Integrating the Kernel Into Your Project#

The Micrium OS Kernel module is composed of several components, each of which is a set of files that implement specific functions. The kernel itself consists of a core component named "Kernel" and a port component named "Port". To use the Kernel, you must add these files to your project and populate your RTOS Description File .

Using Example Projects#

Micrium offers a set of example applications that demonstrate some of the features of the Micrium OS kernel, and allow you to start developing your application. We recommend that you start from one of these examples.

Configuring the Kernel#

Micrium OS Kernel can be configured to optimize memory usage and overhead. The following pages explain how the kernel and the whole Micrium OS can be configured at compile-time:

The Kernel Run-Time Application Specific Configurations page and its subpages show how to fine-tune the application-specific features of the Kernel at run-time.
