µVision creates several output files that can be configured in this dialog page. Refer to File Types for a list of output files.

Select Folder for Objects...
Select a folder where the object files are stored.
Name of Executable
Specify the name of the generated executable.
Create Executable
Generate an executable application program for your target hardware or for the Simulator.
Debug Information
Debug information are necessary for the symbolic testing of you application. If you disable this option, you will not have access to function names, variables names or the source code within the µVision debugger.
Browse Information
Browse Information is required for the integrated Source Browser and is used for quick navigation in the source files.
Merge32K Hexfile (only for 8051 target)
Changes the address order in the Intel HEX-386 file or banking applications. It allows you to generate directly the image for a target hardware with 32KB common area and multiple 32KB code banks. This Intel HEX-386 file contains the complete image of your application code in the follow address ranges:
  • 0x000000-0x007FFF: Common Area
  • 0x008000-0x00FFFF: Code Bank 0
  • 0x010000-0x017FFF: Code Bank 1
  • 0x018000-0x01FFFF: Code Bank 2
And so on. Typical, this file can be directly programmed into ROM devices for such a hardware.
Create HEX File
Allows you to create an Intel HEX file. HEX files are used to download the software into an PROM programmer or other utilities.
HEX Format
Specifies the HEX file format that will be generated. The required format depends on the size of your application program. Make sure that the PROM Programmer that you are using supports the selected format.
Create Library
Generate a library file. Libraries are program collections of object modules that the linker may process at a later time. You can use a library as part of other project files.
Create Batch File
µVision generates a batch file (*.BAT) that contains all commands of the build process. You may use this batch file to duplicate the build process without using the µVision IDE.
