A converter tool that converts Atmel's atdf files into svd. The primary usecase for this is to then use the svd files with svd2rust to create safe abstractions for register access.

Install atdf2svd using

$ cargo install -f atdf2svd


Automatic Changes

There are two "post-processors" running after the conversion (patch.rs):

  • signals_to_port_fields: Patches the registers for all PORTx peripherals to contain fields for each existing pin. Pin IDs are taken from the <signals /> tag of the port instance.
  • remove_unsafe_cpu_regs: Removes the SREG(Status Register) and SP(Stack Pointer) registers as they should not be safely accessible.

Manual Changes

Unfortunately, the provided atdf files are often not completely correct or contain undescriptive names. One big issue is that enumerated values are often just named VAL_0xXX. I recommend patching the generated svd files using the patch tool written by the stm32-rs project.
