Hello,

I’m using FreeRTOS on a commercial product.
My project uses FreeRTOS code and proprietary code. No project source code are distributed outside my company.

Is there something that I’ve to do in order to fully respect FreeRTOS license agreements in this kind of situation ???

Someone tell me that I have to notify ( for example on user manual ) that product uses FreeRTOS inside.
Is it correct ? I’ve to give other informations ?

Thank you.

Who told you you had to notify somebody? The FreeRTOS license has a
linkage exception that says when FreeRTOS is linked into an application
the application can be distributed under the terms of your choice, which
means without effecting how any other software you link into the
application is licensed, and without imposing any restrictions or
requirements on you (so no requirement to state anything). ‘of your
choice’ means you decide.

Link works fine for me. Ensure you are not including the full
