C6808 FAE

C6808 is Flexis-able

|

FAEs who are planning to introduce their clients to the MC9S08QE128 Flexis part should contact fae@bytecraft.com for more information about our support.

Flexis' paged memory model can benefit from a compiler's calculations. Optimization during linking allows a compiler to distinguish between different types of cross-page references.

eTPU_C

Updated eTPU_C FAQ

We've updated our FAQ. Take a look.

Remember to check the depot to see if you're eligible for updates, or enquire about extended support if your standard 1-year support has expired.

eTPU_C

eTPU_C version 1.0.7

We're pleased to announce the availability of eTPU_C version 1.0.7. eTPU_C is a high-performance software development tool for the Freescale eTPU Enhanced Time Processing Unit.

Our eTPU_C Code Development System is the ideal solution for creating eTPU programs. It deals with eTPU's shifting subinstruction fields, entry tables, and channel hardware in intuitive C-language programming.

SXC

Award-winning design uses SXC

Jens Altenberg's design for a fantastic autonomous airplane uses software generated by the SXC Code Development System. He has won third place in Parallax's SX Design Contest.

For more information, see Sponsorship.

MPC

MPC version 2.0

We're pleased to announce the availability of MPC version 2.0. MPC is a high-performance software development tool for the Microchip PICmicro family of microcontrollers.

The long-awaited MPC features 24- and 32-bit integer and IEEE floating point math support. Full LOCAL and SPECIAL memory support make programming very intuitive and very efficient.

Featured in C/C++ Users' Journal again!

The second part of "The Embedded C Extension to C" is now online at the C/C++ Users' Journal. Walter and his co-authors Marcel Beemster, Hans van Someren, and Willem Wakker have written an article on the ISO/IEC TR (technical report) 18037, "Extensions for the Programming Language C to Support Embedded Processors".

eTPU_C

The Design of eTPU functions

We've posted a general overview of ETPU_functions, our implementation of eTPU_C channel functions in C. If you're considering eTPU for your design, learn how eTPU_C can make programming for eTPU intuitive. The paper discusses the specific programming style for ETPU_functions, and the facilities available for exposing eTPU channel functions to the host processor program.

C6805 C6808

Moving from HC05 to HC08

|

With development support for the RS08, it makes sense to move old designs from the venerable HC05 to one of the current cores. This article gives some pointers on moving C6805 projects to C6808.
