Documentation, broken link

basically miscellaneous, if it doesn't fit another sub-forum enter it here, we might even promote it to its own sub-forum

Hi, I was looking at the ARMWeb Help file - online version.
I clicked on the "Armweb c support" link and was taken to the FreeRTOS site with a "Permission denied" page.
Have things changed ?? -- I have never been there before, but FreeRTOS may have moved things around,
OR I need to login at some point in time ??
'
Thanks for any light you can shed on this situation.

We did publish a FreeRTOS version with network support a few years back. Since then both FreeRTOS and we have moved on.

Actually yesterday we published a simple C example for the LPC1768 mbed board.

https://mbed.org/questions/4137/Connecting-to-webpage/

This is still a work in progress, and we will continue development.

was researching the ProStart board and came across this inconsistency :
http://www.coridium.us/ARMhelp/index.ht ... tPins.html
under Jumpers and test connector for Program Download there is a reference to the LPC2103,
I would imagine it refers to the lpc1114 -- the same exact paragraph is on the ProBoard page (ARM7)

the current documentation from the online help,
"contents" tab, index page at the bottom, the LEFT link takes you to a LOOP page
and so does the ALPHABETICAL Keywords page !!
***
now the LEFT at the bottom of the RIGHT page is okay !!!
*********************and this special case, don't have any ideas other than bbRXD , etc.
alphabetical KEYWORDS - BAUD refers to bbBAUD, ETC
Index - BAUD refers to BAUD(x), etc [have to got to SERIN to get a 'feel' for the 'bbstuff"

perhaps is separating the SERIAL into bbBaud & BAUD() a link got misplaced.
athe RXD() link on the BAUD() page jumps you to the TXD() page
bthe RXD() link on the TXFREE() page jumps you to the TXD() page

MBED page http://www.coridiumcorp.com/mbed.php, indicates that the product is an M4,
some of NXP's documents refer to it as M3........
'
are you selling that board that you have a picture and description of??

Yes that one is an M3, too much cutting and pasting...

We do not plan to sell mbed boards, you can buy them from Digikey, Adafruit, SparkFun among other places. But we will sell and support the compiler for those and other popular ARM boards.

online help - the 'index' at the bottom of the "Contents" tab- the BAUD selection
there is a reference to the Yahoo Forum that shows me nothing of any technical information
(I am not a member of the group though I had requested it) this is the link:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ARM ... opics/2495
'
BTW there are 8 search results returned if 'Yahoo' is input on the SEarch tab

You probably are a member of the forum now, I only get notification someone wants to join when the time limit is coming up, so the lag time can be long.

Basically between the fact that Yahoo forums are not readily searchable, and only readable by members, and the target of spammers, I have retired it. I went through and moved most of the useful messages over here (that was a pain). If Yahoo thinks they want to be a search engine provider, you would think they could do a better job of it.

But the note on the fractional baud rate divider did not make it.

To use fractional baud rates, call BAUD(x) with a number that results in a integer divider from PCLK that is faster than the target rate. Then program the fractional divider such that target_rate = integer_rate/(1 + div/mul)

where
1 <= mul <= 15
0 <= div <= 14
div < mul

UART0_FDR = (mul<<4) + div
