FreeRTOS already has an API. I have no idea what you are talking about.

No, you can’t. The total amount of APIs was determined by God - it’s not possible to create any more APIs than those already existing.

Sure you can make your own API. But why? What’s wrong with the standard API, and how could you improve it by wrapping it with another API? Or don’t you want to use the standard-API, then you’re going to write a OS from scratch. Good luck, wrong forum.

Have you already used FreeRTOS, played with one of the demos?
What do you think an API is?
