Re: Inexpensive PPC e200 Devboards with compiler.

Gotten an opportunity to work on this at all? The DEVKIT-MPC5744P (powertrain) is finally available. I have a coupon from NXP to get one at a discount. If any other developers would like a port I'd be willing to buy you a board. Giovanni: You should poke your marketing department at the fact that Fr...

Re: Inexpensive PPC e200 Devboards with compiler.

I will add the free GCC VLE compiler to the next ChibiStudio release too See if you can get it to compile. I followed their instructions to compile it from source without installing their S32 Eclipse environment. The build tools seem to try and hit their intranet SVN server and fails. Question, are...

Inexpensive PPC e200 Devboards with compiler.

NXP has just released 2 full featured $35 development boards for their MPC5744P and MPC5748G chips. What would it take to get ChibiOS ported to these? I would be willing to donate one of each board for development if it would help. The DEVKIT-MPC5744P features the MPC5744P, a 32-bit automotive micro...

The source code is available as a download: http://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/updates/S32DS/e200-gcc-1.1.3.tar...

Re: Hints on topics for next ChibiOS videos

How about a short video on RTOSes and parts of them. A dead simple explanation of Semaphores Mutexes, etc

Re: [POLL] How important is ChibiStudio for ChibiOS

The answer is "It depends". If ChibiStudio is just a generic name for any completely integrated IDE & compiler: very. If ChibiStudio is the specific implementation of the Eclipse and GCC: not very. If ChibiStudio 7 was based on Code::Blocks or Em::Blocks or any other compiler it wouldn...

Re: eTPU interface & Precompiled binaries for ST SPC56xx?

There is not (yet) an "eTPU driver" so you would have to initialize it yourself. After that basically it just generates interrupts that can wakeup threads using one of the available mechanisms: events, semaphores etc. Giovanni I guess I'll have to read up on the eTPU from ST and Freescale...
