QUESTION

I am running the TCP/IP stack on the Atmel AT91SAM7X device and I need to minimize the RAM occupation of TCP/IP stack. Can we do this by changing the header files?

The traffic in our TCP/IP network will be quite low, therefore I would like to reduce the RAM requirements as much as possible.

ANSWER

Yes. It is possible to reduce the RAM footprint by changing the definitions in the files AT91_EMAC.H and Net_Config.C.
