Difference in ending of .bin files

i have been working on an application which allows me to flash a binary file into the MCU memory and thus

updating the firmware application.


When i flash the .bin file using my app i am able to transfer the file but its ending is different from

the one flashed by the "stm32CubeProgrammer" as shown in the attached snapshot. please note that

besides the ending all other bytes are the same.

i am working with the stm32f7 on IAR embedded workbench version 8.11, the .bin file is created

the IDE's output converter.


What's the meaning of this file ending? is this some sort of checksum? am i doing something wrong?

please advise.
