CY_CPU_CORTEX_M0P Not Defined While Editing Files in PSoC Creator 4.2 for PSoC 6 - KBA227424

Version: **

 

Question:

Why is CY_CPU_CORTEX_M0P not defined while editing firmware or code in PSoC Creator™ 4.2 for PSoC® 6 as shown in Figure 1?

Figure 1. Undefined CY_CPU_CORTEX_M0P

 

Answer:

When Arm® GCC is used as compiler toolchain, CY_CPU_CORTEX_M4 is defined while CY_CPU_CORTEX_M0P is not defined as shown in Figure 1.

 

If you use Arm MDK as compiler toolchain, then e. CY_CPU_CORTEX_M0P will be defined and CY_CPU_CORTEX_M4 will not be defined.

 

This is a limitation when files are edited in PSoC Creator. The Inline Code diagnostics feature is unable to associate the code with its corresponding core. By default, either Cortex®-M0+ or Cortex-M4 is active based on the selected compiler toolchain.
