hello all from edmonton, alberta

Iron

Preference to vendor's ide tools

PIC mcu - intermediate level

good lecture sorry I missed it.

Iron

Have been exposed to both C and assemby but not an expert at either.

Iron

Industrial, 6801, 8080, 8048, 8051, Z8, 6811, PIC16. 

Iron

I used a 8051 MCU over 10 years ago. The SoC I am doing right now use ARM Cortex-M3. I am trying to learn about the latest developments in the MCU world.

Iron

catching up after work

 

Iron

Good introduction presentation Warren. Thanks.

Iron

I have more experience with assembly, but its difficult to maintain, and even more difficult to port a design to a new platform.

Iron

But most of our developers prefer using a make environment to build and 3rd party tools for debugging.

Iron

We have started using the Eclipse IDE for a Linux-based design.

Iron

Intel 8051 and derivatives (legacy product), ARM core (latest designs)

Iron

I work for a medical device manufacturer, specifically in vital signs monitoring.

Iron

Hello from Beaverton, Oregon. I have meetings every day this week when the class is taking place, so I will be working through the archived material as I am able.

Iron

Thanks Mr Miller, I use Microchip 16 series with c language like MCC18And an evaluation board 7 from Microelektronica.

I'm familiarized with the Motorola MCU

Iron

@WarrenM >Bob Loy- I will go back and listen to the audio. Maybe I was speaking too close to the Mic...
Actually, when Lauren took over to announce the live chat, same problem. So it wasn't you!

Iron

@ucschmidt- Good to know. Thanx.

Iron

I'm in Communications Design...

Iron

@Warren....the audio was clear...it isn't always

Iron

OK bye for me then. I've got a meeting. Thanks for the class.

jjrochow- I will typically stay on till all questions are answered. We usually are done at the top of the hour...

Iron

Warren: Are you done here at 3pm EDT?

Thank you Warren and all. Join you tomorrow.

Iron

Sathyakam- Another differentiation between micro-Ps and MCU is peripherals. It used to be a micro-P had no peripherals on the chip, that distinction is less now, but the purpose of the peripherals still helps differentiate them. MCU peripherals tend towards control applicaiton and micro-P peripherals tend towards human interaction. The ARM processors, especially those used in tablets, are relly blurring this distinction.

Iron

Hope to 'see' you all during classes for the rest of the week!

Iron

I always thought of a MPU as just the processor, wether running from internal or external memory. An MCU has an MPU and additional peripherals like A/D converters, timers, etc.

 

Iron
That's a good description too.

Bob Loy- I will go back and listen to the audio. Maybe I was speaking too close to the Mic...

Iron

Sathyakam, don't feel bad. I had to google MCU myself, just to be sure what I was thinking it meant was what this class was referring to.

Iron

Any other questions? Thanx for all your comments. It really helps me plan for my next class...

Iron

@Lauren Muskett - Just one quick note - The microphone today was full of pops and crackles, haven't had this problem in 3 previous DN webinars I've taken ...

Iron

Jennifer and Warren and jjrochow.  That's not a bad idea -- it's simple:  Just ask users to preface their questions with a ? mark.  Spanish speaking users have used this method for centuries (I think).

Gold

I always thought of a MPU as just the processor, wether running from internal or external memory. An MCU has an MPU and additional peripherals like A/D converters, timers, etc.

 

Iron

Good lecture. The classes on iTunes and from MIT are a nice addition (ALU function).

jjrochow- Yep, it does get more difficult over time to make a distinction between MCUs and MPUs. I tend to just say MCU unless it has no on-chip storage and then I say MPU...

Iron

Sounds good convention to use "?" for the questions.. Thank you for the answer WarrenM and 78RPM as well..

Iron

@Sathyakam, again, Check out the Digi-Key Design  News class Feb 18 to 22 on Choosing a Microcontroller Architecture.  I think the first lecture on audio answers this question.

Gold

IMHO, the differences between MCUs and CPUs are merely the name these days.

Sathyakam- Not an naive question at all. MCUs tend to have the code stored on-chip. MPUs tend to run from external memory (DDR SRAM or Flash). Probably a bit of an over simplification, but should work in 80-90% of the cases...

Iron

How about all questions to me use a "?" at the beginning. When I respond I will use the askers name as the prefix.

Iron

If you need to look at ARM docs, their website has so much information you will need months to go through it all.

Ok. I would like to ask this (may be it is naive to ask here..) What is the difference between Micro processor and Micro controller? I see most of the micro controllers are aimed at Embedded systems where as Micro processors  are seen mostly in desktop kind of computers.

Iron

Hello, Jennifer, jjrochow raises an interesting point at Monday July 29, 2013 2:48:56 PM  Is it possible to have a two-section window for general comments and questions that require an answer?

Gold

For hardware questions, Maxfield's book is great.

Digi-Key: There ought to be separate posting windows for comments and questions vs answers.

Thank you all for this great lecture. I am looking forward to the other classes the rest of this week. I too will be looking at some of the previous classes to do some catching up.

Iron

Thanks WarrenM,

You did a great lecture for me, thanks a lot.

Iron

Warren: The problem with missing questions is the format of this live chat. It allows for noise, like this comment to be at the same priority level as questions and answers.

Yes- check out other Digi-Key Design classes for related topics. Choosing a Microcontroller Architecture would be a good one to review...

Iron

Thank Warren and Lauren.

Iron

Let me know if I have missed you question. They are flying by fairly quickly..

Iron

Sherlock- ARM based MCUs are available from just about every MCU suppliers these days so a choise of ARM doesn't lock you into a small set of suppliers like it did several years ago. Tools are robust and lots of support is available too. It is a good all around choice- but we will talk more about this on Friday. It is actually a complex topic.

Iron

Thanks, jjrochow@ra.rockwell.com

Gold

Thank you Warren, 78RPM, jjrochow. I wil go thru the material.

Iron

@Sathyakam, Check out the Digi-Key Design  News class Feb 18 to 22 on Choosing a Microcontroller Architecture.  I think the first day slides or so will answer your question.

Gold

Sathyakam: CPUs and ALUs are parrallel units and thus with pipelining, they are in different stages and more than one instruction is exceuting at once.

Sathyakam- When we get into pipelines tomorrow we will see cases where the MCU is in all thre of these states at the same time! Good question.

Iron

"It is difficult to go wrong with an ARM based MCU"?? What's your mean? Ok, maybe friday let me know.

Iron

Sathyakam- Yep an 8-bit MCU typically has an 8-bit ALU and 8-bit data bus. (this isn't always the case however so you need to check to make sure.

Iron

From the presentation there are Fetch, Decode and Execute stages of CPU. Does CPU always be in any one of these stages? OR can it be performing these stages in parellel?

Iron

78RPM: The source code for your C compiler will do what you ask.  You can look at it, if you can find it.  If the chip has a GCC compiler, it will be available.

FJGalan- Yep we will talk about peripherals tomorrow! They are an important part of the overall MCU architecture. Todays class was really focused on the CPU as you point out...

Iron

thank you Warren. I'am EE by trade just getting into MCU and embeddeed systems with cross discipline BS degree and ME in Systems. I'll focus on these courses and hands-on with the current project I assigned to. Thanks.

78RPM: Generally the data sheets are not enough..you need a programmers' manual for the architecture.

Serlock-

On Friday we will use some specific MCU architectures (Renessas for example) so that may help you. It is difficult to go wrong with an ARM based MCU.

Iron

When we say 8 bit or 16 bit or 32 bit MCU, what does it mean? Is it the width of the Data bus or the Address bus?

Iron

Thanks, WarrenM. will do

Gold

@jjrochow@ra.rockwell.com -- can you give me any leads for study? Would that be the datasheets?

Gold

78RPM- Yep you can call assembly from C. For the PIC there are some good app notes on just how to do this. Check out the Microchip web site and search for calling assembly or something similar...

Iron

Well, the class is good introduction to CPU, but MCU have an important component more; the I/O specific hardware (timers, UARTs, SPI, I2C, etc).

 

Iron

Thank Warren and Lauren.

Iron

@78RPM

 

Most compilers have an #asm directive, I think you can do it like that.

 

Some have specific memory registers to do that.

 

Iron

78RPM: The calling conventions depend on the register set and how they are used on a particular MCU architecture.

Hi Warren,

Can you give me some idea about different of them MIPS(PIC32), Cortex-M3&4 and Ressena archetecture? I already bough their EVU board since we want to select one kind MCU for our next generation products. For me I think ARM cortec-M is best choice.

Iron

Mahmood- Yep DMA will come up tomorrow!

Iron

@Dev.khan: The live chat window is directly below Warren's picture.  Just type and post.

Gold

Can anyone recommend a good course for programming uC and real-time embedded & computing systems?  I'm currently thinking about signing up for a computer science course in Programming CMPSC201 for Engineers with C+ Development and implementation of algorithms in a procedure-oriented language, with emphasis on numerical methods for engineering problems" as PSU campus. thanks

JJrchow- Good point on the arrows. I will add numbers next time. It does make it easier to understand the sequence.

Iron

Dumb question here: How can I call an assembly language routine from a C program? Mostly using PIC 8-bit and 16-bit. Is there a generic answer or does it depend on vendor?

Gold

thanks, enjoued the posts, now need to iron out the audio issue on my pc

RTOS was the class 2 weeks ago..check the links to the right.

BadHabit- Is your bad habit snow boarding? I'm the other Warren Miller...

Iron

Can you include DMA in next lessons?

Iron

Warren, Jennifer, Lauren and everybody else.

Thabk you,

Iron

Thank you Warren.

Iron

Thanks Mr. Miller, of to work now.

Iron

Bob- Good point on the architecture example I show on slide 6. Many use a Harvard architecture but not all do. Some MCUs allow execution from SRAM so you can easily modify code.

Iron

What is the link for Live Chat window ??

Iron

Coursera are good class, but is hard maintain the ritm sugered by the instructor,

(I you need graduation in course).

 

Iron

will we have something abou RTOS?

Iron

What is the link for Live Chat window ??

Iron

Thank you  very much

When did you stop filming skiers and get into mcu's?
Iron

Warren, on slide 13 and 14, it would be better to number the arrows to show the order they execute; especially so for slide 14. Thanks.

Thank you Warren and Lauren !

Iron

Thank you Warren and Lauren

Suggestion to the moderator: My company blocks the streaming Flash audio at the firewall and I used to get around the issue with my Android phone.  But since Flash is no longer supported on Android, that avenue no longer works.  It would be great if a streaming audio service that is supported on Android (and iPhone & Windows) could be used.  Thanks.
