Re: STM32CubeMX generates gcc makefiles now

Nice to see official support for makefiles. There have been a number of 3rd party scripts to do this, including mine.

I have been busy with other projects recently so have not upgraded the Cube MX tool. Probably time to do so.

Re: 3.2" HX8357B (16Bit) Library for STM32

Interesting. 3.2" HX8357B were given out a number of years ago as free samples at trade shows. These have the Part number TD320 on them. No one ever really posted to the Yahoo egroup https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TD-T320/ I was given a handful to experiment with. I did track down that Adafruit...

The F4 is a cortex M9? I thought it was a cortex M3 ;>)

Re: HALMX roadmap.

This port has been superseded by the "Official" STM port and the STM32Generic port. This was more of a proof of concept that it was possible to combine HAL and Arduino libraries. There is another part on my github https://github.com/sheepdoll/XSTMScrips.git which is one of the scripts I was creating...

Re: Where's Roger?

Sorry guys I had to go back to the UK, unexpectedly, at the end of March, due to a bereavement in the family. I've been back for about 2 weeks but I'm only now had time to start to catch up with what's been going on. Started working the overnights for MakerFaire prep work. I can attest Roger is not...

Re: New RPi Zero W - with Wifi and Bluetooth

Now, I am no stranger to UNIX or Linux but Raspbian Jessie is "cooked: just for the Pi's so one must understand that they are working with a streamlined Linux and that the SD card supports two (2) partitions, one dedicated to boot. Worst, the damn(able) Jessie boots initially to GUI which means you...

Re: New RPi Zero W - with Wifi and Bluetooth

I got a couple of Zeros last year. Connect one to an ADAfruit TFT while on a 10 day cruse between SF and Alaska. Not really much more than a novelty. Especially when one does not have a reliable network connection. Last month I got a 7" display and a Model3-B. I thought the display would be HDMI. It...

Re: Blue Pill Co-Processor for Retro Computer

Looks good, apart from the vector boards are the wrong color, The silk screen grid also is too clean and modern looking. Vector boards were either fiberglass green or blue. I still have some blue sheets that are about 11x17 in size. Usually there was no copper layer. The wire wrapping pins were held...

Re: Unix on an SMT32F103... maybe

With an MPU and 407 you can run for example a max 128kB large program (text+data+stack) while the 64kB could be used for kernel. ... I see you were quite active on the RetroBSD forums. There is a lot to digest between these projects. The AVR/ARM emulator is a hoot. Somewhere I have a project for a ...

Re: Unix on an SMT32F103... maybe

I have been playing a bit with R-pis. Looking at my F7 Discovery with the large touch screen on it wanting a shell script. This thread prompted me to waste time look at some of the wiki pages on the history of Posix and the so called Unix wars. Back when I was in college, in the early 1980s there wa...
