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
