Dependencies:   mbed

Update the firmware of your TD1208 or TD1204 modem

Load this program into the Nucleo board to allow for a serial update of the TD-module firmware. You can use the following tool to load the binary file for the Telecom Design modem: /media/uploads/quicksand/tdloader.exe (made by Telecom Design).

Step 1: program the Nucleo board

Import this program, compile and load it onto the Nucleo board.




Optionally: you can download the bin only /media/uploads/quicksand/bootloader.bin


Step 2: Check current firmware version

Open a serial terminal (like Putty) and check the current firmware version using the following command: AT&V



Hint: You can find the connected COM-port using device manager.



If the version doesn't match, then an update is needed. If the version is already up-to-date, no further actions are needed.

Step 3: Flash with TD Loader tool

Launch TDLoader.exe, fill in the COM-port, fill in the path to the binary and select the correct modem version (TD1204 or TD1208). Click on "Acquire" to begin the flashing. The software will first sync up with the modem and then start updating the firmware.





Once the upgrade is done, close the TD Loader software and press the reset button next to the Telecom Design modem.

Step 4: Reset the board using the reset button

Once the board has been reset, check if the firmware version now corresponds with the firmware you've just flashed.
