February 24 - Day 2: Baremetal Scheduling Techniques

It isn't uncommon for developers to default to a real-time operating system (RTOS) when developing an embedded system. As it turns out there are a number of scheduling techniques that can be used to achieve real-time performance before an RTOS is even necessary. This session will explore baremetal...
