FEATURE REQUEST SECTION IS NOW LOCKED

Post by VK3KYY » Tue Oct 20, 2020 11:20 pm

Because there is now very only a small amount of program memory available for further features, and there are still some big sections of functionality which need to be implemented, including SMS

I have now locked the Feature Request section


In case anyone wonders, the radio has 512 kilo bytes of program space and not all of it is available to the firmware.

The bootloader consumes 16k and there is 4k section at the top of the program memory, which is also used by the bootloader.

The codec sections, from the official firmware take 187 kilo bytes, leaving approximately 207 kilo bytes for all functionality, display fonts and also for all the on screen texts (which are in 15 different languages)

Note.

This is kilo bytes, not Mega bytes or Giga bytes as in modern mobile phones etc. So as you can see we are already squeezing a quart into a pint pot.
