Running FreeRTOS on a STM32Nucleo using a free GCC/Eclipse toolchain

Using a micro like the STM32F4, able to run up to 160Mhz, with 512Kb of flash and about 100k of RAM, without using an operating system is a nonsense. Although it's perfectly possible to use some forms of cooperative scheduling to execute firmware activities, basically this not convenient especially when dealing with low level events related to hardware (eg. interrupt …

Conditional breakpoint while debugging STM32

It's a really common situation when working with hardware (especially while debugging asynchronous events): to stop execution while debugging only if a given event occurs. This is also called conditional breakpoint. If you are working with the STM32 family and the CMSIS ARM package for Cortex-M processors, and your toolchain is GCC-based with GDB as debugger, you can place in …

Build STM32 applications with Eclipse, GCC and STM32Cube

If you landed to this page, you probably already know that I've covered this topic in the past. I showed in a series made of three posts how to successfully setup a complete Eclipse/GCC ARM tool-chain to develop applications for the STM32Nucleo-F4 developing board. Since then, many people have reported me positive feedback on that tutorial. But, some of them …
