Getting Started with Micrium OS

A popular thing in embedded applications is an RTOS. They are quite popular because they make it easier to develop complicated programs. They handle a lot of the background scheduling and general running of a program. They are also a daunting thing to get started with. Well, I am here to help. I’ve written a nice getting started with Micrium OS project description. With Micrium OS being built into Silicon Labs SDK, it is much easier to get an RTOS project started. My project is a great way to learn how to create your own RTOS program. You can read more about it here.

The RTOS program is a simple one. It allows you to turn an LED on and off with a button push.  It is more meant to show you how to build the RTOS and some of the necessary basics in an RTOS program. Hopefully it will help you to start making your own programs.
