Need to add more[edit]

Need to add more to the SREC file format description here anyone have any comments? JBadger169 (talk) 14:23, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I added some more content, axed the duplicate S19 page, and rewrote some stuff. Also, I removed the link to Altera. This article could have a list of embedded software packages that offer S-record support, but it would be a long list. I think this is turning into a nice little article on an arcane subject. There are some remaining issues with this article that I haven't addressed yet. Both the record description and the example are copied directly from the man page. I think those need to be replaced with original content, but I am not an expert on licensing. -Wronkiew (talk) 06:45, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

‘banked’ S-Record format.[edit]

There should be notes on the new banked s-record format. This is where A S2 record the upper 8 bits has the PPAGE address and the lower 16 bits has the word address.--JBadger169 (talk) 14:04, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Please list which companies support it and point to a specification or documentation. • SbmeirowTalk • 12:05, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Usage of SREC?[edit]

"[SREC] is used by software development tools to encode binary data, especially executable code, for embedded processors."

Exactly where in the development process is SREC used? The embedded systems I came in contact with yet work on "true" binary files. --Abdull (talk) 19:44, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

E.g. for the real time operating system QNX, boot images can be built in the SREC format. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:28, 14 December 2010 (UTC)
