Hi All,

 

I have been using freeRTOS from the freeRTOS.org website, i.e., i downloaded the file and deleted files which i dont need and added the folder into my project. its working fine for what i have been doing.

I just realised that Atmel also provides the freeRTOS in the ASF wizard as a mini real time kernel, and seems to compile properly with no extra steps to do after it has been added.

My question was that is there any difference between the two? or less functionality between the two? because i saw that the freeRTOS from the ASF wizard had a few less files.

i am currently using it on the SAM4E-EK board.

You sure about that? I seem to remember older versions of ASF had it but then Atmel withdrew it from later versions? (perhaps for the very reason that ASF could not keep up with the official version?)

 

Anyway moving thread from AVR to ARM...

Atmel Start shows several FreeRTOS examples for SAM and atmega4809

The key would be to compare filename diffs between the two dirs.

I see, i guess i can do that. The only reason i ask, is its a bit easier to just add it through the ASF wizard, but i guess adding the files from the freertos.org would provide the "all the files".
