Yes I understand :D .

I already made some test to have the same feature in the AVR family. But I have some problems with the Makefile.

I'm still trying to manage it.

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.

Hi All,

Just a post to said that I have modify AVR makefiles, and now, there are "Portable multi-device/board ChibiOS applications" under testhal/AVR/multi/PAL/.
So this feature is also implemented into the AVR architecture.

I find this to be a very useful feature. I have been wondering if I could make my project compile for both AVR and ARM after converting it to run on ChibiOS. I'm looking forward to seeing the example.


The Next step is to make a demo with STM and AVR together to try different Architectures, different devices and different boards :)

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.

I noticed that some of the AVR implementations of HAL drivers are not as complete as their STM32 counterparts. Does this mean that an STM32 project might need to be modified to work with AVR even though it doesn't use any drivers which aren't implemented on AVR?

Hi,

AVR support is less mature but in some cases it could depend on HW limitations. Anyway, it is better to point out non-conformities, Theo not necessarily is aware of all of them.

Then give priorities and make a plan.

It was missing support for PAL lines, but I saw that Theo addressed that today. Currently it's missing an implementation of the newly added usbWakeupHost. There may be more things I'm unaware of.

Hi,

Thanks to point me all the difference you know. I'm implementing some features step by step :). For the HAL/PAL, it is still missing the event support for the moment.

But i'm on it and any help and contribution are welcome to improve the HAL.

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.

I'd to suggest that a list be made of what still remains to be done in each port. Currently the only way to find out this information is reading the code or asking someone who is familiar with it, and I feel that this forms a barrier to people making contributions in their free time. I for one will most likely be making some contributions over the course of the next year and I personally would find such a list useful.

I'm agree with you, it is a good idea. It will be good if we can do so.

In my side, I already have a todo list to know what I have to do to update the support of the AVR architecture.
In the list, it will be good to have a working status such like (pending, work in progress, finish, etc...)

So Giovanni, can we host a such tools on the sourceforge for example or do you have another proposition?

Thanks.
regards,

Theo.

Or we can simply host a todo list to the wiki page :)

Theo.
