Idle Hook example

Posted by Samarte on February 1, 2009

I am searching for a student work a code (real example) for an idle hook, that is used for power saving modes like to put the procsessor into a low-power mode.

Thanks a lot :-)

void vApplicationIdleHook( void )

That is it. The implementation of sleep() is dependent on the processor but will normally be a single asm instruction.
