Re: STM32F429 EvoPrimer Design Contest

I decide to participate in the current contest as well.
But the CircleOS limits my needs a little bit - I do need the CCM memory, the fastest clocks etc.
So create a project from the scratch and change  startup, linker scripts and install the latest (v 1.3) STM STDP drivers.
All works fine, but the bare system with no application (just core, used drivers, FATFS) is about 60KB. It does mean  I can debug nothing.

So question number 1) Is it possible, for a FairPlay sake, to get the temporarily  key to unlock full debug power for the contest  participants?  Or may be it is allowed to download and install the full trial version of Ride7 with no restrictions and use it for the contest app developing?

And some questions about Ride7:
2) I can't find the option to display file extensions in the editor's labels. From the other hand there is one good side - more headers can be seen. But anyway...
3) CCM memory contents Ride7 shows incorrectly. For example, when int array (defined in CCM) is filled in, only LSByte of the first int is changed in Ride7 memory viewer. The debug output (via USART6 TX ) shows the right fillings and all other operations. Or I am missing something?
4) Preprocessor's defines behaviour looks a little bit embarassed. The shadowing is not updated after succesfully build accordingly to global defines ( defined in the project options) but defines declared in a file are seen at once as expected.

Hi,

   Thanks for your feedback on the contest and the tools.

My colleagues will get back to you on the issues with Ride.

For the debug limitation, send a description of your project to  support[at]raisonance.com and we'll unblock the code size limitation.

cheers,

Re: STM32F429 EvoPrimer Design Contest

1) See previous post.

2) I don't understand what you mean ? Do you talk about the project tree structure ?

3) The issue is known for extra memory like CMM, external SDRAM... It has been fixed, but will be only available for the next release. A workaround exists by declaring the segment into the SIM file. Take a look at this topic : http://forum.raisonance.com/viewtopic.php?id=3411

4) The issue is known, the shadowing is not always correct. We are working on it...

Re: STM32F429 EvoPrimer Design Contest

Oops, its very strange !

But, after check, it seems that it happens when you have configured your Windows "Folder Options" with "Hide extensions for known file types" property.

Re: STM32F429 EvoPrimer Design Contest

Yes, you are right.
But it is strange that all others IDE i am playing with (Visual Studio, Atollic, CrossWorks, uVision etc)  are irrelevant to this and always display extensions.
