Footprint analysis (RAM & ROM & MIPS)

Footprint analysis (RAM & ROM & MIPS)

Analysis of the expected memory consumption on RAM & ROM can be done quite early in the projects. Sometime this is very critical for CPU choise, other times its the MIPS usage that counts.

Here is a more advanced excel sheet I have been working on during the last 10 years - improving and improving ... Now been used in the last 4-5 companies I have been working in.

 

Open the excel sheet and look at it.

 

The advantages is that you can divide your MIPS requirements in various execution levels, priorities and so.

Another advantages is that you quite early in the process get ideas about the final products demands. You can constantly update and improve the values as the project executes...

In one comapny we played poker cards (guessing the various functions nature, demands and so) , hence got a quite good estimate ... just looking at the top 5.
