How to Prioritize RTOS Tasks DVD

There is an optimal method of assigning fixed priorities to a set of RTOS tasks and interrupt service routines. When a real-time operating system is used without assigning task priorities in this way, only one task (or, more commonly, ISR) may be guaranteed to meet all of its deadlines. This course explains how and why to use this optimal method to allow a critical set of tasks and ISRs to meet all of their deadlines even during transient overload periods.

Join embedded software expert Michael Barr in this lively and important discussion of the best practices for priority assignment to meet a set of hard and soft real-time deadlines. Everything that's taught here can be immediately applied with any priority-based preemptive RTOS, including real-time Linux.
