1-day Seminar and Workshop

FREE morning session with optional afternoon hands-on workshop

INDES-IDS in association with EBV Elektronik present:

FreeRTOS and Percepio
- with Richard Barry, founder of the FreeRTOS project

Date:  May 2-4, 2016

Place: Eindhoven, Amersfoort, Leuven

Time:  09:30 - 16:00

The hands-on classes are almost fully booked


Richard Barry, founder of the FreeRTOS project will describe the fundamentals of multi-tasking in small embedded systems, including when and how an RTOS can benefit your software design.

Niclas Lindblom will then present the most advanced debugging tool for RTOS based systems, Percepio Tracealyzer. Niclas will then lead two hands-on sessions in which a FreeRTOS-based system is debugged on an ST Nucleo board using Tracealyzer and the concepts explained by Richard Barry.

What you will learn:

  • Why use an RTOS, and why use FreeRTOS in particular
  • How to create a FreeRTOS application
  • The fundamentals of multi-tasking and inter-task communication
  • How to maximize the benefit of using an RTOS in your application
  • Introduction to visualization with Percepio Tracealyzer
  • The advantages of debugging a system using Tracealyzer
  • Streaming trace versus snapshot recorder – advantages and when to use
  • Real-use cases, success stories

The afternoon hands-on sessions will cover:

  • How to configure FreeRTOS to use snapshot, and streaming trace
  • Identifying and correcting priority inversions
  • How to spot bottlenecks and deadlocks
  • Performance and scheduling optimization

Who should attend?

  • Engineering managers (recommended for morning session)
  • Software engineers
  • Software quality
  • Test engineers

Meet the presenters

After the presentations and during the breaks, the presenters will be available to discuss projects in details and provide demonstrations of their technology.
