We have developed ARM based Data Acquisition system .I have to
develop software using ecos RTOS .Please help me how to start
application in ecos

Hello,

What type of processor you have?

What is exactly the application?

Have you used eCos before?

Balazs



LPC2294 Phillips ARM7TDMI-S based Micro controller.The main function
of System is to get data from different meterological,oceanographic
sensors.then process these sensor data store them in NAND Flash disk
for data transmission.Inever used ecos before.but Iknow some functions --- In lpc2000@lpc2..., "balazs_scherer" <scheba@f...> wrote:

OK, we have a similar project currently with the same processor (the
application are is comletly different, but the functions are about the
same, the only problem that needs a work around is a FAT file system
in the Flash card.)

I'm using the LPC2106 with eCos for a long time, so probably I can
help you.

First you should need external RAM for you LPC2294, because the
internal 16k is not enought to eCos.

To start eCos you sould go to http://sources.redhat.com/ecos/
and perform the downloading and installation steps. Of course
you need cygwin if you are using windows. The installation steps are
well described so just follow them (don't forget to download the arm
gnu tools, the eCos installation it will ask if you want that).

After you have done it it is still many thing to do...

If you are using windows, then you probably need to download the new
version of the configtool from
http://www.ecoscentric.com/devzone/configtool.shtml

The old one should be replaced with this in the ecos-2.0/tools directory.

Try to run this configtool. It should be working and recogniying many
packets.

If you have done these steps write me and I will send the following
steps.

A question on the eCOS mailing list might provide assistance.

I'd suggest that an ecos list would be a better place to ask.



Hi Balazs,
Somebody is telling that the ecos is not an RTOS, only the ecos-pro is an
RTOS. Is this true? If true how can we use ecos in RTS applications?

Please advice.

Thanks & Regards,
Mohan

Even Windows is an RTOS :-)
Sure eCos is an RTOS. eCos-pro is only the commercial extension (expensive
support etc. ) of the GPLed (or a Linux like license) kernel.

But: eCos is a monster in sizes and API, but eCos mailing lists might
would be more suited.

Iam using LPC2106 ARM7TDMI based Micro controller.
Application is Data Acquisition system.
Inever used ecos before
