The PSOC Programmer finds our Cypress board fine and successfully downloads the Hex file.
However, the driver station does not see the Cypress board. As suggested in another thread, we have uninstalled and reinstalled (now 4x) the mandatory update for the Cypress board - no luck. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Go to Control Panel and check that the Cypress Mini Prog 3 service is configured for auto startup and is running.
Are you sure the drivers are installed correctly? Go to device manager and look under the USB heading. Make sure you see the board listed and that it is not “Unconfigured”.
Also, if you press the Button on the board, do the LEDs light up and show you the firmware version of 2 in binary (the second LED lights)? This only works if the driver station is not talking to the board.
Has anyone got this fixed yet? We have spent pretty much the whole day reinstalling the Cypress software, and driver station updates - over and over. The driver station software refuses to recognize the Cypress. All updates have been applied, the Cypress service is running, but it’s just not working. Frankly, we’re ready to throw the netbook out the window! :mad:
You should plug the IO board directly into the classmate and everything else into the hub. This is the expected default configuration. It should be in the documentation somewhere, but I’m not sure where.
Thanks! Plugging the PSoC directly to the classmate and everything else to the USB Hub seems to work. I did not find a connection diagram either.
Warning: shorting the 3.3v on the PSoC (like with wiring mistakes) shuts it down: I/O light goes off and green light also goes off on the PSoC. Weird thing is that using 1 Analog Input port shows other 3 following. They probably need to be grounded.
This is typical of a multiplexed A-to-D converter having very high input impedance. If you don’t have a channel connected to anything, the input to the converter has nowhere to dump its electrons and thus retains the voltage from the previously selected channel.
