Hi guys, I am new on software programming and I am trying to understand some basic/ important things.I am interested in Bare-metal software programming, so please give me answers related on this. My question is: who is responsible and manage the physical memory mapping / allocation? Meaning, If I have 1GB physical memory on my system, the 1) CPU or 2) the Bootloader (like GRUB, U-b


SPI Flash: don't work high-speed read at 48MHz

I'm using Microchip SST26VF064B SPI Flash memory with an LPC1768 from LPC. It works until I change the SPI clock frequency from 24MHz to 48MHz. I'm using HIGH-SPEED READ command that should work up to 104MHz (the power supply is 3.3V). For example I read 0x28 0x26 when they should be 0x51 0x4C. 0010 1000 0010 0110 -> 0x28 0x26 0101 0001 0100 1100 -> 0x51 0x4C They appears s

For benchmarking C implementations, the there are a few benchmarks, but they all have their problems. Many benchmarks have memory requirements that are far too high or need functionality not necessarily available. Some are quite one-sided in what they measure (e.g. Whetstone, Dhrystone, Coremark). So, I deciced to write a new benchmark, stdcbench. I wanted it to be suitable for small syste...

Hi folks- Does anybody have any recommendations for static source code analysis tools based on practical use? My customer is asking us to apply a static source code analysis tool to an existing medical product. The product is undergoing changes for which the FDA requires another round of testing. The customer was dinged by the FDA for not using an analysis tool so they want to corr...

Use reserved vectors in Cortex-M3 vector table

Here[1] you will find the vector table of Cortex-M3 core. There are 4 vectors (16 bytes) that are named "Reserved" (plus one more at index 13). Do you think they can be used for custom purposes? The word "Reserved" seems this can't be done. I'd like to use those vectors, that are in the non-volatile Flash memory, to store some data. In my case, I will save the MAC address (6 bytes...

I'm using lwip that runs httpd over LPC1769 MCU. Now the filesystem for httpd can't fit the internal Flash memory anymore. So I'm going to use an external SPI Flash memory. I need some suggestions about a filesystem to use. I need: - a tool that creates a binary (or Intel HEX) image from a folder on my Windows development machine (the image will be downloaded to Flash); - file ma...

Hi, I'm developing a system based on Xilinx MPSoC chip, where multiple functionalities are controlled by AXI GPIO blocks. All those GPIO pins are accessible via sysfs interface. However, it is difficult to find the gpio chip and pin numbers from running Linux system. In the HDL design, the GPIO blocks are described by their names, but unfortunately those names are not propagated to
