Should little endian or big endian be selected?

Latest Updated:01/23/2014

Question:

Should little endian or big endian be selected? What is the difference between little endian and big endian?

Answer:

Either big or little endian can be selected. Although RX CPU instructions are little endian, it doesn't matter in particular as long as the setting of the RX microcontroller's mode pin (MD) matches the endian setting when compiling. However, the arrangement of data differs between little and big endian.
