13.3. Summary

In this chapter, we went through the procedure for porting eCos to a new platform. We started with getting eCos noticed by the Configuration Tool so that we could build our new hardware platform image. We then looked at some of the modifications that might be necessary to get eCos running on new hardware.

Although the exact steps necessary for bringing up eCos on a new hardware platform are unique to that particular hardware, this porting example gives us a basic understanding of the procedure. Finally, we finished the chapter with some hints that can be used to aid in porting eCos.
