QUESTION

Is the Keil assembler a cross assembler? Does it create code that can be burned into an eprom?

ANSWER

Yes, the Keil assembler is a cross assembler. It creates an object file which you link using the linker. The linker creates an absolute object file (all addresses are fixed) which may be converted to an Intel HEX file using the Object-HEX converter. The Object-HEX converter creates an Intel HEX file which can then be burned into the eprom.

The Keil Assembler is called a cross assembler because it crosses platforms: it runs on a PC, but it creates code for a different target.
