This week we worked in the presentation we did on Friday, it was good but it missed some focus to embedded systems.
We started working in the software. Each student is responsible for a STM32 board witch is really nice, we can go home with the board \o/ (of course we need to return it at the end of the course). We are working with FreeRTOS, a real time open source operating system. Now we need to turn on a led from the board, start clocks, interrupt vector and others little things. My led isn’t turning on yet but it will
Today (26/02), me and my group met to choose the components (Tutobot group).
We searched about the microcontroller with an FPGA, the SmartFusion from Actel, but it is expensive and we have constraints of cost. So we decided not to used it. Tomorrow we will meet again to finish this search about the components.
In the afternoon I worked in the PCB (class homework, not to Tutobot), I almost finished the schematics of it, next step I am going to try routing (we need to finish it to Saturday night).
