  • What's New in November 2021 FreeRTOS Releases
    We're excited to share these latest updates: The FreeRTOS download now contains an example of code that demonstrates a method of minimizing the time that an application spends in privileged mode in FreeRTOS ports on microcontrollers (MCUs) with Memory Protection Unit (MPU) support. These FreeRTOS ports with MPU support enable MCU applications to be more […]

  • FreeRTOS LTS libraries are now included in our partner toolchains
    In December 2020 we introduced the first FreeRTOS Long Term Support (LTS) version. With the LTS version, developers can rely on a FreeRTOS version that provides feature stability, and security patches and critical bug fixes for two years from the release date. Response from our partners was strong, and they are integrating the LTS version […]

  • FreeRTOS adds reference implementations for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP)
    Earlier this year, we introduced the FreeRTOS Symmetric Multiprocessing GitHub branch for multi-core microcontrollers. We are excited to share that we now have reference implementations on two platforms - xcore from XMOS and Raspberry Pi Pico. With FreeRTOS SMP, developers can use the SMP capabilities of multi-core microcontrollers to design applications. Multi-core microcontrollers, in which […]

  • Introducing the FreeRTOS Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) Github Branch
    With processes shrinking and approaching the limits of physics, in the last decade we have all got used to multicore chips of increasing complexity and performance extending Moore’s law in our desktops and laptops. In embedded control, where cost, size and robustness demands often take precedence over performance, it seems the time for multicore has […]
