Clocking
PSoC Creator Clocking Implementation
PSoC devices supported by PSoC Creator have flexible clocking capabilities. These clocking capabilities
are controlled in PSoC Creator by selections within the Design-Wide Resources settings, connectivity of
clocking signals on the design schematic, and API calls that can modify the clocking at runtime.
This section describes how PSoC Creator maps clocks onto the device and provides guidance on
clocking methodologies that are optimized for the PSoC architecture.
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP devices have different clocking architectures than PSoC 4 devices. The
System Clock consolidates Bus Clock (BUS_CLK) on PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP devices and SYSCLK
on PSoC 4 devices. The Master Clock consolidates Master Clock (MASTER_CLK) on PSoC 3/PSoC
5/PSoC 5LP devices and HFCLK on PSoC 4 devices.
Clock Connectivity
The PSoC architecture includes flexible clock generation logic. Refer to the Technical Reference Manual
for a detailed description of all the clocking sources available in a particular device. The usage of these
various clocking sources can be categorized by how those clocks are connected to elements of a design.
System Clock
This is a special clock. It is closely related to Master Clock. For most designs, Master Clock and System
Clock will be the same frequency and considered to be the same clock. These must be the highest speed
clocks in the system. The CPU will be running off of System Clock and all the peripherals will
communicate to the CPU and DMA using System Clock. When a clock is synchronized, it is synchronized
to Master Clock. When a pin is synchronized it is synchronized to System Clock.
Global Clock
This is a clock that is placed on one of the global low skew digital clock lines. This also includes System
Clock. When a clock is created using a Clock component, it will be created as a global clock. This clock
must be directly connected to a clock input or may be inverted before connection to a clock input. Global
clock lines connect only to the clock input of the digital elements in PSoC. If a global clock line is
connected to something other than a clock input (that is, combinatorial logic or a pin), then the signal is
not sent using low skew clock lines.
Routed Clock
Any clock that is not a global clock is a routed clock. This includes clocks generated by logic (with the
exception of a single inverter) and clocks that come in from a pin.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
11
Clocking
Clock Synchronization
Each clock in a PSoC device is either synchronous or asynchronous. This is in reference to System Clock
and Master Clock. PSoC is designed to operate as a synchronous system. This was done to enable
communication between the programmable logic and either the CPU or DMA. If these are not
synchronous to a common clock, then any communication requires clocking crossing circuitry. Generally,
asynchronous clocking is not supported except for PLD logic that does not interact with the CPU system.
Synchronous Clock (PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP)
Examples of synchronous clocks include:

Global clock with sync to Master Clock option set. This option is set by default on the Advanced
tab of the Clock component Configure dialog.

Clock from an input pin with the "Input Synchronized" option selected. This option is set by default
on the Input tab of the Pins component Configure dialog.

Clock derived combinatorially from signals that were all generated from registers that are clocked
by synchronous clocks.
Asynchronous Clock (PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP)
An asynchronous clock is any clock that is not synchronous. Some examples are:

Any signal coming in from the Digital System Interconnect (DSI) other than a synchronized pin.
These signals must be considered asynchronous because their timing is not guaranteed. This
includes:

What would normally be a global clock (if connected directly to a clock input) that is fed
through logic before being used as a clock

Fixed function block outputs (that is, Counter, Timer, PWM)

Digital signals from the analog blocks

Global clock without the sync option set

Clock from an input pin with Input Synchronized not selected

Clock that is combinatorially created using any asynchronous signal
Making Signals Synchronous (PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP)
Depending on the source of the clock signal, it can be made synchronous using different methods:

An asynchronous global clock can be made synchronous by checking the Sync with
MASTER_CLK option in the Clock component Configure dialog (this is the default selection).

A routed clock coming from a pin can be made synchronous by checking the Input
Synchronized option in the Pins component Configure dialog (this is the default selection, under
the Pins tab).

Any signal can be made synchronous by using the Sync component and a synchronous clock as
the clock signal.
When synchronizing a signal:

The synchronizing clock must be at least 2x the frequency of the signal being synchronized. If this
rule is violated, then incoming clock edges can be missed and therefore not reflected in the
resulting synchronized clock.

The clock signal output will have all its transitions on the rising edge of the synchronizing clock.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
12
Clocking

The clock signal output will have its edges moved from their original timing.

The clock signal output will have variation in the high and low pulse widths unless the incoming
clock and the synchronizing clock are directly related to each other.
The following example shows two clocks that have been synchronized to System Clock. Clock_1 has
exactly 2x the period of System Clock. Clock_2 has a period of approximately 3x the period of System
Clock. That results in the high and low pulse widths varying between 1 and 2 System Clock periods. In
both cases all transitions occur at the rising edge of System Clock.
System Clock
Clock_1
Clock_2
Routed Clock Implementation
The clocking implementation in PSoC directly connects global clock signals to the clock input of clocked
digital logic. This applies to both synchronous and asynchronous clocks. Since global clocks are
distributed on low skew clock lines, all clocked elements connected to the same global clock will be
clocked at the same time.
Routed clocks are distributed using the general digital routing fabric. This results in the clock arriving at
each destination at different times. If that clock signal was used directly as the clock, then it would force
the clock to be considered an asynchronous clock. This is because it cannot be guaranteed to transition
at the rising edge of System Clock. This can also result in circuit failures if the output of a register clocked
by an early arriving clock is used by a register clocked by a late arriving version of the same clock.
Under some circumstances, PSoC Creator can transform a routed clock circuit into a circuit that uses a
global clock. If all the sources of a routed clock can be traced back to the output of registers that are
clocked by common global clocks, then the circuit is transformed automatically by PSoC Creator. The
cases where this is possible are:

All signals are derived from the same global clock. This global clock can be asynchronous or
synchronous.

All signals are derived from more than one synchronous global clock. In this case, the common
global clock is System Clock.
The clocking implementation in PSoC includes a built-in edge detection circuit that is used in this
transformation. This does not use PLD resources to implement. The following shows the logical
implementation and the resulting clock timing diagram.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
13
Clocking
This diagram shows that the resulting clock occurs synchronous to the global clock on the first clock after
a rising edge of the routed clock.
When analyzing the design to determine the source of a routed clock, another routed clock that was
transformed may be encountered. In that case, the global clock used in that transformation is considered
the source clock for that signal.
The clock transformation used for every routed clock is reported in the report file. This file is located in the
Workspace Explorer under the Results tab after a successful build. The details are shown under the
"Initial Mapping" heading. Each routed clock will be shown with the "Effective Clock" and the "Enable
Signal". The "Effective Clock" is the global clock that is used and the "Enable Signal" is the routed clock
that is edge detected and used as the enable for that clock.
Example with a Divided Clock
A simple divided clock circuit can be used to observe how this transformation is done. The following circuit
clocks the first flip-flop (cydff_1) with a global clock. This generates a clock that is divided by 2 in
frequency. That signal is used as a routed clock that clocks the next flip-flop (cydff_2).
The report file indicates that one global clock has been used and that the single routed clock has been
transformed using the global clock as the effective clock.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
14
Clocking
The resulting signals generated by this circuit are as follows.
It may appear that the Div4 signal is generated by the falling edge of the Div2 signal. This is not the case.
The Div4 signal is generated on the first Clock_1 rising edge following a rising edge on Div2.
Example with a Clock from a Pin
In the following circuit, a clock is brought in on a pin with synchronization turned on. Since
synchronization of pins is done with System Clock, the transformed circuit uses System Clock as the
Effective Clock and uses the rising edge of the pin as the Enable Signal.
If input synchronization was not enabled at the pin, there would not be a global clock to use to transform
the routed clock, and the routed clock would be used directly.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
15
Clocking
Example with Multiple Clock Sources
In this example, the routed clock is derived from flip-flops that are clocked by two different clocks. Both of
these clocks are synchronous, so System Clock is the common global clock that becomes the Effective
Clock.
If either of these clocks had been asynchronous, then the routed clock would have been used directly.
Overriding Routed Clock Transformations
The automatic transformation that PSoC Creator performs on routed clocks is generally the
implementation that should be used. There is however a method to force the routed clock to be used
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
16
Clocking
directly. The UDBClkEn component configured in Async mode will force the clock used to be the routed
clock, as shown in the following circuit.
Using Asynchronous Clocks
Asynchronous clocks can be used with PLD logic. However, they are not automatically supported by
control registers, status registers and datapath elements because of the interaction with the CPU those
elements have. Most Cypress library components will only work with synchronous clocks. They
specifically force the insertion of a synchronizer automatically if the clock provided is asynchronous.
Components that are designed to work with asynchronous clocks such as the SPI Slave will specifically
describe how they handle clocking in their datasheet.
If an asynchronous clock is connected directly to something other than PLD logic, then a Design Rule
Check (DRC) error is generated. For example, if an asynchronous pin is connected to a control register
clock, a DRC error is generated.
As stated in the error message, the error can be removed by using a UDBClkEn component in async
mode. That won’t remove the underlying synchronization issue, but it will allow the design to override the
error if the design has handled synchronization in some other way.
Clock Crossing
Multiple clock domains are commonly needed in a design. Often these multiple domains do not interact
and therefore clocking crossings do not occur. In the case where signals generated in one clock domain
need to be used in another clock domain, special care must be taken. There is the case where the two
clock domains are asynchronous from each other and the case where both clock domains are
synchronous to System Clock.
When both clocks are synchronous to System Clock, signals from the slower clock domain can be freely
used in the other clock domain. In the other direction, care must be taken that the signals from the faster
clock domain are active for a long enough period that they will be sampled by the slower clock domain. In
both directions the timing constraints that must be met are based on the speed of System Clock not the
speed of either of the clock domains.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
17
Clocking
The only guarantee between the clock domains is that their edges will always occur on a rising edge of
System Clock. That means that the rising edges of the two clock domains can be as close as a single
System Clock cycle apart. This is true even when the clock domains are multiples of each other, since
their clock dividers are not necessarily aligned. If combinatorial logic exists between the two clock
domains, a flip-flop may need to be inserted to keep from limiting the frequency of System Clock
operation. By inserting the flip-flop, the crossing from one clock domain to the other is a direct flip-flop to
flip-flop path.
When the clock domains are unrelated to each other, a synchronizer must be used between the clock
domains. The Sync component can be used to implement the synchronization function. It should be
clocked by the destination clock domain.
The Sync component is implemented using a special mode of the status register that implements a
double synchronizer. The input signal must have a pulse width of at least the period of the sampling clock.
The exact delay to go through the synchronizer will vary depending on the alignment of the incoming
signal to the synchronizing clock. This can vary from just over one clock period to just over two clock
periods. If multiple signals are being synchronized, the time difference between two signals entering the
synchronizer and those same two signals at the output can change by as much as one clock period,
depending on when each is successfully sampled by the synchronizer.
Gated Clocks
Global clocks should not be used for anything other than directly clocking a circuit. If a global clock is
used for logic functionality, the signal is routed using an entirely different path without guaranteed timing.
A circuit such as the following should be avoided since timing analysis cannot be performed.
This circuit is implemented with a routed clock, has no timing analysis support, and is prone to the
generation of glitches on the clock signal when the clock is enabled and disabled.
The following circuit implements the equivalent function and is supported by timing analysis, only uses
global clocks, and has no reliability issues. This circuit does not gate the clock, but instead logically
enables the clocking of new data or maintains the current data.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
18
Clocking
If access to a clock is needed, for example to generate a clock to send to a pin, then a 2x clock should be
used to clock a toggle flip-flop. The output of that flip-flop can then be used with the associated timing
analysis available.
Fixed-Function Clocking
On the schematic, the clock signals sent to fixed-function peripherals and to UDB-based peripherals
appear to be the same clock. However, the timing relationship between the clock signals as they arrive at
these different peripheral types is not guaranteed. Additionally the routing delay for the data signals is not
guaranteed. Therefore when fixed-function peripherals are connected to signals in the UDB array, the
signals must be synchronized as shown in the following example. No timing assumptions should be made
about signals coming from fixed-function peripherals.
Cache Configuration
If the CPU clock frequency increases during device operation, the number of clock cycles cache will wait
before sampling data coming back from Flash should be adjusted. If the CPU clock frequency decreases,
the number of clock cycles can be also adjusted to improve CPU performance. See
"CyFlash_SetWaitCycles()" for PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP and “CySysFlashSetWaitCycles()” for PSoC 4
for more information.

of the SC-blocks require a boost clock input in order to keep performance within specification. Between
2.7 V and 4.0 V, the boost is optional and may improve performance. Above 4.0 V, the boost must not be
used.
In previous releases of PSoC Creator, an analog clock resource was silently reserved for every
component instance of the requiring the boost (TIA, Mixer, PGA, and PGA_Inv). This means that analog
designs would prematurely exhaust available resources when Vdda was low. This feature is implemented
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A

Clocking
to automatically share the design-wide analog clock resource and provide the ability to control analog
pumps and boost clock for all utilized SC-blocks during run-time using the CySetScPumps() function.
Components that are implemented in SC-blocks (TIA, Mixer, PGA, and PGA_Inv) will be initialized based
on Vdda and Variable Vdda design-time options. The CySetScPumps() function can be used to
enable/disable positive pumps and boost clock at run-time if operating voltage (Vdda) drops below the
2.7 V level. It is the user's responsibility to monitor the Vdda level.
When the operating voltage (Vdda) of a PSoC 3/PSoC 5LP device drops below 4.0 V, the analog pumps
for the analog routing switches must be enabled by calling the SetAnalogRoutingPumps() function with
the corresponding parameter. When Vdda rises above 4.0 V, the analog pumps for the analog routing
switches must be disabled. It is the user's responsibility to monitor the Vdda level at run-time. The analog
pumps for the analog routing switches are configured on device startup based on the Vdda and Variable
Vdda design-time options.
A “Variable Vdda” option in the System tab of the PSoC Creator Design-Wide Resources (DWR) file is
added to allow the creation of a design-wide analog clock resource (ScBoostClk) that will be used as a
boost clock source for analog blocks.
The dependency between Vdda and Variable Vdda values configured in the System tab of the PSoC
Creator Design-Wide Resources (DWR) file is explained in the following table.

clocks.

Power Management
There is a full range of power modes supported by PSoC devices to control power consumption and the
amount of available resources.
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP devices support the following power modes (in order of high to low power
consumption): Active, Alternate Active, Sleep, and Hibernate.
PSoC 4 devices support the following power modes (in order of high to low power consumption): Active,
Sleep, Deep Sleep, Hibernate, and Stop. Active, Sleep and Deep-Sleep are standard ARM defined power
modes, supported by the ARM CPUs. Hibernate/Stop are even lower power modes that are entered from
firmware just like Deep-Sleep, but on wakeup the CPU (and all peripherals) goes through a full reset.
For the ARM-based devices (PSoC 4/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP), an interrupt is required for the CPU to wake
up. The Power Management implementation assumes that wakeup time is configured with a separate
component (component-based wakeup time configuration) for an interrupt to be issued on terminal count.
For more information, refer to the "Wakeup Time Configuration" section.
All pending interrupts should be cleared before the device is put into low power mode, even if they are
masked.
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP Implementation
Low Power Usage
PSoC 5 devices will not go into low power modes while the debugger is running.
For PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP devices, the power manager will not put the device into a low power state
if the system performance controller (SPC) is executing a command. The device will go into low power
mode after the SPC completes command execution.
Clock Configuration
There are a few device configuration requirements for proper low power mode entry and wakeup.

The clock system should be prepared before entering Sleep and Hibernate mode to ensure that it
will switch between Active modes and low power modes as expected.

The CyPmSaveClocks() and CyPmRestoreClocks() functions are responsible for preparing clock
configuration before entering low power mode and after waking up to Active mode, respectively.
In general, CyPmSaveClocks() saves the configuration and sets the requirements for low power
mode entry. CyPmRestoreClocks() restores the clock configuration to its original state.

The IMO is required to be the source for the Master clock. So, the IMO clock value is set
corresponding to the "Enable Fast IMO During Startup" option on the Design-Wide Resources
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A

Power Management
System Editor. If this option is enabled, the IMO clock frequency is set to 48 MHz; otherwise, is
set to 12 MHz.
Note The IMO clock frequency is always set to 12 MHz on PSoC 5 devices. The PLL and MHz
ECO are turned off when the Master clock is sourced by IMO.
The IMO value must be 12 MHz just before entering Sleep and Hibernate modes. The IMO
frequency is set to 12 MHz by CyPmSleep()/CyPmHibernate() just before entering the specified
low power mode (without correcting the number of wait cycles for the flash). The IMO frequency
is restored immediately on wakeup.

The Bus and Master clock dividers are set to a divide-by-one value and the new value of flash
wait cycles is set to match the new value of the CPU frequency. Refer to the description of the
CyFlash_SetWaitCycles() function for more information.
The 1 KHz ILO must be enabled (it is always enabled by default, regardless of the selection in the Clock
Editor) for all devices for correct operation in Sleep and Hibernate low power modes. It is used to
measure the Hibernate/Sleep regulator settling time after a reset. During this time, the system ignores
requests to enter these modes. The hold-off delay is measured using rising edges of the 1 kHz ILO. The
terminal count is set by the Sleep Regulator Trim Register (PWRSYS_SLP_TR). Caution Do not modify
this register. Refer to the corresponding device Registers TRM for more information.
Calling the CyPmSaveClocks() function will modify device clocking configuration. As a result, any
component that relies on clocking should not be used until calling the CyPmRestoreClocks() function,
which will restore the original clocking configuration. For information on component clocking
requirements, refer to the corresponding component datasheet.
Wakeup Time Configuration
There are three timers that can wake up a device from low power mode: CTW, FTW, and one pulse per
second (One PPS). Refer to the device TRM and datasheet for more information on these timers.
There are two ways of configuring wakeup time:

Parameter-based wakeup time configuration is done by calling the CyPmSleep() and
CyPmAltAct() functions with desired parameters. This configuration method is available only for
the PSoC 3 devices.

Component-based wakeup time configuration. The CTW wakeup interval is configured with the
Sleep Timer component. The one second interval is configured with the RTC component.
There is no wakeup time configuration available for the Hibernate mode.
It is important to keep in mind that it is only guaranteed that the first CTW and FTW intervals will be less
than specified. To make subsequent intervals to have nominal values, the corresponding timer is enabled
by the CyPmSleep() and CyPmAltAct() functions, and the timer left enabled. Note that some APIs can
also use this timer. This can cause the timer to always be enabled (the timer interval can be changed only
if the corresponding timer is disabled) before low power mode entry and hence the wakeup interval will
always be less than expected.
The CyPmReadStatus() function must be called just after wakeup with a corresponding parameter (for
example, with CY_PM_CTW_INT if the device is configured to wake up on CTW) to clear interrupt status
bits.
When CTW is used as a wakeup timer, the CyPmReadStatus() function must always be called (when
wakeup is configured in a parameter or component based method) after wakeup to clear the CTW
interrupt status bit. It is required for this function to be called within 1 ms (1 clock cycle of the ILO) after
the CTW event occurred.

Power Management
Wakeup Source Configuration
You can configure which wakeup source may wake up the device from Alternate Active and Sleep low
power modes. The source is not configured to wake up the device; it just allows doing that. The
component associated with the wakeup source has to be properly configured to act as a wakeup source.
For PSoC 5 and PSoC 5LP devices, the interrupts associated with wakeup sources must also be enabled
to also wake up the CPU.
PSoC 3 Alternate Active Mode Specific Issues

Any interrupt, whether it is enabled at the interrupt controller or not, will wake the device from
Alternate Active power mode.

The edge detector is also bypassed, so the wakeup source is always level triggered.

Directly connected DMA interrupts will not wake from this mode. They must be routed through the
DSI in order to generate a wakeup condition.
PSoC 5 Specific Issues
For PSoC 5, the wakeup source is not selectable for all low power modes. In this case, the wakeup
source argument is ignored and any of the available wakeup sources will wake the device.
For PSoC 5, the CTW is the only supported wakeup source from sleep. All wakeup sources are supported
on PSoC 5LP.
PSoC 5LP Specific Issues
For PSoC 5LP, the wakeup source is available for Sleep mode and is not available for Alternate Active
mode. In the case of Alternate Active mode, the wakeup source argument is ignored and any of the
available sources will wake the device.
For PSoC 5LP, the interrupt component connected to the wakeup source may not use the
"RISING_EDGE" detect option. Use the "LEVEL" option instead.

void CyPmSaveClocks()
Description: This function is called in preparation for entering sleep or hibernate low power
modes. Saves all state of the clocking system that doesn’t persist during
sleep/hibernate or that needs to be altered in preparation for sleep/hibernate.
Shuts down all the digital and analog clock dividers for the active power mode
configuration.
Switches the master clock over to the IMO and shuts down the PLL and MHz
Crystal. The IMO frequency is set to either 12 MHz or 48 MHz to match the
Design-Wide Resources System Editor "Enable Fast IMO During Startup" setting.
The ILO and 32 KHz oscillators are not impacted. The current Flash wait state
setting is saved and the Flash wait state setting is set for the current IMO speed.
Note If the Master Clock source is routed through the DSI inputs, then it must be
set manually to another source before using the CyPmSaveClocks() /
CyPmRestoreClocks() functions.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects and All peripheral clocks will be off after this API method call.
Restrictions:
void CyPmRestoreClocks()
Description: Restores any state that was preserved by the last call to CyPmSaveClocks. The
Flash wait state setting is also restored.
Note If the Master Clock source is routed through the DSI inputs, then it must be
set manually to another source before using the CyPmSaveClocks() /
CyPmRestoreClocks() functions.
The merge region could be used to process state when the megahertz crystal is
not ready after the hold-off timeout.
PSoC 5: The megahertz crystal is given up to 130 ms to stabilize. Its readiness is
not verified after the hold-off timeout. This does not refer to PSoC 5LP devices.

Power Management
void CyPmAltAct(uint16 wakeupTime, uint16 wakeupSource)
Description: Puts the part into the Alternate Active (Standby) state. The Alternate Active state
can allow for any of the capabilities of the device to be active, but the operation of
this function is dependent on the CPU being disabled during the Alternate Active
state. The configuration code and the component APIs will configure the template
for the Alternate Active state to be the same as the Active state with the exception
that the CPU will be disabled during Alternate Active.
Note Before calling this function, you must manually configure the power mode of
the source clocks for the timer that is used as the wakeup timer.
PSoC 3: Before switching to Alternate Active, if a wakeupTime other than NONE
is specified, then the appropriate timer state is configured as specified with the
interrupt for that timer disabled. The wakeup source will be the combination of the
values specified in the wakeupSource and any timer specified in the wakeupTime
argument. Once the wakeup condition is satisfied, then all saved state is restored
and the function returns in the Active state.
Note If the wakeupTime is made with a different value, the period before the
wakeup occurs can be significantly shorter than the specified time. If the next call
is made with the same wakeupTime value, then the wakeup will occur the
specified period after the previous wakeup occurred.
If a wakeupTime other than NONE is specified, then upon exit the state of the
specified timer will be left as specified by wakeupTime with the timer enabled and
the interrupt disabled. If the CTW, FTW or One PPS is already configured for
wakeup, for example with the Sleep Timer or RTC components, then specify
NONE for the wakeupTime and include the appropriate source for wakeupSource.
PSoC 5 and PSoC 5LP: Neither parameter is used. That means NONE should be
passed for the parameters. The device will go into Alternate Active mode until an
enabled interrupt occurs.
Parameters: wakeupTime: Specifies a timer wakeup source and the frequency of that source.
For PSoC 5 and PSoC 5LP this parameter is ignored.

void CyPmSleep(uint8 wakeupTime, uint16 wakeupSource)
Description: Puts the part into the Sleep state.
Note Before calling this function, you must manually configure the power mode of
the source clocks for the timer that is used as wakeup timer.
Note Before calling this function, you must prepare clock tree configuration for the
low power mode by calling CyPmSaveClocks(). And restore clock configuration
after CyPmSleep() execution by calling CyPmRestoreClocks(). See Power
Management section, Clock Configuration subsection of the System Reference
Guide for more information.
PSoC 3: Before switching to Sleep, if a wakeupTime other than NONE is specified, then
the appropriate timer state is configured as specified with the interrupt for that
timer disabled. The wakeup source will be the combination of the values specified
in the wakeupSource and any timer specified in the wakeupTime argument. Once
the wakeup condition is satisfied, then all saved state is restored and the function
returns in the Active state.
Note If the wakeupTime value is different from the previous value, the period
before the wakeup occurs can be significantly shorter than the specified time. If
the next call is made with the same wakeupTime value, then the wakeup will
occur with the specified period after the previous wakeup occurred.
If a wakeupTime other than NONE is specified, then upon exit the state of the
specified timer will be left as specified by wakeupTime with the timer enabled and
the interrupt disabled. If the CTW or One PPS is already configured for wakeup,
for example with the Sleep Timer or RTC components, then specify NONE for the
wakeupTime and include the appropriate source for wakeupSource.
PSoC 5: Neither parameter to this function is used for PSoC 5. That means NONE should
be passed for the parameters. The device will go into Sleep mode until it is woken
by an interrupt from the CTW. The CTW must already be configured to generate
an interrupt. It is configured using the Sleep Timer component. Only the CTW can
be used to wake the device from sleep mode. This function automatically disables
other interrupt sources and then restores them after the device is woken by the
CTW.
The duration of sleep needs to be controlled so that the device doesn't wake up
too soon after going to sleep or remain asleep for too long. Reliable sleep times of
between 1 ms and 128 ms can be supported. This requirement is satisfied with
CTW settings of 4, 8, 16, 32, 128 or 256 ms. To control the sleep time the CTW is
reset automatically just before putting the device to sleep. The resulting wakeup
time is half the duration programmed into the CTW with an uncertainty of 1 ms
due to the arrival time of the first ILO clock edge. For example, the setting of 4 ms
will result in a sleep time between 1 ms and 2 ms.
PSoC 5LP: The wakeupTime parameter is not used and the only NONE can be specified. The
wakeup time must be configured with the component, Sleep Timer for CTW
intervals and RTC for 1PPS interval. The component must be configured to
generate an interrupt.

The 1 kHz ILO clock is expected to be enabled for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP to
measure Hibernate/Sleep regulator settling time after a reset. The hold-off delay
is measured using rising edges of the 1 kHz ILO.
For PSoC 3 silicon, hardware buzz should be disabled before entering sleep
power mode. It is disabled by PSoC Creator during startup. If a LVI, HVI, or
Brown Out detect (power supply supervising capabilities) are required in a design
during sleep, use the CTW to periodically wake the device, perform software
buzz, and refresh the supervisory services. If LVI, HVI, or Brown Out is not
required, then the use of the CTW is not required. Refer to the device errata for
more information.
void CyPmHibernate()
Description: Puts the part into the Hibernate state.
Before switching to Hibernate, the current status of the PICU wakeup source bit is
saved and then set. This configures the device to wake up from the PICU. Make
sure you have at least one pin configured to generate a PICU interrupt. For pin
Px.y, the register "PICU_INTTYPE_PICUx_INTTYPEy" controls the PICU
behavior. In the TRM, this register is "PICU[0..15]_INTTYPE[0..7]." In the Pins
component datasheet, this register is referred to as the IRQ option. Once the
wakeup occurs, the PICU wakeup source bit is restored and the PSoC returns to
the Active state.
PSoC 5: The only method supported for waking up from the Hibernate state is a
hardware reset of the device. PICU interrupt sources are automatically disabled
by this function before putting the device into the Hibernate state.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects and Applications must wait 20 µs before re-entering hibernate or sleep after waking
Restrictions: up from hibernate. The 20 µs allows the sleep regulator time to stabilize before
the next hibernate / sleep event occurs. The 20 µs requirement begins when the
device wakes up. There is no hardware check that this requirement is met. The
specified delay should be done on ISR entry.
After wakeup PICU interrupt occurs, the Pin_ClearInterrupt() function (where
"Pin" is the instance name of the Pins component) must be called to clear the
latched pin events. This allows proper Hibernate mode entry and enables
detection of future events.
The 1 kHz ILO clock is expected to be enabled for PSoC 3 and PSoC 5LP to
measure Hibernate/Sleep regulator settling time after a reset. The hold-off delay
is measured using rising edges of the 1 kHz ILO.

preserving the other bits, this function uses a shadow register that retains the
state. This function reads the status register and ORs that value with the shadow
register. That is the value that is returned. Then the bits in the mask that are set
are cleared from this value and written back to the shadow register.

The software should set EXT_VCCD bit in the PWR_CONTROL register when Vccd is shorted to Vddd
on the board. This impacts the chip internal state transitions where it is necessary to know whether Vccd
is connected or floating to achieve minimum current in low power modes.
Note Setting this bit turns off the active regulator and will lead to a system reset unless both Vddd and
Vccd pins are supplied externally. Refer to the device TRM for more information.

PWR_CONTROL.LPM_READY = 0), then the device will go into Sleep mode
instead and automatically enter the originally intended mode when the holdoff

only.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects and It is expected that the firmware has already frozen the IO-Cells using
Restrictions: CySysPmFreezeIo() function before the call to this function. If this is omitted the
IO-cells will be frozen in the same way as they are in the Active to Deep Sleep
transition, but will lose their state on wake up (because of the reset occurring at
that time).
Because all CPU state is lost, the CPU will start up at the reset vector. To save
firmware state through Hibernate low power mode, corresponding variable should
be defined with CY_NOINIT attribute. It prevents data from being initialized to zero
on startup. The interrupt cause of the hibernate peripheral is retained, such that it
can be either read by the firmware or cause an interrupt after the firmware has
booted and enabled the corresponding interrupt. To distinguish the wakeup from
the Hibernate mode and the general Reset event, the CySysPmGetResetReason()
function could be used.

void CySysPmStop(void)
Description: Puts the part into the Stop state. All internal supplies are off; no state is retained.
Wakeup from Stop is performed by toggling the wakeup pin (P0.7), causing a
normal Boot procedure to occur. To configure the wakeup pin, the Digital Input Pin
component should be placed on the schematic, assigned to the P0.7, and
resistively pulled up or down to the inverse state of the wakeup polarity. To
distinguish the wakeup from the Stop mode and the general Reset event,
CySysPmGetResetReason() function could be used. The wakeup pin is active low
by default. The wakeup pin polarity could be changed with the
CySysPmSetWakeupPolarity() function.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects and This function freezes IO cells implicitly. It is not possible to enter STOP mode
Restrictions: before freezing the IO cells. The IO cells remain frozen after awake from the Stop

into its low power state. These functions are listed below generically. Refer to the individual datasheet for
specific information regarding register retention information if applicable.
void `=instance_name`_Sleep (void)
Description: The _Sleep() function checks to see if the component is enabled and saves that
state. Then it calls the _Stop() function and calls _SaveConfig() function to save the
user configuration.
 PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP: Call the _Sleep() function before calling the
CyPmSleep() or the CyPmHibernate() function.
 PSoC 4: Call the _Sleep() function before calling the CySysPmDeepSleep()
function.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects: None
void `=instance_name`_Wakeup (void)
Description: The _Wakeup() function calls the _RestoreConfig() function to restore the user

called, the _Wakeup() function will re-enable the component.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects: Calling the _Wakeup() function without first calling the _Sleep() or _SaveConfig()
function may produce unexpected behavior.
void `=instance_name`_SaveConfig(void)
Description: This function saves the component configuration. This will save non-retention
registers. This function will also save the current component parameter values, as
defined in the Configure dialog or as modified by appropriate APIs. This function is
called by the _Sleep() function.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
Side Effects: None
void `=instance_name`_RestoreConfig(void)

Interrupts
The APIs in this chapter apply to all architectures except as noted. Refer also to the Interrupt component
datasheet for more information about interrupts.
Note For PSoC 3, Keil C compiler run-time libraries do not disable interrupts. The only exception is found
in the C51 run-time library when using large reentrant functions. Interrupts are disabled for 4 CPU
instructions (8 CPU cycles) to adjust the large reentrant stack.

Pins
In addition to the functionality provided for pins as part of the Pins component, a library of pin macros is
provided in the cypins.h file for the PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP devices. There is no library of pin macros
available for the PSoC 4 devices. These macros all make use of the port pin configuration register that is
available for every pin on the PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP device. The address of that register is provided
in the cydevice_trm.h file. Each of these pin configuration registers is named:
CYREG_PRTx_PCy
where x is the port number and y is the pin number within the port.
For PSoC 4, there are status registers, data output registers, and port configuration registers only, so the
macro takes two arguments: port register and pin number. Each port has these registers addresses
defined:
CYREG_PRTx_DR
CYREG_PRTx_PS
CYREG_PRTx_PC
The x is the port number, and the second argument is the pin number.

Register Access
A library of macros provides read and write access to the registers of the device. These macros are used
with the defined values made available in the generated cydevice_trm.h and cyfitter.h files. Access to
registers should be made using these macros and not the functions that are used to implement the
macros. This allows for device independent code generation.
PSoC 3 is an 8-bit architecture, so the processor does not have endianness. However, the compiler for an
8-bit architecture will implement endianness. For PSoC 3, the Keil compiler implements a big endian
(MSB in lowest address) ordering. The PSoC 4/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP processor architectures use little
endian ordering.
SRAM and Flash storage in all architectures is done using the endianness of the architecture and
compilers. However, the registers in all these chips are laid out in little endian order. These macros allow
register accesses to match this little endian ordering. If you perform operations on multi-byte registers
without using these macros, you must consider the byte ordering of the specific architecture. Examples
include usage of DMA to transfer between memory and registers, as well as function calls that are passed
an array of bytes in memory.
The PSoC 3 is an 8-bit processor, so all accesses will be done a byte at a time. The PSoC 5 / PSoC 5LP
will perform accesses using the appropriate 8-, 16- and 32-bit accesses. The PSoC 4 requires these
accesses to be aligned to the width of the transaction.

DMA
The DMA files provide the API functions for the DMA controller, DMA channels and Transfer Descriptors.
This API is the library version, not the code that is generated when the user places a DMA component on
the schematic. The automatically generated code would use the APIs in this module.
Refer to the DMA component datasheet for more information.
Note The linked list of all the Transfer Descriptors to be allocated is created (by CyDmacConfigure()
function call from the startup code) only if a DMA component is placed onto the schematic.

Flash and EEPROM
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP Implementation
Memory Architecture
Flash memory in PSoC devices provides nonvolatile storage for user firmware, user configuration data,
bulk data storage, and optional ECC data. PSoC EEPROM memory is a byte-addressable nonvolatile
memory. See the device datasheet and TRM for more information.
Flash is organized as a set of arrays. Each array consists of 64, 128, or 256 rows. The PSoC 3
architecture has one Flash array, the size of which is 16 KB, 32 KB, or 64 KB plus ECC bytes. Therefore,
the only valid array ID for Flash is 0. The PSoC 5 architecture has either one array of 128 or 256 rows, or
multiple arrays of 256 rows each. The following table provides Flash/EEPROM definitions that can be
used for device-specific numbers. The number of rows in an array can be determined by dividing the size
of the array by the size of the row. Each row contains 256 data bytes plus 32 bytes for either error
correction code (ECC) (Enable ECC option in the design-wide resources System Editor) or data storage
(when ECC is disabled. The device configuration data or user data can be stored there based on Store
Configuration Data in ECC Memory option).
An EEPROM is also organized as a set of arrays. Both PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 architectures have one
EEPROM array, the size of which is 512 bytes, 1 KB, or 2 KB. The array consists of 32, 64, or 128 rows,
depending on the device. Each row contains 16 bytes of data.
The Flash and EEPROM API provide following device-specific definitions:

Flash and EEPROM
ECC
You can enable ECC for high reliability applications. ECC can correct one bit error and detect multiple bit
errors per 8 bytes. For more information on using ECC, refer to the Flash Program Memory chapter of the
TRM.
PSoC 5 devices do not provide error detection/correction functions for the Flash, but ECC flash space
can be used for data storage. When ECC is used for data storage, device configuration or user data is
stored there. The most common usage in this case is to store configuration data, which is directly
supported by PSoC Creator.
When programming Flash with error detection/correction function disabled (ECC flash space is used for
data storage), there are multiple methods for writing a row of data:

the entire row including ECC

the entire row without ECC

just the ECC memory.
Working with Flash and EEPROM
Flash and EEPROM are programmed through the system performance controller (SPC). To interface with
the SPC, information is pushed into, and pulled from, a single register. The Flash/EEPROM specific APIs
simplify interacting with the SPC by abstracting the details away.
Both Flash and EEPROM are mapped into memory space and can be read directly. To get the address of
the first Flash / EEPROM row in a specified array ID, the array ID should be multiplied by array size, and
added to Flash / EEPROM base address. To access any row in the same array ID, the size of the row
should be multiplied by the desired row number and added to the first row address of the specified array.
You must acquire the temperature at least once to use Flash and EEPROM write functions. If the
application will be used in an environment where the die temperature changes 10 °C or more, the
temperature should be refreshed to adjust the write times to the Flash for optimal performance. The die
temperature is obtained by calling the CySetTemp() function. This function queries SPC for the die
temperature and stores it in a global variable, which is used while performing Flash and EEPROM write
operations.
If the Enable ECC option is disabled, you also need to allocate the buffer and pass it into the
CySetFlashEEBuffer() function. This buffer is used to store intermediate data while communicating with
the SPC. For more information on the buffer allocation, refer to the CySetFlashEEBuffer() function
description in the APIs section of this chapter.
Flash or EEPROM can be written by one row at a time by calling the CyWriteRowData() function. The first
parameter determines the flash or EEPROM array. The number of arrays that are flash and the number of
arrays that are EEPROM are specific to the exact device selected. Refer to device TRM to determine
which array IDs are valid. The flash row numbering starts from 0 for each array ID.

10 Bootloader Migration
This chapter covers information about the bootloader architecture introduced with PSoC Creator 2.1, as
well as various known issues that you may encounter when migrating designs with the bootloader system
from PSoC Creator 2.0 or earlier.
Introduction
Beginning with PSoC Creator 2.1, the bootloader system has been reorganized to provide more
configuration options. In previous releases, the bootloader system was part of the cy_boot component (a
required component that is automatically and invisibly instantiated in all designs). The bootloader system
now includes two independent Bootloader and Bootloadable components. You can find the components in
the PSoC Creator Component Catalog, and they include component datasheets like all other
components.
Also, the bootloader system configuration options have been moved from the PSoC Creator Design-Wide
Resources (DWR) file into the corresponding Bootloader and Bootloadable component configuration
dialogs. See Migrating Bootloader Designs and Migrating Bootloadable Designs sections in this chapter
for more details.
The switch to the new bootloader system is performed automatically by updating the cy_boot component
to version 3.0 or above. However, some changes may impact your existing bootloader and bootloadable
designs. This will require maintenance when moving to the new bootloader system architecture. The
bootloader system configuration settings must be moved manually.
The three key migration alternatives include:

Complete Migration to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later

Migrating to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later without cy_boot Component Update

Migrating to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later for Bootloadable Designs
Complete Migration to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later
In this scenario, PSoC Creator 2.1 or later is used to work with the latest version of the cy_boot
component and new bootloader architecture.
When you open a project that was last saved in a previous PSoC Creator release, you will be prompted to
update components to the latest version.

Use the Component Update Tool and choose the latest version of the cy_boot component. It is
recommended that all components be updated together. Use the “Update All to Latest” button to
ensure the newest versions are selected for update.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
71
Bootloader Migration

Open the bootloader system design and place a Bootloader component onto the schematic for a
Bootloader or Multi-application bootloader application type. Place a Bootloadable component
onto the schematic for a Bootloadable application type. See Project Application Type Property
Changes for more information.

Transfer the bootloader system settings from the DWR file to the component configuration
dialogs. See Migrating Bootloader Designs and Migrating Bootloadable Designs for details.
Migrating to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later without cy_boot Component Update
In this scenario, PSoC Creator 2.1 or later is used to work with the bootloader system design that was
created in previous PSoC Creator releases. No any additional care is required in order to continue
working with the bootloader system.
All the components present on the design schematic can be updated to the latest available versions,
except the cy_boot component. The cy_boot component cannot be updated to the version 3.0 or above
without switching to the new bootloader architecture at the same time.
Note Some of the latest component versions shipped with PSoC Creator 2.1 or later require cy_boot
version 3.0 or above, so you cannot update them without updating cy_boot.
Migrating to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later for Bootloadable Designs Only
In this scenario, only the bootloadable project is migrated to PSoC Creator 2.1 or later and cy_boot 3.0 or
above. Existing bootloader designs are completely compatible with the newly created or migrated
bootloadable designs. PSoC Creator 2.1 or later without an updated cy_boot component or previous
PSoC Creator releases can be used for making changes to the bootloader design.

The following table shows the correlation between the bootloader system in previous PSoC Creator
releases and the bootloader system introduced in PSoC Creator 2.1.

Bootloadable_1_Load() function instead, where Bootloadable_1 is the instance name of the Bootloadable
component.
For more details about the PSoC Creator bootloader system features, refer to the Bootloadable
component datasheet.
Project Application Type Property Changes
In PSoC Creator releases prior to version 2.1, the Application Type option was used to choose the type
of the application that will be produced by a build of a project. Beginning with PSoC Creator 2.1, the
Application Type project property provides a way to verify that the design is created as intended.
The following table correlates the Application Type option value with the placed component
configuration:
Application Type
Expected Component
Bootloader
Bootloader component with Multi-application bootloader option disabled.
Multi App Bootloader
Bootloader component with Multi-application bootloader option enabled.
Bootloadable
Bootloadable component.
The Application Type option is set in the advanced section of the New Project dialog and can be
modified later in the project’s Build Settings window, under the Code Generation section.
Migrating Bootloadable Dependency to Bootloader Design
In PSoC Creator releases prior to version 2.1, the Bootloader tab of the project’s Dependencies window
was used to link the bootloadable project to the bootloader project. With the introduction of the
Bootloadable component in PSoC Creator 2.1 with cy_boot version 3.0 or above, this option was moved
to the Dependencies tab of the Bootloadable component Configure dialog. Refer to the component
datasheet for more information.

11 System Functions
These functions apply to all architectures.
General APIs
uint8 CyEnterCriticalSection(void)
Description: CyEnterCriticalSection disables interrupts and returns a value indicating whether
interrupts were previously enabled (the actual value depends on the device
architecture).
Note Implementation of CyEnterCriticalSection manipulates the IRQ enable bit with
interrupts still enabled. The test and set of the interrupt bits is not atomic; this is true
for all architectures. Therefore, to avoid corrupting the processor state, it must be the
policy that all interrupt routines restore the interrupt enable bits as they were found
on entry.
Parameters: None
Return Value: uint8
PSoC 3 – Returns a value containing two bits:
bit 0: 1 if interrupts were enabled before CyEnterCriticalSection was called.
bit 1: 1 if IRQ generation was disabled before CyEnterCriticalSection was called.
PSoC 4/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP – Returns 0 if interrupts were previously enabled or 1 if
interrupts were previously disabled.
void CyExitCriticalSection(uint8 savedIntrStatus)
Description: CyExitCriticalSection re-enables interrupts if they were enabled before
CyEnterCriticalSection was called. The argument should be the value returned from
CyEnterCriticalSection.
Parameters: uint8 savedIntrStatus: Saved interrupt status returned by the CyEnterCriticalSection
function.
Return Value: None
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
75
System Functions
void CYASSERT(uint32 expr)
Description: Macro that evaluates the expression and if it is false (evaluates to 0) then the
processor is halted. This macro is evaluated unless NDEBUG is defined. If NDEBUG
is defined, then no code is generated for this macro. NDEBUG is defined by default
for a Release build setting and not defined for a Debug build setting.
Parameters: expr: Logical expression. Asserts if false.
Return Value: None
void CyHalt(uint8 reason)
Description: Halts the CPU.
Parameters: reason: Value to be passed for debugging. This value may be useful to know the
reason why CyHalt() was invoked.
Return Value: None
void CySoftwareReset(void)
Description: Forces a software reset of the device.
Parameters: None
Return Value: None
CyDelay APIs
There are four CyDelay APIs that implement simple software-based delay loops. The loops compensate
for bus clock frequency.
The CyDelay functions provide a minimum delay. If the processor is interrupted, the length of the loop will
be extended by as long as it takes to implement the interrupt. Other overhead factors, including function
entry and exit, may also affect the total length of time spent executing the function. This will be especially
apparent when the nominal delay time is small.
void CyDelay(uint32 milliseconds)
Description: Delay by the specified number of milliseconds. By default the number of cycles to
delay is calculated based on the clock configuration entered in PSoC Creator. If
the clock configuration is changed at run-time, then the function CyDelayFreq is
used to indicate the new Bus Clock frequency. CyDelay is used by several
components, so changing the clock frequency without updating the frequency
setting for the delay can cause those components to fail.
Parameters: milliseconds: Number of milliseconds to delay.
Return Value: None
Side Effects and CyDelay has been implemented with the instruction cache assumed enabled.
Restrictions: When instruction cache is disabled on PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP, CyDelay will be two
times larger. For example, with instruction cache disabled CyDelay(100) would
result in about 200 ms delay instead of 100 ms.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
76
System Functions
void CyDelayUs(uint16 microseconds)
Description: Delay by the specified number of microseconds. By default the number of cycles
to delay is calculated based on the clock configuration entered in PSoC Creator.
If the clock configuration is changed at run-time, then the function CyDelayFreq is
used to indicate the new Bus Clock frequency. CyDelayUs is used by several
components, so changing the clock frequency without updating the frequency
setting for the delay can cause those components to fail.
Parameters: microseconds: Number of microseconds to delay.
Return Value: Void
Side Effects and CyDelayUS has been implemented with the instruction cache assumed enabled.
Restrictions: When instruction cache is disabled on PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP, CyDelayUs will be two
times larger. For example, with instruction cache disabled CyDelayUs(100) would
result in about 200 us delay instead of 100 us.
If the bus clock frequency is a small non-integer number, the actual delay can be
up to twice as long as the nominal value. The actual delay cannot be shorter than
the nominal one.
void CyDelayFreq(uint32 freq)
Description: Sets the Bus Clock frequency used to calculate the number of cycles needed to
implement a delay with CyDelay. By default the frequency used is based on the
value determined by PSoC Creator at build time.
Parameters: freq: Bus clock frequency in Hz.
0: Use the default value
non-0: Set frequency value
Return Value: None
void CyDelayCycles(uint32 cycles)
Description: Delay by the specified number of cycles using a software delay loop.
Parameters: cycles: Number of cycles to delay.
Return Value: None
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP Voltage Detect APIs
Voltage monitoring circuits in these devices can be configured to generate an interrupt when Vdda or
Vddd is outside a defined range. Low-voltage interrupts are available for both the analog and digital
supplies, and a high-voltage interrupt is available for the analog supply. The trip levels for the low-voltage
detectors are independently configurable. The trip level for the high-voltage detector is fixed at 5.75 V.
The analog and digital low-voltage monitoring circuits can also be configured to reset the device instead
of generating an interrupt.
Bits [2:0] in the RESET_CR1 register control whether or not the voltage monitoring circuits generate an
interrupt if the supply is outside the trip level. If the LVI interrupts are enabled, then bits [7:6] in
RESET_CR3 control whether or not the device is reset when a low-voltage event occurs. The LVI resets
are part of the precision reset circuit and generate a momentary hardware POR reset.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
77
System Functions
The status of the voltage monitor circuits is stored in two different registers. Bits [2:0] of the RESET_SR0
register are set to 1 if a low-voltage or high-voltage event has occurred. This register is cleared when read
or upon POR reset. Bits [2:0] of the RESET_SR2 register hold the real-time status of the voltage monitor
circuits’ outputs, which means they will only be set to ‘1’ for the duration that the event is occurring.
The GlobalSignalRef component can be used to connect the LVI and HVI interrupt signals to other
components in the project schematic, or an interrupt component if you wish to execute an interrupt on an
LVI/HVI event. If “Low/High Voltage Detect (LVI/HVI)” is selected in the component, the output of
GlobalSignalRef is set to 1 whenever any of the enabled LVI or HVI circuits detect an event. The output
will remain at 1 as long as an LVI or HVI event is occurring. Refer to the GlobalSignalRef component
datasheet for more information.
The following API functions configure and manage the voltage monitoring circuits and associated interrupt
status registers. For more information on the voltage monitoring circuits, refer to the Voltage Monitoring
section of the device TRM and the Power Voltage Level Monitors section of the device datasheet.
Note For PSoC 3 silicon, LVI/HVI must be disabled before entering Sleep mode, as it requires hardware
buzz to be enabled. Hardware buzz must be disabled (it is disabled by PSoC Creator startup code) before
sleep mode as using it in conjunction with other device wakeup sources can cause the device to lock up,
halting further code execution.

System Functions
void CyVdLvDigitEnable(uint8 reset, uint8 threshold)
Description: Enables the output of the digital low-voltage monitor when Vddd is at or below the
trip point, selects whether or not the device generates an interrupt or resets the
part upon the low voltage event, and sets the voltage trip level.
Parameters: reset: Enables device reset on digital LVI interrupt (not available for PSoC 5).

Side Effects and The LVI resets are momentary. When an LVI reset occurs, the RESET_CR1 and
Restrictions RESET_CR3 registers are restored to their default values. This means that the
LVI circuit is no longer enabled and the device exits reset. If the supply is below
the trip level and firmware enables the LVI reset functionality, the device will reset
again. This will continue as long as the supply is below the trip level or as long as
the user enables the reset functionality of the LVI.
When any LVI reset occurs, the RESET_SR0 and RESET_SR2 status registers
are cleared. This means that the Analog LVI, Digital LVI, and Analog HVI status
bits are not persistent across any LVI reset.

Description: Reads and clears the voltage detection status bits in the RESET_SR0 register.
The bits are set to 1 by the voltage monitor circuit when the supply is outside the
detector’s trip point. They stay set to 1 until they are read or a POR / LVI / PRES
reset occurs. This function uses a shadow register, so only the bits passed in the
parameter will be cleared in the shadow register.
Parameters: mask: Bits in the RESET_SR0 shadow register to clear and return.

12 Startup and Linking
The cy_boot component is responsible for the startup of the system. The following functionality has been
implemented:

Provide the reset vector

Setup processor for execution

Setup interrupts

Setup the stack including the reentrant stack for the 8051

Configure the device

Initialize static and global variables with initialization values

Clear all remaining static and global variables

Preserve the reset status

Call main() C entry point
See application note AN60616 for more details on PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 startup.
The device startup procedure configures the device to meet datasheet and PSoC Creator project
specifications. Startup begins after the release of a reset source, or after the end of a power supply ramp.
There are two main portions of startup: hardware startup and firmware startup. During hardware startup,
the CPU is halted, and other resources configure the device. During firmware startup, the CPU runs code
generated by PSoC Creator to configure the device. When startup ends, the device is fully configured,
and its CPU begins execution of user-authored main() code.
The hardware startup configures the device to meet the general performance specifications given in the
datasheet. The hardware startup phase begins after a power supply ramp or reset event. There are two
phases of hardware startup: reset and boot. After hardware startup ends, code execution from Flash
begins.
Firmware startup configures the PSoC device to behave as described in the PSoC Creator project. It
begins at the end of hardware startup. The PSoC device’s CPU begins executing user-authored main()
code after the completion of firmware startup. The main task of firmware startup is to populate
configuration registers such that the PSoC device behaves as designed in the PSoC Creator project. This
includes configuring analog and digital peripherals, as well as system resources such as clocks and
routing.
The startup procedure may be altered to better fit a specific application’s needs. There are two ways to
modify device startup: using the PSoC Creator design-wide resources (DWR) interface, and modifying the
device startup code.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
85
Startup and Linking
PSoC 3
Startup is all handled by a single assembly file (KeilStart.a51), which is based on a template provided by
Keil. There isn’t a file specifically associated with linking. The linker directives are used instead.
PSoC 4/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP
The startup and linker scripts have been custom developed by Cypress, but both of the toolchain vendors
that we currently support provide example linker implementations and complete libraries that solve many
of the issues that have been created by our custom implementations.
The memory layout of the final binary and hex images, as well as the placement in PSoC 5 memory is
described in the linker descriptor (.scat) file generated as part of the PSoC Creator build. The custom
linker descriptor file can be used when building the project instead of the default one by going to Build
Settings window and specifying path to the file in the Custom Linker Script field of the Linker category.
Realview Implementation (applicable for MDK and RVDS)
Use all the standard libraries (C standardlib, C microlib, fplib, mathlib). All of these libraries are linked in
by default.

Support for RTOS and user replacement of routines. This is possible because the library routines
are denoted as "weak" allowing their replacement if another implementation is provided.

A mechanism is provided that allows for the replacement of the provided linker/scatter file with a
user version. This is implemented by allowing the user to create the file local to their project and
having a build setting that allows the specification of this file as the linker/scatter file instead of the
file provided automatically.

Currently the heap and stack size are specified as a fixed quantity (4 K Stack, 1 K Heap). If
possible the requirement to specify Heap and Stack sizes should be removed entirely. If that is
not possible, then these values should be the defaults with the option to choose other values in
the Design-Wide Resources GUI.

All the code in the Generated Source tree is compiled into a single library as part of the build
process. Then that compiled library is linked in with the user code in the final link.
CMSIS Support
Cortex Microcontroller Software Interface Standard (CMSIS) is a standard from ARM for interacting with
Cortex M-series processors. There are multiple levels of support. The Core Peripheral Access Layer
(CMSIS Core) support is provided.
PSoC Creator 2.2 provides support for CMSIS Core version 1.30. Also, PSoC Creator 2.2 provides the
ability to use a custom version of the CMSIS Core.
The following diagram shows how CMSIS Core version 1.30 files are integrated into the cy_boot
component and how CMSIS Core version 3.01 files can be integrated.

Manual addition of the CMSIS Core files
Beginning with PSoC Creator 2.2, the “Include CMSIS Core Peripheral Library Files” option is added to
the System tab of the DWR file. By default, this option is enabled and CMSIS Core version 1.30 files are
added to the project. This option should be disabled if you wish to manually add CMSIS Core files.
Un-check “Include CMSIS Core Peripheral Library Files” option on the System tab of the DWR file to
detach CMSIS 1.30 files from the cy_boot component.
Add the following CMSIS Core files to the project:

core_cmInstr.h

core_cmFunc.h

core_cm3.h
Based on the CMSIS vendor-specific template file (<device>.h), create device header file, copy device
specific definitions from core_cm3_psoc5.h file and add following definitions at the top of the file:
#include <cytypes.h>
#define __CHECK_DEVICE_DEFINES

GCC Implementation
Use all the standard GCC libraries (libcs3, libc, libcs3unhosted, libgcc, libcs3micro). All of these libraries
are linked in by default.
Preservation of Reset Status (PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP)
The value of the reset status register (RESET_SR0) is read and cleared any time the device is booted.
That value is saved to a global SRAM variable. Note that the IPOR, PRES, and LVI reset sources clear
the RESET_SR0 register, and the WDT, Software reset and XRES reset sources preserve the
RESET_SR0 register. For more information, refer to the device datasheet and TRM.
Some PSoC 3 devices perform an additional software reset. If any other than a software device reset
previously occurred, it will reload the NVLs and apply the correct settings. This operation is transparent to
the normal boot process and will not interfere with bootloading, debugging, or normal device functionality.
See the device errata for more information.
To retain user-defined status that persists through many resets, use the CY_RESET_GP0 and
CY_RESET_GP1 bits in the RESET_SR0 register. The CyResetStatus variable is used to obtain value of

13 Watchdog Timer
PSoC 3/PSoC 5/PSoC 5LP APIs
void CyWdtStart(uint8 ticks, uint8 lpMode)
Description: Enables the watchdog timer. The timer is configured for the specified count
interval, the CTW is cleared, the setting for low power mode is configured, and the
watchdog timer is enabled.
The hardware implementation of the watchdog timer prevents any modification of
the timer once it has been enabled. It also prevents the timer from being disabled
once it has been enabled. This protects the watchdog timer from changes caused
by errant code. As a result, only the first call to CyWdtStart() after reset will have
any effect.
The watchdog counts each time the CTW reaches the period specified. The
watchdog must be cleared using the CyWdtClear() function before the watchdog
counts to three. The CTW is free running, so this will occur after between 2 and 3
timer periods elapse.
PSoC 5: The watchdog timer should not be used during sleep modes. Since the
WDT cannot be disabled after it is enabled, the WDT timeout period can be set to
be greater than the sleep wakeup period, then feed the dog on each wakeup from
Sleep.
Parameters: ticks: One of the four available timer periods. Once WDT enabled, the interval
cannot be changed.

PSoC 4 APIs
PSoC 4 has three WDT timers, and all watchdog configuration changes should be done with WDT timers
disabled. The only exception: CySysWdtWriteMatch() API for watchdog counters 0 and 1.
Configuring the WDT involves passing control signals between clock domains, which requires the ILO to
be enabled. So, the ILO is enabled by default by WDT APIs that are writing changes to WDT registers.
The following diagram shows the WDT configuration steps:
If WDT mode is not configured, WDT timers are in a free running mode.
If the WDT is set to generate interrupts, they should be cleared with a corresponding API; otherwise,
interrupts will be generated continuously.

This chapter describes the MISRA-C:2004 compliance and deviations for the PSoC Creator cy_boot
component and code generated by PSoC Creator.
MISRA stands for Motor Industry Software Reliability Association. The MISRA specification covers a set of
122 mandatory rules and 20 advisory rules that apply to firmware design and has been put together by
the Automotive Industry to enhance the quality and robustness of the firmware code embedded in
automotive devices.
There are two types of deviations defined:

project deviations – deviations that are applicable for all PSoC Creator components

specific deviations – deviations that are applicable for the specific component
This section provides information on the following items:

Verification Environment

Project Deviations

Some C language extensions (like
interrupt keyword) relate to device
hardware functionality and cannot be
practically avoided.
In the main.c file that is generate by
PSoC Creator the non-standard main()
declaration is used: “void main()”. The
standard declaration is “int main()”
The number of macro definitions exceeds
1024 - program does not conform strictly
to ISO:C90.
The length of names based on userdefined names depends on the length of
the user-define names.

Objects shall be defined at block
scope if they are only accessed
from within a single function.
8.10
R
All declarations and definitions of
objects or functions at file scope
shall have internal linkage unless
external linkage is required.

Local variables with the same name may
appear in different functions. Aside from
commonly used names such as 'i',
generated API functions for multiple
instances of the same component will
have identical local variable names.
The object 'InstanceName_initVar' is only
referenced by function
'InstanceName_Start', in the translation
unit where it is defined. The intention of
this publicly available global variable is to
be used by user application.

The cast from unsigned int to pointer
does not have any unintended effect, as it
is a consequence of the definition of a
structure based on hardware registers.
Some functions that are part of the
component API are not used within
component API. Components API are
designed to be used in user application
and might not be used in component API.
Some components in some specific
configurations can contain redundant
operations introduced because of
generalized implementation approach.

15 cy_boot Component Changes
Version 3.40
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 3.40:
Description of Version 3.40 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Added PSoC 4 device support.
PSoC 3: Updated CyPmSleep() function description
with the information that hardware buzz must be
disabled before sleep mode entry.
New device support.
Using hardware buzz in conjunction with other
device wakeup sources can cause the device to
lockup, halting further code execution. Refer to
the device errata for more information.
As hardware buzz is required for LVI, HVI, and
Brown Out detect operations – they must be
disabled before sleep mode entry and restored on
wakeup. If LVI or HVI is enabled, CyPmSleep() will
halt device if project is compiled in debug mode.
Version 3.30
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 3.30:
Description of Version 3.30 Changes
Updates to support PSoC Creator 2.2.
Added MISRA Compliance section.
Added Low Voltage Analog Boost Clocks section.
Added requirement about interrupt configuration,
when interrupt is sources from PICU and used as a
wakeup event.
The delay between Bus clock and analog clocks
configuration save/restore moved from
CyPmSleep() and CyPmHibernate() functions to
CyPmSaveClocks() / CyPmRestoreClocks().
Reason for Changes / Impact
New feature for the SC-based (TIA, Mixer, PGA
and PGA_Inv) components.
For PSoC 5LP, the interrupt component
connected to the wakeup source may not use the
"RISING_EDGE" detect option. Use the "LEVEL"
option instead.
This modification decrease CyPmSleep() and
CyPmHibernate() functions execution time.
The components that use analog clock must not
be used after CyPmSaveClocks() execution till
the clocks configuration will be restored by
CyPmRestoreClocks().
Added float32 and float64 data types. The type
float64 is not available for PSoC 3 devices.

The PSoC 5LP Alternate Active usage model was
changed to be same as for PSoC 5.
Improve PSoC 5 and PSoC 5LP documentation.
The interface of the CyIMO_SetFreq() function was
updated for PSoC 5LP to support 62 and 72 MHz
frequencies.
No parameters are used for CyPmAltAct(). That
means NONE should be passed for the
parameters. The device will go into Alternate
Active mode until an enabled interrupt occurs.
Added interface to configure IMO to 62 and 72
MHz on PSoC 5LP.
Version 3.10
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 3.10:
Description of Version 3.10 Changes

version 3.0 to separate the Bootloader and
Bootloadable components. The change is listed
here as well for migrating from older versions.
A few edits were applied to the Voltage Detect
APIs: fixed a typo in the register definition, added
CyVdLvDigitEnable() function threshold parameter
mask to protect from invalid parameter values,
updated CyVdLvDigitEnable() and
CyVdLvAnalogEnable() functions to use delay
instead of while loop during hardware initialization.
Minor updates to the CyPmSleep() function.

cy_boot Component Changes
Description of Version 3.0 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
The implementation of the Flash API was slightly
modified as the SPC API used in Flash APIs was
refactored.
The implementation of the CyXTAL_32KHZ_Start(),
CyXTAL_32KHZ_Stop(),
CyXTAL_32KHZ_ReadStatus() and
CyXTAL_32KHZ_SetPowerMode() APIs was
updated.
The implementation of the CyXTAL_Start() function
for PSoC 5 parts was changed. For more
information on function see Clocking section.
The following APIs were removed for PSoC 5 parts:
CyXTAL_ReadStatus(),
CyXTAL_EnableErrStatus(),
CyXTAL_DisableErrStatus(),
CyXTAL_EnableFaultRecovery(),
CyXTAL_DisableFaultRecovery().
The CyDmacConfigure() function is now called by
the startup code only if DMA component is placed
onto design schematic.
The implementation quality improvements.
The CyXTAL_32KHZ_ReadStatus() function
implementation was changed by removing digital
measurement status return.
Updated description of following APIs:
CyFlash_SetWaitCycles().
The address of the top of reentrant stack was
decremented from CYDEV_SRAM_SIZE to
(CYDEV_SRAM_SIZE - 3) for PSoC 3.
The CyIMO_SetFreq() function implementation was
updated by removing support of 74 and 62 MHz
parameters for PSoC 5 parts.
The minimal P divider value for the
CyPLL_OUT_SetPQ() was risen from 4 up to 8.
The CyXTAL_SetFbVoltage()/SetWdVoltage() were
added for PSoC 5LP devices.
The description of the CyWdtStart() was updated.
Added additional timeouts to ensure proper block
start-up.
Changes were made to make sure that MHZ
XTAL starts successfully on PSoC 5 parts.
The functionality provided within these APIs is not
supported by the PSoC 5 part.
Increase device startup time in case if DMA is not
used within design. The CyDmacConfigure()
function should be called manually if DMA
functionality is used without DMA component.
The analog status measurement is the only
reliable source.
Changes were made to improve power mode
configuration.
Prevent rewriting CyResetStatus variable with the
parameters and/or local variables of the reentrant
function during its execution.
Removal of the functionality that is not supported
by device.
To meet hardware requirements
The functionality provided by these APIs is
available in PSoC 5LP.

cy_boot Component Changes
Description of Version 3.0 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
The Startup and Linking section was updated. The
information on using custom linker script was
added.
Following macros were removed: CYWDT_TICKS
CYWDT_CLEAR, CYWDT_ENABLE
CYWDT_DISABLE_AUTO_FEED.
The CyCpuClk_SetDivider() was removed for PSoC
5 devices.
The cystrcpy(), cystrlen(), CyGetSwapReg16() and
CySetSwapReg16() APIs were removed.
The return value description for
CyEnterCriticalSection() function was updated for
PSoC 5.
Added all APIs with the CYREENTRANT keyword
when they are included in the .cyre file.
To provide more information on device operation.
The CyWdtStart() and CyWdtClear() should be
used instead.
The hardware does not support this functionality.
The library functions should be used.
Function returns 0 if interrupts were previously
enabled or 1 if interrupts were previously
disabled.
Not all APIs are truly reentrant. Comments in the
component API source files indicate which
functions are candidates.
This change is required to eliminate compiler
warnings for functions that are not reentrant used
in a safe way: protected from concurrent calls by
flags or Critical Sections.
Added PSoC 5LP support
Version 2.40 and Older
Version 2.40
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.40:
Description of Version 2.40 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Updated the CyPmSleep() and CyPmHibernate()
APIs.
Changes were made to improve power mode
configuration.
Version 2.30
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.30:
Description of Version 2.30 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
CyIntEnable and CyIntDisable functions have been
changed to be CYREENTRANT by default.
Many components require CyIntEnable and
CyIntDisable to be reentrant and these
components have no way to cause that to
happen. This means you no longer need to
populate a cyre file for these functions that you do
not call.
PSoC® Creator™ System Reference Guide, Document Number: 001-85653, Rev. *A
108
cy_boot Component Changes
Description of Version 2.30 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
The implementation of CyPmSleep() and
CyPmAltActive() functions were modified by
removing 32 KHz ECO,100 KHz and 1 KHz ILO
power mode configuration before device low power
mode entry.
User was made responsible for clock power
modes configuration during Sleep and Alternate
Active mode.
The implementation of the CyPmSaveClocks() was
updated to set IMO clock frequency to 48 MHz
when "Enable Fast IMO during startup" is enabled,
and to 12 MHz otherwise. The IMO frequency is
always set to 12 MHz just before the low power
mode entry and restored immediately after wakeup.
The CyPmRestoreClocks() restores original value of
the IMO clock.
The implementation of the CyPmRestoreClocks()
function was updated by removing restoring MHz
ECO and PLL disabled state.
Global interrupts are disabled on
CyPmSleep()/CyPmHibernate() entry and restored
before return from the function.
The CyPmSleep() and CyPmAltAct() function
implementations for PSoC 5 devices were updated
to ignore all parameters. The PSoC 5 device will go
into Sleep mode until it is woken by an interrupt
from one of three wakeup sources: CTW, Once per
second, or Port Interrupt Controller (PICU). These
wakeup sources must already be configured to
generate an interrupt. The CTW is configured using
the Sleep Timer component and the Once per
second interrupt using the Real Time Clock
component.
Updated architecture- and silicon-specific #defines
to be used across the content.
Improved performance of non-DMA configuration on
8051 devices.
The implementation of the CyPmRestoreClocks()
was updated for PSoC 5 silicon. The megahertz
crystal is given 130 ms to stabilize. Its readiness is
not verified after the hold-off timeout.
The power mode of the source clocks for the timer
used as the wakeup timer was removed from PM
API functions.
PSoC Creator Power Management section was
updated.
The CyILO_SetPowerMode() and
CyXTAL_32KHZ_SetPowerMode() can be used
to configure clock power modes.
The information regarding user responsibility of
clock power mode configuration was added at the
PM API section.
The IMO value should match FIMO and FIMO is
always 12 MHz.
The CyPmRestoreClocks() function is expected to
be called only after CyPmSaveClocks(), while the
last one always disables MHz ECO and PLL.
Interrupts are disabled to prevent their occurrence
before the state of the device has been restored.
The CyPmSleep() and CyPmAltAct() functions
have to be used only with the following
parameters:
CyPmSleep(PM_SLEEP_TIME_NONE,
PM_SLEEP_SRC_NONE) and
CyPmAltAct(PM_ALT_ACT_TIME_NONE,
PM_ALT_ACT_SRC_NONE).
These modifications decrease the startup time
and slightly reduce consumption of code memory
and internal data memory.
These modifications increase crystal startup time,
but ensure that crystal is ready to be used.
Before calling PM API function, you must
manually configure the power mode of the source
clocks for the timer that will be used as the
wakeup timer.
More detailed information on Power Management
API usage was added.

cy_boot Component Changes
Version 2.21
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.21:
Description of Version 2.21 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Provide a new option for selecting how to
compute checksums on data transferred
from the bootloader host to the
bootloader.
Provide a generic option to allow users to
define their own custom bootloader
communication functions.
Provide a more robust way to check for errors during IO
transfers.
Updated a few Power Management
functions to prevent some possible
issues.
Added a variable CyResetStatus that can
be used to get the information from the
RESET_SR0 register.
Added a workaround for some PSoC 3
devices to ensure that the NVL values
have been properly initialized.
Make adding support for additional communication
protocols (SPI, UART, ...) easier. Also provides a means of
supporting multiple communications components
concurrently in the same design.
Some parentheses were missing which could cause items
to be evaluated in the wrong order.
This is provided because many of the fields contained within
the RESET_SR0 register are clear-on-read. Since the
bootloader needs to access this register as part of its
operation, it prevents the actual application code from
accessing the values. The variable is provided so that the
application can still get access to all the information.
On some PSoC 3 devices the NVL information may not be
initialized properly. This workaround is provided to ensure
that the NVLs are properly loaded before performing any of
the startup code.
Version 2.20
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.20:
Description of Version 2.20 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Updated the CyDelayCycles function to
work with instruction cache enabled.
The original CyDelayCycles function was designed to be
used with the instruction cache disabled. For PSoC 3 ES3
and Production silicon, when the instruction cache is
enabled, the length of the delay was no longer correct.
The comments and descriptions for the CyPmSleep(),
CyPmHibernate(), and CyPmAltAct() functions we clarified
to refer to the silicon errata for a PSoC 3 ES2 and PSoC 5
defect.
Fixed an issue in the bootloader for PSoC 5 that would
cause it to fail to verify the application code if the application
code was larger than 64 K.
Modified what is required for the bootloader to consider that
there is activity and that someone appears to be attempting
to communicate.
Previously, if the Bootloader received any data over the
selected communications component it would then wait
forever for data. With this change, the bootloader will now
only wait forever if it has received the Enter Bootloader
command.
Updated comments in the code and
descriptions in this guide for low power
mode functions.
Fixed a bootloader issue with the
CyBtldr_ValidateApp function.
Addressed a bootloader wait for traffic
issue.

Change was made to address an issue. There is no impact.
Version 2.10
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.10:
Description of Version 2.10 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Updated Flash verification code in the
bootloader
Fixed an issue in the bootloader's Verify routine that could
cause a failure to be reported even for a valid image if flash
was disabled.
Version 2.0
This section lists and describes the major changes in the cy_boot component version 2.0:
Description of Version 2.0 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
Keil C51 keywords available as macros
These macros allow code to specify the memory space of
variables and pointers while maintaining compatibility with
other compilers. The most commonly used keywords are
CYCODE, CYXDATA, and CYDATA, which represent C51’s
code, xdata, and data keywords, respectively. On other
compilers, these macros are ignored.
It is no longer necessary to define macros such as
CYLIB_POWER_MANAGEMENT to include API functions
from CyLib.
This prevents potential errors and warnings when building
projects in RealView with DMA-based configuration
enabled.
In previous versions, only the first 32 entries of the table
were being initialized.
In previous versions, the reserved vectors were initialized to
0, which is not a valid interrupt service routine address.
In previous versions, the high and low bytes were swapped.
CyLib APIs are no longer conditional
Add separate section for .dma_init in
RealView linker script
Initialize complete SRAM interrupt vector
table
Initialize reserved interrupt vectors to
default interrupt handler
Fix incorrect endian in CyIntSetVector
return value on PSoC 3
Apply interrupt attribute to interrupt
service routine declarations
Make CY_GET_REGxx/CY_SET_REGxx
reentrant and improve performance
Interrupt service routines declared with
CY_ISR/CY_ISR_PROTO/cyisraddress now have the
interrupt attribute, which causes the compiler to emit code to
adjust the stack alignment. RealView checks for the
interrupt attribute as part of the type, so interrupt service
routines or vectors that do not have the interrupt attribute
will fail to compile on RealView. For this reason,
cy_isr_v1_20 and earlier are not compatible with
cy_boot_v1_50 when using RealView. This affects PSoC 5
only; the interrupt attribute was already present in the PSoC
3 version.
The functions that implemented this functionality,
CyGetRegXX and CySetRegXX, have been replaced with
assembly routines. The new routines may be safely used in
interrupt service routines.

cy_boot Component Changes
Description of Version 2.0 Changes
Reason for Changes / Impact
PSoC 3 ES3 support in CyDelay
CPUCLK_DIV has been moved from a SFR to the
CLKDIST_MSTR1 in ES3.
The LONG_MIN, LONG_MAX, and ULONG_MAX macros
are now provided by the toolchain-specific limits.h. This
prevents warnings caused by differences between the
compiler’s limits.h and CyLib.h.
Corrected some preprocessor conditionals that caused
errors when RealView was used with the --gnu option.
The startup code used in PSoC 5 projects has been
updated to use standard libraries to provide the initialization.
This provides for a standard initialization.
cydevice.h has been marked obsolete, so the APIs and
generated code provided with PSoC Creator should not use
it.
Now any component can make use of these defines, Ex
Flash component
Use limits.h and ctype.h to replace some
macros in CyLib.h
Support for RealView in --gnu mode
Update PSoC 5 startup code to make
better use of standard libraries
Replaced cydevice.h with cydevice_trm.h
CYCODE, CYDATA, CYXDATA and
CYFAR defines are copied over to
cytypes.h
Fix for the cache flash cycles incorrect
behavior after sleep.
Miscellaneous Flash/EEPROM API
changes.
Added reentrancy support.
Converted cymemset and cymemcpy to
macros, removed cymemmove.
CYREG_CACHE_CR doesn't retain its value in PSOC 3
after the sleep
Define active/standby power configuration registers based
on silicon.
Define active/standby power configuration register constant
based on silicon.
Added CyFlash_Start() and CyFlash_Stop() APIs.
Removed CyFlashEEActivePower() and
CyFlashEEStandbyPower() APIs,
Modified CySetFlashEEBuffer()for PSoC 3 so as not to test
whether the buffer is not a pointer at 0.
Changed an argument in CyWriteRowConfig() API to
rowData.
Added CyEEPROM_Start(), CyEEPROM_Stop(),
CyEEPROM_ReadReserve(), CyEEPROM_ReadRelease(),
and CyFlash_SetWaitCycles(uint8 freq) APIs.
Power mode registers and power mode register constants
are defined based on the silicon.
Cache Control register is defined based on the silicon.
Appropriate APIs in cylib.c/h, cyflash.c/h, cydmac.c/h and
cyspc.c/h files were updated to include reentrant support.
The memset/memcpy/memmove provided by the toolchain
vendor are typically faster than the generic implementation
because they are designed for the specific target platform.
Including both the vendor-provided functions and the
generic implementation wastes code space. Non-legacy
code should use memset and memcpy directly.

To provide additional functionality.
To support new compilers in future.
There were deficiencies in the low power APIs before
cy_boot 2.0. You must update your design to use cy_boot
2.0 and rewrite the low power portion of the design to use
the new APIs.
