How to create a thread. Creating a new thread is the most common development task when using an RTOS, this is how it is done in ChibiOS/RT. MCU specific!! Lets use some power of the Chibios. Chibios has its own plugin inside the Chibistudio. Here’s a quick tutorial on how I created a new project in ChibiStudio preview 6. Brief: I used the STM32F4 Discovery Board for this example.

Note that the memory allocated to myThread is statically defined and cannot be reused. It is from the main thread that the other threads are usually created.

chubios You will see both user LEDs flashing with an one second period, the green LED duty cycle can be adjusted using the potentiometer, the blue LED duty cycle is hcibios by the temperature and is driven by the STM32 internal sensor.
Windows users simply have to use the installers, just make sure that the directories containing arm-none-eabi-gcc. A list of compatible devices is available in the OpenOCD documentationmore exactly here. The demo is located under.
How to create a thread
Create an eclipse directory in your home and unpack the archive there. You may download the JRE from here. This thread executes tutoria, main function at startup. They uttorial downloads for Linux, Mac and Windows.

What this guide does not cover This guide will not enter into details of common system tasks like and not limited to: A static thread can be started by invoking chThdCreateStatic as shown in this example:.
More Articles and Guides More articles and guides are available on the technical wiki. The forums is the best place, registration required.
Note that the memory is not freed when the thread terminates but when the thread final status is collected by the spawning thread. Products Downloads Documentation Articles Licensing. Make sure you have an updated version. Installing applications unless a special procedure is required. The application demonstrates the use of the following components:. By pressing the user button the test suite is activated and the output is transmitted over the serial port 1 N An RS levels translator.
The debugger unit is also usable separately. More Articles and Guides More articles and guides are available on the technical wiki. This thread has the lowest priority in the system so it runs only when the other threads in the system are sleeping.
ChibiOS free embedded RTOS – Getting started with the STM32F4-Discovery and ChibiOS
Now a complete example:. The result of what is described here can also be downloaded chubios a single package called ChibiStudio which includes the toolchain and all ChibiOS demos already imported into a workspace.
Make sure that the path C: Using a Logic Analyzer you can monitor the SPI output, the demo periodically transmits eight 16 bits words, each one representing a sample taken by the ADC.
Try the video tutorials and guides on Play Embedded. In general any probe supporting a decent GDB server is usable. The demo code can be tutorail here. Now you have a complete working RTOS supporting the STM32F4, strip the test suite code from the Makefile you won’t need it and start experimenting modifying the file main.
The memory is allocated from the specified heap and the thread is started. Its use is very simple:. This extension is required to use a remote GDB server for debugging.
The total size and the alignment problems are handled inside the macro, you only need to specify the pure and simple desired stack size. Enter your search terms Submit search form. Enter your search terms Submit search form. Eclipse will ask you a directory for its initial workspace, make it point to the ChibiOS root directory you may have as many workspaces you want, keep this for latermake sure to select the check box or it will ask you again each time.
Board features This board is impressive when compared to the cost. Try the video tutorials and guides on Play Embedded. I bought the one in the picture here. Java Runtimeyou probably already have this installed. Windows users just have to use the installer. If you don’t need to debug but just want to upload the code on the board you may use the ST Visual Programmer tool. This macro reserves bytes of stack for the thread and space for all the required thread related structures.
The variable tp receives a pointer to the thread object, this pointer is often taken as parameter by other APIs. We will use it as workspace later. Linux users should follow the normal installation procedure for deb or rpm packages, of course it is also possible to build it from the source code.

The demo should run immediately after loading, if not then try disconnecting and reconnecting the board USB cable in order to reset it older versions of ST visual programmer do not run the program automatically.
