What is deferred interrupt handling?

In FreeRTOS, a deferred interrupt handler refers to an RTOS task that is unblocked (triggered) by an interrupt service routine (ISR) so the processing necessitated by the interrupt can be performed in the unblocked task, rather than directly in the ISR. The mechanism differs from standard interrupt processing, in which all the processing is performed within the ISR, because the majority of the processing is deferred until after the ISR has exited:
  • Standard ISR Processing

    Standard ISR processing will typically involve recording the reason for the interrupt, clearing the interrupt, then performing any processing necessitated by the interrupt, all within the ISR itself.

  • Deferred Interrupt Processing

    Deferred interrupt processing will typically involve recording the reason for the interrupt and clearing the interrupt within the ISR, but then unblocking an RTOS task so the processing necessitated by the interrupt can be performed by the unblocked task, rather than within the ISR.

    If the task to which interrupt processing is deferred is assigned a high enough priority then the ISR will return directly to the unblocked task (the interrupt will interrupt one task, but then return to a different task), resulting in all the processing necessitated by the interrupt being performed contiguously in time (without a gap), just as if all the processing had been performed in the ISR itself. This can be see in the image below, where all the interrupt processing occurs between times t2 and t4, even though part of the processing is performed by a task.

    deferred handling task has a high priority


    With reference to the image above:

    1. At time t2: A low priority task is pre-empted by an interrupt.
    2. At time t3: The ISR returns directly to a task that was unblocked from within the ISR. The majority of interrupt processing is performed within the unblocked task.
    3. At time t4: The task that was unblocked by the ISR returns to the Blocked state to wait for the next interrupt, allowing the lower priority application task to continue its execution.

When to use deferred interrupt handling

Most embedded engineers will strive to minimise the amount of time spent inside an ISR (to minimise jitter in the system, enable other interrupts of the same or lower priority to execute, maximise interrupt responsiveness, etc.), and the technique of deferring interrupt processing to a task provides a convenient method of achieving this. However, the mechanics of first unblocking, and then switching to, an RTOS task itself takes a finite amount of time, so typically an application will only benefit from deferring interrupt processing if the processing:

  • Needs to perform lengthy operations, or
  • Would benefit from using the full RTOS API, rather than just the ISR safe API, or
  • Needs to perform an action that is not deterministic, within reasonable bounds.

Techniques for deferring interrupt processing to a task

Methods of deferring interrupts to tasks fall into two categories:
  1. Centralised Deferred Interrupt Handling

    Centralised deferred interrupt handling is so called because each interrupt that uses this method executes in the context of the same RTOS daemon task. The RTOS daemon task is created by FreeRTOS, and is also known as the timer service task.

    To defer interrupt processing to the RTOS daemon task pass a pointer to the interrupt processing function as the xFunctionToPend parameter in a call to xTimerPendFunctionCallFromISR() API function. See the xTimerPendFunctionCallFromISR() documentation page for a worked example.

    Advantages of centralised deferred interrupt handling include minimal resource usage, as each deferred interrupt handler uses the same task.

    Disadvantages of centralised deferred interrupt handling include:

    • All the deferred interrupt handler functions execute in the context of the same RTOS daemon task, and therefore execute with the same RTOS task priority.
    • xTimerPendFunctionCallFromISR() sends pointers to the deferred interrupt handling functions to the RTOS daemon task over the timer command queue. Therefore the RTOS daemon task processes the functions in the order in which they are received on the queue, not necessarily in interrupt priority order.
    • Writing to, and then subsequently reading from, the timer command queue adds an additional latency.
  2. Application Controlled Deferred Interrupt Handling

    Application controlled deferred interrupt handling is so called because each interrupt that uses this method executes in the context of a task created by the application writer. See the Using an RTOS Task Notification as a Light Weight Counting Semaphore documentation page for a worked example.

    Advantages of application controlled deferred interrupt handling include:

    • Reduced latency (function pointers are not passed through a queue).
    • The ability to assign a different priority to each deferred interrupt handling RTOS task - allowing the relative priority of deferred interrupt task to match the relative priority of their respective interrupts.

    Disadvantages of application controlled deferred interrupt handling includes the greater consumption of resources as typically more tasks are required.

When sleeping, an RTOS task will specify a time after which it requires 'waking'. When blocking, an RTOS task can specify a maximum time it wishes to wait.

The FreeRTOS real time kernel measures time using a tick count variable. A timer interrupt (the RTOS tick interrupt) increments the tick count with strict temporal accuracy - allowing the real time kernel to measure time to a resolution of the chosen timer interrupt frequency.

Each time the tick count is incremented the real time kernel must check to see if it is now time to unblock or wake a task. It is possible that a task woken or unblocked during the tick ISR will have a priority higher than that of the interrupted task. If this is the case the tick ISR should return to the newly woken/unblocked task - effectively interrupting one task but returning to another. This is depicted below:

TickISR.gif

Referring to the numbers in the diagram above:

  • At (1) the RTOS idle task is executing.
  • At (2) the RTOS tick occurs, and control transfers to the tick ISR (3).
  • The RTOS tick ISR makes vControlTask ready to run, and as vControlTask has a higher priority than the RTOS idle task, switches the context to that of vControlTask.
  • As the execution context is now that of vControlTask, exiting the ISR (4) returns control to vControlTask, which starts executing (5).

A context switch occurring in this way is said to be Preemptive, as the interrupted task is preempted without suspending itself voluntarily.

The AVR port of FreeRTOS uses a compare match event on timer 1 to generate the RTOS tick. The following pages describe how the RTOS tick ISR is implemented using the WinAVR development tools.

In this tutorial, you will learn how interrupt management works with FreeRTOS. In other words, you will learn to manage interrupts with the FreeRTOS kernel. Real-time operating systems, each application consists of several tasks. These tasks can be periodic, aperiodic, and sporadic in nature. But along these some tasks execute only whenever an interrupt occurs. For example, we have an aperiodic task which executes only whenever a user presses a push-button connected with a digital I/O pin of an Arduino. On top of that, we have attached an interrupt to this digital I/O pin. That means whenever a user presses a push-button, Arduino starts to execute an interrupt service routine. 

In this tutorial, we will see an example to read and write value to queues using interrupt service routine.

Interrupt Management Introduction

While using RTOS, it is very critical to handle interrupt service routines. Because the misuse of interrupts can lead to time constraint issues such as other periodic tasks failing to meet their deadlines. 

Note: Interrupts have higher priorities than other Tasks. Therefore, it Interrupts should not wait for a mutex, semaphore, and other resources and should be executed as soon as it occurs. Otherwise, it may cause issues. Defer processing of interrupts through other tasks is a possible countermeasure to minimize the processing time of ISR as soon as possible. In short, the code and execution time of interrupt service routine should be as small as possible.

Prerequisites

If you don’t know how to use queues with FreeRTOS queue management API, you can read these tutorials: 

Using Interrupt to Read and Write to Queues

FreeRTOS interrupt provides an interrupt safe version of queue API to read and write data from queues using ISR. These are the two API functions: 

  • xQueueSendToBackFromISR() : It is used to write data to the queue from an interrupt service routine. It works similar to xQueueSendToBack() API with the same function of input argument and a return value. For information about this API, check this link.
  • xQueueReceiveFromISR(): It is used to read data from the queue from an interrupt service routine. It works similar to xQueueReceive() API with the same function of input argument and a return value. For information about this API, check this link.

FreeRTOS Interrupt Management Example with Arduino

In this example, we will create a task to print a string on an Arduino Serial monitor. First, it will read a string from a string type queue.  An interrupt service routine writes the string to the queue and the print function reads value from that queue and prints it on the serial monitor of Arduino. To generate interrupt, we will use a timer1 of Arduino. Timer1 of Arduino will generate an interrupt on every overflow. That means, the interrupt service routine will execute on overflow of timer1. 

FreeRTOS Interrupt Management Example writing read data from queue with ISR

If you don’t know about Arduino Interrupts, you can read this tutorial: 

Arduino Interrupts tutorial 

Inside the ISR, we define 5 strings and depending on the string number passed to the xQueueSendToBackFromISR() function , this API writes corresponding string to the queue string and string print task display message on Arduino serial monitor accordingly. 

Arduino Code

Copy this example code and upload it your Arduino board. First lets check the output of this code and after that we will explain the working of code.

Serial Monitor Output

As you can see from the output of the Arduino serial monitor, it prints “Hello” on every interrupt due to the overflow of timer1. The reason it is displaying “Hello”. Because we wrote string one to the queue.

Interrupt handling in FreeRTOS

Posted by barbart1 on June 6, 2010

Hi, I’m wondering if there is a special mechanism for handling
interrupts in FreeRTOS? I wanted to write a simple interrupt
routine that would toggle a led when I press a button. But sadly,
when I add the interrupt initialization code, the task won’t start.
Here’s the code: As you can see it’s very simple. I’m using SAM7-P64 dev board. Am i doing it wrong?

It seems like the line : is the problem. If I comment it, the task is running and everything is ok. How should I handle the interrupt then?

Try enabling your interrupt only after the freeRTOS scheduler gets started.
In your FreeRTOS port, isn’t there a sample serial driver using interrupts which can help as a reference?

Hi, I bought the manual and changed my code, but interrupts still don’t work. Everything seems to be ok. Is the ISR written correctly? Here’s the task that takes the semaphore:

Not familiar with this processor, but the line
AT91C_BASE_AIC->AIC_EOICR = 0xFA;
would be my guess at the error. I presume this is an end of interrupt control, and probably doesn’t want to be conditioned on xHigherPriorityTaskWoken. I would suggest placing it before the if statement.

Posted by barbart1 on June 8, 2010

I got it working. It seems that an interrupt handler that gives a token to a semaphore needs to be called from a wrapper that copies the context. I got it working with: Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but that is the only way I managed to get it done. Without the wrapper the processor “hangs” itself. And of course both the wrapper and the handler must be compiled in ARM mode. Or is there a way without using a wrapper?

If your interrupt is wanting to cause a context switch, or wanting to call a FreeRTOS API function, then the wrapper is required – as per the documentation and examples. Regards.

FreeRTOS: two tasks with interrupt

It is not clear what you are asking or what you want to use the semaphore for. Protecting data access by both the interrupt and the first task? Or maybe signaling the first task? From what I can make out it sounds like you want to have a lower priority task running continuously, then when an interrupt occurs have the interrupt handler unblock a higher priority task that will then preempt the lower priority task and execute. Then when it finishes and blocks again the scheduler will naturally continue running the lower priority task. I'm confused by your statement that if you continue executing from where it was interrupted you will get trash though - interrupts always return to where they interrupted.

The most efficient way of unblocking a task from an interrupt would be a direct-to-task notification. I would also recommend reading some of the generic FreeRTOS documentation and books available on the FreeRTOS.org site.
