I have one query regarding FreeRTOS, While reading FAQ on http://www.FreeRTOS.org/FAQHelp.html following are the doubts.
- i found that there is written as
“All FreeRTOS ports use a timer interrupt, and some FreeRTOS ports use multiple interrupts. Use the provided demo projects as an example.”
What does it mean? Is it like it uses timer interrupt to handle schedule task?
- Each byte of the task stack is set to 0xa5 when the task is created, making it relatively simple to see if a stack overflow has occurred.
why only 0xa5 value? means is there any specific reason or only to compare?
