LPCE2214

Started by vennela2214 March 9, 2006
I have purchased LPCE2214 testing board from OLIMEX.
Iam able to power up this board and check the test routien given by 
OLIMEX. I have couple of questions on this..

How would I know what RTOS is built in by default in this board.?
I would like to port new OS in to this.. if this is the case how can i 
copy the old one for future purposes.
If any body has any guidelines or steps in porting a freely availabale 
RTOS, pLease guide me through.

please help me on this.

Thank you.

I searched the Olimex site and there is no mention of an RTOS on this
board.  There is a link to various test programs.  Perhaps these
include the default factory program.

Check the functionality of the board against the code at the Olimex
site.  It if looks the same then you will have the source.  If not,
you may want to try to grab it with a JTAG device - assuming it is not
protected.  But, all you will get is object code - it is a fool's
exercise to try to convert that back to a high level language.

If you have any questions about the code, email Olimex.

I don't, but others may.  FreeRTOS has been ported to a lot of these
devices.  I had it running on an LPC2106 so I know it can be done.

Richard,

Thanks for your mail and suggestions. You said, you had FreeRtos and 
running on LPC2106.... 
I would be very happy if you provide me the basic steps needed for 
porting on LPC2106..I have some freeRtos with me,so if you provide 
me the basic steps i would be very thankful to you..

Thanks.

Heck, I didn't do anything.  It is all laid out for the LPC2106 using
GCC at www.freertos.org under RTOS Ports.

It's been a few months and I don't really recall what I did but it
couldn't have been very much.
