  • [SOLVED] Stack pointer is setup to incorrect alignment

    Hello
    I'm using
    - J-Link V6.52b
    - NXP MK10DX128xxx7 as target
    - IAR Workbench for ARM 8.11.3.13984
    - Windows 7 Prof., SP 1
    When using Download and Debug I always get the
    Warning: Stack pointer is setup to incorrect alignment. Stack addr = 0x20003FF7
    Afterwards the C-program is ready to run at main(), and upon Go it seems to work correctly.
    My possibly relevant debugger settings are:
    - Debugger > Download: Default, nothing selected
    - J-Link/J-Trace > Setup: Reset 'Normal'
    - J-Link/J-Trace > Connection: USB, JTAG
    Attached are the debug log and the communication log.

    Any suggestion on how to avoid this warning?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    Please note that IAR Workbench is no SEGGER product so we can't help you out here.
    We suggest contacting IAR support instead.

    Best regards,
    Nino

  • Thank you Nino for your hint.
    The IAR support let me check the linker file. There I found a definition for the 'Initial Supervisor SP' (VECTOR_000) evaluating to 0x20003FF7. But the initial SP must be 8-byte aligned. Observing this rule solves the problem.
    (I didn't check the linker file earlier because I took the project from one of my colleagues who used an I-Jet instaed of a J-Link. With the I-Jet he didn't see this warning.)
    So you can close this thread.
    Kind regards
    Peter
  • Hello Peter,

    Good to hear that you are up and running again.
    It appears that I-Jet simply ignores the error and works around it.
    We on the other hand will tell you if the IDE tells J-Link something "illegal" to do ;)

    This thread will be marked as solved now.

    Best regards,
    Nino
