Software code and endian effects

Posted: 04 Mar 2011     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:endian  RX 

This document by Renesas Electronics Corp. describes the endian (little endian and big endian). Using sample programs, it also describes precautions which should be taken when writing software.

This application note shows software codes for variable type conversion, data transfer to an array variable of different type and reading values of defined members of a union. They are examples of code which should be carefully written. This application note assumes that the RX microcontroller's mode pin (MDE) settings match the compiler's endian settings (for little endian and big endian byte ordering).
