Galaxia Library

Galaxy Library with RTOS elements for Energia MT

Why the Galaxia name? With LaunchPad, BoosterPack and Energia, let's stay in space and explore new galaxies!

Content

The Galaxia Library encapsulates RTOS elements as objects for an easier use.

It runs on the boards supported by Energia MT: LaunchPad MSP432, LaunchPad CC3200 and RedBearLab CC3200-based boards.

The library comes with an umbrella header Galaxia.h for an easier #include.

#include "Galaxia.h"

Because SWI has been removed from RTOS for Energia MT 0101E0017, SWI And SWITrigger are no longer operational.

Make sure to select the variant of the board with EMT.

Elements

  • Threads elements

    • HWI
    • SWI (1)
    • SWI with trigger (SWItrigger) (1)
    • Task
  • Synchronisation elements

    • Event
    • Semaphore
    • Mailbox (2)
    • Timer (3)
    • Clock

Notes

  1. SWI has been removed from RTOS for Energia MT 0101E0017
  2. Mailbox supersedes Queue
  3. Clock recommended over Timer

Warning

The Galaxia library relies on the Energia MT implementation of RTOS. As so, some RTOS elements may work with one distribution of Energia but not antoher. Similarly, some RTOS elements may have been removed from the last distribution of Energia MT.
