FreeRTOS for ARM cortex-m$ FPGA

Hi All,

I have an FPGA based on ARM cortex-M4 from Polaris.
IDEs like Xilinx, IAR are also available and able to program FPGA with bitfile now.

I want to try FreeRTOS on it and couldn’t find which example to start with as many of the examples given in official release are targeted to specific board. Whereas our’s is a custom board with Cortex-M4 core.

Any suggestions to start good and finish it smoothly…???

The FreeRTOS port itself is identical on all Cortex-M4 parts. The only thing that changes is the project building the files. The following links might help:

If your M4 has a floating point unit then use the port files from the FreeRTOS/Source/portable/[compiler]/ARM_CM4F

If your M4 has a floating point unit then use the port files from the FreeRTOS/Source/portable/[compiler]/ARM_CM3
