What you’ll learn

Mastering RTOS: Hands on FreeRTOS and STM32Fx with Debugging Course

  • Understanding various RTOS concepts with FreeRTOS Programming and Debugging
  • Learn Complete Step by step method to run FreeRTOS on STM32 MCUs using OpenSTM32 System Workbench
  • Using STM32 Standard Peripheral Driver APIs to configure peripherals
  • FreeRTOS Task Creation, Deletion, Scheduling using with code examples
  • Important scheduling policies of FreeRTOS Scheduler
  • FreeRTOS Stack and Heap Management
  • Right ways of Synchronizing between tasks using Semaphores.
  • Right ways of Synchronizing between a task and an interrupt using semaphores
  • Synchronization between multiple events and a task
  • FreeRTOS Queue management like creation, sending, receiving, blocking, etc
  • Implementing mutual exclusion between Tasks using Mutex services and semaphores
  • Understanding Context Switching with in detail code explanation
  • Understanding Architecture specific codes like SVC_handler, PendSV_handler, SysTick Handler line by line
  • You will learn about kernel Tick timer, its importance, the kernel tick frequency, and its configuration details.
  • Understanding complete ARM Cortex M and FreeRTOS Priority model and its configuration-related pieces of information
  • FreeRTOS Debugging using SEGGER SystemView Software
  • Lots of articles which explains line by line the ARM Cortex M related FreeRTOS architecture-specific codes
  • Low power instructions use a case in FreeRTOS scenario
  • Lots of coding exercises
  • Debugging with SEGGER software toolkit by taking snapshot and continuous mode recording


  • Basic knowledge of C and Microcontroller could be added advantage but not mandatory


“The Biggest objective of this course is to demystifying RTOS practically using FreeRTOS and STM32 MCUs”A STEP-by-STEP guide to a port/run FreeRTOS using development setup which includes,

1) Eclipse + STM32F4xx + FreeRTOS + SEGGER SystemView

2) FreeRTOS+Simulator (For windows)

Demystifying the complete Architecture (ARM Cortex M) related code of FreeRTOS which will massively help you to put this kernel on any target hardware of your choice.

Development board used in this course:

If you already have an STM32 Based development board, then please continue using the same. The course uses STM32F446RE MCU based NUCLEO-F446RE board.

Software used in this course:

1) OpenSTM32 System Workbench which can run on all OS platforms(WIN/OSX/LINUX) (free)

2) SEGGER Systemview software free edition

FreeRTOS+ Simulator

Don’t have any hardware? You can still try some of the Source code of this course using the FreeRTOS simulator for windows.

In this course, I have documented all the steps required to run freeRTOS in Simulator mode, so you can set up on your PC in no time. All you need is just PC and Eclipse software. That’s it!

Operating system information


Embedded Debugging and Quizzes

Debugging embedded code is really interesting and learning various debugging techniques and features are very much essential to have a good grip on embedded debugging.

Also, the course consists of various interview questions that will test your knowledge gained !.
