It’s been a long while since my last post. I’ve been working like crazy and preparing for my wedding! I have picked up a side project however. I wanted to learn about how a multitasking kernel does its thing at the basic level. So I grabbed an ATMEGA328P and built a little kernel for myself. You can go explore it at my GitHub repo.
As the name implies, it is a little kernel. I’ve built this little multitasking kernel for a project I’ve got in mind down the road. For now though, I’m going to learn as much as I can about multitasking while improving my own littleKernel project.
The project down the road
I love to make music. Whether it be from a physical instrument, digital instrument, or a combination — I love doing it. I’ve built the hardware for a 12 channel MIDI control surface. I built a 4 channel prototype earlier this year, but wanted to do a bigger, more multi-functional version of that. I’ll post pics later on, but this project is the primary reason for home-rolling a multitasking kernel for a microcontroller.
Until next time…
