How to: EEPROM bc_config

bc_config functions helps you to easily create a variable or structure of variables that are saved in internal EEPROM memory.

Library will automatically initialize your configuration when:

  • it runs first time

  • if the signature parameter is different

  • if the new configuration structure has different length

  • if the EEPROM is corrupted

Doxygen documentation of bc_config


The first parameter, signature , is unique number for your firmware. This way if you load a different firmware to the Core Module that is using configuration structure with the same length, the library will see that and initialize the confguration properly again.

The last parameter *init_config can be:

  • NULL - the config structure is zeroed when initialized

  • pointer to structure - the init_config is copied to the config structure when initialized

// Load configuration
bc_config_init(0x12345678, &config, sizeof(config), NULL);

Code Example

// Example structure that save configuration of PIR detector
typedef struct config_t
uint16_t report_interval;
uint8_t pir_sensitivity;
uint16_t pir_deadtime;
} config_t;
config_t config;
void application_init()
// Load configuration
bc_config_init(0x12345678, &config, sizeof(config), NULL);
// Change parameter
config.report_interval = 500;
// Save config to EEPROM
// Reset configuration
