If you want to mention something in the next newsletter, send us a pull request!
- The embedded showcase gained its first entry! The rusty clock project, an alarm clock that features pressure, temperature and humidity on an e-paper display and 5 programmable alarms. We are still looking for cool embedded projects to serve that can serve as examples of what can be done in Rust. Don't hesitate to submit yours!
- OxidizeConf, the first embedded Rust conference, has announced speakers! Check out the lineup here!
- Antoine van Gelder wrote about using Peripheral Access Crates to program interrupts on the STM32F3 Discovery board
- James Munns gave a talk at Rust Berlin about what happens before

@jjkt is working on
zmu, an emulator for microcontroller based systems. Zmu is work in progress but can already emulate substantial parts of Cortex M - based MCUs core architecture features.
@japaric released v0.1.2 of
cargo-call-stack, a static stack usage analyzer, and published a blog post with details about its implementation.
Wesley Moore wrote a blog post about getting Rust running on the TI SensorTag, see the project on sourcehut!
@tarcieri released a board support crate for the Adafruit NeoTrellis M4 along with a platform-independent driver for its adxl343 accelerometer and support for using the accelerometer to detect the device's orientation.
If you have an embedded project or blog post you would like to have featured in the Embedded WG Newsletter, make sure to add it to the next newsletter, we would love to show it off!
