We have divided a new firmware into two parts : DS0201_APP_V2.21 and DS0201_LIB_V2.1_ss .

Burn the DS0201_LIB_V2.1_ss into the DSO first, and go on to download the DS0201_APP_V2.21 in the same way.

This version just a beta test , up to you to decide whether to upgrade the firmware .

If you choose to upgrade it , please feedback the issue that in your use . We do not guarantee that this version of the stability and other problems resulting.

What are the enhanced features in this version in comparison with v1.x firmware?

I'm eager to update my Nano but i want to know benefit/risk ratio. Specially if it can screw the Nano.

Thanks

There is not risk , you can restore to the older firmware any time.

The new firmware support using transparency to express the rate of change . The faster signal change the more transparent.

I have just upgraded mine, and it went without a hitch.

The display is much more like that of an analog scope, and is much more responsive.

Very nice!

I tryed it outdoor and is not good.
So I reloaded the v2.02
I would prefer to have an option to set on/off the transparency. ;)

bye,

While the transparency is a neat feature, and clearly tries to emulate an analog scope, I quickly downgraded to 2.02. If there were an option to turn it on and off, or even better an adjustment for how aggressive it is, I would keep the upgrade. I certainly hope that we won't be stuck with the current implementation of it as the versions move forward.

The transparency does not work well.
Can a copy of the original firmware be posted somewhere?

Yes, I also need the original firmware. I looked all over for it and have yet to find it posted anywhere online.

Thanks.

Hi.

attached is a full backup of my original firmware. But be carefull, it rewrites the bootloader/update thing also.
for me it works, but i can not guarantee that it works for you too. If anything goes wrong your DSO Nano could die and the only way to bring it back to life then is JTAG.

USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

...please feedback the issue that in your use.
- I see no improvement related to triggers. As for now - triggers are not working whatsoever (basic waveform synchronization only).
- A few pixels on the vertcal time window axis will flicker and/or become partially transparent (upper right/lower left).
- After using the DSO for a while (trying different options with active input) a few pixels will get stuck and a restart is needed to clear.
- The battery level indicator is unstable (flickering back and forth) at some levels and there appears to be a very short time for the final 70%.
- I don't like the transparency - it just makes the signal more difficult to view.
- Frequency calculation is unreliable (looking at AC mains frequency on a near perfect square wave jumps a full Hz between readings).
- When frequency is displayed, the "H" in "Hz" fickers an so does the "m" in delta time "mS" vertically below.
- The abbreviation "SIGN" doesn't make sense to me (do you mean "SINGle"?)

Why not work on fixing basic issues (triggers in particular) rather than "polishing" the user interface?
