STM32 Not resuming other tasks after IRQ

Posted by moamind on September 2, 2014

I am writing an application using FreeRTOS V8.0.1 and the STM32F4 discovery board (Cortex-M4) in keil.

When powering and running a GPS reciever on USART2 after the IRQ is run no other tasks will resume. It was my understanding that with the Cortex-M4 processors no state saving functions need to be called during the ISR to preserve the system state and ISRs can be written as normal ensuring any rtos functions are *FromISR

In the code below I have an LCD initialise and display the some SD card information with another task updating the display with clock information. As soon as the gpstask runs and the chip recieves power (therefore transmitting NMEA strings) the IRQ will fire, the task run and then according to the debugger the application never leaves the gpstasks infinite while loop (even sleeping the task doesnt help).

I do not understand what could cause the other tasks (LED flag, Update time, etc) to no longer be scheduled.

STM32 Not resuming other tasks after IRQ

I can't see that you are clearing the uart interrupt. Perhaps you are just continuously exiting then reentering the interrupt.

Close Dave, thanks for the nudge.

It appears on this chipset the data buffer must be read to clear the interrupt.

modifying the IRQ handler to...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :::c++

void USART2IRQHandler(void){ uint8t data; data = (uint8t)USARTReceiveData(USART2);

alert_red(ON);

}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is always fun starting with a new chip and a new OS at the same time. Mods can delete as this is not a FreeRTOS issue if they wish.
