The ST peripheral library Please note that the peripheral library utilised by the demo application is neither re-entrant nor event driven. An example that uses a zero copy technique is provided further down this page. The interrupt service routine measures the number of processor clocks that occur between each interrupt – and in so doing measures the jitter in the interrupt timing. No data was copied. The network interface port layer sits between the IP stack and the embedded Ethernet hardware drivers. See the Embedded Ethernet Examples List page for more information.

Porting FreeRTOS+TCP to a Different Microcontroller
For example, if the web browser computer uses IP address If this proves problematic then place the initialisation library calls inside critical sections. The web server example includes the use of CGI scripting to show task etherndt run time statistics. Its main function is to check that all the standard demo tasks are still operational.
When executing correctly the demo application will behave as follows: The jitter time is measured within the high priority etheenet test as frsertos above. It is preferable to do this in the interrupt service routine itself, which would remove the need to unblock this task for packets that don’t need processing.
The interrupt service routine measures the number of processor clocks that occur between each interrupt – and in so doing measures the jitter in the interrupt timing.
This example assumes SendData is a peripheral driver library function that takes a pointer to the start of the data to be sent and the length of the data to be sent as two separate parameters. If all the demo tasks are executing with their expected behaviour then the check task writes PASS and the maximum measured jitter time in nano seconds to the LCD again via the LCD task. It is very important to refer to these examples as they demonstrate how network buffers are freed after data has been transmitted.

The Ethernet buffer is therefore no longer needed, and must be freed for re-use. The second example demonstrates how to implement a more sophisticated and faster driver. The ARM Cortex-M3 core has the ability to hasten the entry into an interrupt service routine and therefore reduce latency by up to 8 cycles should a high priority interrupt occur while a lower priority interrupt is already being serviced.

If an alignment is required then the size of each buffer must be adjusted to ensure it also ends on an alignment boundary. The served RTOS stats page showing status information on each task in the system. Update the newly allocated network buffer descriptor to point to the Ethernet buffer that contains the received data. This raises the possibility of problems related to re-entrancy or lack of it.
Demonstrates control over the target hardware IO from the served web pages.
A much more efficient solution would be to re-implement the driver to make use of the DMA and be event driven. The maximum measured jitter time is latched in the ulMaxJitter variable, and displayed on the LCD display by the ‘Check’ task as described below.
The best way to ensure this is to base your application on the provided demo application files. It might be possible to do this in the interrupt service routine itself, which would remove the need to unblock this task for packets that etherneet need processing.
While is is a simple robust technique – it is not efficient. An example that uses a zero copy technique is provided further down this page. The following tasks and tests are created in addition to the standard demo tasks: During its initialisation, the demo application accesses IO port configuration from within more than one task.
Throughput will still be slower than that achievable by a more fully featured stack, but will be more than adequate for a lot of deeply embedded microcontroller based applications.
