I examined FreeRTOS in depth a little bit the last few days and came across some questions I’d like to discuss with you. I will start a new thread for each question, because they belong to different categories. I also need some webspace for uploading images to explain my other questions, it will take while before I will post them. So lets beginn with the first simple one:
In the FreeRTOS configuration I specified 8 priorities as: #define configMAX_PRIORITIES ( ( unsigned portBASE_TYPE ) 8 ).
Then I created a task with a priority of 41. Well, compiling the sources and running it (on ATmega128) shows that everything is working well. Even the task with 41 priority. Examination with a logic analyzer showed, that this task executes as a task with mid Priority such as 3 or 4.
Can anyone explain that behaviour?
