When I started this project I selected Nuvoton's M054LDN for it. It has 16+4K FLASH what looked enough to me. I have an M0516LDN based development board in my hands, so I started to write the code on it. As the project advanced it become clear, that the code will not fit into the 16K. There is two factor behind it: the character table used for the graphic display, and the floating point library used by the PID controller.

But there is a problem. At the local reseller I just found the M054LDN and the M0516LAN and not the M0516LDN. This A instead of D means something here. It is the revision of the device. Together with other changes the rev D. has FIFO capability on the SPI interface what I'm extensively using for the display driver, and really don't want to throw it away.

So I looked around, and found what I needed on the AliExpress.

It arrived also this week:
