Re: Programming STM32 through SWD

Yes - you can program the STM32F746 through the SWD interface directly from the Astrobe IDE using the ST-LINK CLI. This was the sort of capability that we had in mind when we designed the user-configurable Tools menu. Edit your AstrobeM3-v7.2\Configs\Tools.ini file and add the following lines or som...

Re: Self-unloading With Modules.Free?

Free should be used with great care and only when necessary. A situation where it is necessary and generally OK is when you are in the process of developing a new module and want to test it after making changes and recompiling. In that case you should have a good understanding of how the module work...

Re: Project Oberon Workstation on Digilent Nexys 4 Rev B

Great! I'm pleased to hear that you have got it working. I'll add a note to the installation instructions to point out that the folder structure should be maintained when unzipping the Verilog files. We deliberately use the same folder structure as the official Project Oberon release. Is that why yo...

Re: Mapping to Nexys4 Cell RAM board

Thank you for the additional information. We used to supply the MCS files with the bitstream file but discovered that not only are these different for different boards, but also between different revisions of the same board :( Anbody else reading this should note the following: You need to refer to ...

Re: Project Oberon Workstation on Digilent Nexys 4 Rev B

(To minimise any confusion I've created this new topic and moved the original message from the Arty A7-100 topic.) We do not have the older Nexys 4 Rev B board so we are unable to test Project Oberon Workstation on it. However, it appears to similar enough to the Nexys A7-100T (which we are able to ...
