This Technical Note is the 'Main Technical Note' for the set of Technical Notes that covers different aspects of CRC checksum calculations in these IAR Embedded Workbench toolchains.
...these versions of IAR Embedded Workbench (uses ELF/DWARF as file format in the toolchain). The Technical Note applies to:
In IAR toolchains with IAR ILINK Linker, the checksum calculation is done with a tool called IELFTOOL. So if a checksum is to be calculated, IAR ILINK Linker links the application, passes on (to IELFTOOL) the commands for filling and checksum calculation, and IELFTOOL does the calculation.
The details (of checksum) are placed in these sub-Technical Notes:
There is more information about the checksum in the .htm read-me-file for IAR ILINK Linker and in the .pdf DevelopmentGuide file. These files are found in your IAR Embedded Workbench installation.
