FreeRTOS from Real Time Engineers Ltd. has become something of a de facto standard for microcontrollers, with over 100000 downloads annually. It is professionally developed, strictly quality controlled, robust, supported, and free to use in commercial products. LPCOpen is a comprehensive set of drivers and middleware, available from NXP®. Richard Barry, the creator of FreeRTOS, will take you through the basics, explain where and how using an RTOS will improve your design, and show you how to get started using examples from the LPCOpen platform and the LPCXpresso IDE.
