Make sure you select your board in conf_general.h​

In case of VESCular6 and VESCuino board, we pre-define the "HW_SOURCE" and "HW_HEADER" value using macro command (Board Select Here!!!) as below.

There are also many other options that can be changed in conf_general.h

Prerequisites

On Ubuntu

Install the gcc-arm-embedded toolchain

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gcc-arm-embedded

Add udev rules to use the stlink v2 programmer without being root

wget vedder.se/Temp/49-stlinkv2.rules
sudo mv 49-stlinkv2.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
sudo udevadm trigger

On MacOS

Go to the GNU ARM embedded toolchain downloads Website and select the mac version, download it and extract it to your user directory.

Append the bin directory to your $PATH. For example:

export PATH="$PATH:/Users/your-name/gcc-arm-none-eabi-8-2019-q3-update/bin/"

Install stlink and openocd

brew install stlink
brew install openocd

Build

Build and flash the bootloader first

Clone and build the firmware

git clone https://github.com/vedderb/bldc.git vesc_firmware
cd vesc_firmware
make

Flash it using an STLink SWD debugger

make upload
