What is a scatter file?
A Scatter File is a .txt file that is used to identify a wide number of regions in an Android system that uses MediaTek’s ARM architecture. Such files are usually needed when flashing the firmware with tools like the SP Flash Tool.
“In computer science, a scatter file is a data file that is used to load and relocate executable code and data for an application program or operating system. A scatter file is typically used by an embedded system that uses a microprocessor or microcontroller. The scatter file contains a list of memory regions and the addresses where the code and data for the application program or operating system should be loaded.”
Why we need scatter files?
Because there’s a memory access technology on the market that makes some bold claims, it sounds like magic if you delete just the top-level messaging. And as you consider it more, you begin to squint your eyes and wonder aloud, “How is that even possible?”
The technology is known as “scatter,” and my aim was to find out exactly what that means and what to expect while using it – particularly the promise of “single-cycle access.”
