Title: RIGOL DSA815TG firmware upgrade
Post by: Robbydot on December 04, 2015, 04:05:40 am
Hi Group,
Apologies in advance as I know this subject has been greatly discussed in the past .....  I have researched the threads and I am after some confirmation regarding the bootloader versus firmware issue for the DSA815TG.
I have an older Rigol DSA815TG  ( built around 11/1/2013 ) with the 00.01.02 version of the boot loader.
At the moment I am running 00.01.07 version of the firmware which I upgraded early last year from version 00.01.05.
Main board version is 00.04
Digital board FPGA is 00.05
All options installed as well.
From what I have read I should be able to upgrade to the new 00.01.15 firmware without losing any of the options ? The problem I believe is if the bootloader is version 00.01.04 or later, this is what causes issues...
Am I correct ? I would hate to lose the options for a few gains in the operation,
Thanks for your help everyone, any thoughts would be appreciated,
Cheers,
Rob.

Hi Rob,

From my understanding from reading the threads you will not lose any of your installed options by upgrading to the new firmware.

Hello again everyone,
Just for some information I got the firmware up to ver 14 without problems..  Ver 15 made the speccy throw an "I.F." error so I rolled back to 14 and everything seems to be working fine,
Cheers Everyone,
Rob.

Good morning I am Silvio Iafolla I have in my possession a rigol dsa815tg analyzer purchased from you a few years ago if possible I would like the updated 00.01.17 filmware as on the official rigol site I find only 00.01.19 that supports a main board 00.05 mine has the main board 00.04. I would like to try disabled functions such as swr etc. could you send me a copy of the filmware or tell me where I can download them? Waiting for your reply distinctly greeting Silvio Iafolla I pessato at 01.01.17 but if you give me some advice I would be very grateful because I never did thanks
