Observe that reading and creating 1 Mbyte files results in lower bandwidths than for reading and creating 16 Kbyte files.
The normal PC display capacity for ASCII characters is 2 Kbytes. Every byte in the display buffer is linked to a character in the display memory.
How many kbytes or Mbytes will each of your terminals transmit and receive on a monthly basis?
* Ultra-fast data transfers, with a 7-layer multi-AHB bus matrix and multi-DMA controllers, which allow concurrent execution and data transfers; * The integrated single-precision FPU boosts the execution of control algorithms, adds more features to applications, improves code efficiency, reduces time-to-market, eliminates scaling and saturation, and allows the use of meta-language tools; * High integration, with up to 1 Mbyte of on-chip Flash memory, 192 Kbytes of SRAM, reset circuit, internal RCs, PLLs, sub 1microAmp real-time clock with sub-second accuracy; * Extra flexibility to reduce power consumption in applications requiring both high processing power and low-power performance when running at low voltage or on rechargeable batteries.

The R256 features fully programmable ramps and speeds, software selectable hold and move currents, and the ability to store up to 16 different programs at once with the built-in 4 kBytes of memory.
Usually maximum data rates are seen with sequential data streams that are either entirely Read or entirely Write operations, and have data block sizes of 64 KBytes or larger.
All sectors (64 kbytes) and pages (256 bytes) can be erased independently.
Up to 256 Kbytes of flash EPROM is available for firmware, with up to 256kbytes of on-board RAM to speed software execution.
Back-to-back transmission with minimal interface latency is facilitated with 3 Kbytes of transmit and 3 Kbytes of receive FIFO for each port.
The processor has flash memory to 512 Kbytes, RAM to 256 Kbytes and EEPROM to 8 Kbytes.
