8. System of Tasks Best Practices
Using a system of HLS tasks in your component enables a variety of design structures that you can implement.
Common uses for a system of tasks include the following cases:
After you implement a system of tasks, you might need to balance the capacity of your task functions to improve performance. For details, review the advice in Balancing Capacity in a System of Tasks.
