Has anyone ported FreeRTOS to the Max32 Arduino board ?
Can the MAX32 be programmed as bare metal? If so there should nothing stopping you using FreeRTOS on it.
Does it use MPLAB? How do you connect to and program the board?
Not sure if it can be connected directly to MPLAB, but I think so, just can’t figure out how yet.
Just if someone had already done it would save me a bit time as I’m fairly new to this (both 32bit and RTOS stuff)
I would be very interested in this myself. I will have a look at the docs for the hardware, although I don’t have one myself. Please keep this thread updated with progress - it would make a great FreeRTOS Interactive contribution, or even maybe a fully supported demo if time allows.
Yes you can connect the the board to MPLAB, tho at the moment its a bit of work with soldering a ICSP port on the board and you will need the ICSP to PC bit, like the PICkit 3 debugger/programmer.
One of the greatest issues with the whole Arduino thing is lack of any form of an RTOS, imho. Separate issue tho.
