Format Error message serial port ColdFire

Posted by Fabian Lanzini on December 3, 2009

I've an error message on a serial port. I'm working with FreeRTOS v6.0.1 and a ColdFire MCF5213.

Everything work fine but when I add an "if" before to send message, instead of sending "1 2 3 4 5", I have "Format Error -- PC = 0X0030BE"

Here's the sending line :

vSerialPutString( xPortRF,trameTEST,5);

and if I had this condition just before :

if (rxchar == (char)_ID)

the COM port will not work.

Thank you for you help.

I have no idea and don't think this is FreeRTOS related, but if add an if statement that will only send _ID to the COM port and nothing else then I would not expect it to work.

You would have to provide a lot more code for somebody to be able to help, like what _ID actually is, but to be honest I don't think this is the most appropriate place for the question.
