GPIO - LED and Switch Interface

Objective

The objective of the assignment is to access microcontroller's port-pins to manipulate LEDs that are connected to a few on-board LEDs of the SJ2 board.

Please reference this article for good hints related to this assignment.

 


Part 0:

In this part, we will setup basic skeleton of the code before we access the memory map to manipulate an LED.

// file: main.c
#include <stdio.h>

// Separate include files for Clang to sort separately
#include "delay.h"

void main(void) {
  unsigned counter = 0;
  
  while (1) {
    printf("Running: %u\n", counter); 
    ++counter;

    delay__ms(1000U);
  }
}

 


Part 1:

In this part, we will actually reference the LPC user manual and manipulate one of the on-board LEDs.

You can refer Chapter 8 - Table 94 of the user manual.

// file: main.c
#include <stdio.h>

// Separate include files for Clang to sort separately
// Add header files required
#include "delay.h"

void blinky_leds(void){

	// 1. Refer to the datasheet and configure the direction and pin using the memory address
	uint32_t *port1_pin_register = (uint32_t *)(MEMORY_ADDRESS);
    ...
	
	// Set directions to the pins
	...
	
	while (1) {
		delay__ms(100);
		
		METHOD1: Use bitmasking techniques to set and reset the pins
		
		METHOD2: Use the set and clear registers 
    }
}

int main(void)
{
	blinky_leds();
	return 0;
}


 


Part 2:

In this part, we will use the LPC memory map to manipulate the on-board LEDs. This will reduce us from cross referencing the LPC user manual.

 Use LPC40xx MCU Memory Map as reference

// file: main.c
#include <stdio.h>

// Separate include files for Clang to sort separately
// Add header files required
#include "board_io.h"
#include "delay.h"
#include "gpio.h"
#include "lpc40xx.h"

void blinky_leds(void) {

	// Step 1: Choose pin as GPIO
	LPC_IOCON->(port_pin_number) &= ~7;
    
	// Step 2: Enable the direction pin 
	
	while (1) {
		delay__ms(100);
		
		// Use set and clear registers to set and clear pins accordingly
	}
}
	

Part 3:

Create a comprehensive GPIO driver and manipulate the on-board LED's using the on-board switches. You could use PART1: GPIO Driver as reference.


Extra Credit:

Do something creative with your implemented GPIO driver.  You could have the LED blink three times when the switch is pressed.
