The thread is here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/projects/ar488-arduino-based-gpib-adapter/

It enumerates as a USB serial port and uses mostly standard GPIB commands.

Were you find those firmware list? I'm looking if possible to update my TDS firmware to newer mine is 2.13 I see there a 2.16e.
You think is that possible? I guess there has not diffs between the version?

Hello Matt (madao),
Thank you very much for your tektool. Together with Ghidra it opens new possibilities for me to understand and hopefully repair old TDSxxx Scopes. I was able to repair a TDS644A and it seems to work 100 % o.k. but the self test fails due to the digACCalDiag test. The built-in frequency test range seems to be set too narrow. Either my firmware (3.8.5e), which I have copied from KO4BB is not good for my TDS644A or something in the file is corrupt. Could anyone in this forum provide a similar or even newer firmware for the TDS6xxA series?
Regards
Helmut, DL5HG

We shall reverse engineer the firmware yeah, apparently reading the extended service manual I got for the TDS540A they had a tool that described and allow to execute any of the diagnostics procedures tha the TDS520 repair manual suggest to run. I guess there is ay to write such a a program our self and finally allow to simplify the repairs of these scopes.

Can you provide the tools for Win98/95 so we can use with the official card suggest in the manuals that is the ISA National GPIB-PCII/IIA Card?
