Hi,

Simple question regarding FreeRTOS MPU-port for Cortex M3: Is it required to memory align a task’s stack when running in privileged mode?

Thanks,
Joachim

Good question - the answer to which is “no”.   Privileged tasks have access to the entire RAM so it doesn’t matter where there stack is located.
