Hi I am working on a bootloader and an application code for a microcontroller. I have finished both and they generated two seperated hex files. I know I can cascade the application hex after the bootloader hex so that I have a single hex file and burn it into the microcontroller.
The ending part of the hex on the bootloader:
:10287C00000000000000000000000000000000004C :10288C00000000000000000000000000000000003C :10289C00000000000000000000000000000000002C :0400000300001CA934 :00000001FF
And on the application hex:
:10457C00A8080020A8080020B0080020B0080020DF :10458C00B8080020B8080020C0080020C00800208F :10459C00C8080020C8080020FFFFFFFF0000020031 :040000031000717DFB :00000001FF
When I cascade the two hex files, on the bootloader hex, I have tried to
1.)just remove the last line:
2.) or remove the last two lines:
I found both method works...I know the meanning of
is just "end of file" so I have to remove it. But what is the meaning of the second-to-last line?
