Firmware Updates

ControlDesk provides firmware update and restore capabilities. After registering your hardware, open the Platforms/Devices tab, right-click your hardware, select Update Firmware from the context menu, and follow the dialogue.

SCALEXIO and MicroAutoBox III can also be updated and restored with ConfigurationDesk.

Alternatively, you can use Firmware Manager to update or restore the firmware of your dSPACE hardware.

The instructions on this site do not apply to RapidPro and Solution-specific hardware. In that case refer to the provided documentation.
