I have just created a program to confirm P12.6 and P12.7 on both the kitprog and target boards. This confirms the pins are connected to the correct header pins that have the correct silk screen label. Are you sure you are not measuring the TX and RX pins between the kitprog and target board, these should be reversed.
Yes.
Sorry, my mistake, forget about.

I will settle for the remote instead of the mouse (for now) but with the miniprog 3 included (not that I need it now since I can use one of the 4 prototype boards I already have) I prefer to have a dedicated one.

Plus I had $25 credit because of forum participation (they just stop doing that and I didn't milk it but maybe others did) on the store so I could not resist getting the remote kit :)

With the cheapest shipping $12 mine came to $36.00 after applying the $25 coupon they e-mail me a while back, but I did order the remote.
Did you forget to put the discount coupon during checkout, because it's not automatic.

If they e-mail it to you, it should have had the subject: Your Cypress Store Coupon Order?

I did put it in, it shows up when I look at details but the amount wasnt taken off, it was in after I hit apply.. but then submit order and the discount dissapeared, waiting for a reply from them

Again they are out of stock. Do they make them in small batches or it's just people buying as many as they can?

And to think they can now replace all that with a PSoC 5LP using the KitProg software is amazing.

One of the reasons I got the PRoC remote kit is that it comes with a MiniProg 3 included all for $49

the 059 is now out of stock again, prolly another month till more will be stocked. I think they underestimated demand for this one :)


I want to get one of those 49$ remote things just to get the miniprog3 too :)

Well the chip itself goes for over $10 qty 1, and it comes with a 2nd 5LP (for the kitprog part)  that cost about the same.

Ordered both $49 kits, and a couple of the 5lp kits (again), and order already with FedEx, the mouse kit was said to be pre-order, but the order marked it as shipped, so it will be interesting to see what I get on Monday.

Double damn, I went for the remote because my last pre-order (the 5LP prototype kit) took around 2 months or so.

If any one is still looking to purchase the BLE remote kit or the CY8CKIT-059 board, Mouser currently have 10 of the remote kit and 434 of the CY8CKIT-059 in stock.

Got my remote today with the full miniprog and btw the mouse is available and in stock

http://www.cypress.com/?rID=102638

I think I'm going to pass on the mouse, the remote seems to suit my needs for now.

These are not dev boards so other than some test points there are no extra available GPIOs.
You could use the 16 pins used for the trackpad that uses a connector or take out some 0 Ohm resistors if you want to procure some from the audio input if you don't need that (4 pins) and 5 extra pins used for the motion sensor also has 0 Ohm resistors that could be taken out to re-purpose those pins.

Have to do some chores but I'll play with the MiniProg3 first :)

Got the remote, mouse and three more 5LP cards, on these cards it was written rev A on the packaging, and on the stick it self, Rev 05.

Dang, I got many miniprogs now ;)
