Applying multi-tasking to an embedded system based on a PIC microcontroller may be appealing, as it permits full use of the PIC resources by serving more than one task at a time. Multi-tasking, however, can turn applications into memory-hungry monsters that barely fit in your PIC. Task reentrancy is one approach that tackles expanded memory tasks, especially in small to medium PICs.
