3.4. bin2flash

The bin2flash utility converts an arbitrary file to an S-record file suitable for use by the flash programmer. You can use bin2flash to convert read-only binary data needed by a Nios® II program, such as software configuration tables.

Depending on your application, you might find it more convenient to use the Intel FPGA Read-Only Zip Filing System, which serves the same purpose.

Note: Do not use bin2flash to convert executable software files or FPGA configuration files. To convert Nios® II software executable files, use elf2flash. To convert FPGA configuration files, use sof2flash.
