Thanks for this post, very useful.
i have a question , right now i am following the videos of the Dave Vann Ess, in cypress.com , so can i program or create my own pwm design in psoc 4?.
Could you please clarify your question?
Did you mean to ask whether you can create custom PWM designs in PSoC 4?
The answer to this question is yes. You can create a custom PWM or any other digital design that would fit within 4 Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs) in PSoC 4.
Thanks for your fast response, yes i refer to create custom PWM designs in PSoC 4, simillar to the next video where Dave Van ess design and build in psoc 5 lp:
PSoC Today! UC Davis Lecture Part 4, i buld this in my psoc 3 kit030, so i will build this application with my psoc4 kit.
Sure.. I have already built a custom digital PWM (dual output with independent period counters, using just 2 UDBs) on PSoC 4, so I know that works.
All the best,
yes i like it
Did you know that PSoC Creator ships with many example projects to get you quickly up and running with PSoC 4?
One category of these examples that ship with the tool are called "Starter Designs" -- intended to be examples of common design configurations used in typical embedded systems.
I will show you how to access these Starter Designs today -
1. Launch PSoC Creator and start a New Project from the File menu
2.From the New Project window, scroll down to see the Starter Designs for the PSoC 42xx family. Here, you can select from the 5 included starter designs. You can also provide you own project name and path, and then press OK to create a new copy of this project on your computer.
3. In this example, I picked the first starter design "ADC_Differential_Preamplifier" and named it "My_ADC_Project". Once this new project is created, you will observe the already completed project schematic (topdesign.cysch), the project firmware (main.c) and also a document decribing this project in details (ADC_DiffPreamplifier.pdf).
4. To learn more about this particular project, see the included PDF document.
5. Finally, assign the GPIO for your project based on what target hardware you are going to run it on (e.g. the PSoC Pioneer Kit). Once completed, you can then Build and Program this project on your PSoC 4 Pioneer Kit.
Here's a list of the 5 Starter Designs included with the current version of PSoC Creator 2.2 SP1.
