5.1.1 What you can control with a scatter file

A scatter file gives you the ability to control where the linker places different parts of your image for your particular target.

You can control:

If the location of some code or data lies outside all the regions that are specified in your scatter file, the linker attempts to create a load and execution region to contain that code or data.

Note:

Multiple code and data sections cannot occupy the same area of memory, unless you place them in separate overlay regions.
