QUESTION

I use the RealView Compiler supplied with MDK-ARM, but I cannot load the output file to my emulator. What is the output file format  of the executable image that is generated by this compiler?

ANSWER

In MDK-ARM Version 3.00 and Version 2.50, the RealView Compiler creates an encrypted executable image that can be only loaded by the µVision Debugger. This is also the output format of the Evaluation Version.

When you have entered a valid license for MDK-ARM Version 3.01 or higher, the RealView Compiler creates standard ELF/DWARF files for the executable image. ELF/DWARF files can be directly loaded by all popular emulators and several other thrid-party utilities.
