Thread safety

With default configuration, LwMEM library is not thread safe. This means whenever it is used with operating system, user must resolve it with care.

Library has locking mechanism support for thread safety, which needs to be enabled.

Tip

To enable thread-safety support, parameter LWMEM_CFG_OS must be set to 1. Please check LwMEM Configuration for more information about other options.

After thread-safety features has been enabled, it is necessary to implement 4 low-level system functions.

Tip

System function template example is available in lwmem/src/system/ folder.

Example code for CMSIS-OS V2

Note

Check System functions section for function description
