    Programming a CY8CKIT-059 without the IDE

    DaGi_900591

      I've just released an open source project based around a CY8CKIT-059 (FluxEngine; it's a floppy disk drive controller). Currently I have to tell people to download and install PSoC Creator in order to build the firmware and program the board (using the KitProg).

       

      I'd rather like to avoid this. I can provide a precompiled .hex file which people can program without needing to compile it themselves, but they still need a programmer. This only appears to be distributed alongside the IDE, so they still have to install that, which I'd like to avoid.

       

      Is there a way to get either the just the Cypress programmer as an individual download? Or some other way of getting the .hex file onto the device? (Ideally a standalone open source programmer I could integrate into the rest of my software would be ideal...)

       

      (BTW, mass storage programming doesn't support the PSoC5, which the CY8CKIT-059 is based around.)
