Expansion board 2.0 Cant upg firmware :S
I cant get this to work ... I want to start use my Expansion board 2.0
I did try this many times but I cant get it to work:
I fallow the step but still no luck at all...
Not sure what I doing wrong...
Should I have they expansion bord 2.0 just or should I add the lopy ? :S
That is correct, the
1.17.0.b1upgrade is for the LoPy. You do not need to
ever upgrade firmware for the expansion board 2
@seb So I when update it it says 1.17.0.b1 when I have my lopy on the expb2 does this mean that I dont need to do anything to the expb2? beside the firmware upg run on the lopy...
The expansion board 2 does not have a firmware in the same way the Pysense/Pytrack do. On the expansion board the USB to Serial conversion is handled by a dedicated FTDI usb to serial chip. On the pysense/pytrack a PIC microcontroller does this (plus more) and thus needs firmware.
@seb The lopy I have update using another board pysence/pytrack... Problem is that I try to upg the firmware in my ExpBoard2 and that wont work :S
Yes the lopy should be plugged into the expansion board if you want to update the firmware.
@seb I got same error, Should I have the lopy in the expb2?
Two things 1) make sure nothing else has the serial port open 2) make sure you connect the jumper then press the reset button, before running the update tool
I did upg it:
Windows* 2017-08-30 2.12.28 2.12.28 - - - - - WHQL Certified. Includes VCP and D2XX.
Available as a setup executable
Please read the Release Notes and Installation Guides.
This is what it says just... I got the jump wire at G23 and GND
@seb Okay.. thats what I was thinking was wrong :) I will try this
If you are using an expansion board you should not modify the drivers with zadig. This is only for the firmware upgrade of Pysense/pytrack. Can you please uninstall the drivers for this device then install FTDI drivers from: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm
