McuOnEclipse Components: 29-Dec-2022 Release

Iā€™m pleased to announce a new release of the McuOnEclipse Processor Expert components, available on SourceForge.

šŸ’” Not using Processor Expert? No worries, I have you covered. The source code of many components are hosted on GitHub:
https://github.com/ErichStyger/McuOnEclipseLibrary

I have reduced the number of Processor Expert component releases, as I’m using it mostly for legacy projects. Because of the silicon shortage, the library and components have been extended to parts which are available on the market, for example Espressif ESP32 and Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040. So beside of smaller bug fixes, the biggest change is about supporting these devices.

From the release notes (see GitHub for all the changes):

  • FreeRTOS with realloc() support (needed for the upcoming lvgl v9 release)
  • FreeRTOS support for aggressive gcc optimizations
  • FXOS8700 supports now disabling the magnetometer sensor
  • Extended RGBW support for SK6812/WS2812B
  • SSD1306 OLED extended support: incremental screen update, speeding up I2C operations and support for partial bitmap drawing

While the Processor Expert components itself are considered legacy, they have a new life in McuLib project on GitHub. Many components are used to generate static code, and the McuLib is used in many of our projects. The library with a set of middleware on GitHub covers STM32, NXP i.MX/Kinetis/LPC/HC08/S32K, Raspberry Pi, Nordic, ESP32 and RISC-V micro controllers. As a cross-platform library, the Eclipse, Visual Studio Code and bare make and cmake environments are supported.

Happy Coding šŸ™‚

  1. I know it is a legacy project, but I was a bit surprised to see the readme.txt file. Didn’t you jump on the markdown bandwagon?
