Installing ST-Link v2 to flash STM32 targets on Linux

This guide is targeting Linux users and ST-Link v2 hardware. First, we are going to install the necessary libraries and build tools: sudo apt-get install git make cmake libusb-1.0-0-dev sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential Now, we will download and build the ST-Link utilities: cd ~myusername mkdir stm32 cd stm32 git clone https://github.com/stlink-org/stlink cd stlink cmake

4Bit Division Verilog Example on Zynq FPGA

This small sketch demonstrates the four bit division operation on Zybo FPGA board. Zybo is a small and cheap board from Digilent, equipped with powerful Xilinx’s Zynq chip. This sketch was implemented to use only the PL, but neither PS nor ARM. The usage is simple: on switches 3:0 select the upper four bits of

Installing ST-Link v2 to flash STM32 targets on Linux – old version

This article has a newer version. This guide is targeting Linux users and ST-Link v2 hardware. First, we are going to install the necessary libraries and build tools: sudo apt-get install git make cmake libusb-1.0-0-dev sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential Now, we will download and build the ST-Link utilities: cd ~myusername mkdir stm32 cd stm32

Bare Metal STM32 Programming – LED Blink

Do you want to start STM32 programming? Get the Blue Pill which is featuring the powerful & cheap ARM Cortex-M3 32-bit microcontroller then, let’s go! We are going to build a LED blink app from scratch, using only the manual of the STM32F103C8T6 chip. The host platform used for this guide is Linux Mint 19.3.

Setting-up cross compiler and build tools for STM32

Here is an ARM cross-compiler tutorial for STM32 and other ARM-based microcontrollers, like Microchip’s SAM’s. What’s a cross compilation process? That is when you use a x86 machine to produce binary code for a different architecture, like ARM. The situation is similar when you use a Raspberry Pi (ARM CortexA) to build apps for STM32

Opening .msg Outlook files in Ubuntu or Linux Mint

Someone sent me an Outlook .msg file, and I just can’t open it in Linux Mint. So I did a little research and I found a solution. You need to have Mozilla Thunderbird installed, or any email client able to open .eml files, and the msgconvert tool, thanks to Matijs van Zuijlen. To install msgconvert,

Am trecut pe Linux

Am renunțat la Windows în favoarea Linux Mint. Am reușit să găsesc înlocuitori pentru majoritatea programelor care nu au port de Linux, iar unele exe-uri merg bine sub Wine.

New toy – ZYBO

The parcel arrived yesterday with the new toy. Together with The Zynq Book is a great start to learning embedded, and that from several points of view: digital design, FPGA, VHDL, Verilog, accelerators, multimedia processing embedded software for a ARM Cortex-A9 dual core platform Linux with all of it, from the boot process to the
