I had a small query which I couldnt find a short answer in google.
for storing small amount of data ( say 8 bytes ) in an embedded system (containing an external Flash too), is it preferred to store in EXTERNAL FLASH instead of the controller's INFO MEMORY ( MSP430 in my case).
My query is not specific to MSP430, but in general.
I was told by my lead that INFO Memory is not reliable and External Flash should be used. I am not convienced.
I was hoping if there is any technical reasoning as to which memory is more reliable (considering that proper care is taken while writing to memory).
Thanks in advance.
