freeRTOS on AVR32

Posted by Daryl Fortney on May 29, 2009
I am starting a development with the Atmel EVK-1101 evaluation kit using the AT32UC3B0256 AVR32 processor. I installed the AVR32 Studio 2.1 eclipse environment and loaded the freeRTOS example application; however, when i run it (debugging using the gdb/JTAGICE mkII) it does not do anything (no leds flashing, nothing). if i halt the processor it indicates a 'illegal instruction' error as though there is some assembly code that is bad somewhere or perhaps it is just off running amok. Is there a bug in this example code?

I would like to start my development on top of a minimal freeRTOS project so I do not have to set everything up the first time. A basic freeRTOS 'hello world' out a serial port will do...

any help?

I forgot to mention that most of the other examples that came with the studio seem to work.

Are you using the FreeRTOS code provided by Atmel? The code provided by FreeRTOS has some comments on the 'known issues' page I think because it was written with a different AVR32 revision.

i am using the example code that comes with the AVR32 Studio (eclipse) setup. I would really like to run this example on the evk1101 as I am in the process of trying to convince mgmt why having an rtos is the way to go for the development of our new project that is happening right now.

if we choose to go with freeRTOS I am sure we would need some commercial support. is that provided directly by the author of freeRTOS?

I head the support team at WITTENSTEIN - so ultimately, the answer is Yes.
