Can FreeRTOS run on Qemu for ARM Cortex M?

Posted by hyteh on October 1, 2017


I was wondering if FreeRTOS can run on Qemu for ARM, preferably on the Cortex-M series?

If so, are there any tutorials that can help me get started on setting things up? I'm planning on running qemu on Ubuntu/Linux environment as well.


Can FreeRTOS run on Qemu for ARM Cortex M?

Posted by rtel on October 1, 2017

Yes, Qemu emulates the Cortex-M, and FreeRTOS will run on any Cortex-M (0, 0+, 3, 4, 4F, and 7) that has enough RAM. No porting is required, but you will have to set up a project. QEMU configuration is out of scope for this forum though I'm afraid, but here are some links that might help setting up a project:
