Hello all! I've run into a problem while implementing a granular synth on a STM32F4 Discovery using MIOS32. The synth algorithm makes use of floating point operations - I thought it would not be a source of performance issue, since the MCU has a dedicated unit for floating point calculations. Actually, there are performance issues, because the FPU is not enabled for the compiler (I'm using the original toolchain). There's a line commented out in trunk/include/makefile/common.mk: ifeq ($(FAMILY),STM32F4xx) # leads to a crash - reason not analysed yet #CFLAGS += -mcpu=cortex-m4 -mfpu=fpv4-sp-d16 -mthumb -mfloat-abi=hard -mlittle-endian -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections -fomit-frame-pointer # works (but FPU not enabled) CFLAGS += -mcpu=cortex-m4 -mlittle-endian -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections -fomit-frame-pointer endif I tried to uncomment that line, it compiled, but crashed for real on the MCU. Do you know if there's a workaround for that? What can be the source of this problem? Rewriting the synth algorithm is not an option, this is my thesis project, and the deadline is close. Thanks in advance!
