I'm using the STM32 MAT plugin and embedded coder for Simulink to generate C-Code out of my models to compile them onto an STM32F4. As IDE I use TrueStudio and for my MCU Configuration I use CubeMX.

Because my discrete solver step time in Simulink is set, it seems that the embedded coder tries to make a Software based Interrupt every 0.001 seconds.

 #include "main.h"

void SystemClock_Config(void); static void MX_GPIO_Init(void); #include #include "untitled.h" /* Model's header file / #include "rtwtypes.h" / MathWorks types */

extern RT_MODEL_untitled const untitled_M; extern void untitled_SetEventsForThisBaseStep(boolean_T); static boolean_T OverrunFlags[1]; static volatile uint32_t autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S = 1; static volatile uint32_t remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S = 1;

int main(void) { int_T i; HAL_Init(); SystemClock_Config(); MX_GPIO_Init();

/* Systick configuration and enable SysTickHandler interrupt */ if (SysTick_Config((uint32_t)(SystemCoreClock * 0.001))) { autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S = 1; do { autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S++; } while ((uint32_t)(SystemCoreClock * 0.001)/autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S > SysTick_LOAD_RELOAD_Msk); SysTick_Config((uint32_t)(SystemCoreClock * 0.001)/autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S); } remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S = autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S;//Set nb of loop to do for (i=0;i<1;i++) { OverrunFlags[i] = 0; } untitled_initialize(); while (1) { /*Process tasks every solver time*/ if (remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S == 0) { remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S = autoReloadTimerLoopVal_S; /* Check base rate for overrun */ if (OverrunFlags[0]) { rtmSetErrorStatus(untitled_M, "Overrun"); } OverrunFlags[0] = true; /* Step the model for base rate */ untitled_step(); OverrunFlags[0] = false; } } } /* SysTick_Handler callback function*/ /*This handler is called every tick and schedules tasks*/ void HAL_SYSTICK_Callback(void) { /* For TIME OUT processing */ HAL_IncTick(); /* Manage nb of loop before interrupt has to be processed */ if (remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S) { remainAutoReloadTimerLoopVal_S--; } }

Unfortunately when I try to run the Code, nothing happens. The Compiler always stucks at the if condition in the while (1) Loop. So I see that there's something wrong here with the Interrupt handling, but I don't know how to resolve the issue. Probably you can help

    \$\begingroup\$ Without trying to be a smart aleck, it seems like you need to roll up your sleeves and learn how to use your tools. As somebody who has done things like you're describing quite a few times, just getting up to the point you describe is a 20 to 40 hour process. \$\endgroup\$ – Scott Seidman Apr 24 '19 at 13:16

I think you need to enable the interrupt in your NVIC. Try adding:


before your while loop.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hello there, thanks for your answer. unfortunately that doens't make any difference :/ i have to admit that for the clock configuration, i use the pll with and external clock if that helps... \$\endgroup\$ – SiC Apr 24 '19 at 13:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ I did a Workaround by adding HAL_SYSTICK_Callback(); into the SysTick_Handler() function void SysTick_Handler(void) { HAL_IncTick(); HAL_SYSTICK_Callback(); } Don't know if that's the correct way to do it... \$\endgroup\$ – SiC Apr 24 '19 at 14:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ Your startup file creates weak interrupts handlers. You can override this handlers and write your code in the new interrupt handler. What you did now is create a new irqHandler and called your callback function, this is fine. Beware to not call HAL_IncTick twice. \$\endgroup\$ – Wisse Apr 24 '19 at 14:57
