portSAVE_CONTEXT not used in Cortex m0+? Isn't it needed for ISR wrapper?

Posted by thegi on January 10, 2014

Hi, I found that on Cortex M0 or on Cortex M3 GCC ports, there is no api for portSAVECONTEXT or port RESTORECONTEXT. I guess the task can handle context switching without those api's in arm architecture, but what about ISR? Don't I need to wrap my ISR functions with portSAVECONTEXT and portRESTROECONTEXT, if a context switch will occur inside my ISR function? If so, how should I define my own portSAVECONTEXT and portRESTORECONTEXT for cortex m series?

Thanks, GI

No they are not needed. Please read the "Interrupt Service Routines" section of any of the Cortex M0 or M3 documentation pages, and refer to the many examples provided.
