Is it just me or is 80% of the challenge in embedded programming just getting shitty tools to work by following shitty documentation?

Its you

No, it's not just you. The remaining 20% is cobbling some POS code together so that it breaks slightly less than the previous version.

Beautiful.

well, there not only tomshardware for getting edgy news

i mean, a radio enthusiast should look into radio enthusiasts forum and maybe you get that edgy codes you're craving for...

>>52390108
What shitty tools are you trying to get to work? I thought OMAP was well documented.

I'm currently using an stm32f4 discover board for the purpose of controlling a 12 v fan, all that board, and it's a glorified temperature gauge/switch
I do this using scheme and the armpit scheme-to-arm interpreter
>>
>>52390108
That's 80% of the challenge in pretty much anything development wise, 80% is following or looking up documentation and 20% is implementation.

I've been trying to figure out how to build a kernel module for the beaglebone black. I've read tons of tutorials, but I can't get past the actual building part. It always give me a make error that every result on google says has to do with not having the kernel headers. All of them say to install the kernel headers, which I did, but the directory listing of /usr/src/linux-3.8.13 (where the files are supposed to be) seems incomplete compared to what some of the tutorial writers are getting. I'm pretty sure this is the problem, but I can't find the other files I need since it's a somewhat obscure distro (Angstrom) and hasn't been updated in a while. So today I decided to try some of the newer Debian images. The first one I tried works until I expanded the SD card, then when I rebooted the network services don't run for some reason. The second one I tried gets a kernel panic instantly. I'm currently downloading a third one while trying to see if I can get networking to work on the first one again so I can install the kernel files.

Why are most PCBs green? Is it just to look l33t or is it because the materials themselves that make up the board are green?

C# programmer with 10years exp will earn few tiems more monthly than 10years exp embedded engineer

that, they later figured out how to color it

But that's just like normal programming.

>>52391200
no, they've been silkscreening forever, just nobody gave a shit about how their circuits look until now

>>52391890
Wasn't it yellow, then green, then blue, and now black?

>>52390233
How do you upload code to it? i got the debugger cable

embedded programming has turned into a sad meme these past few years.
Now all you need is to extract a ready made gnu/linux distro on a sdcard and boot it. suddenly you are a "embedded developer".
In just a few years, or months even. sjw will start shitting up embedded systems like what they are doing to desktops and phones

I hope they sell cheaper than the chinese.

Can confirm this. Our college uses Infineon NUC130 for embedded programming and for some reason they threw out all the drivers that Infineon supplied and wrote their own. I believe they did it because the drivers were too big for the test version of Keil uVision we're forced to use.
Needless to say, they are incomplete and buggy as shit.
We seriously have to emulate PWM using the SysTick timer and GPIO, because they didn't bother writing drivers for the PWM ports.

No pretty much is spot on.

also you dont need the debugger cable for the discovery/nucleo boards from ST
