I wish if I would understand the concept of the tick rate in uIP_Task routine used in FreeRTOS demo as below timer_set() function.
timer_set( &periodic_timer, configTICK_RATE_HZ / 2 );
If configTICK_RATE was defined as 1000, does it mean the periodic_timer will get expired by every half second (500 ticks)? Or something else? I wonder if any one can help me to understand it.
