ARM Cortex Bare Metal DIY by Neil Ludban
With hundreds of powerful low cost ARM microprocessor evaluation boards to choose from, and freely available tools like Mbed and FreeRTOS, it’s never been easier to get a quick start on that new embedded system project. But as the project grows, eventually something doesn’t work and progress comes to a full stop while you dig into the low level details of SDKs, toolchains, vendor drivers, and silicon errata.
This talk will be a sort of roadmap covering the basics from selecting a board and connecting a JTAG debugger, through assembly and C code startup, to writing device driver interrupt handlers and supporting C++. Specific examples will be shown for a work-in-progress project utilizing the FRDM-K64F development board.
WARNING: IF YOU PARK IN THE PARKING LOT ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE BUILDING, YOUR CAR WILL BE TOWED AT YOUR EXPENSE!!!
Instead, park in the North parking lot. This is a recent change in policy.
CARPE is a group of people who love to play around with hardware. From automated chicken coops to robot safe cracking to thermal imaging, we love it all. Join us to tinker, learn, hang out and have a good time.
• What we’ll do – Play with hardware, learn about hardware, hang out with cool people who love hardware.
• What to bring – Anything you want related to hardware. Personal projects, questions, tools, etc.
• Important to know – This is NOT just a meetup for people who have years of experience working with hardware. This is a meeting for anyone and everyone who is interested. Do you have zero experience but are curious? Come and learn. Do you have a lifetime of experience? Come and share that with others. Young and old alike are welcome. Pizza and Beer for everyone!
• Parking – Park on the NORTH side of the building. N. Fourth St. is a one-way street going only northbound. There is a driveway immediately north of the building for the NORTH parking lot. That is, while going North on N. Fourth St., turn right in the driveway immediately PAST the Smith Brothers Hardware Company Building to get to the NORTH parking lot. Enter at the glass doors on the south side of the building.
