Posted by mohanraoksm on December 2, Make any changes porying to the two functions highlighted in the paragraph above, then write a very simple program to check that the LED outputs are working. Have you downloaded the example code in SVN?
FreeRTOS Porting Guide
Dear John, is there a demo application for the same you mentioned? It is suggested that pxPortInitialiseStack is the first function to be implemented. But the only problem is if i run directly, the code goes to abort mode. When i see the port. Therefore it would have helped a lot if you said which architecture you wanted to port to, then I might have been able to suggest which port to look at as a reference.
Identifying files that are specific to the compiler being used: Fail Safe File System: How to go to my second task from here? Richard 2, 5 6. Then you can add in blocking code, etc.
I am unable to understand how asm file gets intergated to c code here and where from vPortStartFirstTask ; is portlng.
FreeRTOS – Porting a FreeRTOS demo to a different hardware platform
As your code is compiling and running, up to a point anyway, I presume you are already building the required asm file. I added new code as mentioned by you An existing demo application should be used as a starting point for the conversion exercise, therefore first check you can successfully compile the existing demo application exactly as downloaded – before making any modifications.
There are freerros plenty of other FreeRTOS ports already in existence and it is suggested that these are used as a reference.
Sometimes people build the files but don’t actually download them to the microcontroller. Use these archive pages to search previous posts. Thread aware file system Hint: The function prvSetupHardware within main.
In either case the first code executed after the jump must be the FreeRTOS context save code, not any compiler provided intermediary code.
Take a look at the many existing ParTest. There are two ways this can be done: When i try to compile and run the code, it doesn’t give any error. This simple program need not make use of FreeRTOS – all that is of interest at this stage is ensuring the LEDs work – so for now comment out the existing main function and replace it with something similar to the following example: These are documented under ‘ Supported Devices ‘ in the menu frame on the left.
But the processor is in supervisor state at this time also. The standard ‘flash test’ tasks are often used initially as a multitasking equivalent of a ‘hello world’ type feeertos.
How to overcome this? Fail Safe File System: I have the above code written for LPC microcontroller. For others those with less flexible features an assembler file is also required. If you are converting an existing demo application to run on a microcontroller that poeting less ROM then you may need to reduce the number of demo application files that are included in the build. You can create a stub file from one of these portkng files by simply deleting the function and macro bodies.
First have just one task that does this: You don’t say which compiler you are using, but from the syntax I am guessing I love guessing it is Keil? Now it goes to vTask2 directly and after few loops in the task it again goes to Data abort mode Delivered online or on-site. I stepped thorugh the assembly and when i step with debugger connected the execution goes to asm. Sign up to receive notifications of new support topics then help where you can. I have added back in manually] Lisa, Sorry – didn’t know you’d replied.
If you put a break point on the call to vTaskDelayso the program stops before calling it, does it get to the break point?
Amazon FreeRTOS Porting Guide
I would recommend starting with a simpler system. In which case you would need to also include an assembly file in your project – which is called portASM. Have you tried stepping through the assembly code for vPortStartFirstTask? The standard ‘flash test’ tasks are a set of 3 very simple tasks – each of which toggles a single LED at a fixed frequency, with each task using a different frequency.
Thread aware file system.
