This presentation will explore advanced embedded development using modular hardware and software tools - enabling rapid evaluation and prototyping. The Freescale Tower System platform will be used to show how you can use modular development for your embedded designs, and you’ll learn about the benefits of using Freescale MQX RTOS with CodeWarrior MCU 10. This presentation will also introduce basic RTOS concepts, and a hands-on example project will guide you through scheduling and tasks.

Presented By: Megan Hansen
