    Getting started with RTOS

    Hello forum,
    I've worked for almost 3 years with Atmel's AVR, Cortex-M3, Cortex-M4 microcontrollers. I never tried to do something with RTOS, though.
    I decided to expand this field and I'm looking for a book or books or some entry point regarding RTOS to learn few things about it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Getting started with RTOS

    Thanks! I forgot to mention that I'd like something more basic for start, something more generic, not a theory-documentation of a particular distribution.
    In the meantime I will take a look into freeRTOS.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Getting started with RTOS

    Maybe you can start looking at this http://www.freertos.org/, there is a tutorial on that site. I work on FPGA designs, but in places I've worked they've used either freeRTOS, VxWorks, or MicroC/OS-?.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Then look at the wiki page on RTOS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-t...erating_system.

    Primarily the RTOS has to do three things: Scheduling, thread switching, and interrupt handling. How it's done/used with your code immediately becomes non-generic as it is implementation specific.
