Perhaps you have a spare FPGA board collecting dust in your desk drawer or on a lab shelf, but no experience with digital circuit design and programmable logic? And when you've outgrown the constraints of our pre-built FPGA configurations, move on to extending the existing or adding your own circuitry, since all the hardware and software components are open. How does this work?
On real hardware, all you could do is add debug-prints. Using a debugger will save hours and days of head-scratching. Older PCs have a BIOS in firmware which determines how the hardware performs some initialization at least video, keyboard, and some form of storage or boot loader. So start by learning the low level details of how to use the BIOS or other firmware, on your target system.
That is, learn how to write a program that the BIOS can load and execute. That will eventually morph into your boot loader. Just get a program that prints: From there I'd recommend writing a very simple serial driver Then it can execute the code it pulls across.
From there write a bit of bootstrap that can write to another set of blocks we haven't implemented a file system yet At that point your boot loader should be able to pull new code across the serial line, dump it into a partition yes, implement partition table handling of some sort From there you should be able to work on far more sophisticated features.
From this base you can write and compile a new "kernel" Your bootloader should take some signal, such as a BREAK over the serial handshaking lines as a command to skip the download and just boot the existing image; and it should handle some timeout in this way as well.
From there write a very simple terminal layer and command shell? Implement commands to download new executable content other than the kernel files or objects of some sort.
Since your new OS will start as a cross-compiled project it's going to be essential for you to have a streamlined way of handling that. I don't know how far you want to take your project. A reasonably impressive goal would be to achieve "self hosting. Note that's not a requirement.
Many embedded systems are never going to be self-hosting and there's nothing wrong with that.Download. OPERATING SYSTEM IMAGES. All pcDuinos/Acadia/Arches single board computers are pre-installed Ubuntu or Android operating system.
