Hex File Formats This appendix describes the Intel hex object format and the TI-txt file format. The Intel hex object format supports 16-bit addresses and consists of a 9-character (4-field) prefix that defines the start of record, byte count, load address, record type, and a 2-character sumcheck suffix. The record types, which are represented in the 9-character prefix, are: 00 = Data record [begins with the colon (:) start character]. 01 = End-of-file record Record type 00, the data record, begins with the colon (:) start character and is followed by the byte count, the address of the first data byte, the record type (00), and the sumcheck. The sumcheck is the twos complement (in binary) of the preceding bytes in the record including the byte count, address, and data bytes. Record type 01, the end-of-file record, also begins with the colon (:) start character. The colon is followed by the byte count, the address, the record type (01), and the sumcheck. To represent an address bus of more than 16 bits, other record types are defined:
