AD6LOWPAN & CONTIKI OS


The EV-ADRN-WSN-1Z has only 128KB Flash and 16KB SDRAM. How much memory space does it require to run the Contiki OS and AD6Lopwan?

  • Hi Zahir,

    For more support on our WSN solutions, please post your questions in the respective communities (ADRadioNet or AD6LoWPAN).

    I request you to download the AD6LoWPAN package and go through the documentation for any useful information. For your convenience I am posting the information below.

    The EV-ADRN-WSN1Z platform supports 128kB Flash and 16 kB SRAM

    The AD6LoWPAN stack takes about ~25kB flash and 4kB SRAM. However, this complete WSN demonstration application with Contiki OS takes the solution foot print to ~34kB. 

    The following shows a brief foot print analysis for AD6L01_SLIM version (Complete AD6LoWPAN stack with basic application code) on EV-ADRN-WSN1Z platform.

    If user wanted to use SLIM version of the code, the space available for the application is around 98kB flash and 9 kB of SRAM.

    Following table shows the memory foot print of the ADuCRF101 based AD6LoWPAN solution with ADSensorApp integrated code on EV-ADRN-WSN-1Z platform. The ADSensorApp facilitates users to add different varieties of sensors easily. The sensor node with ADSensorApp takes ~52.2kB space.

    If user wanted to use AD6L01_6LN with ADSensorApp version of the code, the space available for the application is around 80kB flash and 9 kB of SRAM.
