Drift through k_sleep or k_msleep #api


Nikolaus Huber
 

Hi all, 

I was recently wondering about the correct usage of k_sleep or k_msleep for implementing periodic tasks. In FreeRTOS for example there is a function vTaskDelayUntil which takes a timestamp and a number of ticks to delay. By taking the timestamp at the beginning of the execution of a task we can then make sure that its release time does not slowly drift. So far I have not seen anything similar in Zephyr. Am I missing something, or do I have to somehow create a similar mechanism on my own by measuring the uptime at the release of a periodic task and then again just before using any sleep function to calculate the exact sleep time I want?

Thank you very much in advance,
Nick
