I'm Henry from Siemens SI BP, working on the firmware platform, and we decided to use CMSIS-Driver (UART, I2C, SPI, etc.) as common hardware abstraction layer APIs.
Question: Do we have some where the CMSIS-Driver implementations as open source repositories (e.g. on GitHub). Then we could follow the latest update, report issues, and may make contribution as well.
I too, think the ARM Community would benefit from the Open Source Community. There's some stalled packs I would like to see updated, and don't mind doing it myself, except I can't find any repo to do so.
It's hard to understand why ARM would overlook such work horse, while wanting the biggest adoption. If ARM wants to control the merge or PRs, I don't mind one bit.
Nowadays opening to contributors seems like the way to go.
If anyone has contact names that could influence the decisions around this, I'd like to know them
Thanks for this discussion and its ideas, which I have shared with the Arm Keil management.
In this specific case, I recommend also contacting ST(or any other SIP) to provide CMSIS-Driver support.
