This is a working example of a PSoC project using the wi-fi from Artaflex.  It’s very hard to find a simple example as this one so I post it here. The important thing to remember is that it’s my first fully working code on this RF module AND I did not implement any feature yet. unfortunately I cannot attach the project, so use this link from PSoCDeveloper:


Now, get the PSoC set it on 5V, connect 100ohm resistors and 3.3v zener diodes to Port2 pin 7-3 and feed the RF with 3.3v from a separate supply. Remember to keep grounds connected.

If you do not want to go trough that, although it’s the easy way BY FAR!!!! you can do this:

1- use 3.3v on both PSoC and RF — unless you have a 3v LCD you MUST NOT use the display. Because reading data back from LCD at 5v will mess around with  the ZEN state of the circuit 🙂

2- use an LCD driver- 3.3v -> 5v.

3- NOT use an LCD but some LEDs you set yourself.

OK, I know it’s been a while but… I’m really really busy with a lot of projects.
I’ll post some here but in a while.

This post is about my greatest love in the silicon domain – no, I don’t refer to that wobbly stuff you put in boobs and such, but the one that governs you life! yeah, the stuff the integrated circuits are made of. . .

Here it is: THE one… THE only… THE P S O C i.e: programmable system on chip!

It’s just amazing. An MCU with hardware on it?!?! yeah, I know it’s been around for a while, but the got the PSOC 3 version out- 8051 Single Cycle processor and a lot of really nice hardware, current DAC, ADCs – quite a few to choose from 😀

Yeah, it does offer a lot of stuff! Fact, Cypress is working on the PSOC5 – still in silicon1 as we speak. That baby come with the ARM core and I tested it- it blows you out!

So, MCU and a lot of hardware in a chip smaller than a PIC… But… the best part is:
The documentation/help files of this baby are A M A Z I N G !!!!! from a first-time user point of view you get a working project in literary minutes

Cypress has a lot of other very nice stuff there, have a look:
