The default configurations can be found in boards/infineon/cy8cproto_063_ble/cy8cproto_063_ble_defconfig

System Clock

The PSoC 63 BLE MCU SoC is configured to use the internal IMO+FLL as a source for the system clock. CM0+ works at 50MHz, CM4 - at 100MHz. Other sources for the system clock are provided in the SOC, depending on your system requirements.

OpenOCD Installation

To get the OpenOCD package, it is required that you

  1. Download the software ModusToolbox 3.1. https://softwaretools.infineon.com/tools/com.ifx.tb.tool.modustoolbox

  2. Once downloaded add the path to access the Scripts folder provided by ModusToolbox export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/ModusToolbox/tools_3.1/openocd/scripts

  3. Add the OpenOCD executable file’s path to west flash/debug.

  4. Flash using: west flash –openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd

  5. Debug using: west debug –openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd

Fetch Binary Blobs

cy8cproto_063_ble board requires fetch binary files (e.g Bluetooth controller firmware, CM0p prebuilt images, etc).

To fetch Binary Blobs:

west blobs fetch hal_infineon

Programming and Debugging

The CY8CPROTO-063-BLE includes an onboard programmer/debugger (KitProg3) with mass storage programming to provide debugging, flash programming, and serial communication over USB. Flash and debug commands must be pointed to the Cypress OpenOCD you downloaded above.

On Windows:

west flash --openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd.exe
west debug --openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd.exe

On Linux:

west flash --openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd
west debug --openocd path/to/infineon/openocd/bin/openocd
