Topic: Using another microcontroller dev board? (Read 385 times) previous topic - next topic

One great benefit of the Arduino system is the easy-to-use software toolchain.  The Diecimila hardware is also great.  However,  I would like to be able to use the Arduino IDE, but to connect another development board (such as the new Olimex ARM Cortex board) to gain experience with 32-bit processors.

Is anybody else interested in this?  It would require rewriting some of the layers of the software and firmware.

There are some major differences between AVR and ARM so it probably wouldn't be easy

Even AVR and AVR32 are different so it would be not be very easy to port it

Fortunately gcc supports AVR and ARM and eclipse does a pretty good job
