Posted by vead on June 26, 2017

Hello I am little bit confused I don’t have idea how to use free rtos for microcontroller. Before writing rtos program. I want to understand basic things means how to use free rtos source code I have seen there are many sample examples but I don't understand how to use free rtos source code. Suppose I have cortex m0 microcontroller and LCD and if I want to develop rtos program how and where to start ??

I would recommend starting with the book - the first few chapters provide some orientation.

[ I am not an expert ont this but ... ]

FreeRTOS is an Open Source library, you are free to use and change it, as long as your code remains Open Source as well. In case you want to use FreeRTOS in a commercial non-Open-Source project, that is OK, but you'll need to purchase a license to use it that way.

Well, the whole store is written here

Most of all, I hope that you have a good time using FreeRTOS.

That only applies to the RTOS source code, not application code that is using FreeRTOS.

Actually not so. FreeRTOS can be used for free in closed source application. The linkage exception says you can distribute products that use FreeRTOS 'under the terms of your choice', so the FreeRTOS license does not affect the license of any other software in your system, and does not impose any restrictions or requirements on how products that use FreeRTOS are sold or distributed.
