Whenever you are going to write some “larger” programs on Arduino which usually has a ATmega328, ATmega168 or even ATmega8 micro-controller on board, you need to taking what’s written in the title into consideration. Especially with Atmega168 or ATmega8 which only has 512 byte SRAM, this is even more critical. I just suffered from this issue in a recent Arduino software project. The sketch used up too much SRAM and caused the board to reboot periodically. So I take sometime to find out good ways to decrease SRAM utilization. Continue reading
Just updated CodeBlocks Arduino Edition with Arduino core version 1.0.1. The most noticable improvement is a typical sketch’s built binary size is about 3~5% smaller.
Just to announce that ArduGate now runs on Linux. Ubuntu is the distribution on which I build and test the Linux port. As it is a command line version and I build the binary statically, it should run on most Linux distribution. If you still can’t, just build from the source code.

CodeBlocks Arduino IDE is a customized distribution of the open-source Code::Blocks IDE enhanced for Arduino development. It provides more demanding software developers with everything a modern IDE should have including code foldering, code completion, code navgiation, compiling as well as uploading for Arduino. With a dedicated project wizard, it’s easy create a ready-to-go Arduino project. The distribution integrates latest Arduino core files, standard Arduino libraries, AVR toolchain, Arduino Builder, a serial terminal and most interesting, an API-level Arduino simulator (under development).
