Building a Program

When the building a program function starts, you may watch the progress in µVision's Command window. The created executable files are placed in an output folder, ready for downloading. The steps and progress are:

  1. Start the build

    Build Button Click on the Build toolbar button to generate your application program. µVision translates all your source files and links the project.

  2. Monitor progress

    The build activity progress (assembling, compiling, and linking) displays in the µVision's Command window. Any errors or warnings detected during the build process also display in this window.

    Output Window

  3. Program Files

    The build creates an Executable File in ELF Format in the Output folder you designated earlier. The ULINK USB-JTAG adapter requires this file for downloading to the MCB2300 board using the JTAG or other emulators.

    The build creates an Intel HEX file. The Flash Magic download utility requires this file for downloading via the serial port.

The program is now built and ready for test.
