Hello Forum Peeps.
I am “trying” to get setup and not able to find clear answers. I’ve got some basics, and some advanced, but seem to be stuck in the early middle of the process.
I’ve a PIC32MZ…EFG100 on Digilent WiFIRE board. I’ve a chipKIT to interface with it for using the MPLAB X IDE to program.
I’ve installed MPLAB X IDE (v5.35) with XC32 (v2.4) and Harmony 3. I can create a project, but it seems to be missing “stuff”. It did see and reference the chipKIT and I did get the peripherals(.a) library add. It doesn’t have any header files in it, no bsp.
I’ve downloaded and modified the FreeRTOS per instructions. It has header files and some other things, but then the IDE doesn’t load the libraries, no bsp. And now doesn’t see my chipKIT even though it is plugged in.
It seems to not have the mainCREATE_SIMPLE_BLINKY_DEMO_ONLY in it.
I’ve a full workable project.x example for a PIC32MZ Curiosity board with bsp files (it works on Curiosity boards, this is for a class). I’m setting up for a parallel project.
The project.x is from Microchip that I got through the instructor, but it appears to have multiple FreeRTOS files in duplicate and the heap_x has too many files…and it isn’t for my G100 PIC32MZ.
I’d really like, it would be great to have:
Step-by-step instructions (without fluff of details) how to take a FreeRTOS demo project and make sure it is setup for my uC.
Setup the IDE to open the project.
Some screenshots of of the project’s file structure would be super helpful.
Know what I can add to a project folder and what I cannot (like I don’t see the header folder in Finder (I’m on a Mac) but it is in the IDE.
Side note, I’ve read through the FreeRTOS pdf (plus website and looked though this forum) and the Microchip IDE User Manual (plus website and forums). The YouTube videos I’ve seen just seem to advertise capabilities. Digilent doesn’t have the support capabilities.
