This started a quest to design the perfect cycle delay for one of my favorite MCUs the STM8. In the process I learned a lot about custom pipeline and execution of in proprietary MCU such as STM8S.

It has been long time since I worked on ESP8266 and that too native SDK from Esperssif. With the rusty know-how and lack on info online, I had a mixed start again. Hope that the experience shared here might be helpful for many users, who wish to do ESP8266 native SDK development on Windows Platform. But are afraid that most of the working tools for ESP8266 are linux friendly.

Not to worry you are in good company.


Installing AVRISP mkII with Libusb-win32 on Windows 10

Its common that one needs to use a programmer from the Arduino IDE, but on Windows 10 things are not as simple. Many times the drivers installed are not correct hence the avrdude tool in the Arduino IDE refuses to work.

Now, we have a way to do this programming in Linux as well. Have a look at my latest article Programming Arduino Bootloader using Avrdude with AVRISP mkII in Manjaro (Arch Linux) .
