GNU compilers and Renesas[1] H8 series microcontrollers

The site is run by PC Services for the benefit of all developers using the GNU C/C++ compiler for the Renesas[1] (formerly Hitachi) H8, H8S, H8SX and H8 Tiny family of processors.

This site used to also run a mailing list but due to various changes in spam levels and plethora of forums being setup, this has since stopped. Mailing list may get resurrected at a later date when various issues such as Data Protection, anti-spam harvesting and other issues can be resolved with web front end for those who insist that everything must be a web site.

For some outline of Renesas H8 see wikipedia.

Whilst this compiler is primarily Linux and DOS/Windows based other GNU compilers exist on many platforms for cross-platform development. Some of the links also refer to Linux based compilers and utilities.
