Build Your Own Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) Games for Embedded Systems

In this virtual workshop from Texas Instruments, we have a very special treat: Handheld game development!

Who has not wanted to make their own version of a portable gaming device from scratch and create their own games? We will show you how you can get started using TI-RTOS and the TI LaunchPad™ ecosystem. Get a hands-on deep dive into the LaunchPad development  kit and the SimpleLink™ family of products and learn where to find additional resources to progress your knowledge of RTOS. Having an embedded system allows electronics designers to customize games using a variety of user inputs, sensors and output to the user using displays and sounds. As things get more complicated in the system, using an RTOS can help the designer manage the various tasks that are sharing the hardware resources. This is true in gaming applications but also many other complex embedded systems like robotics and smart devices.

If you would like to purchase the kits for this on-demand workshop, they can be purchased at, Mouser or Digi-Key.*

*If you purchase the components through TI, university students and faculty may use coupon code, “Innovation” for free shipping. If you order through Mouser or Digi-Key, search for the items using the same product numbers listed above.
