Do you people use the uC/OS-II RTOS from Micrium? If so, what do you
think about it e.g. is it worthwhile and what is the resource usage on
the Motorola 56f8xx DSP?
I have experimented with uCOS version 2.51 using the 807 eval kit and the|
RTOS works very well. The testing only used semaphores and the task time
delay features (no msg boxes, queues, mutex etc.). The processor usage
overhead is minimal, about 1 - 2%. ROM usage is a little less than 1K and
RAM is about 580 bytes. It is pretty straight forward to use and the
Motorola port works fine. If you need a RTOS it would be a good choice.
The best starting place is Jean Labrosse's book on uCOS-II. You can get it
online. It comes with uCOS-II version 2.04, so you will need to upgrade to
2.51 (the port supports 2.51). The book gives you a good insight on how to
use the RTOS. You can get more information by going to www.usos-ii.com.

Did you see my last e-mail on the RTOS? If so, a simple yes or no will
do, thank you.
