I am looking at the possibility of doing some development work for a new customer and he wants to use an OS. I am a big fan of open source in general and would like to use FreeRTOS if possible.
There are two main issues really for us to use FreeRTOS on the Coldfire JM128.
1. I am concerned about doing the port myself as I have limited embedded OS experience. I would prefer to have a third part do this for me I think. Can anyone recommend someone who would do a good job at a sensible price so that I could concentrate on the application itself.
2. Is USB OTG supported in FreeRTOS. The customer is insisting on being able to upgrade the firmware in the field by sticking a USB stick in and having it reprogram itself. I’m not yet clear in my mind how this could be accomplished, but aside from that, I am not even sure whether on the go is supported in FreeRTOS.
Very grateful indeed for any pointers.
