Is it possible to pause FreeRTOS?

Posted by kuku2010 on January 18, 2010
I use FreeRTOS in our AVR32 project.

I have a section of codes that are *VERY* time-sensitive, so I would like to pause FreeRTOS temporary while polling a hardware counter, when the counter expires, I will resume RTOS

Is this possible?

Thanks!

If it is really time critical, you probably want to disable the interrupts, so nothing can interfere with the code. No interrupts, not possibility of preemption..
