14.1 Can Semaphores be used for synchronizing tasks with events?

Yes. They are ideal for synchronizing Background tasks with events, especially in the Novos PPS environment. In the Novos FCFS and Novos RRS environments, a task that is pending on an event associated with a semaphore will be released when the event occurs but because there is no preemption, the task may not gain CPU control immediately.
