If you are building an embedded system you can pay a lot for a
development toolchain or you can roll your own. This can vary from
easy, if support for your processor is available in the tools, to
hard, if you need to write the support for your target platform into
binutils and GCC. Generally with any new piece of hardware a Board
Support Package (BSP) needs to be written so the common features of
libc can be made available and a feature rich BSP can ease debugging
buy creating simple debugging mechanisms such as a console. I’d like
to share my experiances with the ARM processor and hear what others
have to say about their own systems. We can touch on topics like
building the toolchain, creating a BSP, interacting with the toolchain
community, simple hardware to get beginners started or creating
libraries to be used between multiple platforms to just name a few.
