  • [SOLVED] Embedded Studio for AmazonFreeRtos : task awareness

    Hi guys,

    I am currently evaluating Embedded Studio for development with Amazon FreeRTOS.

    According to the link below, Embedded Studio comes with a RTOS plugin for Amazon FreeRTOS making it fully task aware.

    https://www.segger.com/news/segger-embedded-studio-and-j-link-support-amazon-freertos/



    Which plugin are they referring to and how can I use it in Embedded Studio ?


    Thank you,
    Yves
  • Hello Yves,

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    How to enable the plugin is described on the following wiki article: wiki.segger.com/How_to_enable_RTOS_thread_awarness

    If you are looking for an alternative RTOS from the J-Link ecosystem that also supports Amazon AWS we can recommend embOS: segger.com/products/rtos/embos/

    We are currently working on example projects for embOS so our customers can use it out-of-thex-box. So should you be looking for a RTOS that is optimized for embedded systems, J-Link and supports Amazon AWS that embOS the way to go.

    Should you be interested feel free to get in touch with our sales department.

    Best regards,
    Nino

  • Thanks Nino for your quick answer,

    Which plugin am i supposed to use with Amazon FreeRTOS ?

    I've tried each of them and I have an error when debugging.

    Using embOS plugin, I have the error : "Thread Script exception : can't convert undefined to an object"

    Using threadCM3 or thread CMF4, i have : "Error reading from memory"

    Thanks
    Yves
  • Hello Yves,

    The embOS plugin will only work with embOS.
    Amazon FreeRTOS is a version of FreeRTOS so use the FreeRTOS thread awarness scripts.
    Keep in mind that these are only samples for Cortex-M3 and Cortes-M4F cores that are provided without further support.
    Should you need a script for another core type you can use these samples as reference and create your own.

    What target device are you trying to program?

    Best regards,
    Nino
