RTOS component using Component Design Environment in KDS

Contributor I

Has anyone had success creating a RTOS component using Component Design Environment in Kinetis Design Studio?  I purchased a license for the CDE but am unable to get KDS to recognize the license. My goal is to create a SafeRTOS component.

Hi Jacob,

I have created one for FreeRTOS, but I used the 'Bean Wizard' in CodeWarrior Professional Edition and not the CDE in KDS, as I wanted this (and other) components to work with CodeWarrior and Eclipse based IDE's.

That component is open source and you can get everything from GitHub and SourceForge (see https://mcuoneclipse.com/2014/10/21/mcuoneclipse-releases-on-sourceforge/). So you might use that as a starting point or inspiration.

If you want to use CDE (the Eclipse based version of Bean Wizard) to create an RTOS, there is a special dedicated license for that which you would allow to sell your component based on the license agreement. If you don't want to commercially sell that component, you would not need that license. Especially if you are OK to use a text editor to edit a few special files.

Back in time I wrote https://mcuoneclipse.com/2012/06/30/the-making-of-rtos-processor-expert-components/  and that component has evolved over time. If there is interest, I should be able to point you to the needed extra files and content with FreeRTOS as example.

I hope this helps,
