I want to start on using CMSIS and as well as also possibly implement my own drivers with CMSIS interface.I don't have a clear pic in my head of the complete layout of CMSIS, what goes into it. Specifically about Driver:
There is a bullet list there, CMSIS-Driver API groups. Is this complete list of what there is then, is this all that is defined by standard?
I'm also particularly wanted to clarify, I don't understand where do other type of MCU more common or 'primitive' specific "drivers" would go, such as GPIO, ADC for .e.g?
It says on that link I've referenced above, ".. A Device Family Pack may contain additional interfaces in the Component Class Device to extend the standard Peripheral Drivers covered by this CMSIS-Driver specification with additional device specific interfaces for example for Memory BUS, GPIO, or DMA. "
What is this "Device Family Pack" ? Does it have interfaces defined by the CMSIS for it?
Does this "...with additional device specific interfaces" mean for such "drivers" (or basic glue? ) there is no common CMSIS type interfaces?
Does anyone write a CMSIS type say ADC 'wrapper' or driver, or this is always left as too specific for an MCU?
