## Cortex-A vs Cortex-M. Differents CRC output calculation ?

Hello,

I have an issue with a software that originally work for an embedded Linux system on ARM-A7 core.That software contain a check sum based on a polynomial CRC-16 modbus. It work very well on ARM-A7 core and even other architectures (x86, amd64). But when I port the code to KL25 ARM-M0+ core, the check sum result give me a wrong output.

My input buffer contain 6 bytes : 0x 01 05 00 02 FF 00 (from MSB to LSB respectively)

The output result should be : 0x FA 2D. I double checked with this link On-line CRC calculation and free library

But with ARM-M0+, I got : 0x 45 92 ?!

So, where is the bug ? From ALU ? Compilation ? Data type or sign ?

Down below is the code I used. I did not write it myself. It is just a copy paste from a website found somewhere on internet. I believe that if I analyse the process of that code and read the link above, I could find a way to solve my problem but... Nah ! I am bit lazy to night.:smileylaugh:

I am very curious to understand why it does that. Anyone have an idea ?

`unsigned int CRC(char* buf, int len){  unsigned int crc = 0xFFFF;  int pos;  for(pos = 0; pos < len; pos++) {    crc ^= (unsigned int)buf[pos];          // XOR byte into least sig. byte of crc    int i;    for (i = 8; i != 0; i--) {            // Loop over each bit      if ((crc & 0x0001) != 0) {      // If the LSB is set        crc >>= 1;                    // Shift right and XOR 0xA001        crc ^= 0xA001;      }      else                            // Else LSB is not set        crc >>= 1;                    // Just shift right    }  }  // Note, this number has low and high bytes swapped, so use it accordingly (or swap bytes)  return crc;}`

do you know what's the "int" size on the other compilers used? My first guess is that in an implementation "int" is 16-bit and other uses 32-bit.

Do a quick test: run the code by replacing any "unsigned int" to "uint16_t" and any int (assuming default is signed) as "int16_t" and see the output, then change the same types to "uint32_t" and "int32_t" and check the output.

Yes I did it Carlos. I replaced all unsigned int to uint16_t. But it only changed the outputs result by another wrong one.

In this link : On-line CRC calculation and free library​, I downloaded the sources and after some modifications, I implemented into my application. Now it work ! . The only bad thing is that CRC calculation cost now more spaces in memory because it use a table of 2*256 bytes...

If someone need a CRC-16 Modbus and do not really care about space memory code, below is the modified source code with its CRC-16 table. Tested with ARM Cortex-M0+ core. Enjoy it !
