Some MCUs (e.g. LPC2xxx family) designed by NXP Semiconductors expect a checksum of the interrupt vectors to validate the user code. If the checksum matches the user code will be executed as expected, otherwise the code will not be executed.

Calculation

The interrupt vector at 0x0000_0014 should contain the Two's complement of the sum of the interrupt vectors before.

Example

Address Value
0x0000_0000 0xEA000006
0x0000_0004 0xEAFFFFFE
0x0000_0008 0xEAFFFFFE
0x0000_000C 0xEAFFFFFE
0x0000_0010 0xEAFFFFFE
0x0000_0018 0xEAFFFFFE
0x0000_001C 0xEAFFFFFE

Sum = 0x6BFFFFFA // sum of all interrupt vectors (with unsigned wrap)

Checksum = ~(Sum) + 1 // checksum at 0x0000_0014 (two's complement of sum)

Troubleshooting

J-Flash will display a pop-up if the checksum is not valid and will offer to calculate the correct checksum for the user code:

If you do not want that the pop-up will show up, make sure that the checksum is correct (see (1) Calculation).
