Turning off the tick in the RTOS cuts MCU power consumption September 01, 2014 Turning off the tick in the RTOS cuts MCU power consumption Segger has added tickless low power support to its embOS real time operating system. The tickless low power feature reduces the power consumption for battery powered devices; it stops the periodic system tick interrupt during idle periods. Instead of having a timer interrupt for each system tick the ...
