Forgive me in advanced if I don't make this question clear enough, I'm just getting my head around this new device and related terminology.

cypress psoc 5lp

I just got a psoc 5lp with onboard kitprog - (CY8C5888LTI - LP097) and i am trying to do a basic 'hello world' using USBUART (CDC Interface V3.2) to 'print' the state of the onboard button and I am unable to see any of my putstring commands in my teraterm serial reader.

I have been able to create a working program using the RX connection to my output pin with a 'normal' UART, which is my understanding that uses the kitprog as a serial connection. But am unable to get anything from the USB connection that is directly connected to the psoc I am programming. (socket labelled J5 on board, as shown in picture)

Checking my device manager I can see the KitProg showing under Ports, which is how I understand the 'normal UART' connection was working, but that is it.

I feel like I am missing something really simple, but if anyone can give me a step in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

I am following a tutorial on youtube step by step to no avail.

  • \$\begingroup\$ I couldn't find out how to set it in psoc creator so I tried them all?! I could set it with the 'normal' UART, but could not see it with usbuart in psoc creator. \$\endgroup\$ – Ashley Reid Jun 17 '18 at 16:10

It was a faulty/incompatible USB cable... I am loving life right now.
