Announcing Drone 0.10
After more than 2 years of development, we are pleased to announce Drone, an Embedded Operating System for writing real-time applications in Rust. Drone is a free software, dual licensed under MIT and Apache 2.0. This is the first public release, following many iterations of experimentation. Drone’s key highlights:
- Supports ARM Cortex-M3/-M4. Also for STM32F1, STM32L4, and STM32L4+ there are generated register and interrupt bindings from vendor-provided SVD files.
- Native async/await syntax is enabled and is a preferred way for concurrency.
- Integrated dynamic memory allocator enables use of
Arc, and more. Still perfectly suitable for low-cost MCUs with 20 KB of RAM.
- Rich tooling: generate a new project with
drone new, configure the memory layout in
drone-ldsaves you from manually writing linker scripts.
eprint!and similar macros are mapped to Cortex-M’s ITM channels 0 and 1 out of the box.
- If using Black Magic Probe,
drone bmp itmcaptures the ITM output and displays it in the console. Also there are
