Getting Started with FreeRTOS

To get started quickly, you can choose hardware that supports FreeRTOS features and capabilities from the Amazon Partner Device Catalog. If you want to get started without hardware, you can use the FreeRTOS Windows simulator.

Next, you can use the FreeRTOS console to get a custom download of the operating system by choosing the libraries relevant to your use case. The console will guide you through this process so you can begin developing immediately.

You can also find FreeRTOS on GitHub, SourceForge, or It will contain all libraries and hardware-specific porting layers, which you can selectively include or remove after download based on your use case. You can also access the stand-alone FreeRTOS kernel through any of these channels. For Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), you can download source code from the FreeRTOS GitHub repository and the companion Android and iOS SDKs from GitHub.

FreeRTOS is open source, so you are free to extend, modify, or delete any of the source code libraries.
