FreeRTOS 8.0.0 for PSoC 5LP (CY8CKIT-050 PSoC 5LP Dev Kit) using ARM MDK compiler

These example projects are designed to run on the CY8CKIT-050 (PSoC 5LP Developers Kit) from Cypress Semiconductor. A full description of the kit, along with more example programs and ordering information, can be found at http://www.cypress.com/cy8ckit-050.

This kit is a development platform for the PSoC 5LP family of devices. It includes a CY8C5868AXI-LP035 part with 256kB on-chip flash memory and 64kB SRAM. It enables you to evaluate, develop and prototype high precision analog, low-power and low-voltage applications powered by Cypress’s CY8C58LP high precision analog device family. The kit hardware provides the following features.

  • Two 20x2 expansion connectors
  • Breadboard prototyping area
  • 5-element CapSense™ slider and two buttons
  • USB connector
  • 9-pin D-sub serial port connector
  • Four user LEDs
  • Power and status LEDs
  • Reset and two user push-button switches
  • Potentiometer
  • 3.3V or 5.0V operation (jumper)
  • JTAG/SWD debug connector 10 pin 0.1”
  • On-board debugger

To build/program/modfy the attached examples, use the free PSoC Creator 3.0 software IDE (http://www.cypress.com/psoccreator).

In this package the Microcontroller Developers Kit (MDK) compiler from ARM Ltd. is used to build all projects. This compiler not included in the PSoC Creator product but is available for download at https://www.keil.com/demo/eval/arm.htm

To explore the applications in PSoC Creator open the workspace file “CY8CKIT-050-MDK.cywrk” . This workspace includes the following projects.

  • Demo.cyprj
  • NewDesign.cyprj

Programming/debugging is provided through either the on-board USB connector J1 or the Cypress MiniProg3 debug adapter (not provided in the CY8CKIT-050 kit) on header J3.
