Blinky101 is a collection of projects that helps you get up to speed with various microcontroller platforms. The goal is to provide step by step tutorials and guides to help you start developing using open source tools.
When you want to start developing with a new microcontroller you need to get it working as soon as possible. That way you know that your hardware is sound and you can fully focus on learning all the microcontrollers ins and outs.
The Blinky101 project is focussed on just one thing: getting a LED to blink, which is the Hello World program of microcontrollers. Once you have a blinky running, you can expand the program to do more advanced stuff.
Below you find a list of supported platforms. Each platform has a set of guides that gets you started with setting up the debugger and creating your own firmware.
lpc11uxx Series: Entry-level 32-bit cortex-m0 microcontrollers, 50MHz, built-in USB.
lpc43xx Series: Dual-core cortex-M4 + cortex-M0 microcontroller, 204MHz, USB 2.0 High-Speed.
This is a list of debuggers: they are used to connect to your target board. The microcontroller guides above will have instructions on how to use them with each specific platform.
Black Magic Probe
This is our preferred debugger: the Black Magic Probe is fully open-source, easy to setup and requires no special software.
The goal of Blinky101 is to crowd-source knowledge about as many platforms as possible and make it available for everybody.
