Operating System (OS)

winIDEA provides full kernel awareness for most popular real-time operating systems. A dedicated window displays information, such as list of tasks with parameters display, list of semaphores with status, list of timers with status, memory pools, message queues, mutexes, task queues, etc.


To configure Operating System select Debug / Configure Session / Applications / Add or Edit button / OS page.




Type - Specify the type of the Operating System.

None - Select in case of no OS and click Next.

Select an OS whose code this application contains (e.g. AUTOSAR) and click Configure.


Note: Compact RTOS applications typically link the OS code with the application code and should specify the OS here.
