9S12DP256 Vs 9S12DP512

Started by Ravi Raj April 7, 2006
Hi,

I am using a 9S12DP256C for my application. As DP256 is going obsolete
soon, we are thinking of going to DP512. But I am not sure that I can
port the executable directly on 512 without rebuilding it. In other
words can DP512 be a drop in replacement for DP256 hardware and software
wise. Can anybody throw some light on this please?

Thanks in advance

Ravi

Ravi,

There are good chances the 9S12DP512 would work right away with a
9S12DP256C code without even having to recompile it.

Since these are still different silicons, there is some chance that it will
not work right away, and you will need to tweak the code a bit to make it
work on the DP512.

I'd say you have about 50/50 chance.

Hope this helps,
