CC2533: will 'F64 code image run unmodified on 'F96?

Part Number: CC2533
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: REMOTI

Due to ongoing supply chain shortages, customer is considering using the CC2533F96 in place of their usual CC2533F64.  They'd like to just shotgun the 'F64 code into the 'F96 device.

Any issues with doing so?

Thanks!

  • Hey Steve,

    Assuming that they are using the RemoTI library, please be aware of the following information from the RemoTI and RCN API Guides:

    The library files are, then, available in the form of near code model and banked code model. Near code model cannot exceed 64-KB of address space for the code space and hence is only for CC253xF64 or for any other product that only utilizes 64-KB of space for executable code.

    The RemoTI Sample Application Guide also mentions non-banked versus banked code, and there are F64- and F96-specific hex images and project configurations to locate the proper source and linker files.  Based on the Memory Maps, the Non-volatile data pages are located in different areas which will definitely affect operation.  In summary, the customer cannot use F64 code on the F96 variant and they will need to re-compile their project accordingly.

    Regards,
    Ryan
