2.19). This required me to update components and freshen the dependencies in all three layers (boot loader, stack, app) to use the new components and file locations before I could even get it to build. But build it did, finally. Now I can't program it to my target using the KitProg 2.21, though.

        • 1. Re: How to resolve acquired device mismatch?

          Firstly, please make sure you are using the latest version of PSoC Programmer v3.28. If you don't have it, please download it here, and check if you are able to get it to work. A restart might be required.


          Secondly, please perform a quick check if you are generating the hex file in PSoC Creator for the right device. Right click on Project > Device selector to select the right device.


          Please copy all the lines from the log window and attach it here to provide us with more information about the behavior.

            From PSoC Programmer, showing correct version 3.28:

            I confirmed on the launcher, stack, and app projects the correct "LQI" device target. I also confirmed the LQI was in the cydsfit command line for all three:

            And lastly, it turns out we did have a MiniProg3 on hand after all, so without changing anything after the failure  shown above for PSoC Programmer, I simply disconnected the target cable from the KitProg and moved it to the MiniProg and ran it again... same hex file, same everything else... and it programmed the target JUST FINE, though it complained (erroneously, I think) about target power. I confirmed the new firmware was actually loaded by observing its operation (it returned a new version number from its interface to my system).

            From this I conclude that the image is obviously correct and the problem is limited to the KitProg in terms of it recognizing the target device hardware.

            • 3. Re: How to resolve acquired device mismatch?

              The MPN CY8C4128LQI-BL543 is not a Cypress developed kit and is provided only as a chip for custom hardware designs. Kitprog is an onboard programmer/debugger and supports only Cypress developed kits.


              It will not work (may, but no guarantee) with any custom hardware or Cypress Kits customized for different MPN.


              In summary, Kitprog might have problems, with one such being that it is unable to recognize the target properly since it is not a Cypress Developed Kit.


              Please proceed to use Miniprog3 for programming/debugging.
