Learn Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) in embedded applications. This course prepares students to write real-time event-driven applications running under an RTOS. The uCOS RTOS is used as an example which will be examined at the C source code level. Major topics include: basic OS functions, task scheduling, prioritization, inter-task communications, interrupts, semaphores and peripheral I/O operations. Practical applications running under an RTOS for embedded computers in event-driven systems are also described.
