Embedded World Talk – Getting Started with Real-Time Operating Systems
February 28 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 pm
Real-time embedded systems using 8 and 16 bit microcontrollers have traditionally used baremetal scheduling techniques to achieve their real-time performance. While these techniques can be used to develop nearly any embedded system, the proliferation of 32-bit microcontrollers and internet connected devices are forcing developers to revisit the way they are building embedded systems. The questions is no longer should I use an RTOS, but how can I most effectively design a system using an RTOS. In this session, attendees will explore how developers can leverage RTOSes to accelerate embedded system design, improve system robustness and understand what their embedded system is doing at a level of detail never previously attained. This lecture will review RTOS fundamentals in addition to discussing cutting edge topics such as task analysis, monitoring, debugging and common pitfalls.
