DSO Quad:Building Firmware

Introduction

Building the DSO Quad firmware from source

This page currently only has information for GCC on Debian. Please add information on more environments if you know how to set them up.

Using GCC and Debian

 apt-get install --no-install-recommends  build-essential autoconf flex bison texinfo libncurses5-dev libgmp3-dev libmpfr-dev libmpc-dev libftdi-dev
 cd
 git clone [git://github.com/esden/summon-arm-toolchain.git](git://github.com/esden/summon-arm-toolchain.git)
 cd summon-arm-toolchain
 $EDITOR summon-arm-toolchain

..and ensure that the following settings are in force:

 TARGET=arm-none-eabi
 USE_LINARO=1
 LIBSTM32_EN=1
 DEFAULT_TO_CORTEX_M3=1

..then:

 ./summon-arm-toolchain

The toolchain installs to ~/sat/. Next:

cd
 git clone [https://github.com/tmbinc/dsoquad](https://github.com/tmbinc/dsoquad)
 cd dsoquad/src/app
 PATH=$PATH:~/sat/bin make

And then you should find .hex files in that directory ready for upload.

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
