Thanks you Charles

Iron

Sorry I missed the live. Will catch the archives

Thank you Charles for this lecture.

Are any of you using IPv6 in embedded applications yet?

We are, sometimes.

Just a round-robin multi-tasker running Forth but not a real RTOS.

Iron

I have not used an RTOS for 3 decades since I worked for Control Data a long time ago.

What RTOS (if any) have any of you used?

I have not used any RTOS yet.

Iwill be using the KwikStik but will not have the add-on accelerometer.

Iron

For those of you who have checked, yes the KWIKSTIK doesn't come with an accelerometer on-board. 
We will use the TWRPI-MMA845XQ add-on board. How many will be following with the physical KWIKSTIK board?

I do not have the board.

Thank you Charles and Rob. It was great presentation.

Iron

quest. Is real time feedback the main difference between a programmed uc and RTOS?

Iron

Thanks all!! Off to wrap up the slides for the rest of the week - see you tomorrow!!!

Iron

Thanks to Charles, Rob, Digi-Key and IEEE

Good afternoon. Exng late

Great, so I will use the accelerometer simulator for this week.

Iron

Great! Thank you Charles!

Iron

Yes! I am writing an accelerometer simulator so you can build the app without it.

Iron

When will I need the accelerometer? I have the kwikstik in hand (ordered overnight). I would rather not rush the next delivery. Is it possible to simulate with buttons?

 

Iron

@bit_slicer - yes iMX6 is a cool processor!

 

Iron

Going to meeting, see you tomarrow for defining tasks and elements.

Iron

Yes @Willyh - will try to get all up later today or first thing tomorrow.

Iron

THANKS YOU .... CAN YOU POST THE SLICE IN ADANVANCE FOR THE OTHER 4 DAYS

Iron

UDOO has a Freescale iMX6 along with the Atmel SAM3X8E found on the Arduino Due.  Best of both worlds.

Iron

@simlastik, well I stand corrected. Had not heard of Duinos

Gold

The TWRPI accelerometer board plugs into a port on the back of the KWIKSTIK

 

Iron

I have heard good things about Duinos - a freeRTOS port for arduino http://code.google.com/p/duinos/

 

Iron

I missed your lecture. I had audio trouble. Hope to catch you tomorrow. thanks

Iron

@simlastik, Arduino is not suited to any OS. You should consider Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone

Gold

?Charles, does a programmed MCU qualify as an RTOS?

Iron

mRlu2012 - yes, the BSP will be different and I will show you how

Iron

Why would one use an RTOS over a cooperative multitasker, like the one used by Z-World?

Iron

Thanks Charles, Rob, and Digi-Key (& IEEE).

Iron

@Charles,

Will I be able to follow along with your code, using my K40 Tower?

Thank you,

Iron

Thanks Charles and all involved

Iron

I am going to purchase the accelerometer... how does it connect to the kwikstik?

 

Iron

Charles, can you recommend some RTOS (free or commercial) that can run on Arduino platform? Thanks.

Iron

Ah! Coffee in hand!
So far I don't see any questions that have not been already answered by your peers (thanks all!) - any quesitons that I have missed??

Iron

Thanks! Very interesting presentation.

 

Iron

looking forward to more detail RTOS examples

 

Iron

Thank you Charles, Rob, and Digi-Key.

Iron

Thank you Charles!

Iron

Can I get started without the accelerometer?

Iron

Thank you. Good presentation. See you tomorrow.

Iron

@Charles

I know some people who have developed theier own in house RTOS code for the Atmel Atmega line of uC . Any thoughts on this?

Iron

Thanks, Rob

Caffee, good idea!

Iron

Thank you; looking forward to tomorrow.

 

Iron

Thanks Charles, Great topic and delivary. Interesting stuff.

Good introduction to RTOS!!

Thank you.

Iron

Very nice lecture, thanks Charles, and Rob

Iron

Thanks Charles, Rob & Digikey.

Iron

Not using IPV6 at this time

Blogger

We're now on slide 18.

Blogger

We're now on slide 17.

Blogger

our systems are in the process of being converted to accepting IPv6, but are not currently configured for the switchover (hopefully some time in the next 9-12 months)

We're now on slide 16.

Blogger

Not using IPV6 yet..

Iron

Not using IPv6 yet.

Iron

IPv6 is becoming hard to avoid

Iron

CJ's? never used IPv6.

So far I have only supported IPv4.  I was wondering when the right time would be to support IPv6

Iron

Used it previously

 

Iron

Not yet,  IPV4 currently.

Iron

No applications with IPv6

Iron

No current plans for using IPv6.

Iron

Not using IPv6 yet, but planning to.

Iron

Not designing with embedded ethernet yet, but I expect to in the future.

Iron

No plans for IPv6 yet. Not using it yet.

Iron

We're now on slide 15.

Blogger

No current plans for IP v6

Iron

Yes, would need IP embedded support

Gold

Yes we are looking at ip6.

Iron

Charles' question:

Are any of you using IPv6 in embedded applications yet?

Blogger

We're now on slide 14.

Blogger

It would greatly help if the information about the hardware and software could have been made available in order for us to be able to purchase them in time for the class. After or during the lecture we will be able to play with it.

Iron

worked with uCOS II

 

Iron

VxWorks is another RTOS. 

Iron

I think PIC BASIC PRO helped me construct an RTOS for a PIC MCU I designed a control PCB for.

Iron

Not used any RTOS but have herd of all of these.

@ Charles :  A FreeRTOS session would be interesting

Iron

Yes, I would certainly be interested in seeing a class on the FreeRTOS at some point in time. It is often a great learning experience for me to look at various tools like this and see some of the differences in capabilities.

Used WindRiver's

 

Iron

Im looking into developin a RTOS for 1st time

Iron

FreeRTOS

u/C

ThreadX

Iron

The more te better FreeRTOS will be a good follow up to this

Iron

Recently got some exposure to RTXC, very much a novice though

Iron

Propriatary, uC/OS-II

Iron

I would probably attend a FreeRTOS class.

Iron

We're now on slide 13.

Blogger

Haven't used an RTOS in a product yet. Did attend the previous Design News classs which used Micrium. Would also like to see class with FreeRTOS.

Iron

I haven't used an RTOS yet

Would be interested in FreeRTOS

Iron

No rtos yet, use Z-world cooperative multitasker 15 years ago

 

Iron

Used A primative one that our group wrote.

Iron

little or no RTOS use 

Iron

TI SysBIOS, would like to use FreeRTOS and MQX

Iron

I've begun attempting to implement FreeRTOS on the raspPi, but have not used others

designed/wrote specialized RTOS for 8-bit MCU long ago

Iron

Fisrt time user of RTOS

Iron

Way back with Forth, don't remember which as it came on the chips.

Iron

used lots of manufacturer provided rtos

Iron

Have never used RTOS.  but want to learn it

 

Never shipped a product with an RTOS

Iron

I've used MQX and FreeRTOS each a little bit. Most of my development is bare metal.

Iron

I have  not used a RTOS.

Custom RTOS developed at the company I work for.

Iron

I have not used one yet.

Iron

I haven't used an RTOS

in the way past we used QNX

Iron

We're now on slide 12.

Blogger

first time RTOS user

 

Iron

have not used

 

Platinum

I used uC/OS back when it was free; it worked very well with very little suppurt required.

Iron

Have not used an RTOS

Gold

wrote my own on Z80 many moons ago, later used QNX on a different project

Iron

Have not used any RTOS yet.

Iron

Green Hills

ThreadX

Linux

Iron

FreeRTOS, Micrium uC/OS-II and OS-III

Iron

I have never used an RTOS.

Iron

Have not used an RTOS yet.

Iron

Fisrt time user of RTOS

Iron

TANSTAAFL - there aint no such thing as a free lunch

Iron

Looks like there is an initial version of FreeRTOS for the Raspberry Pi:

http://www.osrtos.com/rtos/freertos

Iron

Charles' question:

What RTOS (if any) have any of you used?

Blogger

I would like Raspberry Pi

Iron

76 and partly sunny here in Melbourne FL.  Come on down.

Iron

We're now on slide 11.

Blogger

What mean TANSTAALFL?

Iron

@Flux_Capacitor

Charles mentioned that some of Freescale's "Freedom" FRDM-Kxxxx boards can be used instead, see below in the chat. US$13-$30, also from DigiKey.

Iron

We're now on slide 10.

Blogger

We're now on slide 9.

Blogger

@Flux_Capacitor

I don't think Freescale licenses MQX to run on non-Freescale processors, but I could be wrong.

Iron

First time to hear of mqx.

Iron
@78RPM I got his message thank you
 

 

Iron

We're now on slide 8.

Blogger

I'm wondering if we can follow along with a different board such as Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone.  

I don't have HW yet.  I'll be playing catch-up for a while.

Iron

I will get one later.

 

Iron

Hello from Montreal (forgot to hit POST)

 

 

Iron

We're now on slide 7.

Blogger

will get one later

Iron

@vic14 See Zwilrich's' answer to your question prior to class begin. "They are the same.  The -ND means No Discount."

Gold

interested in getting one 

Iron

I don't have that HW but will not stop me from following the slides !   ;-)

 

Iron

I will get the board

 

Iron

I will likely get one later on.

Iron

Don't have a demo board at this time.

Iron

Interested in trying the class with the board depending on if it will still be useful after the 30 day trial for CodeWarrior expires

We're now on slide 6.

Blogger

I may get the board and try it.

do not have the board

Iron

Not following with hardware.

Iron

I will not.  I will implement on a different development board.

Iron

I'll be interested in getting one.

Iron

not here - i do not have a board, will get one in the near fututre

Iron

I will decide to get KWIKSTIK after hearing the presentations

Iron

considering getting onee

Iron

I will not have a KWIKSTIK to follow along during the seminar.  I have another tower board that I will investigate offline.

Iron

I will get the board.

Iron

hardly any audio on Firefox, can't get anything on IE Windows 7 64 bit.  Bye.

Iron

I may use the kwikstick to help follow along. I've done bare metal development on Kinetis K6x/K7x. But not much experience with MQX.

Iron

I don't have a quickstick but I have a K40 tower, which has the accellerometer included.

Iron

Would like to get one but don't think my company will pay for it

Iron

No plans to use the KWIKSTIK currently

Iron

Don't have board yet

Iron

CJ's? demo board will be here wensday. 35$

I ordered it at Freescale Direct

I'll probably try the software for now and see if I want the demo board.

Gold

Will not be using a physical board.

Iron

Don't have a Kwickstick. May get one down the road.

Iron

@Zwilrich thank you so much

Iron

I have a board and am downloading the software right now

 

Iron

Just got the KwikStik.

Iron

I will be following with physical KWIKSTIK 

Iron

I may get a Kwikstik in the future.

Iron

using KL25 or UDOO (with i.Mx)

I have no audio bar to klick play on:(

I will not be following along as I do not have the board.

 

Iron

Will likely followup in near future with the KWIKSTIK board.

Iron

Have Kwikstik, will use offline

Iron

This is more for informational purposes

Iron

will get a board

 

Iron

Charles' question:

For those of you who have checked, yes the KWIKSTIK doesn't come with an accelerometer on-board. 
We will use the TWRPI-MMA845XQ add-on board. How many will be following with the physical KWIKSTIK board?

Blogger

@Vic14 They are the same.  The -ND means No Discount.

Iron

audio is good here.

 

Iron

there are 2 modeles  KWIKSTIK-40-ND or KWIKSTIK-40, which one are we using?

Iron

Digi-Key has 8 in stock @ $35 each.

Gold

We're now on sldie 5.

The add-on accelerometer is the TWRPI-MMA845XQ

Iron

-Be sure to click 'Today's Slide Deck' under Special Educational Materials above right to download the PowerPoint for today's session.

Blogger

Good day all!!! I look forward to talking to all of you in just over an hour!

@wcarlisle - Yes you can certainly follow along with any of the Freedom boards. I will be using mostly the lightweight components of MQX and the MQX-Lite that runs on the KL processors will do nicely.


One correction that I will repeat during the lecture - there is a misprint. The KWIKSTIK does NOT have an accelerometer on board. OOPS. This series was based on the Design with Freescale class that I did for Freescale and the units for that class had the TWRPI add-on accelerometer module (available from Digi-Key for $25) already attached.  We will look at how we can simulate that later in the week.

I do not have a KWIKSTIK dev board, and probably can't get one by Monday. I do however have a Freescale Kinetis L FRDM-KL25Z dev board, and a Freescale FRDM-KL46Z. Would I possibly be able to follow along with either of those?

Iron

Good to see you again Charles.

Slides please!

Hi,

Which board are we going to be using KWIKSTIK-40-ND or KWIKSTIK-40?

Thanks
