heap_1.c large code size in CodeWarrior proj

Posted by SimFr on September 22, 2008

I am using CodeWarriorIDE 5.9.0 for a port of FreeRTOS to the MPC5516 from Freescale.

CodeWarrior tells me that heap_1.c has a code size of 124 Byte and a data size of 81948 Byte. As I would like to run my port in the SRAM which has a size of 64 kByte, I would like to know, if I did something wrong, which caused heap_1.c has such a large data size?

Is it realistic to get FreeRTOS run in a 64 kByte SRAM? I only run three (test-)task. Every task toggles one LED after a specific time.

I am quite new in FreeRTOS. So in case, sorry for the trivial question.

Thanks and bye,
