It informs you that your file will not be fully programmed into the FLASH memory.

You can check the FLASH.List and sYmbol.List.MAP windows, then you can see that these bytes are discarded because of the NOP protection.

Notes:

  • Sensitive FLASH sectors are declared as NOP sectors to protect them from unintended overwrite.
  • FLASH.CHANGETYPE command can be used if you would like to program a sensitive sector.
  • For more details, you should refer to the norflash.pdf manual.
