The so-called tact or cycle of periodical calculations, ie the life rhythm is used in the real-time systems. Some procedure is calculated in each cycle that should not take more time than the cycle. As a consequence, if the cycle procedure stops for waiting, the life of the real-time system stops too. Hence, the using of traditional sleep task functions into such procedures is unacceptable!
