SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.
You can get more information from the ac6-tools website and download two short videos (registration required) highlighting:

Bootloader re-entry point from app on STM32F072

France

Hi everyone,

I’m using a custom board with STM32F072CB on board.
I’m using a custom bootloader and a simple app that make blink a led.

I modified the linker script of app to start at the right address.
-----------------------------------
linker script of app:
---------
/* Entry Point */
ENTRY(Reset_Handler)

/* Highest address of the user mode stack */
_estack = 0x20004000; /* end of RAM */

_Min_Heap_Size = 0; /* required amount of heap */
_Min_Stack_Size = 0x400; /* required amount of stack */

/* Memories definition */
MEMORY
{
RAM (xrw) : ORIGIN = 0x200000C0, LENGTH = 16K - 0xC0
ROM (rx) : ORIGIN = 0x08002000, LENGTH = 128K - 0x2000
}
...
-----------------------------------
in my bootloader, i would like create an re-entry point (hot start) from app, so i try to modified the linker script to avec a start section like this:

/* Entry Point */
ENTRY(Reset_Handler)

/* Highest address of the user mode stack */
_estack = 0x20002000; /* end of 8K RAM on AHB bus*/

/* Generate a link error if heap and stack don’t fit into RAM */
_Min_Heap_Size = 0; /* required amount of heap */
_Min_Stack_Size = 0x400; /* required amount of stack */

/* Specify the memory areas */
MEMORY
{
FLASH (rx)  : ORIGIN = 0x08000000, LENGTH = 16K - 16
RESTART (rx)  : ORIGIN = 0x08001FFC, LENGTH = 4
RAM (xrw)  : ORIGIN = 0x20000000, LENGTH = 8K
MEMORY_B1 (rx)  : ORIGIN = 0x60000000, LENGTH = 0K

}

/* Define output sections */
SECTIONS
{
/* The startup code goes first into FLASH */
.isr_vector :
{
. = ALIGN(4);
KEEP(*(.isr_vector)) /* Startup code */
. = ALIGN(4);
} >FLASH

.restart_vector :
{
. = ALIGN(4);
KEEP(*(.restart_vector)) /* ReStartup code */
. = ALIGN(4);
} >RESTART
-----------------------------------
in my code i added this section:
// The vector table.
// This relies on the linker script to place at correct location in memory.
typedef void (* const pRestart)(void);

attribute ((section(“.restart_vector”),used))
pRestart Restart_Vectors[] = { (pRestart) Restart };

anyone could help me ?
thanks
