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.

Windows users simply have to use the installers, just make sure that the directories containing arm-none-eabi-gcc.
It is only required if you want to see the SPI output. 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.

It is required only if you want to capture the test report from the USART1 port cihbios a terminal emulator, for example the in famous HyperTerminal.

We will use it as workspace later. 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. The forums is the best place, registration required.
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. Make sure that the cgibios C: You may download the JRE from here.

Now a complete example:. 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. The demo code can be previewed here. A list of compatible devices is available in the OpenOCD documentationmore exactly here. A pool is a collection of equally sized memory blocks, creating a thread from a memory pool is very similar to the previous example but the memory of terminated threads is returned to the memory pool rather than to a heap:.
The application demonstrates the use of the following components:. I bought the one in the picture here. A static thread can be started by invoking chThdCreateStatic as shown in this example:. Verify if you have Java installed, if not install the runtime.
This macro reserves chjbios of stack for the thread and space for all the required thread related structures. This thread executes your main function at startup. The result of what is described here can also be downloaded as a single package called ChibiStudio which includes the toolchain and all ChibiOS demos already imported into a workspace.
Try the video tutorials and guides on Play Embedded. 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 determined by the temperature and is driven by the STM32 internal sensor.
The total size and the alignment problems are handled inside the macro, you only need to specify the pure and simple desired stack size. This thread has the lowest priority in the system so it runs only when the other threads in the system are sleeping.
