CONFIG_NEWLIB_LIBC_ALIGNED_HEAP_SIZE

Newlib aligned heap size

Type: int

Help

If user mode is enabled, and MPU hardware has requirements that regions be sized to a power of two and aligned to their size, and user mode threads need to access this heap, then this is necessary to properly define an MPU region for the heap.

If this is left at 0, then remaining system RAM will be used for this area and it may not be possible to program it as an MPU region.
