USBizi and the 96k

USBizi144 lists 96kb as its RAM.

Does this mean 96k for my application? Or 96k minus whatever the .NET runtime takes up? If its the latter, how much RAM is actually available to my app?


@ rgelb
Welcome to the community.

Please have a look at these two threads:

It is approximately 181K - [the total ROM amount]

Please look at product compsrasion on catalog.

Free ram was about 60k+ IIRC.

@ Gus, sorry, I totally forgot, I actually used USBizi with the Robot Kit. The available ram is about 35k or so.

Not correct, it is double what you said :slight_smile:


This is from the Robot Kit, which I am assuming has the same USBizi chip as sold in bulk. First line in program.cs, void main() is Debug.GC(false) with nothing instantiated as a module level variable. It states 38988 bytes available. Unless I am reading this wrong.

GC: 1msec 25392 bytes used, 38988 bytes available
Type 0F (STRING ): 216 bytes
Type 11 (CLASS ): 1968 bytes

The netmf heap size is 62k but then anything you load start using it.
