Course Overview:

RTOSes have become a critical component in IoT devices to manage the devices real-time behavior. Leveraging a connected RTOS framework can dramatically accelerate development but it can also cause delays and budget overruns if developers don’t understand the frameworks architecture and how to build their application around it.

In this course, we will examine the Amazon FreeRTOS framework and learn how to build an extensible and reusable application architecture around it. We will examine how Amazon Web Services works and the steps necessary to configure IoT edge nodes and handle bi-directional communication with the cloud. Attendees will also learn how about how to optimize their design for size, performance and energy. Each session includes a hands-on lab to help developers get experience with the concepts we discuss during the lectures. We will use Percepios’ Tracealyzer to analyze Amazon FreeRTOS.

The course is taught in a convenient, hands-on style that provides developers with ample time to not just absorb the material but begin to apply it. The course is offered live online and in self-paced formats.


The course consists of the following sessions:

  • Session 1 – The Amazon FreeRTOS Architecture
  • Session 2 – All about AWS
  • Session 3 – Subscribing and Publishing
  • Session 4 – Command Processsing, Performance and Optimization
  • Session 5 – OTA Updates
