I like the fact that he has annotated the listings listings that demonstrate how to use the RTOS with numbers that refer to descriptions in the text. Independent review by author and embedded systems expert Jack Ganssle from Embedded Systems Programming Magazine, Januaryp To find the highest priority task ready to run, the scheduler simply has to find the lowest priority number with its corresponding bit set in OSRdyTbl.
In addition to their value as references to the kernel, they are extremely detailed and highly readable design studies particularly useful for embedded systems students. Mark Martin rated it really liked it Jul 02, Poh Kit Chong rated it liked it Sep 23, This type of scheduler, where each task is mapped to a unique priority from a fixed pool of priority numbers, is called a bitmap scheduler.
If you are looking for an exposition of real-time concepts, but not planning on running the RTOS, you may not get your money’s worth.
These books are written for serious embedded systems programmers, consultants, hobbyists, and students interested in understanding the inner workings of a real-time kernel. Or you can call the extended task creation function and pass extended user data and other options.

Chris marked it as to-read Feb 12, Jim rated it liked it May 07, While documenting the design and implementation of the kernel, the books also discuss many related development issues: Ray Hwang rated it did not like it Aug 27, There are no discussion topics boik this book yet.
An RTOS manages the processing time of a microcontroller or microprocessor by allowing the total work pending to be divided into logical units called tasks. The lowest priority task, which is always ready to run, is the idle task OSTaskIdleso it will execute when other tasks are not ready to run because they are waiting for an event such as a semaphore or mutex to become available, or a message to arrive at a mailbox, pipe, or queue. Also, by defining an event as common, ucls-ii single event can signal multiple tasks.
Saurabh rated it it was amazing Mar 24, The application examples in this book implement increasingly advanced functionality and enable readers to develop their own prototypes using the expandable Evaluation Board. He also provides useful code fragments that indicate how to write tasks and use the basic kernel services, which are handy when the project you’re labrodse on is due yesterday.
MicroC/OS-II: The Real Time Kernel
Together with the IAR Systems Embedded Workbench for ARM development tools, the evaluation board provides everything necessary to enable the reader to be up and running quickly, as well as a fun and educational experience, resulting in a high-level of proficiency in a short time. This version is more than a simple upgrade; it appears to be a total rewrite. Chris added it Jan 05, Speaking of extended options, either the pointer to the bottom of the task stack or the stack size option is unnecessary, since either one combined with the standard pointer to the top of the task stack yields the other one.
A task is like an independent program that has its own stack and register context; it is usually implemented as an infinite loop or a function that contains a system call to the kernel to de-schedule the task before the function returns.

Daniel marked it as to-read Jul 07, Functions for managing a user-defined memory heap are also provided. Related to kernel timing are system functions that allow the user to delay a task for a specified number of ticks, resume a task, and get and set the time of day, but I won’t examine these functions here. It has been ported to a vast number of microprocessors. Michael uxos-ii it Sep 09, While documenting the design and implementation of the kernel, this book also covers the many related development issues such as how to: Want to teach people how to write clean code?
Here is an example of a typical main procedure and first task to run:.
If you are using the book as a real-time textbook, keep in mind that not all RTOSs use a bitmap scheduler, and, in fact, often opt for a multiple-priority queue-based scheduler to allow the jeqn to create an arbitrary number of tasks or create multiple tasks with the same priority. Areas for Future Improvement The user should probably be given the option to use a different scheduling algorithm e.
