Hello guyz!

I have a board similar to keil 1700mcb board. Among one of the examples I have a hex file that is 702Kb and I know that flash in my MCU is 512Kb. When I program the flash via J-link it programs successfully and the firmware is working just fine with all the routines. I want to ask where does the firmware get stored if the size of the firmware exceeds the size of flash. I have a 2MB SPI flash connected on the hardware. Perhaps the image gets stored there?
