srec_ti_txt — Texas Instruments ti‐txt (MSP430) file format

Description

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.

Size Multiplier

In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 3.0 times when represented with this format.

Example
