CY8CKIT-002 PSoC MiniProg3 Program and Debug Kit
The PSoC MiniProg3 Program and Debug Kit is an all-in-one programmer for PSoC 1, PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures, debug tool for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures, and a USB-I2C Bridge for debugging I2C serial connections and communicating to PSoC devices.
The Miniprog3 supports the following protocols:
Included with the kit is a 10-pin ribbon cable for connecting to standard 10-pin JTAG header interfaces utilized for our PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures while the device itself supports the 5-pin ISSP programming header for PSoC 1 architectures. The 5-pin connector also supports the USB-I2C Bridging capabilities and is a superset of the CY3240 capabilities. Please note, the CY8CKIT-002 only contains the Miniprog3 and supporting cables.
Cypress Semiconductor has completed a hardware update to the Miniprog3 to address hardware issues seen with programming, ESD, and power management. The Miniprog3 revision, either *A or *B, is indicated using sticker on the back of the programmer. The following are a list of updates made to the Miniprog3 *B programmer.
The Miniprog3 hardware has been updated to better improve power cycle programming for all PSoC devices. It was discovered that the Miniprog3 *A programmer revision did not correctly implement the power cycle programming methodology. Due to this issue the Miniprog3 *A programmer could not correctly support power cycle programming for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices. This specifically impacts customers who do not route out the XRES line to the programming connector or disable the optional XRES line on certain devices. The *B revision of the Miniprog3 will support power cycle programming for all PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices.
There are known electrical risks to the Miniprog3 *A revision that have been addressed with the *B update. To address the electrical issues the Miniprog3 *B programmer has added ESD over-current protection to the USB lines and has added electrical protection to the 5 and 10-pin connectors in case of a reverse polarity condition.
The Miniprog3 *B programmer has been updated to improve the voltage detection capabilities. The Miniprog3 will measure the target voltage within an accuracy of 20 mV for a range of 1.8V – 5.0V.
The Miniprog3 *B programmer is supported on the latest release of PSoC Programmer.
