Types of simple image

The types of simple image the linker can create depends on how the output sections are arranged within load and execution regions.

The types are:

Type 1

One region in load view, four contiguous regions in execution view. Use the --ro_base option to create this type of image.

Type 2

One region in load view, four non-contiguous regions in execution view. Use the --ro_base and --rw_base options to create this type of image.

Type 3

Two regions in load view, four non-contiguous regions in execution view. Use the --ro_base, --rw_base, and --split options to create this type of image.

However, you can also use the --rosplit option for a Type 3 image. This option splits the default load region into two RO output sections, one for code and one for data.

You can also use the --zi_base command-line option to specify the base address of a ZI execution region for Type 1 and Type 2 images. This option is ignored if you also use the --split command-line option that is required for Type 3 images.

You can also create simple images with scatter files.
