Wildcat 4.4 with HW2.81, Sys1.64, APP +A1 1.13, DFU 3.45C

Just received a new DSO203 with HW2.81, Sys1.64, APP +A1 1.13, DFU 3.45C and successfully installed Wildcat 4.4 (November 2015).

Here’s how (for Newbies as me - this is a summary from this forum, since the main thread became kind of long):

  1. Download Wildcat (see links below, recommendation from Wildcat’s author is the standard version)
  2. Unzip the file (and read User Guide)
  3. Connect DSO203 with PC (USB cable as shipped with the DSO203)
  4. Turn on DSO203 while pressing left button (labeled with “>II”), there will appear a 2MB DFU-drive in your windows file explorer
  5. Copy file “app1.hex” onto DFU-drive
  6. DSO203 will restart/reset and you will see a file “app1.rdy” on the DFU-drive
  7. you are all set - read the User Guide again and enjoy Wildcat 4.4
  8. think about calibrating at least the offset (see User Guide) and afterwards copying the *.WPT calibration files as config files (see User Guide) onto standard 8MB DSO203 drive (not DFU) to be able to store different configurations

Update Jan. 2016: When using Windows 10:
make sure to first start your DSO in DFU mode before connecting to your PC/laptop

At this point, if loading onto HW 2.81 I would recommend downloading V4.5 which has recently been posted on the community thread. I just acquired a device with HW 2.81 for testing, this new version fixes a few problems using the previous versions with this latest hardware. See the changelog in the post for more info.

Just updated successfully. Sorry for missing your update, I did not expect you to be that fast and only wanted to help others in return of the support I received. Wonderful job, the SW was already amazing and now even got better. Excellent job, Wildcat, and thank you very much again!

Shortcut to Wildcat 4.5

I always have to capitalize the firmware file in order to work -> APP1.HEX (using linux)

On Linux

sudo su - (better to use root)
mkdir -p /mnt/dso
mount /dev/sdb /mnt/dso  (my dso is on sdb)
cp APP1.HEX /mnt/dso/ (from your firmware dir)
ls /mnt/dso (repeat until file disappears from dso)
unmount /dev/dso

Power cycle your dso

Wildcat 5.0 is available:
seeedstudio.com/forum/viewto … 530#p22981
seeedstudio.com/forum/downlo … hp?id=2294
Needs the first 3 slots, so any additional programs will need to be loaded in slot 4, but
it also uses memory in the second half of the ROM area (viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2957&start=550#p23507).
Description how to install the 2 FPGA files (FPGA_281.ADR, 281_FPGA.BIN), before updating to WildcatV5.0 (app1.hex): viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2957&start=560#p24024

COMPATIBILITY (viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2957&start=540#p23115):
Hardware V2.6 and later (including the later 8Mb devices)
Sys V 1.51 and later
FPGA V2.61 and later
ALTERBIOS V 0.4 Should be installed on 2Mb devices to fix file corruption issues.
Note however that the revised FPGA is only for hardware V 2.81. Any functions that the new FPGA
provides will just not be available with earlier hardware, but the program will work properly otherwise.

And Wildcat is still getting better!

(for hardware older or younger than V2.81)

WildcatV6.0 (For HARDWARE V2.81 ONLY)
