Being new to PIC, I have been struggling to understand the information in the datasheet.
Q.1. : What does "256 bytes Linear Data Memory Addressing Memory" mean? I am looking at the PIC12LF1552. (datasheet:http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/40001674F.pdf).
My attempt: I landed in this post https://www.microchip.com/forums/m1028749.aspx. What I inferred was that Linear Data Memory Addressing Memory was the sum of all bytes of memory of the general-purpose register(s). But when I similarly calculate for PIC12LF1552 , from Page - 15 of the datasheet : 48+ 80+ 80 bytes = 208 bytes. I was expecting this to be 256 bytes. Please let me know what am I doing wrong here.
Q.2. Is "sram" and "Linear Data Memory Addressing Memory" the same thing? For e.g. for PIC16(L)F18326, datasheet (http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/devicedoc/40001839b.pdf) has sram as 2kb.
Q.3. If "sram" and "Linear Data Memory Addressing Memory" are the same where can I find a table similar to page - 15 of PIC12LF1552 for PIC16(L)F18326. The datasheet does not have it, or is there way to know which banks have implemented GPR's. How do I know the address of GPRs which I could get through the table which I will require if I want to store something in the Linear data memory through FSR registers.
The above things have been super confusing to me. Any clues would help.
Thank you very much
