Hi All,

I'm using the BF518f ez board evaluation kit - and I'm designing a custom board -

 

My application requires an external sram (not sdram because of very low power limitations).

 

1) Are there any recomendations / requirments / DO and Don't to that any one can give related to how to connect the sram to the DSP?

2) Will i have to do any special software configuration so the processor recognizes the new memory? - till now I have been working with the evaluation board and didn't really mess around with too many definitions.

 

I was thinking of using one of the Cypress srams:

and connect it like the sdram / or the flash on evaluation board.

 

3) Any special insights?

 

Thanks,

 

Chagai
