Flash

The standard VM2 is supplied with two on-board flash memories. The first (512KB) is built in the the microcontroller IC, and the second (8MB) is a stand-alone memory IC.

The smaller flash is very fast and is used to hold the Venom language and operating system.

The larger flash is used to hold your finished application code and a 7 MByte flash file system.

Your application code is developed in non-volatile RAM, but when you have finalised it you should 'Protect' it in the application area of the flash so it is secure from accidental loss.

You can re-program either of the flash memories to change your application or to update Venom.
