Hi ,

Looking at FreeRTOS+IO Demo and it requires a BaseBoard not sure what  to order? Some sites call the lpc1769 a base board?
Hardware platform and software tools
Both demos are configured to run on the LPCXpresso LPC1769 CPU board fitted to an LPCXpresso base board. The LPCXpresso IDE is used to build, flash, and debug the application.

Thanks in advance.

The software timer module is not hardware dependent (there is no port layer), so you should just be able to upgrade your project to the latest FreeRTOS version to make the software timer functionality available.  To do that, just drop the latest FreeRTOS files over the top of the files in your build (always recommended to take a backup first, of course).
