New info ARM compiler roadmap banner news

The new release of ARM compilers is four weeks away (release date is February 27). We are proceeding according to schedule. For those who are closely following, we just published a detailed progress report. You can find it in the newest entry to the Project Log on the Software Roadmap page.

To remind you, this release is about adding support for Texas Instrument’s ARM® Cortex-M4® MSP432 MCUs. Most of the work, therefore, is about updating the command line and the libraries to accommodate this family of MCUs.

To sum up, the work on all the hardware modules has been completed. Specifically, libraries for GPIO, ADC, SPI, PWM, PWM3, Flash, UART, I2C are completed.

Our MSP2432 toolchain will include clicker and clicker 2 boards. At this stage, the prototypes have been successfully tested. We are now working to provide new example sets covering these two boards.

The release of the compiler will be accompanied by a new version of mikroProg Suite for ARM with support for MSP432 (with debugger). This is mostly done. We are running final tests.

All the standard MikroElektronika software libraries are underway.

Much more detail is provided in the Project Log.

Sincerely,
MikroElektronika

  1. It’s nice that you are adding a new MCU 🙂

    BUT
    will be corrected all errors in the compiler ?
    will be delivered basic hardware peripherals ? DMA FSMC ?
    will function properly bookmarks ?
    will work better TFT with the software compiler MikroC ?

    It would be better to work on the basic functions of the compiler, instead of adding new MCU.
    Support of new MCU is useless when things do not work the basic library compiler.

    • Hi,
      We appreciate your comment. Of course we will work on removing errors. Every new release carries these kinds of fixes. I can’t claim that we will remove ALL errors (who can?), but we are constantly improving, tackling most important issues first.

      That said, some new releases are focused on new MCUs. Others are about introducing new functionalities. The good news is that we are increasing the frequency of new releases and updates for all compilers.

      As for specific feature requests, please join the discussion on our forum. We take these community requests seriously. We already solved a couple of requests since the topic started.

      As you can see, DMA is among the most requested features. That means that it will be our top priority as well.
