Fun with the TFT - FreeRTOS Debugging

If you have been following along with my TFT blogs you may have tried to use the debugger to figure out what was causing the crescent shapes bug. But, because I added FreeRTOS to the project, you’d have seen these warnings when

Fun with the TFT - making a random start position

I don’t know about you, but I quickly got bored of always starting the ball in the same place. I’ve added some code to make that position random. The PSoC 6 device has an on-board true random number generator but, I’ll be honest

ModusToolbox IDE 2.0

 

In most of my previous blogs I have written about working on the command line and using the project-creator and library-manager utilities. Now I am going to introduce you to the IDE and start a sequence of articles to show off the TFT display integration.

Wi-Fi Support added to PSoC 6 SDK

 

I am excited to announce the release of our Wi-Fi Host Driver (WHD), along with TCP/IP and TLS libraries in the PSoC 6 SDK.
