BeMicro SDK - maximum size of the supported microSD memory card ?

Hello, 

with the "BeMicro SDK" of 2011, 

which microSD cards fit with the on-board microSD memory card reader ? 

 

So whats the maximum capacity, concerning the file system ? 

Does the BeMicro SDK system support access to the microSD cards by the filesystem FAT16 or by FAT32 too ? 

 

Anthing else to consider ? 

 

As far as I know FAT16 means a limit to of 2 GB or 4 GB, as known from other systems ( e.g. digital cameras ). Whats the exact limit ? 

 

I won´t buy the wrong card, but I am willing to buy. Unfortuntely, my digital cam does not have this card type... so I can test with already owned cards. 

 

Sincerely 

Rolf

The interface itself, supports any SD cards available, so it is software question only. This means, that it is up to You, what FS support You can implement and use.

What software support is available by the SDK ( the software development kit, not the hardware )? 

 

so is there any file system support by the realtime os 

umicrum c/os-ii 

which is included with the sdk ? 

 

in fact, i "thought" that file storage must be simple, if this is a good software development kit... as simple as it is to communicate by ethernet ( see the webserver sample code ). 

 

sincerely 

rolf
