Create A Mixed C/C++ project for ARM with Eclipse Autotools


1.       Environment setup
Assuming that you installed and setup GCC for ARM (Linux x86). Else, reference here.
Be sure that you installed automake, autoconf, autoreconf. Else, you need install it.
To install Automake: sudo apt-get install automake
This also will install Autoreconf and Autoconf for you.
To check version of automake: automake --version.

"Train" problem with Dijkstra, Depth First Search and combinatorial algorithm (Java)


The local commuter railroad services a number of towns in Kiwiland.  Because of monetary concerns, all of the tracks are 'one-way.'  That is, a route from Kaitaia to Invercargill does not imply the existence of a route from Invercargill to Kaitaia.  In fact, even if both of these routes do happen to exist, they are distinct and are not necessarily the same distance!

The purpose of this problem is to help the railroad provide its customers with information about the routes.  In particular, you will compute the distance along a certain route, the number of different routes between two towns, and the shortest route between two towns.

Eclipse CDT no print out message to its console in Windows 64bit

How to fix it:

My environment is Windows 8, 64bit. Eclipse for Windows 64bit.
Either you install Mingw-w64 32bit or 64bit version (http://mingw-w64.sourceforge.net). Then you might face with the problem that Eclipse doesn't print out message to its console.
Assuming that you setup your environment correctly, but it seems that Eclipse does not recognize GCC in PATH environment variable.
So, In order to fix this issue, in your project, do:

F. Board configuration

Building Linux kernel image for ARM with Eclipse [Part 3]

D.  Build U-boot Boot loader Image

We will download the modified u-boot source code from Atmel. This version is more fit with AT91SAM family than the official u-boot version. In general, U-boot takes up for loading kernel image to RAM and setting up operation environment for kernel as well. 

Building Linux kernel image for ARM with Eclipse [Part 2]

C.  Build Linux kernel Image

     At first, we need to import the Linux kernel source code into the Eclipse IDE

Building Linux kernel image for ARM with Eclipse [Part 1]

I feel quite lazy to remember a lot Linux build commands while building Linux kernel image and also don't want to repeat to typing the build commands every time need to modify and rebuild the kernel image. So, I looked at a tool help to make build processes to be more user friendly. Eclipse IDE and its plug-ins are the great fit tools for this purpose.

In this article, I intend to setup needed environment for building the Linux kernel image for Atmel AT91SAM9260 SoC which is based on ARM926EJ-S core. The target board is Olimex SAM9-L9260. Host OS is Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit. There are some differences in setting up environment between Ubuntu 13.10 and previous versions.
A great thing here is all tools used in this project is free ^-^.

Some Take Notes in Programming for Windows CE/Mobile

Le Trung Thang, New Year 2012 

.NET compact framework in Windows CE / Mobile OS comes in with support for mobile devices which have limitation of resource: RAM size, CPU speed. So, there’re some tricks may be helpful in developing the applications for this operation system.

Telnet in Java

  Le Trung Thang, end of 2011 

Telnet is a network protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a bidirectional interactive text-oriented communications facility using a virtual terminal connection. User data is interspersed in-band with Telnet control information in an 8-bit byte oriented data connection over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) (soure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telnet).

FreeRTOS and Implementation of FAT file system FatFs on SD card

Le Trung Thang 2011

After building successful the application “Building an Application for AT91SAM7S withFreeRTOS RTOS and IAR”, in this article we will combine FatFs, a FAT file system module, with FreeRTOS to make an application with functions more diverse than
 FatFs is a generic FAT file system module for small embedded systems that can be ported to any underlying hardware. It has been architected with separate layers for hardware accesses. FatFS is compatible with Windows FAT12/16/32 file system (Figure 1).

Building an Application for AT91SAM7S with FreeRTOS RTOS and IAR

 Le Trung Thang 2011 

After ported success the FreeRTOS kernel to AT91SAM7S board, see: “Porting Real Time OS "FreeRTOS" to AT91SAM7S256 Evaluation board”. Now, we can start to create an application using FreeRTOS. The preparation tools, you can see at above article.

The first, you need download the demo project at here. Unzip downloaded file and go to folder Atmel\at91sam7s-ek\FreeRTOS-getting-started  and open file FreeRTOS- this getting-started.eww to start IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM IDE.
From demo project, you can edit the project hierarchy as your requirement.

Multiply Using Booth’s Algorithm

Booth's multiplication algorithm is a multiplication algorithm that multiplies two signed binary numbers in two's complement notation. The algorithm was invented by Andrew Donald Booth in 1951 while doing research on crystallography at Birkbeck College in Bloomsbury, London. Booth used desk calculators that were faster at shifting than adding and created the algorithm to increase their speed. Booth's algorithm is of interest in the study of computer architecture.

Some my philosophies in software development

Some my philosophies in software development

- You must understand thoroughly it first, then it will understand you.
- A new technology may not be better than a good design.
- Each system (Sw/Hw) always needs a particular environment operation to get best performance.
- In keeping with the philosophy that to understand a system you must first understand its parts.

And you ?

Threads and Callbacks in RMI

(from: http://www.cs.swan.ac.uk/~csneal/InternetComputing/ThreadCallBack.html)

7.1. Background

So far, all the RMI examples you have seen have been very straightforward - the client needs to invoke some service on a server, and is prepared to wait until the service has finished before proceeding. But what if the service will take some time, and the client wishes to get on with something else while it waits? Or if the activities of the server are to some degree independent of main function of the client? The first situation is often the case when dealing with GUI code - it is not considered good practice to freeze up a GUI while it performs some slow operation.
Also, suppose there are multiple clients - what happens if more than one tries to access the service at the same time? We will deal with this issue first, as it is the simplest.

Getting started IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM with AT91SAM7S256

Le Trung Thang 2011


Prepare tools:
- Software: IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM (www.iar.com).
- Hardware: AT91SAM7S EVALUATION BOARD and Jlink 7 (http://www.segger.com) debug board (see schematic at below).
Other alternation can be considered in case of you don’t have AT91SAM7S Evaluation Board could be OLIMEX SAM7-P256 Development Board (www.olimex.com).
I have not tested with Olimex board yet, but strong belive that it's able to work well with this demonstration project.
- Source code: Demo source code of this project can download here: SAM7s256-SourceCode.
