I want to set myself up with a development environment for the DSO Nano that is hopefully winging its way to me now.
My current goal is simply to compile and upload a version of the existing code with “Hello World” added to the power on screen.
If all goes well, I will be working towards a modest, custom software version that is specifically designed as a power strength meter for tuning 125KHz RFID tag reading antennas. (I can describe that later to anyone interested)
At the moment I am not clear of which version of source code and what development environment to use as the base.
As I understand it, the “best” executable is BenF’s 3.2 but (and I firmly believe “his code, his call”) the source is not (yet?) available. That leaves:
“v2.5e for IAR v4.0” which has no source for some libraries
“v1.1 for IAR v4.0” which has all the source code (complete with a long list of bugs)
or I could set myself up for gcc but I presume I would still need IAR to do the reprogramming/downloading.
Is this correct?
Any advice? Suggestions?
