* These are Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable devices and their function depends on the loaded app.
We offer many ready-to-use apps, among them a serial-over-IP (SoI) app and Modbus Gateway app.

Firmware for Serial-over-IP (SoI) Devices

SoI binaries for our programmable devices

The firmware files below comprise the compiled Serial-over-IP Tibbo BASIC application, combined with TiOS firmware and ready to run.

Firmware for EM120, EM200, EM203(A), DS203(A)

There are two firmware builds — "R" and "D". Choose the right file depending on your device's model number.

Firmware for EM100, DS100

The firmware below is for the following devices:

  • EM100-03/-04,
  • DS100R-03/-04,
  • DS100B-00/-01/-02

Choose the SN build if you are performing an upgrade through the serial port, and the S build if you're upgrading through the network.

Older devices: Tibbo no longer releases firmware upgrades for the EM100-00/-01/-02, or the DS100-00/-01/-02.

Tibbo OS (TiOS) Firmware

Monitor/Loader (M/L) Update for EM2000, TPP2(G2), and TPP3(G2) devices

When equipped with the WA2000 Wi-Fi/BLE add-on, our EM2000, TPP2(G2), and TPP3(G2) now support over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates. This will only work if your EM2000, TPP2(G2), or TPP3(G2) is running the M/L V3.00B (or a later version).

Here is how you can check your M/L version and update the M/L if needed.

  • .BIN files: Use the Device Explorer utility (a part of our Tibbo IDE (TIDE) software) to update your Tibbo device using .BIN files. Updates can be performed via the Ethernet or UART of your Tibbo device.
  • .TCU files: Use the Tibbo Updater app to update your WA2000-equipped Tibbo device via the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) interface of the WA2000. These files update not just TiOS, but also the firmware of the WA2000 Wi-Fi/BLE add-on module.

Linux TPS (LTPS) Files

LTPS Firmware Images and Updates

Files listed below are packed all-in-one images: bootloader plus OS file system. During the production, these files are used as initial firmware image files. The image size is from 200~300MB.

The primary posting area for these files is the LTPS Firmware Images and Updates area in the LTPS File Collection Zone*. We recommend you to periodically check this location for the latest updates.

* More on this in the Firmware Updates section of the LTPS User Guide.

Cross-Platform Development Tools for LTPS

This file is an installation script. It is designed for Linux i586 hosts only. It contains a full set of cross-development tools, such as gcc, make, node, npm, development libs and headers, etc.

The installation of this script does not require root credentials. The script runs on any modern Linux distributions.

LTPS SDK for Linux Host

The primary posting area for these files is the LTPS Firmware Images and Updates area in the LTPS File Collection Zone*. We recommend you to periodically check this location for the latest updates.

Virtual Serial Port Driver for Linux (VSPDL)

VSPDL is distributed as a gzipped TAR archive and RPM package. System requirements and the installation procedure can be found here.

VSPDL

This release was tested in CentOS 6.3, Mandriva 2011, OpenSuse 12.1, OpenSuse 12.2, Debian 6.0.6, Ubuntu 12.04, and Mageia 4.5.

Note: you don't need x86_64 for now, it is binary-compatible.

TiOS Monitor/Loader Update

Our ARM-based Tibbo BASIC/C-programmable devices — EM2000, EM2001, TPP2(G2), and TPP3(G2) — support over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates*.

Two things are required for OTA updates to work:

  • Your device (EM2000, EM2001, TPP2(G2), or TPP3(G2)) must be equipped with the WA2000 Wi-Fi/BLE add-on module;
  • Your device must have the Monitor/Loader V3.00B (or a later version)**.

The Monitor/Loader (M/L) is a resident firmware that is present on all Tibbo devices. The M/L V3.00B added support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) OTA firmware updates. Many EM2000, TPP2(G2), and TPP3(G2) devices in the field were shipped prior to the release of the M/L V3.00B. To enjoy OTA firmware updates, you will need to update the M/L of your ARM-based Tibbo device as described below.

* OTA firmware update procedure is described in our TIDE, TiOS, Tibbo BASIC and Tibbo C Manual.
** "B" indicates that the M/L is BLE-enabled.

Checking the current version of your Monitor/Loader

  • Power up your device while keeping the MD button pressed — this will boot your device into the M/L.
  • Release the MD button.
  • Make sure the Ethernet cable is plugged in and the yellow Link LED has turned on.
  • Launch the Device Explorer (it is a part of Tibbo IDE software).
  • Check the current M/L version of your device. If it isn't at least V3.00B then the M/L is in need of an upgrade.

Upgrading the Monitor/Loader

  • In the Device Explorer, choose Upload, then Load Firmware Through the Network to upload a M/L upgrade app into your EM2000, TPP2(G2), or TPP3(G2):
  • After the file upload completes, your device will reboot and start executing this file.
  • Wait until the green status LED is turned on. This will indicate that the upgrader app is ready to update the M/L.
  • Press the MD button (pull the MD line low) — red and green status LEDs will turn on. The upgrade has begun!
  • Once the upgrade completes the device will reboot.
  • You can now verify that your device's M/L version shows as V3.00B (you may need to hit Refresh to rescan the network).
