Hello all. I searched and searched for an opensource iic file generator; has anyone found such a tool. I prefer to not have to use windows in order to create an iic file.
Please clarify what you expect this program to do. Do you need a burn a bin file into an iic EPROM?
I am using a Cypress FX2 micro. I want a program that converts an intel hex file into a binary format that can be loaded into an iic EPROM. The current process is as follows. Using SDCC I compile the code and an intel hex file is output. Then I use Cypress' HEX2BIX tool which creates an iic file. Using objcpy doesn't create the file in the proper format. Is there any open source tool that replaces the HEX2BIX tool?
Cypress has put the hex2bix source code in the Development Kit. Maybe you can recompile it. As it is a command line tool I doubt it uses many windows specific libraries if any.
The license seems to indicate you may do so as long as you keep their license with it.
Thanks for the help MaartenBrock; I feel really silly. I went and reverse engineered the conversion for nothing. I wish I had posted here sooner, so that I could get back those 4 hours of my life. :)
