Using heap_5.c

Posted by miraekim on July 18, 2017

I ported FreeRTOS in TI MSP430FR5969 board. The memory composition of this board are both SRAM and FRAM. The adress space is like below.

SRAM origin : 0x1C00, length = 0x0800 FRAM : origin = 0x4400, length = 0xBB80 FRAM2 : origin = 0x10000,length = 0x4000

I would like to allocate heap to these memory location. For example, When I create 4 tasks, I would like to allocate 2 of task stack to SRAM and the others to FRAM. So my questions are,

  1. Is it right that I can use heap_5.c to allocate heap to non-contagious memory region?

  2. when I initialize heap regions to use heap_5.c, is it also right that I can write the code like below?

    const HeapRegiont xHeapRegions[] = { { ( uint8t * ) 0x1C00, 0x0400 }, // to use SRAM { ( uint8_t * ) 0x4400, 0x0400 }, // to use FRAM { NULL, 0 } /* Terminates the array. */ };

    /* Pass the array into vPortDefineHeapRegions(). */ vPortDefineHeapRegions( xHeapRegions );

  3. Should configAPPLICATIONALLOCATEDHEAP to be defined 1 to use heap_5.c ?

  4. If I use heap_5.c, Do I still need the code in main.c?

    #ifdef ICC430
    persistent /* IAR version. */
    #pragma PERSISTENT( ucHeap ) /* CCS version. */
    uint8t ucHeap[ configTOTALHEAP_SIZE ] = { 0 };

Should configAPPLICATION_ALLOCATED_HEAP to be defined 1 to use
heap_5.c ?
