ARMCC: Compiler reports "KB: Unexpected type: 6" error

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • ARM Compiler v5.xx


While working with Complex Float variables in the source code, ARMCC reports below error:

KB: Unexpected type: 6

float _ComplexKB: Unexpected type: 6


This is an issue in the compiler code that generates the OMF information which does not handle the Complex entry.


The only workaround at present is to uncheck Browse Information under Options for Target - Output tab in µVision .
