Jonathan Blanchard is a lead embedded software developer for real-time kernels at Micrium, the company responsible for the µC/OS RTOS that runs on a variety of processors including the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor in the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC. Blanchard has just posted a step-by-step blog about getting Micrium’s µC/OS up and running on the low-cost, Zynq-based snickerdoodle board from krtkl. (For more information about the snickerdoodle, see “$55, Zynq-based, WiFi-enabled Snickerdoodle makes MAKE:’s Maker’s Guide to Boards.”)

Blanchard’s blog describes how he installed the µC/OS RTOS on the snickerdoodle and how he downloaded the appropriate BSP for the Xilinx SDK under Vivado 2016.2.


His blog ends happily: “And indeed, the snickerdoodle said hello.”
