       srec_needham - Needham EMP‐series programmer ASCII file format


       This   format   is   understood  by  Needham  Electronics'  EMP‐series  programmers.   See for more information.  (This format is  very  similar  to  the
       ASCII‐Hex format, but without the ^B and ^C guard characters.)

       Each data byte is represented as 2 hexadecimal characters, and is separated by white space
       from all other data bytes.

       The address for data bytes is set by using a sequence of $Annnn, characters, where nnnn is
       the  8‐character ascii representation of the address.  The comma is required.  There is no
       need for an address record unless there are gaps.  Implicitly, the file starts a address 0
       if no address is set before the first data byte.

   Size Multiplier
       In  general,  binary data will expand in sized by approximately 3.0 times when represented
       with this format.


       Here is an example ascii‐hex file.  It contains the data “Hello, World[rq] to be loaded at
       address 0x1000.
