System Tick for FreeRTOS

Posted by Lawrence Song on February 7, 2010
Hi, I'm trying make the transition from a uC/OS II based STM32 to FreeRTOS. I remembered that I must configure the the tick source (a timer, usually) and tick interrupt service routine for uc/OS II. Is there a similar thing I must do for FreeRTOS or is it already taken care of? I'm using one of the demo projects targeted at STM32 Cortex M3 cores.

It is done for you. The Cortex M3 ports all use the core SysTick timer. It is started by the kernel.

That's good to know. Thanks!
