Hello, since I worked with the Yagarto Toolchain and LPC2378 in business, I wanted to build my own development board including this Controller. Now finally I finished the board design and got it here. I can contact the controller via JTAG and FlashMagic, which is very good. Now I of course want to start programming, but my big hurdle is to create a complete blank project. I downloaded the Yagarto Toolchain and went through the Tutorial, everything worked fine. But where to get a normal linker script and the startup code? And of course a make file? This seems to be very difficult, all I found up to now does not work properly. Also, is there any tutorial how to set up Eclipse a bit? I remember when I last worked with Eclipse/Yagarto, that I never had to add new code files to the make file. Unfortunately, this was a bit in the past and I just took over the project from another collegue, so I never cared about settings. Does anyone maybe got some answers for me? Thanks alot
Hallo Matthias, I had the same problem like you. I tested tool after tool (open source and commercial) to find something to start work with cortexM3 (STM32F10x) immediately. No chance. The reasons: no install package, no documentation, missing scripts for my device, no debug, no linker, no thumb2-compiler, specific debug-tools, expensiv, only 30 days test (to short) and, and, and. Then I found lots of simple example projects of different users here: http://www.stm32circle.com/projects/index.php I installed Ride7 and within one day my own test board was blinking. Next day I tested debug on the primer2 - OK. Ride supports most ARM7 and cortexM3 from NXP and ST. The hints: Specific JTAG-Rlink (Berlios?) and 32 k code limited or 900,-€ (acceptable, I think). Interesting: The Primer2 includes the Rlink on a second chip, debug-Communication occurs over SWD. But hover: Since one week I try to find a way, how to set up the ST-periph-lib for my board. Not simple.
