Overview:
Are you trying to develop with a real-time kernel, or just interested in understanding the workings of a real-time kernel? If so, here’s a class that puts a spotlight on just how a real-time kernel works. The class uses Micrium’s recently released uC/OS-III as a reference, and is presented by the kernel’s author, Micrium’s Founder, Jean Labrosse, in conjunction with one of the company’s software experts, Matt Gordon. The class describes real-time kernels from generic terms to specifics involved with an ARM Cortex-M3 architecture.

Attend this webinar to learn:
Micrium’s uC/OS-III is the successor to the company’s popular uC/OS-II real-time kernel. Features of uC/OS-III that will be touched on in class include:

  • Preemptive multitasking with round-robin scheduling of tasks at the same priority
  • Adapting a real-time kernel to ARM’s Cortex-M3 architecture
  • Using an unlimited number of tasks and other kernel objects
  • Semaphores
  • Mutual exclusion semaphores with full priority inheritance
  • Event flags
  • Message queues
  • Timers
  • Fixed-size memory block management
  • and more

At the end of Labrosse’s class, you’ll have an opportunity to get your questions answered live, directly by the man who authored the operating system.

Two options are available for this webinar:
The student can simply follow along with Labrosse, with the ability to come back to the webinar later if some points need to be made over again.


Secondly, students can have a hands-on experience leading to a high level of proficiency by purchasing uC/OS-III The Real Time Kernel book (authored by Labrosse), a companion evaluation board (uC/Eval-STM32F107), and a set of programming tools (IAR Systems Embedded Workbench for ARM).

Price options:
Webinar Registration Only = $39
Webinar Registration, Book, Evaluation Board, and Tool Set = $109

Book: uC/OS-III The Real Time Kernel
Evaluation Board: uC/Eval-STM32F107
Set of Programming Tools: IAR Systems Embedded Workbench for ARM
