How to Export Serial Protocol Results to a Raw Binary File
The async serial analyzer in the Saleae software only supports one export option. That export mode creates a text file with comma-separated values that are intended to be easy to open with Excel.
If you would prefer to export a binary file whose contents are strictly the values decoded from the serial protocol analyzer, without timestamps or other metadata, that can be accomplished by using a utility to convert from the csv export format to a binary file.
