4.9.3. Dynamic Memory Allocation

Connext Micro allocates heap memory to create internal data-structures. It is important to know that Connext Micro manages memory allocated from the system heap using its own internal memory management, and only returns memory allocated from the system back to the system when something is deleted. That is, if an application never deletes anything, no memory is returned to the system.

As a rule of thumb, in Connext Micro the only APIs that allocate heap memory are:

And the only APIs that free memory are:

Connext Micro does not support dynamically allocating resources beyond the initial configuration. That is, all resource limits must be finite. This restriction may be removed in a future version.
