Rust on RTL8710 running FreeRTOS

Postby polyfractal » Thu Jan 05, 2017 2:15 pm

Hey all. I recently cobbled together a build system so that Rust could be used on the PADI / RTL8710. It's basically the Ameba SDK, with some modifications to allow the Rust build to be linked in as a library.

You can read more about how it works here: https://polyfractal.com/post/rustl8710/

Fair disclaimer: I know very little about embedded hardware, so a good chunk of the article is also about how to physically setup the PADI for SWD, UART, etc.

Hope this is helpful/interesting to someone! :)

This is very interesting; thanks. I'd like to try and follow your example to explore Kotlin Native as an option, too, though it may finally be time to learn Rust :D
