Python library for Intel HEX files manipulations

Project description


The Intel HEX file format is widely used in microprocessors and microcontrollers area (embedded systems etc) as the de facto standard for representation of code to be programmed into microelectronic devices.

This work implements an intelhex Python library to read, write, create from scratch and manipulate data from Intel HEX file format.

The distribution package also includes several convenience Python scripts, including “classic” hex2bin and bin2hex converters and more, those based on the library itself. Check the docs to know more.


The code is distributed under BSD license, see LICENSE.txt.

In short: you can use IntelHex library in your project without any restrictions.

Supported Python versions

IntelHex library supports Python 3 (3.5 or later) only. The 2.2.1 release was the last one which has been checked against Python 2.7 and Python 3 until 3.5.
