eCos on LPC2000

Started by householder_lpc January 11, 2006
Could anyone provide me with information on using the ECOS operating
system on the LPC2000 microprocessor? Has anyone succeeded in doing so?

Does eCos impose strong demands regarding memory footprint in
comparison to ucLinux?

Thanks in advance !

ECOS has been ported to ARM. It needs one hardware timer, and has a
code footprint of about 40K on an ARM. Porting an ARM version to the
LPC2000 would hence require only the porting of timer code and uart code.
There is a synthetic linux target for ECOS which enables one to build
and debug ECOS code on a standard
linux PC.
