RTOS for LPC family

Started by didier_edna January 18, 2005

Hello,

I'm quite new to actually using any RTOS and the ARM familly, but the
LPC2k series look wonderfull, concerning speed and capabillities.

I was wondering, anyone know some good RTOS supporting the LPC2k,
preferrably with the IAR compiler, since it produces such compact code.

I was thinking of CMX RTX (www.cmx.com), but maybe someone has a
better sugestion?
I tried Ecos, but it did not that much, and it was hell getting the
tools up.

Thanks in advance,

Didier

Didier,

You could try uC/OS-II! The ARM port for the same is
free (which includes LPC210x HAL) & can be downloaded
from my site. Currently it supports gcc & ARM tools
(ADS & SDT).

Well tested & takes very little ROM / RAM.

Cheers,

You might want to consider debugging in selecting an RTOS. CMX has a plug
in, making debug easier.
I hacked FreeRTOS to compile under IAR. That was a bit of a chore. I will
be contributing that conversion back to FreeRTOS soon. I like it. Tiny,
just the core features I need without any fluff.

Didier,

you might want to have a look at uC-OSII from http://www.micrium.com
as well. Very small, very low cost to get started, just by the book.
There is a one time charge if you want to use it for a commercial
application (don't know exactly how much) but as I remember it was the
lowest cost professional supported RTOS I saw

Rowley provides the Crossworks Tasking libary with their toolset. It
is pre-emtive and has some nice features like setting up the VIC
automatically. In general, the Rowely tools are very good.

AFAIK uCOS is low-cost, price of the book for private use.

uCOSII is not low-cost at all (it depends who wants to buy it).

> lowest cost professional supported RTOS I saw

I doubt that, mail me privatly if you are interessted in our prices :-) --
