New guy here - no prior experience with PSoC Creator or this family of hw.
I just inherited an existing 3-part project (launcher, stack, app) and am trying to simply build it to get oriented with the system. I was able to build the launcher project with no problem. When I build the stack project, I get this error:
Error: flash row: 1024 is either already used or does not exist.
The command 'cyelftool.exe' failed with exit code '1'.
The device in question (CY8C4128LQI-BL543) has 256k of flash, which, at 256 bytes/row (as seen on the cyelftool.exe command shown in the output), translates to 1023 rows - namely, row 1024 is surely out of range. My project does not appear to be actually out of flash resource, though, as the Resource Meter for the project shows flash at 50.9% and SRAM at 55%. I took a look at the map file and found that the last code in the flash area were constants located at 0x20182 - roughly half of 0x40000 - consistent with that 50% metric.
There was one tiny block of data later, at the very high end of flash:
0x0003ffc0 0x40 .\CortexM0\ARM_GCC_541\Debug\cymetadata.o
But at size 0x40, it should fit exactly in that last little bit of space, ending neatly at 0x3FFFF and not overrunning my 0x40000 limit.
I ran cyelftool on the command line to see if it had any verbosity arguments - hoping to get it to tell me the name of the thing it was working on when it overran memory - but found nothing in its help output that looked promising.
I'm seeking guidance for even how to investigate this issue. Thank you!
Here's the section header output from objdump.
It confirms that DATA/TEXT parts occupy just over 0x20000, half the flash. The cyloadablemeta section butts up against the end of flash space, but appears to end just at 3FFFFF - no reason to think cyelftool would need to allocate anything after row 1023.
