Byte Craft has for the last several months been developing new eTPU
support tools. The eTPU C Code Development System will continue to be
supported for use primarily in automotive engine controllers with
continuing support for eTPU2, new releases and updates.
The last few months we have be visiting customers and outlining some
directions we are adding to our support for the eTPU. Byte Craft is in
the release process of a separate eTPU based tool set that focuses on
other eTPU based applications. Essentially we have been looking at
The Freescale eTPU standard library and eTPU function sets were developed using Byte Craft tools. Copies of these tools are available as part of Byte Craft eTPU support.
There's only so much debugging information an LED or LCD display can report. What's worse, embedding debugging code in the executable can provoke misuse, while stripping it out can cause heisenbugs.
Your C compiler can help manage debugging information for you in a way that doesn't interfere with your product. Here's how:
What happens to high-level language programming when computer architecture changes? Walter Banks and Kirk Zurell recount the challenges of accommodating novel interrupt architectures in C for embedded systems.
The eTPU is an event driven processor. This paper looks at the implimentation challenges implimenting execution events on the mainstream embedded systems 8 bit processor comparing HC08/HCS08 architectures and the RS08.
