Optimization with RW data compression

4.7 Optimization with RW data compression

RW data areas typically contain a large number of repeated values, such as zeros, that makes them suitable for compression.

RW data compression is enabled by default to minimize ROM size.
The linker compresses the data. This data is then decompressed on the target at run time.
The ARM libraries contain some decompression algorithms and the linker chooses the optimal one to add to your image to decompress the data areas when the image is executed. You can override the algorithm chosen by the linker.
