Baremetal Programming in C++ for RISC-V

July 18, 2021|Code (toolchain,baremetal,C++)

I’ve put together a series of posts on Medium covering bare-metal RISC-V development and C++.

Baremetal Startup Code in C++ for RISC-V

April 13, 2021|Code (toolchain,baremetal,C++)

An example of baremetal bootstrap code for RISC-V in C++.

CMake Cross Compilation for RISC-V Targets

March 20, 2021|Toolchain (toolchain,baremetal)

An example of cross compiling a baremetal program to RISC-V with CMake.

RISC-V Compile Targets, GCC

February 09, 2021|Toolchain (gcc,base_isa,extensions,abi)

Note to self: When compiling the riscv-toolchain for embedded systems, set the configure options!

RISC-V CSR Access

November 18, 2020|Code (registers,code,baremetal,quickref)

For baremetal programming I’ll often need to access CSRs, e.g. mstatus.mie for critical sections, mcause in interrupts handlers, etc. Defining function wrappers for accessing these registers creates easier to understand code, however writing these wrappers is pretty tedious.

RISC-V ISA Update

October 11, 2020|Updates (riscv.org,spec)

The User ISA and Privileged ISA have been updated to tag draft-20201007-16f5002 in the upstream repo and re-generated as HTML.

RISC-V Draft Bitmanip Spec

September 27, 2020|Updates (riscv.org,spec)

Compiled to HTML from https://github.com/riscv/riscv-bitmanip.

RISC-V Instructions Quick Reference

May 16, 2020|Updates (isa,quickref)

Added details on how to call instructions from C, listed the CSR instructions, and linked the instruction groups.

RISC-V CSRs Quick Reference

May 16, 2020|Isa (csr,quickref)

Added details on how to access CSRs from C.

RISC-V CSRs Quick Reference

May 03, 2020|Updates (registers,quickref)

Updated CSR quick reference page

  • Linked debug registers.
  • Made table sortable.
  • Added feature/extension classification.

Compiled to HTML from https://github.com/riscv/riscv-debug-spec.git tex.

RISC-V Instructions/Extensions Quick Reference

January 21, 2020|Isa (registers,toolchain,quickref)

A few more quick reference pages:

RISC-V Draft Vector Spec

January 04, 2020|Updates (riscv.org,spec)

Compiled to HTML from https://github.com/riscv/riscv-v-spec.

RISC-V ISA Update

January 02, 2020|Updates (riscv.org,spec)

The User ISA and Privileged ISA have been updated to tag draft-20191228-a6c204f in the upstream repo and re-generated as HTML.

RISC-V Tools Quick Reference

October 29, 2019|Toolchain (toolchain,quickref)

An initial toolchain quick reference.

RISC-V Registers Quick Reference

October 29, 2019|Isa (registers,quickref)

A few more quick reference pages:

RISC-V Interrupts/Exceptions Quick Reference

August 26, 2019|Isa (interrupts,quickref)

I’ve made an attempt to understand and summarize RISC-V interrupts and exceptions. It mostly covers the machine mode interrupt model, entry and exit procedure. It also looks at supervisor mode, user mode and exceptions.

RISC-V ISA Update

August 22, 2019|Updates (riscv.org,spec)

The User ISA and Privileged ISA have been updated to tag draft-20190820-22bf021 in the upstream repo and re-generated as HTML.

RISC-V Compile Targets, GCC

June 26, 2019|Toolchain (gcc,base_isa,extensions,abi)

Getting started with RISC-V. Compiling for the RISC-V target. This post covers the GCC machine architecture (-march), ABI (-mabi) options and how they relate to the RISC-V base ISA and extensions. It also looks at the multilib configuration for GCC.
