how to manage queue and semaphore

Posted by ephobb on December 28, 2015

hi, I m bit confused while implementing queue and semaphore. my scenario is as follows. I have three task. Two are from same prioirity and one is having higher prioirity. I want to send data from three task to queue. i will receive the data from queue to fourth task, where i will send data to LCD. I can't understand how to manage the queue.

xQueueHandle lcd_queue=0;

lcdqueue = xQueueCreate(20,sizeof(uint8t));

xcreate(task1,"T1",NULL,1,NULL); xcreate(task2,"T2",NULL,1,NULL); xcreate(task3,"T3",NULL,2,NULL); xcreate(Send_lcd,"LCD",NULL,1,NULL); // This task will send data to LCD and receive the data from queue.

Use xQueueSendToBack() to send to the queue and xQueueReceive() to receive from the queue. No need for a semaphore. http://www.freertos.org/xQueueSendToBack.html http://www.freertos.org/a00118.html
