IRQ interrupt handling

Posted by Cyber Knight on April 2, 2006

The vector table in the boot.s of ARM7LPC2016, specifies a vector table, and for the IRQ interrupt its loading PC with

ldr pc, [pc,#-0xFF0]

What this actually does?

I have found the VIC memory mapping in the file lpc210x.h.

What will happen if there are multiple IRQ interrupts?

This allows auto vectoring to the ISR by reading the address directly from the VIC. Please read the manual for the LPC2106 where this is explained.

Sir, I didn't find any reference to VECTDATA_IRQ defined in lpc210x.h in the manual.

Can u please tell for what this is used for?

Let me guess, when an IRQ occurs ,this line in boot.s
ldr pc, [pc,#-0xFF0] executes.

After that what happens?
What is placed in the address [pc,#-0xFF0] ?

The starting addresses of ISRs are placed in VectAdddrX ,right?

Take a look at:
http://www.semiconductors.philips.com/acrobat/usermanuals/UM_LPC2106_2105_2104_1.pdf

Pages 70 and 218. This is where the code comes from.
