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...

Characterizing The Boards

This was my second week here. I was tasked with troubleshooting and characterizing the boards. There are in total seven prototypes for me to play with. The boards are divided into old and new...

Ethernet Chip

This week I spent most of my time testing the networking section of the board. Firstly I tried to run a simple TCP server code on the board to confirm that it is working....
