Hi,
does anybody know how to program this chip (CY7C63743C) from cypress, and if there is a cheap programmer compatible with this chip?
Thanks.

Are you sure, Keith? Because on cypress.com miniprog is not mentioned about programming CY7C63743C and even if miniprog is the correct programmer, I don't know how to connect it to the microcontroller...
Can you help me? Because on cypress.com it's not well explained...
Thanks.

No, I am not sure. I haven't full access to information at the moment but I will try to find out later when I am back at my computer. And yes, Cypress's web site is cr@p.

They are too much expensive for me...
The miniprog would be a good compromise.
I'll try to ask Cypress's support directly and we'll see what they answer...
Thanks for you support!

Also post on the psocdevelopers forum. I know the question has been asked on there before, but there are some good Cypress technical guys who hang out on there and you get through to the knowledgeable ones quicker than going through Cypress Tech support!

Best way is to download one of the many demo projects from the Cypress web site. If you buy one of their development/demo boards, that would be a good way to get started.

It depends which chip you have bought. Here are some: PSoC® 1 - PSoC - programmable embedded system - on - chip integrating configurable analog and digital peripheral functions - programmable - embedded control applications - mixed - signal controller functionality - Cypress Semiconductor

I used one of these first: CY3210 - PSoCEval1 - Cypress Semiconductor and if you look on that page there are loads of demo projects and application notes to go with it. You could use the demo projects from that board. Some are quite simple and that is always the best way to start.

Keith.
