Hardware FPU library cannot be found

Hi ,

I know the following libraries are :

1. libosT7VLDP - compiled as -mfloat-abi = softfp .
2. libosT7LDP.a - compiles as -mfloat-abi = soft .

But i could not find a library that compiled as -mfloat-abi = hard , does it even exists ? can i work with embOS like that ? , because if i try working with the library when i compile my program as -mfloat-abi = hard , i get the vfp linkage error.

Any suggestions ?

Best regards,

Hello Michael,

the embOS FPU libraries are built with the GCC option -mfloat-abi=softfp.
‘softfp’ allows the generation of code using hardware floating-point instructions, but still uses the soft-float calling conventions.

Please use the same option in your project, you can't use 'hard' with embOS FPU libraries.

Best regards,
