    Not seeing TI_0 interrupt flag when sending serial data mode 0

      I'm attempting to get serial mode 0 communications working using the CY3684 demo board (CY7C68013A).


      The TRM indicates (14.3.3 pg 203 table 14-11 for SCON0.1) that once a byte is successfully transmitted, the USART0 interrupt is triggered and the TI_0 bit (bit 1) in the SCON0 SFR is set.


      My problem is that, while I do see the interrupt happing, the TI_0 bit doesn't appear to be set.


      I'm using the Keil C51 c compiler and the framework provided by Cypress.  Below are the bits of code I think are relevant.




      Setting up for serial communication:


          // Port E setup
          PORTECFG = 0x28; // Enable RXD0OUT and INT6 for serial coms, all other alternate functions disabled (TRM 13.4.4)
          OEE      = 0x08; // Set port RXD0OUT to output, all others inputs

          // Serial coms on serial port 0 setup (TRM 14.3.3)
          SCON0    = 0x00;   // Mode 0, baud CLKOUT/12
          EICON   &= 0xF7;
          g_is_tx  = FALSE;
          IE      |= bmBIT4; // Enable recieve and transmit interrupts
          EIE     |= bmBIT4; // Enable INT6 interrupt (used for FPGA to signal data to tx)
          EICON   &= 0xF7;

          EA = 1;




      The byte to be sent is provided by a vendor request over EP0.


      BOOL DR_VendorCmnd(void)
          switch (SETUPDAT[1])
          case CMD_SEND_BYTE:
              SBUF0 = SETUPDAT[2];
              g_is_tx = TRUE;
              EP0CS |= bmHSNAK;





      The USART0 ISR.  It turns on LED2 when called, and conditionally turns on LED3 and LED4 based on the TI_0 and RI_0 interrupt flags.  LED2 does turn on, but LED3 and LED4 don't.


      void ISR_USART0(void) interrupt 4
          unsigned char temp;

          temp = LED2ON;

          if (SCON0 & 0x01 > 0)
              temp = LED3ON;

          if (SCON0 & 0x02 > 0)
              temp = LED4ON;




      I feel like I'm missing something basic, but just haven't been able to figure it out.  Any help would be very appreciated.
