The part only has 6KB of RAM, need to make some determination where your code is using it, for things like stack and heap, and perhaps shrink some of the global allocations if you aren't using them.

This is hard to debug remotely. You can perhaps modify the linkers script to indicate it has more RAM so you can get closure from the linker, and inspect the .MAP file to see where you're using it in a successful build.

But you need to understand YOUR CODE, and where and how you're using the finite resources you have in the chip you've chosen.
