MON166: HOW MUCH RAM IS REQUIRED?


Information in this article applies to:

  • C166 Version 3.12
  • C166 Version 4.05

QUESTION

How much RAM is required to use the MON166 target monitor in my hardware?

ANSWER

Very little RAM is required to use MON166. The monitor needs only 256 bytes of RAM for its internal use. The monitor program can be stored in 5K of EPROM or FLASH memory space. When using the on-chip bootstrap loader, the monitor program is loaded into 5K of external RAM.

In addition to the RAM required by the monitor, you will also need RAM to download your target program into as well as RAM for your target program's variables.

The total amount of RAM required depends on both the requirements of MON166 (256 bytes + 5K with bootstrap loader) and the size and memory requirements of your target program.

MORE INFORMATION

  • Refer to Using Monitor-166 in the C166 User's Guide.
  • Refer to Chapter 11 of the Getting Started manual in \Keil\C166\HLP\GS166.PDF for more information.
