This page presents some projects that use the GNU Development Chain.
NanoK is a very small kernel for the 68hc11. It works with the GCC port.
It is maintained by Yann Gouy (yann_gouy at yahoo.fr):
2. Ethernet on 68HC11
Tom Parker (tom at wiresncode.com) designed an Ethernet
board using a Cirrus/Crystal CS8900
controller and plugged it to an 68HC11-F1 board. He wrote a small
IP-stack and Ethernet controller in C. This must be compiled under
GNU/Linux with the GCC port (due to the use of Linux network headers).
Tom Parker created a small yahoo group for news and discussions at
Ingo Beckmann (ib at ingoBeckmann.de) has ported uC/OS-II RTOS
for work with the GNU tool chain.
See http://www.micrium.com to
obtain Jean J. Labrosse's uc/OS. Contact Ingo to obtain the GNU port.
Mike Gruber (mike at grubinski.com) wrote a small example
using Ingo's uC/OS port to blink a LED from a task. You can get his
4. The GameGirl
For a quick intro, the GameGirl is a designed-from-scratch portable
gaming console. The focus of the project was using a Motorolla 68HC12A4
as the core brain, and developing a simple but useful "GameGirl SDK" for
it (which includes graphics, sound, timers, input, and networking with
other consoles), with a simple C API.
The maintainer is Loban Amaan Rahman (loban at earthling.net).
The GNU Embedded Libraries is a collection of embedded libraries and
examples of 68HC11/68HC12 programs in C, assembly to show how to use
the GNU development chain.

6. OS - A Real Time Operating System for the Motorola MC68HC11
OS is a simple round-robbin time slice operating system.
OS has a fixed number of tasks, eight.
OS is written by Thomas Dean and is available at
7. EBCS - Embedded Bathroom Control System
EBCS is a 68HC11 embedded system used to control some bathroom
equipments (fan, light, ...). It displays the temperature and humidity
and controls the bathroom fan.
EBCS sources and hardware schematics are available at
8. PF11 - An ANS Forth Implementation for the 68HC11
PF11 is a 16-bit implementation of the Forth programming language
for the Motorola 68HC11 microcontroller.
PF11 is provided by Andrew Sterian and you can get
sources and binaries at
