I'm a good programmer in just about any computer language you can mention. But for example, I don't know how to use the multitude of protocols to talk to the various types of hardware. Some easy examples of these protocols are the 1553 bus and UART. There are many more that I could list. I'm looking for a well-rounded course or courses to learn Embedded Programming. What should I learn? What...

Maybe I'm stuck in my ways like a dinosaur, but I've always liked my Codewright editor. My latest PC would not take my previous installation of it though and I had to start fresh. But that means a lot of stuff that worked before doesn't work now. This is ver 7.5, that latest. I don't know exactly how Windows makes the connection when you click on a file type to open it in the


From cooperative to preemptive scheduler: a real example

I noticed my previous post about preemptive OS involved many people and started many discussions, most of them theoric. Someone wrote the synchronization of tasks in preemptive scheduler is not so difficult, after understanding some things. Others suggested to abandon at all preemptive scheduler, considering its pitfalls. Because I know my limits, I don't think I can produce a well-wri...


available toroids

I've been looking for a toroid with a cross section area (one side) of probably 2 or 3 square centimeters and an id of about 10 or 12 mm. The...

I've been looking for a toroid with a cross section area (one side) of probably 2 or 3 square centimeters and an id of about 10 or 12 mm. The intended inductor is about 14 micro henries and will handle between 40 to 80 amps in a flyback power supply at, again probably, 100 kc. Fair-Rite, Micrometals, and Magnetics show, at the desired id, cross sections typically less than 1 sqcent. G...

I have to connect ADV7280-M (contained in the EVAL-ADV7280MEBZ board) board to Rock Pi 4B SoC. I have recompiled the kernel with added adv7180.c driver. The procedure for recompilation of the kernel I have taken from: https://wiki.radxa.com/Rockpi4/dev/kernel-4.4 After that I had to add ADV7280-M to the device tree. /dts-v1/; /plugin/; / { model = "RO


Task priorities in non strictly real-time systems

I have always worked on non real-time systems, i.e. when the reaction of the system to an event should occur in a reasonable time. For example, when the user presses a button, a motor should start rotating. If the motor starts after 100us or 100ms is not so important. I never used RTOS, so the architecture of my firmware is based on "superloop technique" (background tasks running in the...


PID autotuning - not working for heating application

Is there a control engineering expert here? I could us a bit of help on how to implement a PID autotune function for a heating application (a small boiler). My current PID autotune function produces no reliable results. I use the relay feedback method (?strom and H?gglund) but it seems that the ultimate period Tu - one of the paramters determined with the relay feedback test - is directl...

I had been trying to output some sort of address name mapping for debugging. Using the Map file seemed promising initially. But when trying to dump memory locations, it became obvious that I needed the sizes, too. The pure MPASM syntax does not seem to allow annotating that information. gpasm looked superior in that respect. Their .DEF extension specifically. BUT it seems to be moving
