Hi Ross,
Thanks for your response.

Now the RAM space looks enough.But we will reduce the RAM size in future.

You are right.I want to use the 'go flashadress' to start the application after redboot startup.And the application execute-in-place in flash.Only the dynamic data should  store in RAM.

Thank you all the same.
Does anyone have done this before?
