Getting power and battery info from AXP209

Here is a script that gives some info about battery (when one is plugged)

I think that this page has mistakes (http://linux-sunxi.org/AXP209#Spec_Sheets) because discharging and charging current are inverted.

#!/bin/sh
# This program gets the battery info from PMU
# Voltage and current charging/discharging
#
# Nota : temperature can be more than real because of self heating

this script gives the AC power status :

Battery voltage = 3895.1mV
Battery discharge current = 304.0mA
Battery charge current = 0mA

rzbo@ubuntu:~$ ./power_status.sh
AC_STATUS=1

Battery discharging (USB power unplugged)

rzbo@ubuntu:~$ ./battery_info.sh
BAT_STATUS=0
CHARG_IND=0
BAT_EXIST=1
CHARGE_CTL=0xd0
CHARGE_CTL2=0x47
Battery voltage = 3678.4mV
Battery discharge current = 0mA
Battery charge current = 176.0mA

rzbo@ubuntu:~$ ./power_status.sh

STM32 Microcontrollers – Prior to Start

STM32 ARM-based micros from STMicroelectronics pack high density resources than any other conventional microcontroller. They are also high speed devices, operating typically at 72MHz and beyond. Despite several advanced features and heavy resources, they turn out to be misfortunes for beginners who wish to play with them. Available in market are several cool STM32 boards but most of them are not well documented. The aim of this document is to address some common FAQs.

Typically most people ask the following question:

  • How to program the STM32 micro embedded in my development board?
  • What tools do I need to get started?
  • What compiler support do I have for STM32?
  • What resources are available for STM32 on the internet?
