Overview

This SW in no longer in use. It has been replaced by the new CAENUpgrader software tool
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
