For designers, an RTOS is seductive: just write linear code blocks and compile with the RTOS. Unfortunately, the cost doesn’t appear until the design, when code space and timing issues appear. A state machine-based approach is smaller, faster, and cheaper because only needed features are included, context management is eliminated, and the only cost is the time to do the software design up front. This session walks attendees through a basic multitasking state-machine design.
