Here, I show you how to install the IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Within an IDE, the embedded program is developed, built (compiled into code that the microcontroller can understand) and flashed to the microcontroller (another way of saying, transferring the compiled code into the microcontroller so the microcontroller will do something). The IDE that is shown here has all of the features that most mature IDEs will have, including the ability to debug the program in the IDE and on the chip, color coding for enhanced readability and have a form of intellisense (a contextual helper that will give you hints on what you are typing).
The IDE that is explained in the video is relatively agnostic to ARM based microcontrollers where you can select one of various chip manufacturers that support the ARM architecture. What makes this possibile is that the IDE is really independend from the actual compiler that converts the program into the ARM microcontroller readable code. The IDE selected for this video series is the CoIDE from CooCox which has strong support from ST-Micro which is the line of ARM based microcontrollers that is used in this series. CoIDE is also free! it is an open environment. It is based on an IDE called Eclipse. By using this development environment you can connect it to the GCC compiler which is also an open source compiler so you’ll be able to write your programs without having to pay for the programming environment.
To be able to compile the code that is developed in the CooCox IDE, you’ll need to go to https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/+download and you’ll have a list of executable files to download.
This will install the tools that you need to compile the code that is created. I’m going to select the gcc-arm-none-eabi-##latest-version##-win32.exe file and run it.
Click “Yes” if you “Agree to terms” then “next”.
If you want the GNU Tools for ARM Embedded Development to be installed at the default location, press next, otherwise, click browse to change the install location and then press next.
Make sure “Add path to environment variable” is checked so the tools can be accessed under any folders on the hard drive.
Click “finish” and this will show a readme file on the usage of the tools and also on specific Windows and Linux command lines. You can look at this readme by getting this particular file using Notepad.
After the GCC tools were installed, you’ll need to inform the CoID where that information is installed. Open up the CoID and go to “Project” and “Select Toolchain path”.
You’ll use “Browse” and locate the folder where it was installed and select the version number folder and it will automatically put the .bin file in.
So far we’ve installed the CoID and the GCC compiler. The only thing left to install now is our programmer driver and make sure that the programmer is able to flash the microcontroller. We will do that in the next video.
