About the format of generated bin/hex file

Hi, thanks for this fabulous project. I am new to Edge Impulse and just follow Continuous motion recognition to compile the firmware for nrf52840.

I notice that the generated nrf52840-dk.bin is of format Apple DiskCopy 4.2 image. I am wondering why this format is used and is there any way to extract the application binary (e.g., classifier) from the bin.

Thank you in advance!

Hi ruoyu,

I think that is just apple’s guess at what the .bin is used for. The actual binary file is just the raw bits to be loaded into the nrf52840’s flash memory to run our pre-compiled firmware
