FreeRTOS technical information

Posted by hellblessar on July 11, 2017

Hello, I'm student and I'm writing graduation work about RTOSs in industrial controllers. I would like t focus on FreeRTOS in my work but I have to compare it with other systems. I'm looking for some informations like in table below: https://ibb.co/g4m9cv I'm also looking for informations about maximum amount of tasks. I'd like to use in my practical part EVK1100 board from Atmel with AVR32 microchip so technical information may be connected with this family of microcontrollers. Greetings.

Timing like that chart is extreamely device and configuration sensitive, which is likely one reason Real Time Engineering's license requires getting permission before publishing statistics like that (without a lot of background information, that table is totally worthless).

The biggest thing that will limit the number of tasks is the memory required to support them, and again, that is extremely application and configuration sensitve. I find that generally the application needs tend to vastly out shadow the FreeRTOS overheads,

So, aren't they any generally specifications about this for AVR32 architecture? Is there any way to check it?
