Hi :slight_smile:

On a interrupt routine I’ve placed the following code:

    uint8 msg;
    xQueueSendToBackFromISR ( CANopenQueue_handle, &msg,   &xHigherPriorityTaskWoken );
    portEND_SWITCHING_ISR ( xHigherPriorityTaskWoken );

the task that is performing a:

xQueueReceive ( CANopenQueue_handle, &msg, …

no longer seems to run.

If I don’t use portEND_SWITCHING_ISR then all is well.

Any ideas?

You don’t say which compiler you are using. Have you checked the WEB documentation page for a similar port (sam7 with the same compiler) to see how an ISR should be written? Different compilers have different requirements as to when and how the task context should be saved and restored.

I’ve been using IAR 5.20 on an AT91SAM7A3.

I’ve taken the AT91SAM7S64 example and created (with small changes, just the include and linker files) a port for the AT91SAM7A3.

I’ve looked to the example of serial.c for the AT91SAM7S64 but somehow it does not seem to be up to date since it does not use __irq in the declaration of the interrupt routine. So most likely this is from IAR 4 and uses the IRQ_Handler_Entry provided in Cstartup.s79 file.

the same happens with usbsample.c

more ideas, please. :slight_smile:

See "an example of an ISR with context switching capabilities" on the following page and all will be clear:
