However, many applications require floating point capability during an interrupt routine.
This predictable response is ensured even in the presence of heavy I/O due to the kernel's unique threading model, enabling interrupt routines to be extremely short and fast.
Highly critical interrupt routines can be locked in the 16 kByte instruction cache guaranteeing a deterministic response time to interrupts.
Crossware's comprehensive set of Code Creation Wizards are provided for all on-chip peripherals and are able to generate configuration code, interrupt routines and, for the UART, complete I/O handlers.
This integrated assembly support provides the benefits of highly optimized interrupt routines, precision peripheral control and efficient, high-speed assembly language functions.
Absolute determinism and kernel threading allow for interrupt routines to be short and fast, ensuring predictable response even in the presence of heavy I/O.
