Dear all,

I’m new to RTOS’s and operating systems. Thus, I’m new to FreeRTOS. I started to learn this subject from the begining.

To learn RTOS I’m planning to download the real time kernel and try it. However, I dont have a hardware for it. Eventhough, I have an hardware I dont know how to debug my code in a board that supports real time operating systems.

So,here comes my question:

Is there a server that a board is connected to this server and I’m gonna connect to this board through internet and try my code in there?

Best regards.

If you have a PC you can use the Keil simulator (ARM7/9/CM3), PIC24/dsPIC simulator or OpenWatcom (DOS .exe generated). You can also use either the Windows or Linux simulators. All these options allow you to experiment without any hardware.

Thank you for your reply.

Do you recommend Linux or Windows while learning FreeRTOS or
trying to learn real time operating systems.
