SYMPTOMS

When I build my project, the linker gives me:

FATAL ERROR L216: OUT OF MEMORY

My project is around 256k in size and I am using code banking.

CAUSE

You have reached a limitation in the BL51 linker.

RESOLUTION

This problem may be resolved by linking without including the debug information (Options -> BL51 Code Banking Linker -> Linking tab). However, you are then limited in your debugging capabilities.

The next version of the C51 tools does not have this limitation, and is able to link projects of this size successfully.

Contact our sales department with your serial number to obtain v4.00 of the BL51 linker which solves this problem.
