Microcomputer Firmware Development using Linux

detour's picture

This talk will be of primary interest to people who want to program small microcomputers for hobby or work projects. I will be using a low cost ARM development board as the "target" to demonstrate the development process.

The list of topics include:

  • Cross Compiler Tools 
  • Communicating with the Processor Core
  • Writing a program to target memory
  • Using the GNU Debugger, gdb
  • Code starting at the Reset Vector
  • Independent Tasks and Scheduling
  • Debug first on the Linux Host
  • Project Organization
