Xduino forum decision

We are currently deciding to go with either phpBB or SMF. If you have experience with these forums please let us know your opinion.

The topics within the discussion forum will include but not limited to:
- Xduino IDE (including ARM Compiler) and Xduino library (with Arduino-like commands) feature request/comment/suggestion/ideas
- Interesting program/projects/library
- Help channel and trouble shooting

Let us know what you think.

Xduino v0.2 to be released

The next release of Xduino will be version 0.2 making a jump from version 0.1x as most of the Arduino programming functions has been implemented along with additional features, especially those exceeding what current Arduino platform can provide.

Supported Arduino syntax will be:

pinMode digitalWrite digitalRead

analogRead (12-bits 0-4095 range)

analogWrite (12-bits 0-4095 range true Analog output not PWM)

attachInterrupt (upto 16 interrupts)
detachInterrupt interrupts noInterrupts

delay delayMicroseconds millis micros

Serial – print println read available flush

on top of this more advanced functionality will include:

Setting Serial port Rx and Tx buffer size
Serial.printf – optional C style printf function for Serial port eg.
printf(“hello %d”,123);

digitalToggle – toggle state of digital output

analogLastwrite – get the latest value set by analogwrite

(General purpose Round-Robin library will be included.)

along with endless possibilities offered by C++ libraries

More to follow… Suggestions are always welcome!

About XDuino

Arduino platform has definitely enabled a lot of people including those non-tech savvy ones to enter into the electronics worlds. From the beauty of Arduino, now comes the challenge in making Arduino-like environment accessible across as many hardware platforms as possible. This would enable the simplicity and yet powerful Arduino platform to harvest on more powerful resources provided by different hardware to overcome hardware limitations based on different needs. 

This approach will never be fully realized without contributors. So all contributions are welcome. Also, comments/suggestions will be highly appreciated. : -)

Let’s see what wonders we can create together…

Now, a little about me. My name is Ram, I am an independent IT consultant based in Bangkok and really like the Arduino project but it did not fit my needs so I started playing with ARM and manage to understand a bit about it then started this project. Feel free to contact me via the Contact us page : -)

Arduino-like library for ARM platform

Arduino-like library for ARM platform

This project has been started for making ARM processor boards (the platform which is much more powerful)  be easily accessible just like Arduino. Nowadays you can find ARM boards easily.

This idea came about when running into limitation of resources provided by the ATMEGA processor and with short learning curve for Arduino platform.

This starting point focuses on ARM Cortex-M3 processor from STM32F10ret6 platform it runs at 72MHz processor 512KB of flash memory and 64KB of RAM, many several USART communication ports and a lot of GPIO pins.

Library for other boards will be added as the board gets within reach.
