I am using a Zynq-7000 with FreeRTOS and some custom hardware IPs inside the FPGA. Those IPs send interrupts to the ARM core but I have some problems while handling them.
The interrupt routine is correctly called after receiving the interrupt but, as soon as it executes "xQueueReceiveFromISR()", I get two errors an the execution stops.
The errors are:
Assert failed in file port.c, line 539
Assert failed in file port.c, line 424
The first error is related to the following function, in particular to the first "configASSERT()":
void vPortValidateInterruptPriority( void )
/* The following assertion will fail if a service routine (ISR) for
an interrupt that has been assigned a priority above
configMAXSYSCALLINTERRUPTPRIORITY calls an ISR safe FreeRTOS API
function. ISR safe FreeRTOS API functions must only be called
from interrupts that have been assigned a priority at or below
Numerically low interrupt priority numbers represent logically high
interrupt priorities, therefore the priority of the interrupt must
be set to a value equal to or numerically *higher* than
FreeRTOS maintains separate thread and ISR API functions to ensure
interrupt entry is as fast and simple as possible. */
configASSERT( portICCRPR_RUNNING_PRIORITY_REGISTER >= ( uint32_t ) ( configMAX_API_CALL_INTERRUPT_PRIORITY << portPRIORITY_SHIFT ) );
/* Priority grouping: The interrupt controller (GIC) allows the bits
that define each interrupt's priority to be split between bits that
define the interrupt's pre-emption priority bits and bits that define
the interrupt's sub-priority. For simplicity all bits must be defined
to be pre-emption priority bits. The following assertion will fail if
this is not the case (if some bits represent a sub-priority).
The priority grouping is configured by the GIC's binary point register
(ICCBPR). Writting 0 to ICCBPR will ensure it is set to its lowest
possible value (which may be above 0). */
configASSERT( ( portICCBPR_BINARY_POINT_REGISTER & portBINARY_POINT_BITS ) <= portMAX_BINARY_POINT_VALUE );
The second error is related to the following function, in particular to the last "configASSERT()":
void vPortEnterCritical( void )
/* Mask interrupts up to the max syscall interrupt priority. */
/* Now interrupts are disabled ulCriticalNesting can be accessed
directly. Increment ulCriticalNesting to keep a count of how many times
portENTER_CRITICAL() has been called. */
/* This is not the interrupt safe version of the enter critical function so
assert() if it is being called from an interrupt context. Only API
functions that end in "FromISR" can be used in an interrupt. Only assert if
the critical nesting count is 1 to protect against recursive calls if the
assert function also uses a critical section. */
if( ulCriticalNesting == 1 )
configASSERT( ulPortInterruptNesting == 0 );
Does anyone have any idea of what the problem may be?
Thanks for the link.
As the link says, "configINTERRUPTCONTROLLERCPUINTERFACEOFFSET" should be equal to 0x1000. In my BSP that #define is ( -0xf00 ). Could it be a problem?
Moreover, I understood that the priority of my interrupts should be lower than configMAXAPICALLINTERRUPTPRIORITY (that is 18 in my case), but I do not know how to check/change their priority.
Is there a function to do that?
Thanks for the help!
When interrupts are initialized, after "XScuGicConnect()", you should call "XScuGicSetPriorityTriggerType(XScuGic *InstancePtr, u32 IntId, u8 Priority, u8 Trigger)" and set the priority of each interrupt ( Priority = *yourpriority << portPRIORITYSHIFT*).
Thank you all!
