Linting with Eclipse and the GNU ARM Embedded Launchpad compiler

Erich Styger of MCUonEclipse writes: For a space project we have to make sure that things are not failing while our hardware orbits around the Mother Earth. Therefore we are using different static and dynamic analysis tools, and one of it is using PC-lint from Gimpel to catch as many errors and bugs as possible. For […]

tinyK20: New board with micro-SD card

Erich of MCU on Eclipse has posted an update on his open source tinyK20 project. We wrote about it previously: Changes from the earlier version (see “tinyK20 Open Source ARM Debug/Universal Board – First Prototypes“): 1.Replaced the K20 crystal with one having a smaller footprint. 2.Added Micro SD card socket on the back (same socket as […]

TinyK20 open source ARM debug/universal board

Erich has posted an update on his open source ARM debug/universal board project. We wrote about it previously: After the proof of concept phase (see “Proof of Concept: Open Source ARM SWD Debug and General Purpose Board“), the first prototypes are ready I had the first prototypes of the board we have produced internally in my […]

Proof of concept: Open source ARM SWD debug and general purpose board

Erich of MCUonEclipse writes: The Freescale FRDM boards are using a Kinetis K20 based circuit (see “OpenSDA on the Freedom KL25Z Board“): However, that firmware is not open: the K20 is secured and protected, so the firmware cannot be changed. Newer Freescale FRDM boards like FRDM-K22F2 and FRDM-K64F do have an open source bootloader and debug […]
