Contiki 2.5 running on the Web Platform

Posted on Monday, January 23rd, 2012 in Development, firmware by DP

Shuckc has successfully ported the Contiki 2.5 OS to the Web Platform. Contiki is an open source operating system for embedded devices. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 internet protocols, and is not too taxing on memory, usually taking around 40KB of ROM and a few K of RAM.

As I hinted last week (and at least one sleuth tracked down on GitHub) I’ve ported Contiki OS 2.5 to run on the WebPlatform board. The port consists of a new cpu “dspic” using the pic30 Microchip/gcc toolchain and a new platform “dp-webplatform” for Ians board.

Via the forum. Thanks Shuckc.

    Thanx !

    This takes the web platform to a new level !. Being busy this week, I can’t hardly wait until the weekend when I have some time to play around with this.

    Cool, could this be used to make a NTP server out of the Web Server?
