FreeRTOS is a popular real-time operating system for embedded devices, being ported to 31 microcontrollers. It is distributed under the GPL with an optional exception.
- Designed to be small, simple and easy to use.
- Free RTOS kernel - preemptive, cooperative and hybrid configuration options.
- Includes a tickless mode for low power applications.
- Official support for 34 embedded system architectures.
- Supports the ARM Cortex-M3 MPU.
- Very portable, predominantly written in C.
- Supports both real time tasks and co-routines.
- Mutexes with priority inheritance.
- Powerful execution trace functionality.
- Stack overflow detection options.
- No software restriction on the number of real time tasks that can be created.
- No software restriction on the number of task priorities that can be used.
- No restrictions imposed on task priority assignment - more than one real time task can be assigned the same priority.
