Suspending a higher priority Task

Posted by sanhardik on March 16, 2015

Dear All, We are trying a code on Atmel SAM D21 for FreeRTOS. We have defined 2 tasks, one is a UART task that writes a string on the terminal and other one toggles a LED. The UART task has a higher priority than the LED task. When the UART task is suspended using vTaskSuspend(uarttaskhandle), the LED task which has a lower priority doesnt execute.

Is this expected ?
