System Tasks

The RTOS itself creates a set of tasks used to support the IPC@CHIP® services. Your application programs will be executing concurrently with these built-in tasks. The fact that these RTOS tasks exists is particularly relevant when you choose priorities for your own application program's tasks.

Each task in the IPC@CHIP® system must have a unique four letter task name. Consequently the user must take care to avoid the names used by these system tasks when naming tasks.

System Task List

The priorities stated here are the default priorities. They can be changed with CHIP.INI entries. The values are in decimal, where 0 is highest priority. Some tasks may not be present in your system due to your system configuration specified in the CHIP.INI configuration file. For these tasks the relevant configuration file parameter is stated here with a hyper-link.
