The async serial analyzer in the Saleae software only supports one export option. This export mode creates a text file with comma separated values that is intended to be easy to open with excel.
If you would prefer to export a binary file, who's contents are strictly the values decoded from the serial protocol analyzer, without timestamps or other metadata, this can be accomplished by using a utility to convert from the csv export format to a binary file.
