Standard Data Types
Note: The pre-defined variable types that come with the PSoC programming suites are defined both with and without the _t suffix that most people use to define a typedef (e.g. uint8_t). I recommend using the version with the underscore, as this increases portability (this is also supported by Linux and other Unix-like systems). It is better practise to use the data types whose size is explicitly stated (e.g. uint32_t rather than unsigned int as the latter’s size is platform-dependant). The following data types are valid for all PSoC families.
// Standard C data types (implicit sizes)
// Types available through <stdint.h>
// Cypress-defined data types (explicit sizes)
// Note that 64-bit data types are only availiable
// with the _t suffix
Standard C Variable Type Sizes On PSoC 5
|Data Type||Size (bytes)||Range||Decimal Precision (places)||printf() identifier|
These were discovered using the sizeof() command, and printing the result to a debug terminal.
