Running NuttX on LPCXpresso54628 OM13098

Today I tested NuttX running the LVGL demo on LPCXpresso54628.

Here you can find the steps needed to get it working.

First compile the firmware to create the nuttx.bin:

$ ./tools/configure.sh lpcxpresso-lpc54628/lvgl
$ make menuconfig
$ make

Now you can flash the firmware using JLinkExe on Linux.

You can use the LPC54608J512 even to flash the LPC54628:

$ sudo JLinkExe -if SWD -device LPC54608J512

Type "connect" to establish a target connection, '?' for help

Run “connect” command:

Finally flash nuttx.bin using the loadbin command:

J-Link>loadbin ./nuttx.bin 0

  1. Hi Alan,

    I’ve some questions about Nuttx:
    1. Is there any tutorial about migration from FreeRTOS to Nuttx (an easier way)?
    2. The compilation results only in binary files, like .hex and .bin, can I generate .elf file to debug with Jlink?
    3. Now, my products have a custom bootloader, can I keep my custom bootloader and if possibly, which the files I need to change (Linker files, more specifically)?
    4. Where can I put my application? “Apps” directory? If yes, how to handle the both projects in eclipse, for example? how to debug both projects in the same time?

    Congratulation for your efforts in Nuttx advertising.

    1. Hi Gabriel,
      1. I’m not aware about any documentation about migration, but NuttX is easy you learn as you can see on my videos at NuttX Channel ;
      2. It results in ELF file as well, the file “nuttx” is an ELF file ;
      3. Yes, nuttx can boot from a bootloader, see the pcduino port, it boots from U-Boot ;
      4. You can put it on apps/ directory or you can compile NuttX as library and just load your application on Eclipse, search about it here on my blog.

      Thank you very much Gabriel, nice to see more Brazilians interested on NuttX.

      BR,

      Alan
