Hello all, I don't know if it's a good place to ask, but since a lot of good Arduino-ish discussion is going on here, I've decided it's worth to try... I need a cheap programmer for CY8C5888AXI-LP096 and CY8C5868LTI-LP039. I have no experience with ARMs yet, only with Arduino, AVR and PICs. I need this programmer only to program CY8C5 chips because I've got an unpopulated PSoC5LP (FreeSoC2) board by Sparkfun and I want to solder all stuff there myself. I'm also worried a bit about soldering, because those chips are TQFP and QFN but the programmer is more important right now... FreeSoC2 is open source so firmwares for both chips are most likely on github, I just need to get them burned somehow.... Any suggestions?

Sorry. I have only dabbled briefly with PSoC chips, and only on pre-built demo boards. I don't use them as a rule (much as I would like to since they are a great concept) because the tools are only available on Windows.

I doubt very much any one else here has even seen one. We're PIC32 here.
