I found a BUG in IAR LPC2129 PORT

Posted by Nobody/Anonymous on March 21, 2006
Salam,

in port.c

ulCompareMatch = configCPU_CLOCK_HZ / configTICK_RATE_HZ;

That's wrong cause the clock of the peripherals (include Timer0) is NOT CPU Clock (CCLK) but it's PCLK.

and

PCLK = CCLK / VBP Divider

At reset for LPC2129 VBP Divider = 4

So The above line must be


ulCompareMatch = (configCPU_CLOCK_HZ /4 ) / configTICK_RATE_HZ;

I found this bug when i was trying to blink a led every second using vTaskDelayUntil

Here is my working code.

static void vTaskCode(void *pvParameters)
{
portTickType xLastWakeTime;
const portTickType xFrequency = 1000;
xLastWakeTime = xTaskGetTickCount();

for (;;) {
Led_Toggle();
vTaskDelayUntil( &xLastWakeTime, xFrequency );
}
}

I forgot to mention that configTICK_RATE_HZ must be configure to 1000 in freeRTOSconfig.h to use the above task to blink the led every 1 SEC :-)

I think, as downloaded, the line should actually be:

ulCompareMatch = ( configCPU_CLOCK_HZ / configTICK_RATE_HZ ) - 1;

cpu clock being defined to the correect value for the equation.

You change the value or use different hardware?

AS DOWNLOADED THE LINE IS


/* Calculate the match value required for our wanted tick rate. */
ulCompareMatch = configCPU_CLOCK_HZ / configTICK_RATE_HZ;

THAT IS NOT RIGHTTTTTTTTTTTT

AS DOWNLOADED

ulCompareMatch = configCPU_CLOCK_HZ / configTICK_RATE_HZ;

This is not right !!!

I use Olimex board (LPC2129)

So configCPU_CLOCK_HZ = 14745600 (crystal value)

I didn't use the PLL.

#define configCPU_CLOCK_HZ( ( unsigned portLONG ) 14745600 )

BYE

It is right if you are using the same software and hardware as the demo with no modifications at all. I know because I can time the LED's flashing and they are exactly correct.

I think you are making an assumption as to what configCPU_CLOCK_HZ means. This should be set to the frequency as used by the timer which may but probably will not be the same as some other clocks on the system.

That's right man.

configCPU_CLOCK_HZ must be the clock of the Timer.

So configCPU_CLOCK_HZ must be

configCPU_CLOCK_HZ = configCPU_CLOCK_HZ / VBP Divider

Please look to the datasheet
