I read with great interest the details of the ‘FreeRTOS’ in your web site.
I’m considering to transform 2 projects I’m involved in, to use an RTOS, and I have a few questions:
The first project is system based on a PC104 system (Using 486 time processor at 100MHz). The SBC used contains an on board 10/100 Ethernet port used by the system. The code is written in BorlandC v4.52 & uses WATTCP to implement a TCP/IP link to another computer. Can I still use WATTCP while implementing FreeRTOS ? If not, is there any other option (Still using the available Ethernet interface)?
What is the context-switching time expected ?
How FreeRTOS deals with the various PC interrupts (System clock, HD etc.)
The second project is based on the same Cynal processor shown at the web site. I use the KEIL C & their development environment (uVision3) - Can I still use it while implementing FreeRTOS ?
