There are many great real-time operating systems (RTOS) for microcontrollers. One popular commercial system, μC/OS II/III from Micrium, has recently been made available for the maker, hobbyist, and start-up market at no cost. We will look at this new program and take an extensive hands-on look at μC/OS III using the ARM mbed-enabled Kinetis K64 chip from NXP.
