pxCurrentTCB issue - Cortex M3

Posted by Fran├žois DE LA ROCHE on August 26, 2010

I'm developping on a Stellaris LM3S9B90 (Cortex-M3 core) Eval Board from Texas Instrument, and I'm implementing FreeRTOS on this platform.
I have like 3 tasks running on the board and lately, I got a FaultISR problem. I checked the Cortex-M3 registers to know from where was happening this problem and it happens that the last Program Counter before the fault was pointing on a pxCurrentTCB operation. This is the last error I got :

pxCurrentTCB, pxCurrentTCB:
0x2000CCA0: 2E58 CMP R6, #0x58

But I got problems with a MOV instead of CMP early, always with pxCurrentTCB operation.

Can you advice me about this error ? Is it due to a memory fault (context cannot be restored correctly) ?

Thanks all.

From one line of assembly code I have absolutely no idea what the problem is, or what it could be - and never will do.

Obviously, there was a problem with Task Management...

I solved the problem but I don't know how...

hi cisco

have you get rid of this error permanently?
I have a similar problem, with my code also on a LM3S9B90 custom board.
Sometimes it works, but most of the time I get catapulted straight to FaultISR. Did you use CodeSourcery G++?
In another thread it's mentioned that it might behave a little different than eclipse with openOCD.

If you can provide any more information what helped you to get it running I would be very happy.
