Bit field structure difference between PSoC 1's HiTech Compiler and PSoC3's Keil Compiler

Question: While migrating a bit field structure from PSoC Designer project to PSoC Creator project, structure does not work properly. Why it is so?

 

Answer:

The bit fields must be declared in the opposite order with the Keil compiler; LSB to MSB. Here is an example of the code difference required.

Hi-Tech Compiler:


struct
{
     // MSB
     unsigned Type : 4;
     unsigned TxSeqn : 1;
     unsigned Sync : 1;
     unsigned RxSeqAckn : 1;
     unsigned SingleByteDeviceId : 1;
     // LSB
} sHdr;


Keil Compiler:


struct
{

     // LSB
     unsigned char SingleByteDeviceId : 1;
     unsigned char RxSeqAckn : 1;
     unsigned char Sync : 1;
     unsigned char TxSeqn : 1;
     unsigned char Type : 4;
     // MSB
} sHdr;
