I'm working on some custom hardware that uses MQX 4 as the RTOS. The command line interface is through a UART and the code currently polls the MQX tty device for received characters. At speed I'm losing characters, and I really want to use interrupts, but reading the reference manual isn't clarifying matters. Can anyone provide a quick crib on what I need to do?
If you want to use interrupt mode, I would suggest you try to modify BSP_DEFAULT_IO_CHANNEL in user_config.h.
For example, for frdm-k64 board,
#define BSPCFG_ENABLE_TTYA 1
#define BSPCFG_ENABLE_ITTYA 0
#define BSPCFG_ENABLE_TTYA 0
#define BSPCFG_ENABLE_ITTYA 1
#define BSP_DEFAULT_IO_CHANNEL "ittya:"
Then recompile all libraries.
I did a little digging , there is a queue size setup in frdmk64f.h. BSPCFG_SCI0_SIZE, the default is set to 64. If you increase this size to a bigger value, that might solve your issue.
For MQX RTOS, the feature for MQX classic 4.x is set frozen. MQX v5 is a continuation of MQX. Please check below link for more details.
Sorry for the slow response, I was having trouble logging in. I was pointed at an old MQX 3.8 example, and after porting the API calls to MQX 4 I got that working. The basic point was that I need to fopen the port and then fread from it. I am finding it very brittle though, with apparently unrelated code changes altering the success of the fopen call. I may investigate further if time permits as I don't like unpredictable side effects.
