Update February 2014: Now based on FreeRTOS version 7.6.0 (Requires tools v13 or newer to build).


This is a port of FreeRTOS (website http://www.freertos.org) v6.0.2 to the XMOS XS1 architecture.

It should contain all the features available on FreeRTOS however not all of them are tested.


Features of FreeRTOS include:


- Pre-emptive scheduling (timeslices)

- Co-operative scheduling

- Delays

- Message queues

- Semaphores

Good work - will have to take a look at this implementation. I'm sure I will be back with more comments soon!

On two occasions I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.

Currently you can only run FreeRTOS at one thread on Core 0.
This is due to the fact that FreeRTOS shares its main code with a lot of other architecture ports and i left this code intact.

Hi Bianco,

I am currently doing an internship at XMOS... more specifically a benchmark for UAVs hardware platforms. Studying/comparing the traditional microprocessors with XMOS architecture! A lot of the times a RTOS is used.

I read your thesis and I look to the code done... nice job.... very well written and a really good work.
I have just on question for you... the OS that you developed who do I need to talk with on XMOS to have access to it if you don't mind of course!

Thank you
Best
Goncalo
