has useful stuff (including forums etc.).
- FreeRTOS, a free, portable, open source RTOS scheduler for small embedded systems
- The code from magazine articles such as
Embedded Systems Programming,
Dr Dobb's Journal and
The C/C++ Users Journal.
You need to know the year and month of the article. Someday someone
might index these. (Dr Dobb's provide a CD which indexes all their code and
Apparently, EDN Magazine has got some CAD/CAM and schematic programs.
Intel's free program that
provides a very neat method of programming some their embedded microprocessors and microcontrollers (e.g.
386EX, 186 family and the some of the 8051 family). Point and click to select
the required options, and it generates commented C or assembly code.
It sure beats looking up the data sheets, writing the code
and trying to find where you went wrong.
- Free DOS with source code.
- Stuff from Finland,
e.g. bit banging I2C code and
circuit, EPROM emulator circuit and Romming for 80x86.

- SDCC is a Freeware, retargettable, optimizing ANSI - C compiler that targets the Intel 8051, Maxim 80DS390 and the Zilog Z80 based MCUs.
uCR is an microprocessor operating system and development kit,
that specifically supports cross development with gcc and g++.
It is currently working on i960 targets, with some support for
m68k, i386 and sparc v8 CPUs. Simulation is available under
Linux/SPARC and Linux/Intel.
Further info is available.
