Enabling/Disabling Interrupts

Regarding my previous post on the interrupt crashing the FreeRTOS tasks, I went and research on the method used for enabling and disabling interrupts on AEMB through software. There are two simple functions used to do the job, which are portDISABLE_INTERRUPTS() and portENABLE_INTERRUPTS(). These two functions will disable and enable Read more…

Interrupt Behaviour

I would like to look deeper into the application of FreeRTOS interrupts on the latest version of AEMB. It is important to be able to clearly identify the context switching by the interrupt on both threads of AEMB. To look more into the interrupts, the tasks are written with longer Read more…

Different Priorities

The task priority of FreeRTOS is tested on the new AEMB processor. The previous programs tested all contains tasks of equal priorities with the idle task. Therefore, higher priority tasks are to be tested to see their effect on the new AEMB processor. Will the higher priority tasks act independent Read more…

AEMB Multithread Dissection

This week main project is to port FreeRTOS to the newer AEMB. In the previous weeks, the AEMB processor only fully utilizes one thread. It was the older version and the newer version actually fully utilizes two threads. I was instructed to make the necessary changes so that FreeRTOS will Read more…

Integrating FreeRTOS with C++

FreeRTOS has been using C language as its base programming language ever since it started. So, we decided to try using C++ with FreeRTOS. One of the advantages which C++ provides to FreeRTOS is the usage of class. By using class, users can supposedly create task with less syntax and Read more…

Code Compilation

As mentioned in the previous post, the AEMB code has to be updated. The AEMB Demo code needs to be able to run on the latest FreeRTOS V8.0.1. There are a lot of changes since V7.1.1. and these changes need to be implemented on AEMB as well. First of all, Read more…
