PSoC Creator is an Integrated Design Environment (IDE) that enables concurrent hardware and firmware editing, compiling and debugging of PSoC 3, PSoC 4, PSoC 4 BLE, PRoC BLE, PSoC 5LP and FM0+ systems with no code size limitations. PSoC and FM0+ peripherals are designed using schematic capture and simple graphical user interface (GUI) with over 120 pre-verified, production-ready PSoC and FM0+ Components™.
PSoC and FM0+ Components are analog and digital “virtual chips,” represented by an icon that users can drag-and-drop into a design and configure to suit a broad array of application requirements. Each component in the rich mixed-signal Cypress Component Catalog is configured with a Component Customizer and includes a full set of dynamically generated API libraries. Once the PSoC system has been configured, firmware can be written, compiled, and debugged within PSoC Creator or exported to top 3rd party IDEs from IAR, Keil, and Eclipse.
PSoC and FM0+ Systems are energy optimized beyond a typical MCU because PSoC Creator optimizes designs using only the required functionality. Users can create custom PSoC or FM0+ Components using state machine diagrams or Verilog within PSoC Creator to further optimize hardware and energy usage.
PSoC Creator is a free Windows-based IDE that includes:
Hardware design with complete schematic capture
Over 120 pre-verified, production-ready Components
Full communications library including I2C, USB, UART, SPI, and Bluetooth Low Energy
Tools to develop custom components in Verilog or via state machine diagram
Compatibility with the Peripheral Driver Library
Dynamically generated API libraries
Integrated C source code compiler and editor
The install worked.
What does not
The GUI does not work
What was not tested
The command line tools
Had to use winetricks to install dotnet 2.0 SP1 and dotnet 4.0 for the install to complete.
