Richard Barry, "Using The FreeRTOS Real Time Kernel - Microchip PIC32 Edition"
English | ISBN: 1446171086 | 2010 | 175 pages | PDF | 12 MB
FreeRTOS is a truly free (even for commercial applications) small footprint, portable, preemptive, open source, real time kernel that has been designed specifically for use on embedded microcontrollers. With more than 77,500 downloads during 2009 - FreeRTOS has become one of the most popular real time kernels available. This book is a concise, step by step, 'hands on' tutorial guide to using the FreeRTOS real time kernel. It describes both general multitasking concepts and FreeRTOS specifics by presenting and explaining numerous examples that are written using the FreeRTOS API. Full source code for all the examples is provided in an accompanying .zip file. The PIC32 edition includes sixteen examples written specifically for the PIC32 using the free MPLAB C Compiler for PIC32 MCUs and the free MPLAB IDE. The projects target the low cost PIC32 USB Starter Kit II (Microchip part number DM320003-2, and available from the FreeRTOS shop) development board with a PIC32MX795F512L-80I/PT microcontroller. This book is a step by step 'hands on' guide. It does not contain a complete API reference. An API reference manual is available in a separate document. nitroflare
