Dear Valued Customer,

We are contacting you today to notify you of New eMMC Flashes Qualified on TS-7400-V2 & TS-7670 with Updated Shipping Software.  The eMMC flash devices used on the TS-7400-V2 & TS-7670 went EOL and have been replaced with new sources.  Technologic Systems strives to find replacement memories that do not require software changes but in this case it was not possible.  This change will take effect on all future shipments of our product that you receive.  Please read below for details on how to determine if your software needs to be updated, and instructions for updating your software. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

The affected products are: TS-7400-V2, TS-7670

The eMMC devices the TS-7670 and TS-7400-V2 systems were designed with are no longer available.  Technologic Systems has been able to qualify a replacement device with a long anticipated lifecycle.  Due to a change in how the new devices identify themselves to Linux software, an update to the eMMC access software has been loaded into the image provided on the SD cards and on board flash by Technologic Systems.  All new cards and systems will be sent with the correct software preloaded.  

For all customers who use the image preprogramed on the TS-7670 and TS-7400-V2 by Technologic Systems as is, no changes will be required. Just load your application code as usual on the new boards that you receive.

For any customers who build their own image to be loaded on the on board flash, please re-build your image using the files and information located at the following path:
