I am trying to setup a dual core test application with an LPC4370 (lpc-link2).
The slave program (running on m0app) should
1. switch of the LED - this is ok
2. toggle an output pin - also ok
3. toggle the board LED by using a SysTick Event - not running

So the Problem is that the slave application is activated but not responding to the SysTick Event.
1 Is it possible to make the slave respond to the SysTick Interrupt?
2 Is it generally possible to respond to Interrupts by the slave?
3 Is the m0app coprocessor equipped with all the periphery as the m4 main processor or will it respond to Interrupts generated by the m4 main processor? EG. does it have own Timers,  SSP etc.

Thank you for any hints

Here is the relevant code from the m0aa:

#if defined (__USE_LPCOPEN)
#if !defined(NO_BOARD_LIB)
    // Read clock settings and update SystemCoreClock variable
    // Set up and initialize all required blocks and
    // functions related to the board hardware

    // Set the LED to the state Off
    Board_LED_Set(0, false);                                                         //running                                                  
SysTick_Config(SystemCoreClock / TICKRATE_HZ1);       // will activate SysTick
    // TODO: insert code here

    // Force the counter to be placed into memory
    volatile static int i = 0 ;
    // Enter an infinite loop, just incrementing a counter
    while(1) {
        i++ ;
        Chip_GPIO_SetPinToggle(LPC_GPIO_PORT,5, 8);          //running
    return 0 ;

void SysTick_Handler(void)
static int x = 0;
if (x++ > 500) {
Board_LED_Toggle(0);                                       //not running
x = 0;}
