PSoC 4 MCU

Anonymous

Hello everyone, and thanks again for your previous support, nowadays I will start working with RTOS, in this case I will use FreeRTOS,  application using PSoC 4 BLE module, so for that reason I  have come up with several questions such as the following:

   
        
  1. What will change when the FreeRTOS gets loaded inside the PSoC 4 BLE?
     
  2.     
  3. Would be a difference in the way that the PSoC 4 BLE is programmed using PSoC creator?, in other words, would I still be able to program it using PSoC creator?
     
  4.     
  5. How can I upload the FreeRTOS to the target device (PSoC 4 BLE)?
     
  6.     
  7. Once the FreeRTOS is uploaded; how can I program the PSoC 4 BLE in other to include the "Priority scheduling (i.e., event driven)" and "Time sharing (i.e., round robin)"?
  8.    
   

Thanks very much indeed for all your future help

Hi,

   

I think all your questions are more FreeRTOS related than PSoC, adding FreeRTOS files to a PSoC Creator project is straight forward, just follow the FreeRTOS getting started tutorials.

   

1. You will be running a RTOS instead bare metal.

   

2. No difference, and yes, you will be able to flash the program using Creator.

   

3. See e.pratt answer (FreeRTOS quick start guide)

   

4. FreeRTOS specific, non Creator.

   

 

   

Check this project https://cypress.hackster.io/42177/free-rtos-with-psoc-4-ble-82a61e it can help you, there's a PSoC 4BLE + FreeRTOS project attache at the end of the post.

Check out this thread: http://www.cypress.com/forum/psoc-4-architecture/what-rtos-can-be-used-psoc-4

   

​I'm not sure I understand your questions very well, but:

   

1. When you load code into the PSoC, it will run. Since FreeRTOS is probably different than other code, it will run differently?

   

2. Since PSoC creator is an IDE, you can write, build, compile, and program the BLE chip all in the PSoC Creator. FREERTOS is probably just a source code .zip, or contains makefiles. I imagine it would be handled differently, but the C code itself should be easily portable.

   

3. You can use the PSoC Creator, or the PSoC Programmer software to program the device using a cypress-compatible programmer device. (Takes .hex files as input)

   

4. The PSoC is a single hex based image chip, and thus you would build and program all libraries and code that you want to be on the chip into the .hex file that you program into the chip the first time. (This isn't a linux OS)

Thank you very much for your help, and you are totally right, I have already started the Getting Started Guide, and some doubts that I had have been cleared. In a moment I will upload in this same forum some of my conclusions and advances.
