Low-cost microcontrollers are being used more and more often in embedded applications that previously may have used a microprocessor. Microcontrollers often run a real-time operating system (RTOS) rather than a full operating system like Linux.
In this webinar we introduce FreeRTOS, a popular RTOS for microcontrollers that has been ported to 35 microcontroller platforms. We will:
- Discuss what an RTOS is and why you would need one
- Look at the key features of FreeRTOS, the platforms it supports, licensing, and some of the available libraries, add-ons, and OS variants
- Show C++ code examples and cover some tips on how to get started with FreeRTOS development
Software developers or managers interested in using FreeRTOS on microcontrollers won’t want to miss this!
