Customizing Dynamic Memory Management in C++

Ben Saks  (Chief Engineer, Saks & Associates)

Location: 107B

Date: Thursday, May 16

Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Track: ESC Boston, Track B: Embedded Software Design & Verification

Vault Recording: TBD

Using dynamically allocated memory can often save significant space over using statically allocated memory. However, many embedded programmers avoid using dynamically allocated memory in C++ because the built-in implementation of "new" doesn't meet their needs - it's often slow and non-deterministic, and runs the risk of fragmenting memory.

This session will teach you how to write your own versions of "new" and "delete" with characteristics suitable for use in embedded systems. It presents multiple forms of "new" and "delete" with detailed examples of how to replace them.
