    Atom N450 board : What do we need to configure for the application to start

    Community Member


      -         What does the code we received do exactly ? (inintialization, configuring to some mode)
      -         What do we need to configure for the application to start
      -         When we boot the system, we jump directly into the Bios, why? What is the step after?
      -         Do you have sample drivers for activating LED, 7Segment and RS232 (COM1) Can we have access to that code?
      -         APIC Timer - how to make it work properly ?
      -         What do we need as a strict minimum in order to do what we need to do?
      -         Is it possible to stay in real mode and work with the IVT ? Does it make sense to jump into Protected mode for implementing µC/OS-III ?
      -         How to stay in real mode, protected mode? Code for that?

          Hello and Welcome to the Intel® Embedded Community.


          From your questions it seems like you are just getting started with Intel® Atom™.   Let me point you to a few resources that might be useful:


          Here is the User's Guide for the N450 board:  http://download.intel.com/design/intarch/manuals/324421.pdf


          For an introduction to Atom, there is a good book available from Intel Press, "Break Away with Intel® Atom™ Processors"




          I   want to make you aware of a special place to go with questions  like   yours.  The Intel® e-Help desk is staffed by Intel representatives who support select Intel embedded platforms including Atom
