I have ported the FreeRTOS for the MSP430F5438 mcu and toolchain Code Composer Essentials. Now I’m working on demo application for my port. There is several tasks already working on my development board (MSP-EXP430F5438). It is FlashTasks, IntegerMathTasks, PolledQueueTasks and the task, that checks that all the other tasks are still operating as expected, and that no errors have been detected.
There is only 2 leds on my devboard, but it have an I2C LCD. So, I thought that I should use it in demos to my port. Writing my own drivers to this LCD will take too much time end efforts, so I decided to use the TI’s demo files, that contains this driver already. But this code isn’t effective, in particular for using in RTOS, because it contains constructs such:
for(int i=0; i<pack_length; i++)
Therefore I have a dilemma. At the beginning of my work on port I intended to use TI’s files as is, but now I forced to edit them. And what about programming notation used in the FreeRTOS? Should I rewrite all this sample code from TI with this notation? (there is a lot of code should to be rewritten, and it will take a lot of my time)
Another approach is in creating some process, that will call original functions from TI’s samples. But it seems to me isn’t very good, because this functions throw out a lot of mcu’s cycles.
So what should I do to create an adequate port for my mcu, toolchain, end devboard in current situation?
