Flash vs Sram
Can someone please expalin to me how the Arduino decides on flash or Sram?
e.g. I have written a 4k program to the atmel328P which has 32k flash, 2k Sram amp 1k EEprom.
The IDE shows the amount of flash available but the code runs in Sram. I need some clarification on this isue.

Hi, I would like to store data in a 16kByte SRAM. When the memory of the SRAM has for example reached 10kByte it must send it to a FLASH sd- memorycard of 1GB. Meanwhile the SRAM is still storing new data in the SRAM cells. Does someone knows if reading and writing simultaneously in SRAM is possible ? And is there a maximum write/erase cycle for SRAM? (not mentionned in ATmega datasheet) Thank you !Here is the problem. Code is located in 0x1000_0000 (Chip select 0), it is an external flash. The program can boot off there and run. I need to be able to write to the flash. I tried appending the keyword "__ramfunc" and it just jumps to the area 0x4 (Not sure what error that is). I am a computer scientist, with no formal computer engineering training. And i am the sole person working on this project. So i am a bit out of my league. I have a flash driver written, and i am able to get the Manufacturer ID and Device ...Hi, We are trying to re-design an application that uses old H8 and we want to consider Xmega. Existing device has flash and SRAM connected on 16 bit address line and 8 bit data line. I would like to know if this is possible with Xmega device. I only see an example in the datasheet about connecting SRAM on the DMA. Unfortunately I haven't used DMA/Bus architecture before and not clear exactly how it works. Is it possible to connect external flash on the bus along with external RAM. Also can some body help me if it is possible to ...Hello everybody. I modify a flash.sct file in SAM3U-EK example code for running boot code that is stored in embedded flash memory(128KB) by sram(32KB) Base concept is 'copy the codes from Flash to SRAM and jump to the SRAM and excute it' Before Code:I have an STM32 dev board with some external SRAM. I would like to execute my code from that external SRAM, but my processor only supports booting from the Flash, internal SRAM or System memory (a part of the internal SRAM). What is the easiest way to run code from an external SRAM? Notes: I load code with OpenOCD through JTAG, and I use GDB.I am considering using something like AT91SAM7S64 or S128 as a possible alternative to Cortex M3. Most Cortex M3 have very small RAM and fast flash so you typically would run your app out of flash. The AT92SAM7S64/128 has 64K/128K flash and 16K/32K of SRAM. I am not sure whether you should copy the app from flash to RAM and run there or if most user just run the app from flash. (The 16K/32K of SRAM would be too small to run my app without some sort of swapping scheme between flash and ram.) What is typically done in this ...Hello: How to setup the Bootloader and JTAG to run from the external FLASH/SRAM board? Do you have setup demo that download app image into external FLASH (x8 by 1Mbit) and using SRAM (x8 - 8Mbit)? ---------------- Short descriptions ----------------- I have the application that is getting larger. I need to download the app image into the external FLASH (external board), and run from external flash. I am looking at the TI forum, and see some people have success running their application from the external flash/sram board. If so, can you please give me some technical notes that ...I use a Atmega88 as a power controller in a larger system with another processor. I have some state information in SRAM that I'd like preserved on the AVR side. What I've observed is that if the other processor uses the serial programming interface (SPI) of the AVR to simply read Flash or EEPROM data of the AVR, when the AVR runs again, the SRAM contents are not affected. (when I disable clearing of SRAM at init in CV-AVR). But when the other processor reprograms that AVR (uses chip erase/write program memory/write EEPROM memory commands) then it looks like the ...Hello all, I have a very newbish question. When some Mega* avr says it has 4K of SRAM, does this mean 4 KiloBytes or 4 Kilo BITS? Also when I declare a variable ( say "float x = 22.83") is it written to flash or sram? I apologize for the newb question. I did do some searching first, but I only found partial answers to my question. Thank You!I am testing a board that has external SRAM. Apparently the SRAM is relatively sensitive to the soldering heat from the manufacturing process, and so careful testing must be done to check integrity of SRAM for newly manufactured boards. What is the best (bare-metal) way to test SRAM? I have a driver that initialises the SRAM for read/write access. My first thought is to run tests such as: 1) Set all bits in SRAM to 1, and check that the SRAM was properly written. 2) Write the digits of Pi in SRAM, and check that the write was done properly. ...hi, I am working on one of the Automation Project.so my code is too long with using of more Variables and Flash memory of the MCU. So now i wants to Extend my SRAM by interfacing of SRAM Externally. But if its compatible to interface with PIC18F46J11 amp also How ? Please guide me . Regards,Hi All - I'm trying to set up my code to execute out of internal SRAM on an AT91FR40162 using the IAR EWARM toolset. Does anyone have any advice on how to do this? If the linker thinks ROM starts at 0x00000000 (which it does prior to remap) and the remap command moves the internal SRAM to address 0x00000000, there should be no problem simply copying the code from flash into sram before the remap. Is there more to it than this? Many Thanks... DanHi everybody, I am not sure to understand correctly how the whole CPU works. AFAIU, when we "ship" a code to the AVR, this code is copied in the FLASH memory. Then, when the AVR starts up, this code is linearly (?) mapped to the SRAM. For every instruction, the CPU fetches amp decode it (1 clk) and then execute it (gt= 1clk), also it uses a 1 stage pipeline in order to Fetch/decode the next instruction while executing the current instruction. Where I am fuzzy, it is how the code comes from memory to SRAM. My concern is that ...I am having some problems getting a BL2500C to retain data stored in SRAM after losing power. My application works fine on a BL2100 (that is, no data is lost when it is powered off). The same code is not working properly on a BL2500C. I am wondering if it has to do with the fact that the BL2500C has two SRAM's, 512K for program and 256K for data. What lead me down this train of thought is the following comment, specific to the BL2500C, which I stumbled across in BOARDTYPES.LIB: "Compile to RAM option programs the battery-backed RAM on CS1 ...Here's my top-secret big idea (I'm such a blabber mouth): I'll combine a SQI flash chip with 4 SPI SRAM chips. The SRAMs will have SI and SO connected together (I may use a series resistor on SO for failsafe) and all four sharing the same clock and chip select. Will it work? Don't know... I hope to find out by Friday... But, maybe you can convince me this won't work and save me time and money? In this nibble configuration, the board will use 8 pins. That will let it still work on the Prop Demo board. In byte mode, it will need 12 pins. This is ...How to store variables in microcontroller inbuild flash? to reduce the overhead of SRAM.

Thanks shyam tayade email@example.comHi, I need to develop a boot loader for AT91SAM7S64 using the UART. 1. Is it possible to run the boot loader in flash and yet program other flash sections. E.g. assume I have allocated the first 4KB FLASH to my boot loader, now is it required for me to copy this 4KB into SRAM before flashing any other FLASH area. 2. I did not understand the concept of Internal ROM that contains the SAM-BA boot loader. I have seen some CAN boot loaders for AT91SAM7S64 which copies the SAM-BA to SRAM before execution. Why? 3. For the application SW, I plan to have one ...I am currently working on a project to analyze the effects of cosmic ray radiation on microcontrollers. I have designed and fabricated a PCB to analyze hard errors; however, I am having trouble on the soft error aspect. Does anyone know of any good references for writing a memory checking code for flash/EEPROM/SRAM? Right now I have implemented a CRC check of flash memory, but I'm not sure that this is adequate. Additionally, I would also like to check EEPROM and SRAM. Thanks in advance!Hi i have stm32f100rb mcu and i need to have custom memory map on it it can be a virtual memory which looks like from outside like or something like memory remap i was never doing somethink like that and i dont even know if its possible.... for example - program running on pc want to read ram from 0x00000 to 0x0FFFF - but sram on the stm32f is from 0x1FFFFFFF to 0x3FFFFFFF so its there some way to have (0x00000-0x0FFFF)Block of memory on procesor sram address... the device must have this memory map 0x0 - 0x0FFFF - SRAM 0x10000-0x7FFFF - eeprom - external ...Hello. I have a question about how compiled program code is located in microcontroler, for example lets consider ATmega128 and ATmega32.
