Where is pvPortMalloc for ATMega323?

Posted by jff on March 2, 2011

I'm currently learning how FreeRTOS is structured and reading its source code. I thought that each port had to define its own pvPortMalloc function, but I can't find its definition for the ATMega323 port. How is memory allocated in this case?

Apologies if I am missing something trivial. Thanks in advance,

Each port does not need to define its own pvPortMalloc, as they have been implemented in portable code. In the portable directory there is a sub directory MemMang which has code for the various options of memory management.

Oh, I have missed that. Thank you for your time, Richard!
