Vybrid Project Specifics

Target Processor

Once a project has been created you can select different target processors from the selected set by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting the Target property.

Selecting the target processor will specify the memory map that is used for the build and debug. You can view the selected memory map by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting Edit Memory Map. In the memory map files the memory segments defining the names, sizes and access types of the external memories are specified using macros which can be set using the Memory Map Macros project property.

Section Placement

CrossStudio for ARM supports Vybrid projects running applications in a number of different memory configurations. You can select the memory configuration you require by right clicking on the project node in the project explorer and selecting the Placement property.

For Vybrid Cortex-A5 projects the set of placements are:

For Vybrid Cortex-M4 projects the set of placements are:

To make use of the Cortex-M4 PC bus you can modify (a project local copy of) the section placement file to specify a runoffset. For example for an OCRAM build you can run the text in the OCRAM code alias space by adding runoffset="-0x20000000" to the text section.

Target Startup Code

In the startup code for the CA5 Vybrid_Startup.s there are a set of preprocessor defines that configure the startup code and are documented in the startup file itself.

In the startup code for the CM4 Vybrid_Startup2.s there are a set of preprocessor defines that configure the startup code and are documented in the startup file itself.

Target Reset Script

The reset script Vybrid_Target.js resets the target using the MDM AP and stops it in the bootloader. You should always ensure that the board enters the bootloader after reset.

Memory Simulator

An Vybrid memory simulator is provided that simulates the memories of the various Vybrid devices. The memory simulation parameter (which is set by the Target Processor selection) contains macros that determine the sizes of the simulated memories and can be specified using the Memory Simulation Parameter Macros property.

CTL support

The file Vybrid_ctl.c implements the ctl_set_isr, ctl_unmask_isr and ctl_mask_isr functions by programming the GIC/NVIC/MSCM_IRC register groups. The vector parameter to these functions corresponds to the GIC interruptID as defined in the Vybrid reference manual. The same vector numbers can be used for both CA5 and CM4 interrupt handlers e.g. the CM4 vector 32 corresponds to the CPU to CPU int0 vector for both cores. For the CA5 the priority parameter to the ctl_set_isr is the GIC priority i.e. lower numbers have higher priorities. For the CA5 if nested interrupts are enabled for the irq_handler then the priority is a pre-emption priority i.e. interrupt handlers can be interrupted by higher priority interrupt handlers. For the CM4 the priority has 8 added to it so that it is always in the lowest half of the priority range. The startup code Vybrid_Startup.s implements the CA5 irq_handler exception handler.

Header and Library Files

The Freescale header and system init files are provided.
