MPLAB-X Wrong Memory Size In Dashboard
MPLAB X IDE v5.05
After getting some of my projects ported over, I started playing around with some if the IDE features and quickly took a liking to the "Dashbord - Memory" section which gives nice visuals of memory usage (Data/Program).
The odd thing is, for my PIC24FJ64GB002 it shows:
Data 8,192 (0x2000) bytes
Data Used: 54.6%
Data Used: 4,472 (0x1178) Free: 3,720 (0xE88)
Program 21,756 (0x54FC) words
Program Used: 73.7%
Program Used: 16,041 (0x3EA9) Free: 5,715 (0x1653)
Looking at the datasheet this should have 64k(Program) and 8k(Data). Is this just omitting the "loaders" that are actually started prior to my application? If so, why on earth would they omit that information? It's still very useful to know.
