@kirby2008: ...The result... you compile your program and save the resulting file to your PC... then drag this file over to the virtual mbed hard drive to self program...

Thanks for this info

Good day Max,

In regards to some of the kinetis boards... mbed.org supports some of them and so you can now use mbed's system... so online compiler, libraries, etc.  The result... you compile your program and save the resulting file to your PC... then drag this file over to the virtual mbed hard drive to self program...


As for some comments by others about the exceptional low cost of the PSoc board... I think it is impressive to offer a dev board for $4,but to once the price is below $20 or $15 I find it ridiculously cheap...  To have a fully assembled board for less than $20 or so is utterly amazing. 

Cheers

@antedeluvian: Coincidentally look for my upcoming blogs this month on the PSoC4. Right Max?

Good grief -- talk about a slave-driver -- yes, I will indeed be posting your columns just as soon as I have a spare moment LOL

@bodger: Little known fact: you can get free shipping from Digikey if you pay at the time you submit your order.

I didn't know that -- thanks for the heads-up.

@rwehri: ...by now, shouldn't we already have a fairly full complement of USB patch cords?

On the one hand I'm up to my armpits in them ... on the other hand I never seem to have the one I need to hand LOL

Fortunately, there's a technology recycling store just round the corner that also makes up cables -- they do most USB cable varients for about $5 or less.

@rwehri: ...the debugger end doesn't stop having value, either.  You now have a very low cost debugger for your own target board...

That's an excellent point!

@Kevin: I ordered one to give it a try...

I'm going to give one a try myself (like I need something else to do LOL) -- I'd love to hear your experiences (max.maxfield@ubm.com)

Wot? Not using anti-static protection, or was that on the hand holding the camera?

To get that option in practice, print out your order, write a check for the order amount, and mail them to Digikey.
