Splitting hex or srec files
Technical Note 35923
5/31/2018 9:14 AM
An application located for example in Internal Flash and External Flash could generate a massive binary if the start addresses are far apart, and if the ELF output is converted to (Intel) HEX or (Motorola) SREC formats.
- Split or modify the HEX/SREC files using the open source tool "SRecord".
- If the project consists of a bootloader and application, divide the project into two separate projects.
There are compelling reasons to NOT place your bootloader and application in the same project, one of them is discussed in Technical Note 27860.
