STM32-P152 development with Eclipse on Linux

February 23, 2014


In this post I show how to use Eclipse to create a simple "blink" program, flash it on a STM32-P152 board and attach to it with a debugger. This has been executed with the help of Eclipse plugins, GCC ARM Embedded toolchain, OpenOCD, C232HM FTDI JTAG cable. This approach can be adapted to many Cortex-M targets and many JTAG adapters.

Free Eclipse ARM GCC OpenOCD Toolchain for Windows | Ångstroms And Algorithms

February 13, 2014


This new blog called Ångstroms And Algorithms has a complete tutorial on developing and debugging for ARM microcontrollers on Windows. In particular he’s using a STM32-E407 board, an ARM-USB-TINY-H JTAG adapter, ARM GCC toolchain and Eclipse. The tutorial is divided in 4 parts: Free Eclipse ARM GCC OpenOCD Toolchain for Windows Introduction ARM GCC Eclipse IDE GDB / OpenOCD Debugger Personally I am not […]

Debugging the STM32-P152 board with GDB

September 15, 2013


This post shows how to debug a program running on the Olimex STM32-P152. The setup consists of free software such as GCC, GDB and OpenOCD, and FTDI USB cables.

This post shows how to write the embedded flash of the Olimex STM32-P152 board with a custom program, using free software and FTDI USB cables.

A bug that always gets me

October 21, 2012


This week I made an error that I already repeated at least twice in my career; it doesn’t seem to stick in my brain. I’m going to write about it here, so that maybe I will stop doing it, and maybe it will prevent the same kind of error for my readers. Let’s see if you can spot […]

Ongoing project: Arduino as a JTAG adapter

January 7, 2012


I started a project to try to use Arduino as a JTAG interface to perform debugging, programming and scans. The objective is to have a setup like the following diagram: The complete project should include: Arduino sketch OpenOCD integration Python API Arduino shield with common connectors etc. In particular the shield should have: Level shifters between […]

A nasty string initialization bug in C

May 31, 2011


Today I encountered a bug that was quite difficult to find regarding strings. In order for strings to work they must be null-terminated, and this implies that an array of characters can contain a string with a length equal to the array size minus one, because there must be space for the null character. I […]

Trace and profile function calls with GCC

October 6, 2010


Software debugging is a complex task. There is always the need to collect all available information, in order to detect and understand the problem fast and to think of a proper solution. Sometimes it’s more convenient to debug step-by-step, sometimes it’s better to make the program run completely, and then trace the execution flow “offline”. […]
