Updating the module with latest sdk will be an overhead in our end product.
Hi There,Thank you for posting your question online. Yes, we highly recommend updating your FW into our latest FreeRTOS SDK v3.2.6.You can find the SDK v3.2.6 here:https://www.renesas.com/eu/en/document/sws/da16200-da16600-freertos-sdk-v3260?r=1600096You can find the pre-compiled SDK v3.2.6 images here: https://www.renesas.com/eu/en/document/sws/da16200-da16600-freertos-sdk-image-v3260?r=1600096Please follow the UM-WI-056 , chapter 4.5 Updating Firmware, page:16 on how you can update the SDK version on your DA16200 chip.Kind Regards,OV_Renesas
Thank you for the reply. Do we get the chip with the most recent SDK version, 3.2.6, already installed?It will be great if it's possible to purchase the chip in this way.
Hi There,Thank you for the reply. The SDK v3.2.6 released on 22/02/2023 so I do not think that they are going to be any boards with this FW installed. I would suggest contacting Sparkfun if you want to get a DA16200 Sparkfun board with the latest SDK version installed. Did you face any issues when trying to update your FW?Kind Regards,OV_Renesas
Only for development purposes, we are using the Sparkfun board. Is there a way to get the DA16200(chip) pre-loaded with the newest SDK version from Renesas? We are worried about production.
Hi There,I am afraid that even the DA16200 Evaluation Kit is pre-loaded with an older version of the SDK.Did you face any issues when trying to update your FW?Kind Regards,OV_Renesas
While updating the firmware in EVK, we are not facing any issues.
Only during the development phase we use EVKs. We won't use any EVK at a later stage of our device production phase; only DA16200 modules.
It will be a burden for us to upgrade a significant number of modules with the most recent firmware from the factory during this time. We worry more about the production of our device.
That is why we are requesting if Renesas can supply us DA16200 modules with latest firmware(SDK v3.2.6) so that we can easily incorporate them into our final product.
Hi There,Apologies for the delay.Unfortunately, we cannot provide the DA16200MOD with pre-loaded FW.I can refer you though on our Over the Air update feature.UM-WI-048 DA16200 DA16600 FreeRTOS OTA Update User Manual (renesas.com)You will not have to connect cables on each DA16200MOD in order to update their FW, you could use the OTA feature.Kind Regards,OV_Renesas
