Ling on PIC32 microcontroller

  1. 1. LING on MIPS architecture Cloudozer, 26 Jun 2015
  2. 2. PIC32MZ PIC32MZ is a MIPS architecture MCU of Microchip • 2 MB flash memory (program memory); • 512 KB built-in RAM (data memory); • MIPS MicroAptiv™ core, 200 MHz
  3. 3. LING: porting 
 https://github.com/EarlGray/ling • LING core without libraries: 36 kloc of C code; • Different toolchain: xc32-gcc; we have to flash an IHEX image to a microcontroller to run the VM or to simulate PIC32 using MPLABX IDE tools. • the xc32 toolchain and its header files 
 do not support C99 properly; 
 moved to C89 (mostly correcting 
 variable declarations in for clauses);
  4. 4. LING: porting • Platform-specific parts have already been separated in LING code (mostly), but the core code still needed some adjusting like #ifdef-ing LWIP calls and changing C99 code to C89; • The platform-specific code has been mostly rewritten (~600 loc); • There are numerous stubs at the moment: fake timers, bif_not_implemented for regular expression 
 BIFs, stubs for MD5 and SHA BIFs; 
 domain_poweroff() just hangs 
 the processor; there are fake Nettle
 and LWIP headers to get the VM 
 compiled.
  5. 5. LING: I/O • MPLABX debug output support is unstable (it works for some PIC32 models and does not for others), can’t be used in a simulator); • Initially used a ring buffer in memory for logging + debugger; • we have an UART driver now for debug output; 
 thanks a lot to Serge Vakulenko’s 
 work on PIC32 emulation in Qemu
 and his LiteBSD source code;
  6. 6. LING: hello, PIC32
  7. 7. LING: our plans • Making it work properly: real timers, I/O, power management, crypto; improving GC for PIC32; • support for Erlang stdlib and loadable LING modules; 9p; • optimizing memory usage; at the moment:
 Data RAM: 46 memory pages used at startup out of 128;
 Program RAM: 1.1 MB out of 2 MB; • A testbed for driver construction in Erlang; • An Ethernet driver in Erlang;
