----------

14SEP2007 release

Created the DS10xx section.
Corrected I/O Pin Assignment and Pin Functions (EM1000) topic: pins 40-47 are NOT combined into P5, these are independent lines.

Corrected buffer size for non-programmable ("device server") firmware of EM120/EM200/EM202 modules (Comparison Chart for Ethernet-to-Serial Modules). Correct buffer size is 8KBytes in each direction.
"Setting up AuthKey Using DS Manager" -- corrected a small typo.

 

----------

06JULY2006 release

A whole new section has been added- EM1000 BASIC-programmable Ethernet Module.
These topics have been updated to reflect the fact that the product can work with "device server: firmware OR TiOS firmware (that executes BASIC application): EM120 Ethernet-to-Serial Module, EM200 Ethernet-to-Serial Module, EM202 Ethernet-to-Serial Module.
Corrected DTR Startup Mode (DS) setting description. It erroneously stated that this setting was not available on V3.5x branch of firmware, which is not true.
In the new firmware, line status changes are recognized much faster- it only takes 20ms instead of 0.5s. The following topics have been updated to reflect this change: Notification Bitmask (NB) setting, Notification (J) message, Handling of RTS, CTS, DTR, and DSR Signals.

 

----------

26JUNE2006 release

Corrected documentation error in Telnet TCP Programming topic. When Transport Protocol is TCP and Port Number is 23 telnet programming is impossible, as any TCP connection to port 23 will be interpreted as data connection. Previously, we have erroneously stated that in this case all connections to port 23 will be interpreted as programming, not data connections.

Firmware release V3.14/3.51 is now used as a "baseline" release and any feature or change that was made in a later firmware version is marked with the sign that looks like this: [V3.24/3.54+] (this one means: this feature is available in firmware release V3.24/3.54 or higher). This brings to an end tracking of changes from much older firmware V2.5x which was done previously. All references to V2.5x has been removed.
