Porting a Freertos demo app supporting Xilinx IDE from one port(Cortex-A9) to another port(Cortex-M4)

Posted by shyamthella on November 21, 2016

Hi all,

Among the demo apps available for different ports provided in Freertos source code I can see one specific app for CORTEXA9 supporting Xilinx IDE. We have a custom platform which is made up of Cortex-M4 and supports Xilinx IDE. There are also demo apps for CORTEX-M4 but they are Atmelstudio projects(which my custom board is not supported).

So now how should I use CORTEX-M4 demo app and edit it using XilinxIDE and load it on to my custom board using HS3 cable?

Is there a way to change CORTEX-A9 to CORTEX-M4 by changing the portable files directly? or we need to do something else ?

Regards, Shyam Kumar T

Among the demo apps available for different ports provided in Freertos source code I can see one specific app for CORTEX_A9 supporting Xilinx IDE.

We provide demos that build with the Xilinx IDE for all the hard and software MCUs currently promoted by Xilinx, including Microblaze, Zynq Cortex-A9, MPSoC Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A9.

We have a custom platform which is made up of Cortex-M4 and supports Xilinx IDE.

As, to my knowledge, Xilinx don't themselves provide an M4 reference, we don't have a project that uses the Xilinx IDE for the M4. I'm not sure if the compiler shipped with the Xilinx IDE will build M4 projects, but don't see why it wouldn't, but you can always use the arm-none-eabi to build your M4 project.

There are also demo apps for CORTEX-M4 but they are Atmel_studio projects(which my custom board is not supported).

There are M4 projects for Atmel Studio, Keil, IAR, Tasking, GCC, numerous Eclipse IDEs on top of GCC and the MikroC tools (any I missed?). I don't think you looked very hard.

So now how should I use CORTEX-M4 demo app and edit it using XilinxIDE and load it on to my custom board using HS3 cable?

Is this in any way a FreeRTOS question? Or a question for the Xilinx tools guys?
