This page presents an IAR web server and USB demo that is pre-configured to run on the evaluation board that comes in the KSK-LPCPL Kickstart Kit. “Using the FreeRTOS Real Time Kernel – a Practical Guide LPC17xx Edition” is a step by step hands on guide to using FreeRTOS on Cortex M3. We are using LPC microcontroller and LPCXpresso IDE for our have downloaded sample project from FREERTOS website and we are.

Thread aware file system Hint: See the Embedded Ethernet Examples List page for more information. Interrupt priorities must be set in accordance with the instructions on the Customisation page for correct operation. If this project fails to build then it is likely the version of IAR Embedded Workbench being used is too old.
If this is the case, then it is also likely that the project file has been silently corrupted and will need to be restored to its original state before it can be built even with an updated IAR version. It therefore contains many more files than used by this demo.
See the Source Code Organization section for a description of the downloaded files and information on creating a new project. The Demo Application web server configuration Connect the evaluation board to a computer running a web browser either directly using a point to point crossover cable, or via a Ethernet switch using a standard Ethernet cable.
The MAC address and net mask are configured within the same header file. The IP addresses used by the web browser computer and the evaluation board must be compatible. This can be ensured by making the first three octets of both IP addresses identical.

For example, if the web browser computer uses IP address Kickstart versions of Embedded Workbench can only be used with compiled binary images of 32K bytes and under – it is necessary to set the compiler optimisation to ‘medium’ prior to compilation if the Kickstart edition is being used.
Select ffeertos and Debug” from the “Project” menu – the demo application should build with no errors or warnings before being programmed into the LPC Flash memory. The debugger will break at the start of main. The tasks consist primarily of the standard demo tasks see the demo application section for details of the individual tasks. The following tasks and tests are created in addition to the standard demo tasks: Lpc178 function – called from the tick hook This only executes every five seconds.
Its main function is to check that all the standard demo tasks are still operational. The USB task simply echoes received characters with an offset which by default is one. Therefore if ‘A’ is received ‘B’ will be echoed back. If ‘x’ is received ‘y’ will be echoed back, etc. When executing correctly the demo application will behave as follows: To use the USB port assuming a Windows host computer: Connect the LPC to your host computer using the USB device port of the evaluation board ensuring the jumpers are set correctly for device operation, see the underside of the freertso for jumper settings.
The host computer should recognise the new USB connection and prompt for the location of a suitable. Select the option to manually select the. The Windows Device Manager can be used to ascertain the actual number assigned.
Open up a dumb terminal such as Hyperterminal and select the enumerated COM port number. Other parameters such as baud rate and flow control settings are not required and can be left at their default values.
Type ‘A’ into the terminal window, if everything is lp1768 correctly you should see ‘B’ echoed back.
Note that a queue is used to pass each individual character between the USB interrupt service routine and the USB task. This is a convenient method for a slow echo server, but very inefficient if large amounts of data are to be frertos.
The target hardware will serve the web pages described below to a standard frewrtos browser. To connect to the target: Open a web browser on the connected computer. Served Web Pages The top of each served page includes a menu containing a link to every other page.
The served RTOS stats page showing status lp1c768 on each task in the system. The served run time stats page showing the processor utilisation of each task. The check box permits the state of the user LED 2 to be both set and queried.
Changes are sent to the target hardware by clicking the “Update IO” button. The constants defined in this file can be edited to suit your application. The supplied value of Hz is useful for testing the RTOS kernel functionality but is rfeertos than most applications require.
Lowering this value will improve efficiency. The lowest priority on a ARM Cortex-M3 core is in fact – however different ARM Cortex-M3 vendors implement a different number of priority bits lpd1768 supply library functions that expect priorities to be specified in different ways.

Use the supplied examples as a reference. Note that vPortEndScheduler has lpc7168 been implemented. Interrupt service routines In the demo application the vector table remains in flash.
Unlike most ports, interrupt service routines that cause a context lpc178 have no special requirements and can be written as per the compiler documentation.
This should be used as a reference example. Compiler options As with all the ports, it is essential that the correct compiler options are used. The best way to ensure this is to base your application on the provided demo application files.
