Simple and self contained FreeRTOS projects
[See also the hardware independent
starter functions provided.]
Note that recently created official demo projects include both simply blinky and comprehensive build options
The comprehensive example projects that are included in the main FreeRTOS zip
file download demonstrate a lot of FreeRTOS features, including
tasks, direct to task
notifications, queues, semaphores,
recursive semaphores, software timers, and more.
The examples therefore create a lot
of tasks, and use a lot of API functions.
This page links to some simpler and self contained example projects and application notes.
These only demonstrate a few features as a starting point. Many of the newer FreeRTOS demos also
include simple 'blinky' style build configurations too.
If you find these simpler projects useful, then please also ensure to view the
FreeRTOS quick start guide. Also, you may be interested in the
FreeRTOS tutorial books
and education kits,
as these are provided with a set of 18 (or 16, depending on the book edition) examples that start
with extremely simple demonstrations to explain basic concepts, then gradually build
up to include more and more FreeRTOS features.
Links to the currently available application notes and simple example projects
are provided below.
Simple demo that runs in the Keil simulator
This simple demo can be executed in the simulator that comes with the Keil
MDK. No hardware purchase is necessary.

Simple demo for the LPCXpresso LPC1768/LPC1769
This simple demo uses the free LPCXpresso IDE, and the projects run on the very
low cost LPCXpresso hardware.
