srec_ti_txt — Texas Instruments ti-txt (MSP430) file format
The ti-TXT format is used by the Texas Instruments MSP430 familty programming adapter.
The TI-TXT hex format supports 16-bit hexadecimal data. It consists of one or more sections, followed by the end-of-file indicator.
Each section consistes of an at (@) sign followed a execution start address (in hexadecimal), and newline, and then data bytes (in hexadecimal). The section address is followed by a newline. There are to be 16 data bytes per line, except for the last line in a section.
The end-of-file indicator is the letter
q followed by a newline. The end-of-file indicator mandatory.
In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 3.0 times when represented with this format.
Here is an example ti-txt file taken from the reference below:
@F000 31 40 00 03 B2 40 80 5A 20 01 D2 D3 22 00 D2 E3 21 00 3F 40 E8 FD 1F 83 FE 23 F9 3F @FFFE 00 F0 q
