Abstract

The following paper describes how configurable firmware for embedded controllers used in radio communication equipment can remove incompati- bilities between the fmware, the codeplug data lay- out and the RSS used for customer programming. In addition the amount of memory required for the firmware as well as for the codeplug is significantly reduced and version handling and system testing requires less effort.
