Why do you need stack analysis?

Stack memory has to be allocated statically by

the programmer. Underestimating stack usage

can lead to serious runtime errors which can

be difficult to find. Overestimating stack

usage means a waste of memory resources.

aiCall/stack provides automatic tool support

to calculate the stack usage of your application

aiCall/stack not only reduces development effort

but also helps to prevent runtime errors due to

stack overflow

The analysis results provide valuable feedback

in optimizing the stack usage of your


Supported compilers and platforms

The stack analysis module is available as an

add-on to aiCall (

aiCall visualizes assembler files in .src format

as produced by the Tasking C compiler for

C16x/ST10 microcontrollers. aiCall is available

for Linux, Solaris, Windows 9x, 2000 and Windows
