    Running AN91184 on a CYCKIT-042-BLE-A


      Rookie question here. I just got a CYCKIT-042-BLE-A.


      The baseboard says “CYCKIT-042-BLE-A PIONEER BASEBOARD” and has a CY8C5868LTI-LP039 installed on it.


      The plug-in module has a CY8C4248LQI-BL583.


      With AN91184, which processor am I programming: the baseboard’s CY8C5868LTI-LP039 or the module’s CY8C4248LQI-BL583. AN91184 discusses hardware connections to the baseboard but has BLE which is only on the plug-in module. What am I not understanding?

          You will always be programming the PSoC 4 BLE module ( CY8C4248LQI-BL583 device) . The CY8C5868LTI-LP039 chip is a PSoC 5LP device, that has KitProg firmware, used as an onboard programmer or debugger, and for the USB-Serial interface.

          KitProg is the hardware/firmware block for onboard programming, debugging, and bridge functionality. It is a common reusable hardware/firmware block used across many Cypress kit platforms. It consists of a PSoC 5LP, which connects to the computer over an USB interface and connects to the PSoC 4 BLE device over SWD, I2C, and UART pins. The KitProg communicates with PSoC Programmer and PSoC Creator software to program/debug the target PSoC 4 BLE over the SWD interface. The main advantage of an onboard programmer/ debugger is that users do not have to buy an extra programmer/debugger hardware.


          Kindly refer to the user guide for the kit for more information on this.
