"vPortSetInterruptMask" erro...

Posted by Francisco Moon on March 26, 2012
Hello, Somebody who help me...

Please help me... I don't know what's wrong.

- STM32F2x7_ETH_Lwip + 3 task (I made 3 tasks)

I sometimes got a HardFault_Handler.

Call stack + Locals (I can see below call stack when i got a hardfault_handler)
- HardFault_Handler 0x08019892
- vPortSetInterruptMask 0x0800020A
- xPortSysTickHandler 0x0804CA06

I don' know what's wrong.

added 3 tasks
xTaskCreate(uart_task, "UART_DEBUG", configMINIMAL_STACK_SIZE, NULL, LED_TASK_PRIO+1, NULL);
xTaskCreate(uart_timer_task, "UART_TIMER", configMINIMAL_STACK_SIZE, NULL, LED_TASK_PRIO, NULL);
xTaskCreate(CDS_ITF_task, "CDS_IFT", 7168, NULL, 10, NULL);

I don't think the code you posted can help remote diagnostic without seeing the task code.

Did you start with a working project? Can you go back to that and add back in your code bit by bit until the problem replicates?

Do you have stack overflow checking turned on.

Have you ensured all the topics on this page are covered? Especially point 3: http://www.freertos.org/FAQHelp.html

Thanks for your advices.
I did go back to orginal working project. And then I added some code again step by step.
I think I found a problem where occur.
I modified a scatter file to use an external memory.
# scatter file.
LR_IROM1 0x08000000 0x00100000 { ; load region size_region
ER_IROM1 0x08000000 0x00100000 { ; load address = execution address
*.o (RESET, +First)
.ANY (+RO)
;RW_IRAM1 0x20000000 0x00020000 { ; RW data
; .ANY (+RW +ZI)
RW_RAM1 0x60000000 0x00100000 { ; RW data
.ANY (+RW +ZI)
heap_2.o (+RW +ZI)
tasks.o (+RW +ZI)
RW_IRAM1 0x20000000 0x00020000 {
startup_stm32f2xx.o (+RW +ZI)
stm32f2xx_rcc.o (+RW +ZI)
stm32f2x7_eth.o (+RW +ZI)

It was mainly cause. But I don't have any ideas to clear it.

If you have any ideas, please give me some ideas.

I added back in my code bit by bit. When I use an external ram, It always occurred.

In the beginning, it works well.
But after some minutes, I got a problem about systick handler.
Before crash the system, the system works slowly. And then the system crash...

What do I do anything else?

Please give me some ideas...
