Highlights

Embedded Projects

If you have an embedded project or blog post you would like to have featured in the Embedded WG Newsletter, make sure to mention it on the tracking issue for the next newsletter, we would love to show it off!

embedded-hal Ecosystem Crates

As part of the Weekly Driver Initiative, crates that are part of the embedded-hal ecosystem are now tracked in the Awesome Embedded Rust repository. Here is a current snapshot of what is available there:

Type Status Count
Device Crates released 14
HAL Impl Crates released 11
Board Support Crates released 6
Driver Crates Released released 9
Driver Crates WIP WIP 30

Help Wanted

  • We are seeking input about the user interface the cargo-binutils subcommands should expose. These subcommands provide access to the LLVM tools provided by the llvm-tools rustup component mentioned above.
  • Are you using embedded Rust in production? We are collecting commercial testimonials about embedded Rust for the webpage the embedded WG will have on the revamped rust-lang.org website. Even if you can’t give details about the product you are building we would still love to hear from you!
