Hi all,

I am newbie to this freertos and ARM family processor.I have working with i.MX27 multimedia application processor for my project.I am very much interested in work with i.MX27 processor.
If i want to start my project in freertos,what are the files should be needed and where can i change the code for my application.
I have taken the STR91x as my base. I tried with the simulator as am not having the board now, with IAR 5.11 and the FreeRTOS 4.7.1 which compiles with IAR5.11. But the loop happens forever when i run, so i commented the line in 91x_Init.s file

LDR R1,[R0, #SCU_SYSSTATUS_OFST] ;Wait until PLL is Locked
ANDS R1, R1, #0x01
// BEQ Wait_Loop

As i'm working in the simulator why these codes wait for PLL to lock.
It should run without any wait or skip for simulators know.

The IAR simulator is a core simulator that does not attempt to simulate the PLL registers. I would therefore expect to have to comment out that line of code for the simulator to reach main(). There may be other lines that need commenting out also. I don't know if it is possible to run the code in the simulator. You would have to setup one of the IAR simulated interrupts to generate the tick for a start.
