I've just added the path needed on a x64 OS (was missing the \Wow6432Node\), the installation file is the same as provided by Peter and the extra files, well... call it a bonus.

Go here for it: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/spectrum-analyzer-rigol-dsa815/msg2579409/#msg2579409

By the way all versions of the DSA815 from Hardware Board .04 - .08, and with Boot loader .02 through .04 (All versions - in spite of what you have read from Rigol) will use any of the newer, and latest firmware.   :-+

Hi,

Just a quck question, the link there mentions version 00.01.19.00.03
though the latest official version that I can find either in https://www.rigolna.com/firmware/ or https://int.rigol.com/SUPPORTS/software-firmware-download.html is version 00.01.19.00.02

Where this  .03  version has been found? is there any rigol fw download link that I miss?

Yes - 00.01.19.00.03 is the latest version, as 'Technix sys' pointed out in  https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/spectrum-analyzer-rigol-dsa815/msg2579409/#msg2579409  Re. DSA815 SSC-DSA/Signal Capture (SigCapture) Mode - DSA815 Firmware Update 00.01.19.00.03, 2019-03-25, corrected the SSC-DSA spelling of SigCapture (had been SigCpature).

Yes - 00.01.19.00.03 is the latest version, and no Rigol for some unknown reason other than incompetence doesn't have it available on their web site. As 'Technix sys' pointed out in  https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/spectrum-analyzer-rigol-dsa815/msg2579409/#msg2579409  Re.

Thanks Ted
Do you know how was it obtained? is there a new rigol download link? was it given by rigol tech department directly to someone (technix sys)?

Good evening everyone is new to the forum I have already had the pleasure of meeting marcopolo who kindly provided me with the filmware of the rigol dsa815 tg. Having never performed the update I would like to know from you if updating the filmware I enable the functions now disabled (swr emy etc.) and possibly what I need to do to enable them and then perform the change by joining pins 7 and 8. I currently have main board 00.04 freq board 00.04 filmware 00.01.05 of boat 00.01.02. kindly can you help me understand step by step what should I do Thanks Silvio

Since you're on BOOT 00.01.02 / FW 00.01.05 you need to update FW to 00.01.07 -> activate (ONLY) the missing options using online key generator -> continue to update to the latest version (incremental updates recommended)

I've got the first 4MB dumped and there is a string like SECRET12345678AAAABB in my hex editor.  Providing this key and the serial number to "rigup riglol DSA8XYZ... AAAE 12345678AAAABB" (0.4.2) doesn't seem to result in a valid code.  All lowercase, no dashes.

The rigup version for that is not public. Better use the method that Ted advised in the previous msg.

Thanks---I'll give it a try...  I'm assuming I can downgrade that far even though I have the .04 bootloader?

Original source for DSA700 Series and DSA815 Firmware 00.01.19.00.03 Update from Rigol. I then later provided it to a couple of other users well over 6 months ago due to Rigol still not releasing it.  Other than this, it has yet to be released for normal distribution by Rigol.  ? ? ?

I've been out of action for much of last year but now trying to catch up again, and having some fun with that....

My 815TG has Main Board Version - 00.08, RF Board FPGA Version - 00.05, Firmware Version - 00.01.13, Boot Loader Version - 00.01.04, and the soldered link to keep the trials running.
Trial versions are showing as AMK, EMI, and VSWR, with two entries for each of 33 and 36 hours remaining, yup guess I screwed up on that but don't ask me how:-)

So far so good, but the firmware is well out of date and I'd like to upgrade that to 1.19.03, which I've got, in order to activate the 10Hz RBW, but reading through the archives I'm not to sure what this will do to the trials. Some posts seem to suggest it will remove them, others that it has but then they returned, or perhaps I'm not reading it right, so would appreciate an update on what to expect if I just go for it.

Nigel, GM8PZR

Does the trial reset utility fix that?

Nigel, I’m pretty in the same situation as yours...old firmware and soldered link to keep, trials running.
I’m not sure if egonotto replied to you with a sad info, but I’d like to know it as well.
At least it would nice to know which could be the last firmware we can load without losing the "forever trial"....I’m sure there’s a bunch of people that did it before us, hopefully they’ll read this... ::)

Hi All,

Another guinea pig here with a DSA815-TG.

Version of Main board:                 00.09
Version of Radio Frequency Board FPGA: 00.05
Version of Digital Board FPGA:         00.05
Version of Firmware:                00.01.19
Version of Boot:                    00.01.04


Currently using "forever trial" mod which is giving me time trials for the following:
AMK-DSA800
EMI-DSA800
VSWR-DSA800

Lost this license somehow:
SSC-DSA  :-[

As far as I can tell, those with 1.04 boot are only able to use the "forever trial"?
Is there anything I can contribute perhaps?

I just did a upgrade to 01.19 firmware from 01.16.

I don't have a modified/opened DSA815 in any way. I had around 20 original hours left with a trial licences on old 01.16 firmware.

But now, after a upgrade, they are gone. 'N' and 0 hours left. I sent an email to info-europe at rigo.com..

Hope I'll get them back as a lot of others with 01.18 firmware upgrade. Now it's left on, and I will keep you posted in 20 hours.

HW version 00.09

Hello,

I bought used Rigol DSA815 without TG from ebay and it has still 8h and 40 mins trial left

Model: DSA815
mainboard: 00.09
radioFPGA: 00.05
digitalboardFPGA: 00.05
firmware: 00.01.18
boot: 00.01.04

gotroot serials will not work.

People said that I should connect pin 7 with 8, but I dont like it, because that means that all the store functions are not working after the mod, this is a big disadvantage of this mod.

I read that it will work on 1.08. Where can I get firmware 1.08? I get totaly confused when I am reading this long topic here.

Can someone make more clear steps here?

If you mean with the store functions, Setup, State etc., this also works with write protection on the FRAM. The settings are stored in the flash memory.

System Setups will not work, only user setup-files, that is a big disadvantage. I am also not sure if the self-calibration works. I have to live with this disadvantage because I am not willing to spend 500 Euro for the math option. This is more than 50% of the price that I paid for the whole instrument. Without this option the instrument is very crippled in my opinion.

I used the write protection on the FRAM myself for some time. I did not notice any errors. The self-calibration works, the calibration data are in the flash memory.
I only had problems with the SSC option, firmware 01.19 and write protection.

There are no errors, but you only can setup the instrument temporarily. All new system setups are gone after a reboot, you have the last state before the modification forever. Unfortunately the system setups (like network, usb etc.) are not stored in the user setup files.
