TD-XPAH Standalone Mode

Standalone System

When configured for standalone mode the TD-XPAH boots from flash memory and runs as a standalone system.

Standalone mode is configured via on-board DIP switches set to the following settings.

Standalone Firmware

In order to run in standalone mode the device must first be updated by downloading the standalone mode firmware to flash memory. All TD-XPAH devices are tested both in standalone mode and host mode before they are shipped to you. If you want to run the TD_XPAH in standalone mode without updating the firmware, simply confirm that the DIP switches are set to the standalone mode settings and reboot your device.

The latest standlone mode firmware can be found on the Teledatics github repository here. Your TD-XPAH was updated with the latest standalone mode firmware available at time of shipping. If you wish to update the firmware, you will need to download a new standalone mode binary to the device.

Downloading Firmware

Firmware is downloaded to the TD-XPAH via the Newracom Firmware Flash Tool. The flash tool is written in Java and can be run on Windows, Linux, or MacOS.

To run the tool on Windows simply double click on the flash tool.

To run the tool on Linux or MacOS run the following command from the command line

java -jar ./FirmwareFlashTool.exe

Make sure the DIP switch settings on your TD-XPAH are set to download mode.

The flash tool updates three different binaries when it flashes the device.

These binaries are:

The flash tool must be set to use the last TD-XPAH serial device mapped by the FTDI USB-serial driver. On Linux systems this device is /dev/ttyUSB3.

Please check the Control Panel or System tools on Windows or MacOS to find the last TD-XPAH serial device for your system. Set the flash download tool to use this device in the upper right hand corner.

Note that the TD-XPAH is a 2 MB flash device. This is the default flash tool setting and should not be changed.
