Enlightenment

This makes my 11th week with Aeste. I started off by implementing the generation of the RNG key which is to be read from the flash and performing even more trials to make sure it works exactly...

Flash & Bitstream

I started off this week by troubleshooting and testing the flash functions. In harmony there are two non-volatile memory drivers, NVM and Flash. Usage of the flash driver is simpler compared to NVM. The...

PIC32 HMAC-MD5

I spent this week jumping between tasks as I tend to get bored working on the same thing for long. This week I worked on implementing HOTP, flash and troubleshooting the SSL server. HOTP works...

PIC32 CORS

My task for last week was to implement CORS protocol for the HTTP server on FreeRTOS with the new boards. To briefly explain, when accessing an HTTP website (server) your browser (client) is sending a request to...

FreeRTOS Memory Heap Problem

This week I pushed my basic FreeRTOS port onto a release branch on GIT (yay) as functionality is good. It’s very simple. It has 3 apps related to USB, FPGA and TCP/IP. The USB CDC app task...

Not as Smooth as I’d thought

Week 5. I continued working on utilizing FreeRTOS for our board as last week I had done a very improper implementation. In my inexperienced eyes, everything was working, but more and more issues were appearing. That’s...

To FreeRTOS

This week I was tasked with migrating our PIC32 code so it would use the superior FreeRTOS architecture instead of a superloop. Having no experience in FreeRTOS whatsoever I began by skimming through the first 3 chapters...

Week 3

It’s already week 3. Time flies on internship. Its really not boring either. I sometimes spend +8 hours in the office but I’m never thinking “Oh man when can I leave?” Instead its “shit I’ve been here...
