Huge binary file
Technical Note 27860
3/27/2020 10:36 AM
Sometimes the binary output file is huge. This is often the case when const data is placed at specified addresses or when code is placed in external memories.
The reason is that the binary output format has no support for holes so every address in the range must be given a value.
As a workaround, with the ILINK linker it is possible to create multiple raw binary files with the --bin-multi linker option.
This situation is related to Technical Note 35923.
