mikroProg for PSoC is a fast programmer and hardware debugger. Smart engineering allows it to support all Cypress PSoC 5LP ARM Cortex-M3 devices in a single programmer. Outstanding performance, easy operation, elegant design and a low price are its top features. It is supported in the PSoC Creator IDE.
The programmer communicates with a PC through a USB cable, from which it also draws power. New device support is achieved simply by downloading the latest version of the PSoC Programmer software.
As of February 2014, the following devices were supported: CY8C5267AXI-LP051, CY8C5267LTI-LP089, CY8C5268AXI-LP047, CY8C5268LTI-LP030, CY8C5467AXI-LP108, CY8C5467LTI-LP003, CY8C5468AXI-LP106, CY8C5468LTI-LP026, CY8C5666AXI-LP004, CY8C5666LTI-LP005, CY8C5667AXI-LP006, CY8C5667AXI-LP040, CY8C5667LTI-LP009, CY8C5667LTI-LP041, CY8C5668AXI-LP010, CY8C5668AXI-LP013, CY8C5668AXI-LP034, CY8C5668LTI-LP014, CY8C5866AXI-LP020, CY8C5866AXI-LP021, CY8C5866LTI-LP022, CY8C5867AXI-LP024, CY8C5867LTI-LP025, CY8C5867LTI-LP028, CY8C5868AXI-LP032, CY8C5868AXI-LP035, CY8C5868LTI-LP038, CY8C5868LTI-LP039.
The programmer is connected to the microcontroller via a flat ribbon cable with a female IDC10 connector. You can design an appropriate 2×5 header into your system as explained in the user manual which you can download below.
The mikromedia for PSoC 5LP has pads to install a compatible 2×5 header. Note that this is a 0.1"-pitch connector; it is not a standard 0.05"-pitch Cortex Debug connector.

One nice feature of this programmer is how the ribbon cable goes into the device. It weaves through a slot on the PCB, so tugging on the cable cannot damage the internal connector.
Package Contents The mikroProg for PSoC ships with a USB cable and printed documentation. The free PSoC Programmer software can be downloaded from Cypress Semiconductor's web site. The software has mikroProg drivers for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. See the download links below.
