Embedded Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) Basics

Embedded systems are microcontroller-based systems that are designed to perform specific functions such as reading sensor data, responding to external events, communicating with other systems, controlling processes, etc. The tricky part is to make the distinction of what exactly qualifies such a system as real-time. Aren't all embedded systems operating in real-time? In order for

STM32 Bootloader Design – Part 2

In the first post of this series, we covered the basic ideas behind creating an STM32 bootloader. Today we will focus on the application code and generate output, that our bootloader code will be able to process. The application code is very simple - it inits one pin at output and toggles it after some

STM32 Bootloader Design – Part 1

We already learned what a bootloader is and why it is needed in this article. Today we will start developing our own bootloader. For this particular example, we will be using STM32F411 discovery board and FT2232H mini module. The project is based on ARM Keil MDK. Before we start coding, here is some theory. The
