Embedded Issues 001 - Getting a new board

I just received a new board from a company to do some stuff as “entry test”. Usually I follow the next procedure to ensure that I can focus on the software and forget about hardware relating issues.

  • Connect everything (GCC, GND) and hope for the best, which basically means it doesn’t burn.
  • Download the SDK or library and set up the toolchain
  • Code a basic program test (turning on a LED)
  • Flash the microcontroller
  • Everything works? then I can start my work, else I “debug” each previous step

So far, so good.

If you think what I do is cool, send me a mail or buy me a beer. I'll appreciate it!
