PSOC5LP and QT-Creator

If you have read the previous two posts, you know that Rolf Noteboom of OneThinx has posted how to debug the PSOC5LP on Mac/Linux/Windows, only using PSOC Creator for the Warp Verilog design and compile cycle through the GUI schematic. I followed that and was able to get the...

Intermission: PSOC5 Compile/Debug Natively on the Mac Part 2 (Updated)

I did not expect to make another post about this, but I have some experience with this process now. Update includes info (see BIG HINT) on the debugger part, and running software on later Mac builds. Setup Stumbles During my attempt to set up this environment at home, it...

Intermission: PSOC5LP Compile/Debug On Mac (Updated)

I found out about OneThinx a few months ago, but never had the round-tuit. I acquired a tuit the other day, about the same time I came across Rolf Noteboom’s post on the Cypress (Infineon) community page where he indicated he had done a Visual Studio project for PSOC5...

SOCino-Ramps Available (Updated)

The SOCino-ramps board is available with this post. It is released under the GPL V3 (or later) version. A commercial license is available. This license does not override previous licenses. Because Infineon does not want psoc associated with a product name, (possibly due to trademark requirements), it is called...

3D Printer – Running Motors

An FDM 3D printer uses a nozzle that is heated to the liquid point of the “printing” material and moves that nozzle in specific patterns. These patterns are governed by command from a printing program. The commands are called G Code commands, and became the first standards in controlling...

3D Printer Text Based Menu

Life is what happens while you are making other plans. (This quote is a secular rephrasing of Proverbs 16:9 circa 350 B.C. See https://quoteinvestigator.com/2012/05/06/other-plans/) Well, I have been hit squarely in the head by my proposing and God’s disposing. That makes this post *much* later than it should be....

Display Part 3: Rotary Switch And Buttons

In the continuing saga of blending a CY8CKit-059 board from Cypress Semiconductors (owned now by Infineon) into the 3D printer world, I am now working on the Display. In previous posts, the inexpensive RepRapDiscount Full Graphic Smart Controller has been the bane of my programming existence. I now have...

Display Part 2

Last time I had (finally!) correctly initialized the display and printed ASCII text on it. The problem I immediately ran into was the fact that 4 lines by 16 characters was not enough to display what I wanted. A lot of the displays out there are 4 lines by...

3d Printing: Display Part 1 & Project Name

I contacted Cypress/Infineon, and they do *NOT* want the term PSoC ™ used in conjunction with a product. I suppose there is some trademark law involved also. The interesting thing was their list of trademarked items sent back to me did not include PSoC. I will always use PSOC...

PSOC KitProg Bonus: 5V TTL Serial UART / I2C Ports

During my projects, I often find I need a Serial UART to communicate with my devices (especially in this world of IOT). I often build in a Terminal Debugging feature which typically operates at 115,200 baud. That baud rate was difficult to consistently achieve around a decade ago, but...
