What's the Difference between I-TCM and D-TCM

Hi All,

    I have modified the scatter file and startup file, put all the Read-Only data, Read-Write data, Zero-Initial data on I-TCM, as you can see blow. And I found that my code was still running! The LED was still blinking!

    Now I'm a little bit confused about the difference between I-TCM and D-TCM. How would the performance of fetching the instruction on D-TCM change if I put all my code(Read-Only data) on D-TCM?

    By the way, I'm using the demo project "..\driver_examples\gpio\led_output" of RT1052 SDK for my testing.

    It seems like the application note <AN12077: Using the i.MX RT FlexRAM>  only shows the way of configuring the flexram.
