Computing pointers in gnu as
I've spent a couple hours trying to complete an LED-muxing ISR in gnu assembler, and the "hi8/lo8" operators are giving me no end of pain (as usual). The context is: R30 (ZL) has...

Debugger Disappointments
Hi! In case anyone at Amtel is monitoring, I'd like to offer a few suggestions for improving the behavior of the debug/simulate features integrated into AStudio6. I've just...

Does Atmel permit the educational use of AStudio6?
I intermittently present a class for highschool kids on microcontroller programming, which has involved a simple AVR-based class project. My co-instructor and I would like to...

Does DFU bootloader adapt to CPU clock speed?
I'm thinking of migrating from AT90USB82 to an ATxmega32A4U. In order for the AT90USB82's factory-installed DFU bootloader to work, the part has to be given an 8 or 16MHz...

A technique for pulling selfcontained modules from a library
I've seen this issue discussed several times before, but not with this exact solution, so I'll barge ahead with my own reinterpretation of the wheel... Fairly often, I generate...

Macros to enhance debuggability
Over the past year, I've spent a lot of time using a JTAGICE debugging pod to watch the execution of some firmware I've developed for an ATmega324A. Most of the time, I have to...

CPSE instruction
Feel like a Friday question? As gcc is slowly winning me over, I don't do as much with assembly anymore, but this past week I've had to build some fanatically optimized routines,...

Allocating "just enough" buffer size at link time
Hi, all! I'm mildly interested in finding some elegant way to instantiate a statically-defined data buffer exactly big enough to serve the needs of the most demanding of several...

What prevents symbolic debugging from working?
Hi, all; sorry for the provocative title. I can't claim that symbolic debugging of gcc-produced code with AStudio is completely nonfunctional, because at least five or ten...

Code generation problem with -mcall-prologues
Hi, all! I'm a couple months or more into the development of an atmega324-based product, and happened across what I think is a compiler bug of a very subtle and insidious kind....

Technique for automatic firmware version number assignment
Like Jedi crafting their own light-sabers, it seems that every software embedder devises their own scheme for stamping version numbers into firmware builds. Mine's just been...

Linker wish list feature: feasable?
I've pretty much accepted that the features of the embedded-system-specific linkers of the 1980s won't ever be restored, but here's something that I wouldn't expect to be all that...
