Hi Markus,
Were you able to find your code for LPC2478 RTOS?
Thanks,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,
no problem. I will send you a ZIP file with my workspace. I use eclipse and the yargato tool-chain.
Best Regards
Markus

Hi Markus,
I got the development board from olimex LPC2478, got the LCD and almost everything else working with WINARM, wanted to try freertos with it. are you willing to share any of your source code?

thanks in advance
Daniel

I made the experience that you have to go down to 36MHz to get a really stable system. It is a little bit disappointing to run only on have the speed of the micro. EA claims that this issue has been fixed in the board version 1.1.

However I am not able to display anything within an FreeRTOS application on the TFT display. I guess it is due to the different *.ld file and startup code. All other source code I included successful in the FreeRTOS application.
