ARM Cortex-A5

Microchip SAMA5D2

Microchip SAMA5D3

There are ports to two Microchip SAMA5D3 boards:

  • Microchip SAMA5D3x-EK development boards. This is the port of NuttX to the Microchip SAMA5D3x-EK development boards (where x=1,3,4, or 5). These boards feature the Microchip SAMA5D3x microprocessors. Four different SAMA5D3x-EK kits are available

    The each kit consist of an identical base board with different plug-in modules for each CPU. All four boards are supported by NuttX with a simple reconfiguration of the processor type.

    STATUS. Initial support for the SAMA5D3x-EK was released in NuttX-6.29. That initial support was minimal: There are simple test configurations that run out of internal SRAM and extended configurations that run out of the on-board NOR FLASH:

    • A barebones NuttShell (NSH) configuration that can be used as the basis for further application development.

    • A full-loaded NuttShell (NSH) configuration that demonstrates all of the SAMA5D3x features.

    The following support was added in NuttX 6.30:

    • DMA support, and

    • PIO interrupts,

    And drivers for

    • SPI (with DMA support),

    • AT25 Serial Flash,

    • Two Wire Interface (TWI), and

    • HSMCI memory cards.

    NuttX-6.30 also introduces full USB support:

    • High speed device controller driver,

    • OHCI (low- and full-speed) and

    • EHCI (high-speed) host controller driver support.

    With NuttX-6.31, these additional drivers were added:

    • A 10/100Base-T Ethernet (EMAC) driver,

    • A 1000Base-T Ethernet (GMAC) driver,

    • A Real Time Clock (RTC) driver and integrated with the NuttX system time logic

    • /dev/random using the SAMA5D3x True Random Number Generator (TRNG),

    • A Watchdog Timer (WDT) driver,

    • A Timer/Counter (TC) library with interface that make be used by other drivers that need timer support,

    • An ADC driver that can collect multiple samples using the sequencer, can be trigger by a timer/counter, and supports DMA data transfers,

    • A touchscreen driver based on the special features of the SAMA5D3 ADC peripheral, An LCD controller (LCDC) frame buffer driver, and

    • A CAN driver (Testing of the CAN has been delayed because of cabling issues).

    Additional board configurations were added to test and demonstrate these new drivers including new graphics and NxWM configurations.

    These drivers were added in NuttX-6.32:

    • A PWM driver with DMA support

    • An SSC-based I2S driver

    • Support for Programmable clock outputs

    • NAND support including support for the PMECC hardware ECC and for DMA transfers.

    DBGU support was added in NuttX-7.2 (primarily for the SAMA5D3 Xplained board).

    NuttX-7.4 added support for the on-board WM8904 CODEC chip and for Tickless operation.

    Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

Microchip SAMA5D3 Xplained development board This is the port of NuttX to the Microchip SAMA5D3 Xplained development board. The board features the Microchip SAMA5D36 microprocessor. See the Microchip Website for additional information about this board.

STATUS. This port is complete as of this writing and ready for general use. The basic port is expected to be simple because of the similarity to the SAMAD3x-EK boards and is available in the NuttX 7.2 release.

Most of the drivers and capabilities of the SAMA5D3x-EK boards can be used with the SAMA5D3 Xplained board. The primary difference between the ports is that the SAMA5D3x-EK supports NOR FLASH and NuttX can be configured to boot directly from NOR FLASH. The SAMA5D3 Xplained board does not have NOR FLASH and, as a consequence NuttX must boot into SDRAM with the help of U-Boot.

Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

Microchip SAMA5D4

There is a port in progress on one Microchip SAMA5D4 board:

  • Microchip SAMA5D4-EK/MB development boards This is the port of NuttX to the Microchip SAMA5D4-MB Rev C. development board (which should be compatible with the SAMA5D4-EK). These boards feature the Microchip SAMA5D44 microprocessors with compatibility with most of the SAMA5D3 peripherals.

    STATUS. At the time of the release of NuttX-7.3, the basic port for the SAMA5D4-MB was complete. The board had basic functionality. But full functionality was not available until NuttX-7.4. In NuttX-7.4 support was added for the L2 cache, many security features, XDMAC, HSMCI and Ethernet integrated with XDMAC, the LCDC, TWI, SSC, and most of the existing SAMA5 drivers. Timers were added to support Tickless operation. The TM7000 LCDC with the maXTouch multi-touch controller are also fully support in a special NxWM configuration for that larger display. Support for a graphics media player is included (although there were issues with the WM8904 audio CODEC on my board). An SRAM bootloader was also included. Refer to the NuttX board README file for current status.

Development Environments: 1) Linux with native Linux GNU toolchain, 2) Cygwin/MSYS with Cygwin GNU toolchain, 3) Cygwin/MSYS with Windows native toolchain, or 4) Native Windows. All testing has been performed with the CodeSourcery toolchain (GCC version 4.7.3) in the Cygwin environment under Windows.

ARM Cortex-A8

Allwinner A10

These following boards are based on the Allwinner A10 have are supported by NuttX:

  • pcDuino v1. A port of NuttX to the pcDuino v1 board was first released in NuttX-6.33. See http://www.pcduino.com/ for information about pcDuino Lite, v1, and v2 boards. These boards are based around the Allwinner A10 Cortex-A8 CPU. This port was developed on the v1 board, but the others may be compatible:

    Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

    STATUS. This port was an experiment was was not completely developed. This configuration builds and runs an NuttShell (NSH), but only if a patch to work around some issues is applied. While not ready for “prime time”, the pcDuino port is functional and could the basis for a more extensive development. There is, at present, no work in progress to extend this port, however.

TI/Sitara AM335x

These following boards are based on the TI/Sitara AM335x are supported by NuttX:

  • Beaglebone Black. A port of NuttX to the Beaglebone Black board was first released in NuttX-7.28. This port was contributed by Petro Karashchenko. This board is based on the TI/Sitara AM3358 Cortex-A8 CPU running 1GHz.

    • NuttX-7.28. This initial port in NuttX-7.28 is very sparse. While not ready for prodcution use, the Beaglebone Black port is functional and will be the basis for a more extensive development. Additional work in progress to extend this port and more capable is anticipated in NuttX-7.29.

    • NuttX-9.0 CAN support was added. Clock Configuration was added.

    • NuttX-7.31. An LCD driver was added in NuttX-7.31.

    Refer to the Beaglebone Black board README file for further, up-to-date information.

ARM Cortex-A9

NXP/Freescale i.MX6

The basic port has been completed for the following i.MX6 board:

  • Sabre-6Quad. This is a port to the NXP/Freescale Sabre-6Quad board. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

    STATUS: The basic, minimal port is code complete and introduced in NuttX-7.15, but had not yet been tested at that time due to the inavailability of hardware. This basic port was verified in the NuttX-7.16 release, however. The port is still minimal and more device drivers are needed to make the port usable.

    Basic support of NuttX running in SMP mode on the i.MX6Q was also accomplished in NuttX-7.16. However, there are still known issues with SMP support on this platform as described in the README file for the board.

ARM Cortex-R4

TI/Hercules TMS570LS04xx

A port is available for the Texas Instruments Hercules TMS570LS04x/03x LaunchPad Evaluation Kit (LAUNCHXL-TMS57004) featuring the Hercules TMS570LS0432PZ chip.

Architecture support for the TMS570LS3137ZWT part was added in NuttX 7.25 by Ivan Ucherdzhiev. Ivan also added support for the TI Hercules TMS570LS31x USB Kit.

ARM Cortex-M0/M0+

nuvoTon NUC120

This is a port of NuttX to the nuvoTon NuTiny-SDK-NUC120 that features the NUC120LE3AN MCU.

STATUS. Initial support for the NUC120 was released in NuttX-6.26. This initial support is very minimal: There is a NuttShell (NSH) configuration that might be the basis for an application development. As of this writing, more device drivers are needed to make this a more complete port. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

Memory Usage. For a full-featured RTOS such as NuttX, providing support in a usable and meaningful way within the tiny memories of the NUC120 demonstrates the scalability of NuttX. The NUC120LE2AN comes in a 48-pin package and has 128KB FLASH and 16KB of SRAM. When running the NSH configuration (itself a full up application), there is still more than 90KB of FLASH and 10KB or SRAM available for further application development).

Static memory usage can be shown with size command:

NuttX, the NSH application, and GCC libraries use 34.2KB of FLASH leaving 93.8KB of FLASH (72%) free from additional application development. Static SRAM usage is about 1.2KB (<4%) and leaves 14.8KB (86%) available for heap at runtime. SRAM usage at run-time can be shown with the NSH free command:

You can see that 10.0KB (62%) is available for further application development.

Development Environments: 1) Linux with native Linux GNU toolchain, 2) Cygwin/MSYS with Cygwin GNU toolchain, 3) Cygwin/MSYS with Windows native toolchain, or 4) Native Windows. A DIY toolchain for Linux or Cygwin is provided by the NuttX buildroot package.

    • Four touchkeys.

  • Nucleo-L152RE. Board support for the Nucleo-L152RE was contributed by Mateusz Szafoni in NuttX-7.28. Available configurations include NSH, ADC, and PWM.

STATUS. Initial support for the STM32L-Discovery was released in NuttX-6.28. Addition (architecture-only) support for the STM32L152xC family was added in NuttX-7.21. Support for the Nucleo-L152RE was added in NuttX-7.28.

That initial STM32L-Discovery support included a configuration using the NuttShell (NSH) that might be the basis for an application development. A driver for the on-board segment LCD is included as well as an option to drive the segment LCD from an NSH “built-in” command. Refer to the STM32L-Discovery board README file for further information.

Memory Usage.

REVISIT: These numbers are out of date. Current NuttX sizing might be somewhat larger.

For a full-featured RTOS such as NuttX, providing support in a usable and meaningful way within the tiny memories of the STM32L152RBT6 demonstrates the scalability of NuttX. The STM32L152RBT6 comes in a 64-pin package and has 128KB FLASH and 16KB of SRAM.

Static memory usage can be shown with size command:

NuttX, the NSH application, and GCC libraries use 38.7KB of FLASH leaving 89.3B of FLASH (70%) free from additional application development. Static SRAM usage is about 1.2KB (<4%) and leaves 14.8KB (86%) available for heap at runtime.

SRAM usage at run-time can be shown with the NSH free command:

You can see that 9.9KB (62%) of SRAM heap is still available for further application development while NSH is running.

STMicro STM32 L15x/16x

(STM32 L1 “EnergyLite” Medium+ Density Family). Support for the STM32L152 and STM32L162 Medium+ density parts from Jussi Kivilinna and Sami Pelkonen was included in NuttX-7.3, extending the basic STM32L152x support. This is architecture-only support, meaning that support for the boards with these chips is available, but no support for any publicly available boards is included.

STMicro STM32 F0xx

(STM32 F0, ARM Cortex-M0). Support for the STM32 F0 family was contributed by Alan Carvalho de Assis in NuttX-7.21. There are ports to three different boards in this repository:

  • STM32F0-Discovery This board features the STM32 2F051R8 and was used by Alan to produce the initial STM32 F0 port. However, its very limited 8KB SRAM makes this port unsuitable for for usages. Contributed by Alan Carvalho de Assis in NuttX-7.21.

  • Nucleo-F072RB With 16KB of SRAM the STM32 F072RB makes a much more usable platform.

  • Nucleo-F091RC With 32KB of SRAM the STM32 F091RC this board is a great match for NuttX. Contributed by Juha Niskanen in NuttX-7.21.

STMicro STM32 L0xx

(STM32 L0, ARM Cortex-M0). Support for the STM32 FL family was contributed by Mateusz Sfafoni in NuttX-7.28. There are ports to two different STM32 L0 boards in the repository:

B-L072Z-LRWAN1 Contributed byMateusz Sfafoni in NuttX-7.28. Nucleo-L073RZ Contributed byMateusz Sfafoni in NuttX-7.28.

STMicro STM32 G0xx

(STM32 G0, ARM Cortex-M0+). Support for the STM32 FL family was contributed by Mateusz Sfafoni in NuttX-7.28. There are ports to two different STM32 L0 boards in the repository:

  • Nucleo-G071RB Initial support for Nucleo-G071RB was contributed by Mateusz Szafoni in NuttX-7.31. Refer to the board README file for further information.

  • Nucleo-G070RB Contributed by Daniel Pereira Volpato. in NuttX-8.2. Refer to the board README file for further information.

STATUS: Status for the STM32F0xx, STM32L0xx, and STM32G0xx is shown together since these parts share many drivers in common.

NuttX-7.21. In this initial release, the level of support for the STM32 F0 family is minimal. Certainly enough is in place to support a robust NSH configuration. There are also unverified I2C and USB device drivers available in NuttX-7.21.

NuttX-7.28 Added support for GPIO EXTI. From Mateusz Sfafoni.

NuttX-7.29 Added an SPI driver. From Mateusz Sfafoni.

NuttX-7.30 Added ADC and I2C drivers. From Mateusz Szafoni. Add AES and RND drivers for the L0. From Mateusz Szafoni. Add support for HS148 for L0. From Mateusz Szafoni.

OmnibusF4. Initial support for the OmnibusF4 family of flight management units was contributed by Bill Gatliff in NuttX-7.29. “OmnibusF4” is not a product name per se, but rather a design specification that many product vendors adhere to. The specification defines the major components, and how those components are wired into the microcontroller. Airbot is one such vendor. They publish a schematic. Other software that supports the OmnibusF4 family include Betaflight, iNAV, and many others. PX4 recently added support as well, also based on NuttX. No code from those resources is included in this port. The OmnibusF4 specification mandates the InvenSense MPU6000 which is included in NuttX-7.29 along with a driver for the MAX7546 OSD.

NXP LPC40xx

The LPC40xx family is very similar to the LPC17xx family except that it features a Cortex-M4F versus the LPC17xx’s Cortex-M3. Architectural support for the LPC40xx family was built on top of the existing LPC17xx by jjlange in NuttX-7.31. With that architectural support came support for two boards also contributed by jjlange:

LX CPU. Pavel Pisa add support for the PiKRON LX CPU board. This board may be configured to use either the LPC4088 or the LPC1788.

Driver Status.

NXP LPC43xx

Several board ports are available for this higher end, NXP Cortex-M4F part:

NXG Technologies LPC4330-Xplorer. This NuttX port is for the LPC4330-Xplorer board from NGX Technologies featuring the NXP LPC4330FET100 MCU. See the NXG website for further information about this board.

  • STATUS: Refer to the NuttX board README file for more detailed information about this port.

  • NuttX-6.20 The basic LPC4330-Xplorer port is complete. The basic NuttShell (NSH) configuration is present and fully verified. This includes verified support for: SYSTICK system time, pin and GPIO configuration, and a serial console.

NXP/Embest LPC4357-EVB. This NuttX port is for the LPC4357-EVB from NXP/Embest featuring the NXP LPC4357FET256 MCU. The LPC4357 differs from the LPC4330 primarily in that it includes 1024KiB of on-chip NOR FLASH. See the NXP website for more detailed information about the LPC4357 and the LPC4357-EVB.

  • STATUS: Refer to the NuttX board README file for more detailed information about this port.

  • NuttX-7.6. The basic port is was contributed by Toby Duckworth. This port leverages from the LPC4330-Xplorer port (and, as of this writing, still requires some clean up of the technical discussion in some files). The basic NuttShell (NSH) configuration is present and has been verified. Support is generally the same as for the LPC4330-Xplorer as discussed above.

NXP LPC4370-Link2. This is the NuttX port to the NXP LPC4370-Link2 development board featuring the NXP LPC4370FET100 MCU.

  • STATUS: Refer to the NuttX board README file for more detailed information about this port.

  • NuttX-7.12 The NXP LPC4370-Link2 port is was contributed by Lok Tep and first released in NuttX-7.12.

WaveShare LPC4337-WS. This is the NuttX port to the WaveShare LPC4337-WS development board featuring the NXP LPC4337JBD144 MCU.

  • STATUS: Refer to the NuttX board README file for more detailed information about this port.

  • NuttX-7.14 The NXP WaveShare LPC4337-WS port is was contributed by Lok Tep and first released in NuttX-7.14.

  • NuttX-7.16 Support for the LPC4337JET100 chip was contribed by Alexander Vasiljev. Alexander also contributed an LPC43xx AES driver available in NuttX-7.16.

Driver Status.

  • NuttX-6.20 Several drivers have been copied from the related GPDMA, I2C, SPI, and SSP. The registers for these blocks are the same in both the LPC43xx and the LPC17xx and they should integrate into the LPC43xx very easily by simply adapting the clocking and pin configuration logic.

    Other LPC17xx drivers were not brought into the LPC43xx port because these peripherals have been completely redesigned: CAN, Ethernet, USB device, and USB host.

    So then there is no support for the following LPC43xx peripherals: SD/MMC, EMC, USB0,USB1, Ethernet, LCD, SCT, Timers 0-3, MCPWM, QEI, Alarm timer, WWDT, RTC, Event monitor, and CAN.

    Some of these can be leveraged from other MCUs that appear to support the same peripheral IP:

    • The LPC43xx USB0 peripheral appears to be the same as the USB OTG peripheral for the LPC31xx. The LPC31xx USB0 device-side driver has been copied from the LPC31xx port but also integration into the LPC43xx (clocking and pin configuration). It should be possible to complete porting of this LPC31xx driver with a small porting effort.

    • The Ethernet block looks to be based on the same IP as the STM32 Ethernet and, as a result, it should be possible to leverage the NuttX STM32 Ethernet driver with a little more effort.

  • NuttX-6.21 Added support for a SPIFI block driver and for RS-485 option to the serial driver.

  • NuttX-7.17 EMC support was extended to include support SDRAM by Vytautas Lukenska.

  • NuttX-7.23 A CAN driver was contributed by Alexander Vasiljev in NuttX-7.23.

  • NuttX-7.24 RTC and Windowed Watchdog Timer (WWDT) drivers were leveraged from the LPC17 and contributed by Gintaras Drukteinis. Leveraged the LPC54xx SD/MMC to the LPC43xx. There are still remaining issues with the SD/MMC driver and it is not yet functional.

NXP LPC54xx

A port to the LPCXpresso-LPC54628 was added in NuttX-7.24. Initial configurations include: A basic NSH configuration (nsh), a networking configuration (netnsh), and three graphics configurations (nxwm, fb, and lvgl).

LPC4508. The port was verified on an LPC5408 by a NuttX user with relevant changes incorporated in NuttX-7.26.

Driver Status.

  • NuttX-7.24 The initial release for the LPC54xx in NuttX included the following drivers: UARTs, SysTick, SD/MMC, DMA, GPIO, GPIO interrupts, LEDs and buttons, LCD, WWDT, RTC, RNG, Ethernet, and SPI. The SPI driver is untested and there are known issues with the SD/MMC driver, however.

  • NuttX-7.29 Configurations were added to verify the “Per-Window Framebuffer” feature also added in NuttX-7.29.

Refer to the LPCXpresso-LPC54628 board README file for more detailed information about this port.

NXP S32K14x

Support for the S32K14x family was added in NuttX-8.1. Two boards are supported

  • S32K146EVB. A port to the S32K146EVB was included in NuttX-8.1. The initial release supports two full-featured NSH configurations. Refer to the S32K146EVB board README file for more detailed information about this port.

  • S32K148EVB. A port to the S32K148EVB was also provided in NuttX-8.1. The initial release supports two full-featured NSH configurations. Refer to the S32K148EVB board README file for more detailed information about this port.

Both boards featured two NSH configurations: One for execution out of FLASH and a safe version that executes out of SRAM and, hence, cannot lock up the system because of a bad FLASH image.

Driver Status.

  • NuttX-8.1 The initial release for the S32K14x boards in NuttX included the following verfied drivers: Basic boot up logic, clock configuration, LPUART console, Systick timer, and GPIO controls. Additional complete-but-unverified drivers were also included: GPIO interrupts, eDMA, LPSPI, LPI2C, and Ethernet (S32K148 only).

Microchip SAM4L

This port uses the Microchip SAM4L Xplained Pro development board. This board features the ATSAM4LC4C MCU running at 48MHz with 256KB of FLASH and 32KB of internal SRAM.

STATUS: As of this writing, the basic port is code complete and a fully verified configuration exists for the NuttShell NSH). The first fully functional SAM4L Xplained Pro port was released in NuttX-6.28. Support for the SAM4L Xplained modules was added in NuttX-6.29:

  • Support for the SPI-based SD card on the I/O1 module.

  • Driver for the LED1 segment LCD module.

  • Support for the UG-2832HSWEG04 OLED on the SAM4L Xplained Pro’s OLED1 module

Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

Memory Usage. The ATSAM4LC4C comes in a 100-pin package and has 256KB FLASH and 32KB of SRAM. Below is the current memory usage for the NSH configuration (June 9, 2013). This is not a minimal implementation, but a full-featured NSH configuration.

Static memory usage can be shown with size command:

NuttX, the NSH application, and GCC libraries use 42.6KB of FLASH leaving 213.4B of FLASH (83.4%) free from additional application development. Static SRAM usage is about 2.3KB (<7%) and leaves 29.7KB (92.7%) available for heap at runtime.

SRAM usage at run-time can be shown with the NSH free command. This runtime memory usage includes the static memory usage plus all dynamic memory allocation for things like stacks and I/O buffers:

You can see that 22.8KB (71.1%) of the SRAM heap is still available for further application development while NSH is running.

Microchip SAM4CM

General architectural support was provided for SAM4CM family in NuttX 7.3 This was architecture-only support, meaning that support for the boards with these chips is available, but no support for any publicly available boards was included. The SAM4CM port should be compatible with most of the SAM3/4 drivers (like HSMCI, DMAC, etc.) but those have not be verified on hardware as of this writing.

The port of NuttX to Adafruit Metro M4 development board was released with NuttX-7/26. This board is essentially a advanced version of the Adafruit Metro board based on the SAMD21, but upgraded to the SAMD51, specifically the SAMD51J19. See the Adafruit web page for additional information about the board.

A fully-function, basic NuttShell (NSH) configuration was was available in this initial NuttX-7.26 release. That initial port verifies clock configuration boot-up logic, SysTick timer, and SERCOM USART for the serial console. The NSH configuration also includes use of the Cortex-M Cache Controller (CMCC) which give the SAMD51’s Cortex-M4 a performance boost.

Because of the similarity in peripherals, several drivers were brought in from the SAML21 port. Most have not been verified as of the NuttX-7.26 release. These unverfied drivers include: SPI, I2C, DMA, USB. Also refer to the NuttX board README file for further information about the current state of the port.

NuttX-9.0 added basic support for Microchip SAME54 Xplained Pro board. An ethernet driver was also added to the SAME5x familly.

Development Environments: The same basic development environment is recommended for the Cortex-M7 as for the Cortex-M4. It would be wise to use the latest GNU toolchains for this part because as of this writing (2015-02-09), support for the Cortex-M7 is a very new GCC feature.

Microchip AVR

AVR ATMega

AVR ATMega128

This port of NuttX to the Amber Web Server from SoC Robotics is partially completed. The Amber Web Server is based on an Microchip ATMega128.

AVR ATMega1284P

LowPowerLab MoteinoMEGA. This port of NuttX to the MoteinoMEGA from LowPowerLab. The MoteinoMEGA is based on an Microchip ATMega1284P. See the LowPowerlab website and the board README file for further information.

AVR ATMega2560

Extension of the AVR architecture to support the ATMega2560 and specifi support for the Arduion MEGA2560 board were contributed by Dimitry Kloper and first released in NuttX-7.14.

AVR AT90USB64x and AT90USB6128x

Micropendous 3 AT90USB64x and AT90USB6128x. This port of NuttX to the Opendous Micropendous 3 board. The Micropendous3 is may be populated with an AT90USB646, 647, 1286, or 1287. I have only the AT90USB647 version for testing. This version have very limited memory resources: 64K of FLASH and 4K of SRAM.

PJRC Teensy++ 2.0 AT90USB1286. This is a port of NuttX to the PJRC Teensy++ 2.0 board. This board was developed by PJRC. The Teensy++ 2.0 is based on an Microchip AT90USB1286 MCU.

AVR-Specific Issues. The basic AVR port is solid. The biggest issue for using AVR is its tiny SRAM memory and its Harvard architecture. Because of the Harvard architecture, constant data that resides to flash is inaccessible using “normal” memory reads and writes (only SRAM data can be accessed “normally”). Special AVR instructions are available for accessing data in FLASH, but these have not been integrated into the normal, general purpose OS.

Most NuttX test applications are console-oriented with lots of strings used for printf() and debug output. These strings are all stored in SRAM now due to these data accessing issues and even the smallest console-oriented applications can quickly fill a 4-8K memory. So, in order for the AVR port to be useful, one of two things would need to be done:

  1. Don’t use console applications that required lots of strings. The basic AVR port is solid and your typical deeply embedded application should work fine. Or,

  2. Create a special version of printf that knows how to access strings that reside in FLASH (or EEPROM).

Development Environments: 1) Linux with native Linux GNU toolchain, 2) Cygwin/MSYS with Cygwin GNU toolchain, 3) Cygwin/MSYS with Windows native toolchain, or 4) Native Windows. All testing, however, has been performed using the NuttX DIY toolchain for Linux or Cygwin is provided by the NuttX buildroot package. As a result, that toolchain is recommended.

Microchip AVR32

AV32DEV1. This port uses the www.mcuzone.com AVRDEV1 board based on the Microchip AT32UC3B0256 MCU. This port requires a special GNU avr32 toolchain available from atmel.com website. This is a windows native toolchain and so can be used only under Cygwin on Windows.

STATUS: This port is has completed all basic development, but there is more that needs to be done. All code is complete for the basic NuttX port including header files for all AT32UC3* peripherals. The untested AVR32 code was present in the 5.12 release of NuttX. Since then, the basic RTOS port has solidified:

  • The port successfully passes the NuttX OS test (apps/examples/ostest).

  • A NuttShell (NSH) configuration is in place (see NSH). Testing of that configuration has been postponed (because it got bumped by the Olimex LPC1766-STK port). Current Status: I think I have a hardware problem with my serial port setup. There is a good chance that the NSH port is complete and functional, but I am not yet able to demonstrate that. At present, I get nothing coming in the serial RXD line (probably because the pins are configured wrong or I have the MAX232 connected wrong).

The basic, port was be released in NuttX-5.13. A complete port will include drivers for additional AVR32 UC3 devices – like SPI and USB — and will be available in a later release, time permitting. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

  • The Freescale DEMO9S12NE64 Evaluation Board, and

  • The Future Electronics Group NE64 /PoE Badge board.

Both use a GNU arm-nuttx-elf toolchain* under Linux or Cygwin. The NuttX buildroot provides a properly patched GCC 3.4.4 toolchain that is highly optimized for the m9s12x family.

Intel 80x86

QEMU/Bifferboard i486. This port uses the QEMU i486 and the native Linux, Cygwin, MinGW the GCC toolchain under Linux or Cygwin.

STATUS: The basic port was code-complete in NuttX-5.19 and verified in NuttX-6.0. The port was verified using the OS and NuttShell (NSH) examples under QEMU. The port is reported to be functional on the Bifferboard as well. In NuttX 7.1, Lizhuoyi contributed additional keyboard and VGA drivers. This is a great, stable starting point for anyone interested in fleshing out the x86 port! Refer to the NuttX README file for further information.

Zilog Z180

P112. The P112 is a hobbyist single board computer based on a 16MHz Z80182 with up to 1MB of memory, serial, parallel and diskette IO, and realtime clock, in a 3.5-inch drive form factor. The P112 computer originated as a commercial product of “D-X Designs Pty Ltd”[ of Australia.

Dave Brooks was successfully funded through Kickstarter for and another run of P112 boards in November of 2012. In addition Terry Gulczynski makes additional P112 derivative hobbyist home brew computers.

STATUS: Most of the NuttX is in port for both the Z80182 and for the P112 board. Boards from Kickstarter project will not be available, however, until the third quarter of 2013. So it will be some time before this port is verified on hardware. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

Zilog Z80

Z80 Instruction Set Simulator. This port uses the SDCC toolchain under Linux or Cygwin (verified using version 2.6.0). This port has been verified using only a Z80 instruction simulator called z80sim.

STATUS: This port is complete and stable to the extent that it can be tested using an instruction set simulator. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

XTRS: TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P Emulator for Unix. A very similar Z80 port is available for XTRS, the TRS-80 Model I/III/4/4P Emulator for Unix. That port also uses the SDCC toolchain under Linux or Cygwin (verified using version 2.6.0).

STATUS: Basically the same as for the Z80 instruction set simulator. This port was contributed by Jacques Pelletier. Refer to the NuttX board README file for further information.

NOTE: This port was removed from the NuttX source tree on 2017-11-24. It was removed because (1) it is unfinished, unverified, and unsupported, and (2) the TRS-80 simulation is a sub-optimal platform.i That platform includes a 16-bit ROM image and only a 48Kb RAM space for NuttX. The removed board support is still available in the Obsoleted repository if anyone would ever like to resurrect it.

* A highly modified buildroot is available that may be used to build a NuttX-compatible ELF toolchain under Linux or Cygwin. Configurations are available in that buildroot to support ARM, Cortex-M3, avr, m68k, m68hc11, m68hc12, m9s12, blackfin, m32c, h8, and SuperH ports.
