sci.electronics.design Arm Cortex assembley code Does the Arm Cortex support both the thumb 16 bit machine codes and also the 32 bit codes? I had been under the impression that Cortex devices... Read more »

Static analysis tool?

April 16, 2021, 7:24 pm

Perhaps someone here can help... I'm doing a presentation on techniques for embedded, especially removing and keeping out bugs ;-) Using an example project from last year. A reviewer of my first... Read more »

Using C preproc to uniquely identify structure members

April 10, 2021, 5:51 pm

I could use some advice for a problem that I've had on my mind for years. I'm looking for a black box function that will examine a memory block of a known structure and output a list of IDs that ... Read more »

Task, process, thread, etc.

March 31, 2021, 11:31 pm

I've been refactoring some of my RTOS documentation. Comments from the reviewers suggest there's still some confusion as to terms (despite the fact that I explicitly define them! :< ) All seem t... Read more »

Multi-master RS485

  [ 2 ]
March 25, 2021, 4:27 pm

Are there any *real* implementation of multi-master half-duplex RS485 bus? I often use half-duplex RS485 and I always use a master-slave polling protocol. This choice dramatically reduce the compl... Read more »

Linux embedded and direction control of RS485 transceiver

March 23, 2021, 11:06 pm

I have an half-duplex RS485 bus with 10-20 different nodes. Some of them are 8-bit MCU based, one of them could be Linux embedded. It's half-duplex, so it's important for the transmitter node to d... Read more »

Obsolete 8051 Dev Gear

March 22, 2021, 4:03 am

I have some 8051 ICE equipment back from my initial employment in the 80s Nohau Emul51 Hardware (2 x Full length ISA cards, pod with some adapters eg DIP40, PLCC44 etc) and software (on floppies, MS... Read more »

Addressing on I2C

Are they some 'reserved' 'well known' addresses on i2c? -- Read more »

Static allocation and data hiding

March 3, 2021, 12:16 pm

It's a common problem in embedded projects. You want to hide private data of modules, but you don't want to use dynamic memory allocation. In the .h file you write the typedef only and in .c file ... Read more »

CPU Virtualization / CPU state

Hi, I was wondering if someone can explain to me what CPU virtualization means from the perspective of inside of a CPU. I mean, If I have a single core ho w I virtualized it? What parts and func... Read more »


a hobby class on microcontrollers

  [ 2 3 4 5 6 ]

I need to think about a class that will include both young and old, all of whom have very little experience but at least the hope of trying to enjoy such a class on microcontrollers without knowing a... Read more »


Zynq devices, boards and suppliers
