rustcnow supports 4 Cortex-R targets thanks to the work of paoloteti in the Cortex-R space! You can build programs for these targets using nothing but the Rust toolchain
- James Munns gave a talk at RustConf 2018, covering the basics of embedded systems, and how Rust's Zero Cost Abstractions are a perfect match for bare metal systems
If you have an embedded project or blog post you would like to have featured in the Embedded WG Newsletter, make sure to mention it on the tracking issue for the next newsletter, we would love to show it off!
- Support for the Arduino MKRZERO board has landed in the atsamd21-rs repository! This is a Board Support Crate for various development board based on the Atmel/Microchip samd21 Cortex-M microcontroller
- Branan Riley is working on the fourth chapter of his Exploring Rust on Teensy series, which will focus on using
futures-rsto represent DMA transfers
- Emil Fresk shared some shots of his next Visual Inertial PCB, which includes an STM32 running control algorithms written in Rust!
- Jonathan Pallant added a bare-metal four-channel synthesizer for his Monotron project, and even included a short demo audio clip!
