I've googled and dead-ended on this one, maybe someone in this group can help.
I have an original TDS210 digital scope with the original V1.0 firmware and the Communications module is V1.02. I have used other TDS210's with newer firmware and I want to upgrade my V1.0. I want to do this myself so does anybody know what is required to upgrade the firmware for this unit?
I have v1.17 - anyone know what the differences are? Bug frixes, enhancements?
I haven't opened mine - anyone looked inside? I would guess that the code is in a nice fat ROM or flash ... but there may be PLD updates or even circuit changes, so just changing the code might result in a frankenscope... Does Tektronix offer an upgrade kit?
The TDS210 service manual is available online (I found it with a bit of googling) - it may have notes about hardware differences of various versions.
How useful do you find the COMMS module?
PS: In case anyone isn't aware, early model TDS210s are subject to a safety related factory recall - check with Tektronix if you haven't already.
