Xduino v0.31 released

Xduino v0.31 has been released. This release include STM32f10x required libraries as well as project example file for Keil RV-MDK and IAR EWARMv5.

Minor change has been done for serial port buffering to make sure that buffering is done seperately for each serial port.

Xduino 0.3 released

Finally Xduino version 0.3 has been released. This version has all Arduino platform functions except for analogReference() function.

On top of the the above, Xduino have taken a step further by extending the functionalities above and beyond current scope. For more information please check the Documentation section.

This version also includes Keil RV-MDK project file example.

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!

Xduino v0.12 to be released

Xduino v0.12 should come out within the next few days and it will have Serial buffer, Round-robin general purpose library, ADC (Analog input) and might also have DAC (Analog output) functionalities. Note DAC function does not exist in Arduino (yet). PWM function should be coming out soon as well but might not always be needed as there are 2 DAC channels on the ARM Cortex-M3 STM32F10ret6 board which is being used for testing. Arduino compatibility syntax will be provided on the new functions as well.

ARM programming made simple with Xduino (v0.11)

With the current release of Xduino v0.11 for ARM Cortex-M3 STM32 and also future releases of other ARM mcu as well as other non-ARM mcus, here is going to be what you can call ‘Blink’ example.

Before starting, you have to compile this code along with Xduino platform libraries and load it to the board you are using. Once loaded then you can disconnect the board from the computer then connect one wire of an LED to PB7 (you can change this to other Pin on your board, make sure to also change the code) and the other to ground appropriately. Hit reset on your board and the LED should blink.

/* Xduino library initialization */
#include “main.h”

int LedPin = PB7; // as labelled on your ARM Cortex-M3 board

int main(void)
{

doInit(); //Initialize
while(1) //loop this block
{
        digitalWrite(LedPin,HIGH);
        delay(200);
        digitalWrite(LedPin,LOW);
        delay(200);
}

}

Xduino v0.11 to be released soon

Following the release of initial Xduino v0.1 and after receiving some feedback we are ready to announce that Xduino v0.11 will be released soon. The example on ARM Cortex-M3 page has been updated to reflect what users can expect from the new release.

The following functions are available for compatibility with Arduino platform:

Digital I/O:
pinMode()
digitalRead()
digitalWrite()

Misc functions:
delay()
delayMicroseconds()

Serial functions – (identical for Serial1 – Serial5):
Serial1.begin()
Serial1.read()
Serial1.print()
Serial1.println()
Serial1.available()

Comments/suggestions/requests are more than 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.
