APPLICATION NOTE 4458

Executing Application Code from RAM on the MAXQ8913 Microcontroller


Abstract: The Harvard memory map architecture used by the MAXQ8913 and other MAXQ® microcontrollers provides users with the flexibility to map different physical memory segments (such as the data SRAM) into either program or data memory space, as needed. Under certain circumstances, executing portions of an application from data SRAM can provide a performance boost and reduce power consumption. These benefits come at the cost of additional application complexity.
