Product Details

FreeRTOS is a free, scalable real-time operating system provided by Real Time Engineers Ltd. This product adds support for the Analog Devices ADuCM302x, ADuCM4x5x, BF7xx and SC5xx (ARM Cortex-A5 and SHARC+ cores) processor families to the FreeRTOS product.

FreeRTOS is a low memory operating system developed for embedded systems. It supports many common operating system concepts such as timers, events, mutexes, semaphores tasks and semaphores; all of which can be created dynamically or statically. It has a scheduler which can be configured to be preemptive or co-operative, with optional time slicing.

FreeRTOS is royalty free and is provided with non-GPL licensing.

FreeRTOS for Analog Devices Processors is supported by three development environments; CrossCore Embedded Studio (via GCC), Keil and IAR.

FreeRTOS for Analog Devices Processors provides additional FreeRTOS content to support the ADuCM302x, ADuCM4x5x, ADSP-BF7xx and ADSP-SC5xx (ARM Cortex-A5 and SHARC+ cores) processor families. FreeRTOS for Analog Devices Processors installs on top of the FreeRTOS product and provides out of the box demo examples for the ADuCM3029, ADuCM3027, ADuCM4050 EZ-KITs, ADSP-BF7xx and ADSP-SC5xx (for both ARM Cortex-A5 and SHARC+ cores) EZ-KITs
