CAENBridgeUpgrade is a console application for firmware upgrade of supported CAEN VME Bridges. New firmware releases can be uploaded to the board non-volatile (flash) memory.
CAENBridgeUpgrade basically reads firmware image from a binary input file (Altera Raw Binary File format) and writes it to proper locations in the target board flash device.
CAENBridgeUpgrade uses the following channels of communication:
- PC => USB => V1718 / VX1718
- PC => PCI => A2818
- PC => PCI (A2818) => Optical Link => V2718 / VX2718
- PC => PCIe=> A3818
- PC => PCIe(A3818) => Optical Link => V2718 / VX2718
