GNU/Linux Microcontroller Programming???

Postby Guest » 2005-12-29 23:55

I was wondering if anyone knows of any microcontrollers that have decent support in linux - totally open source if possible... I would love to use emacs, gcc, etc to program something along the lines of a PIC18F452...

Ken, have you ever seen these?

gputils contains a compiler, assembler and linker for Microchip PIC microcontrollers and gpsim is a GNU PIC Simulator. Both are GPL licensed. We use them in our final design project for EE at the University of Alberta. I have found these manuals to be quite useful: ... putils.pdf ... /gpsim.pdf

Hope that's helpful,
Mike J

I just started learning C Programming with 8051.
I use P89V51RD2 from Philips.
And I program with SDCC - Gnu GPL (opensource) C Compiler (homepage).
It also supports Microchip PIC16 and PIC18 series.
Primary targets supported platform are Linux and Windows.

If you are interested in, please visit my homepage:

P.S. I have free source code for download.

i use the 16f628a for example and would also like to know if i can do something with it on linux, i already have a python script (xwisp) to program my pic's but i dont know if there are any good compilers and stuff for this picmicro, and others. right now i can only program in picbasic, but thats really closed source so i would like to learn new programming languages, no assembly though, and C isnt for the 16x series
I can read you email, though i have no idea how i did it.
