ROM HEX file format for DSP Platforms (TMS320C6713)

Started by William C Bonner February 9, 2008
Is there a particular file format that is normally used for program
files written to flash to boot a DSP?

I'm assuming that a COFF file isn't simply converted to an Intel HEX
format and transferred, but that some relocation points are taken care
of and code is moved around.

Does it vary by who builds the platform?

I've written a couple of programs that can combine multiple Intel hex
files into a single hex file, interpreting the records and making sure
that they were not originally overlapping, but I'd like to have my own
program convert the files directly from COFF .out files to HEX if I know
the correct format once the data is in flash.

Thanks.. Wim.
