The core module contains 128MiB mobile DDR SDRAM.

1 Test in Redboot

We load a 60MB random file (generated on the PC) into the RAM two times and compare it. You need an established Ethernet connection.

RedBoot> load -r -b 0x100000 60MBrandomfile
Using default protocol (TFTP)
Raw file loaded 0x00100000-0x03cfffff, assumed entry at 0x00100000
RedBoot> load -r -b 0x3d00000 60MBrandomfile
Using default protocol (TFTP)
Raw file loaded 0x03d00000-0x078fffff, assumed entry at 0x03d00000
RedBoot> mcmp -s 0x100000 -d 0x3d00000 -l 0x3c00000
