Dear Valued Customer,
We are contacting you today to notify you of the TS-7970 Board Revision Change from Rev D to Rev E. Technologic Systems is preparing the TS-7970 for release from our engineering sampling program and made a few minor changes to the layout to better accommodate our production testing environment. The changes from Rev D to Rev E should no impact on customer applications. The TS-7970 Rev E will be our final production revision, and will begin shipping over the next several weeks as the TS-7970 Rev D systems are used up. There is a minor update to the U-Boot image shipping with the Rev E to designate the Rev E board, but this change should have no impact on customer applications.
The affected products are: TS-7970
The TS-7970 Rev E was made to update the factory programming interface used to load the initial software on to newly built hardware. Minor changes were also made to improve the over all factory test coverage. None of these changes should have any impact upon customer applications. The camera interface announced with the Rev D version of the hardware has also been discontinued by the Rev E solution, the software drivers for the Camera interface did not work out as we intended. If you have need for cameras in your application please contact us and we would be happy to work on a custom solution for your applications. The U-Boot shipping with the TS-7970 Rev E has also been updated so that the software correctly reflects the Rev E hardware. For additional details please refer to:
As the TS-7970 Rev E changes have no impact on customer applications we will continue shipping Rev D hardware until we have used up all of the Rev D units. If you have a pressing need to receive a few advance TS-7970 Rev E units please contact us.
Technologic Systems appreciates your business. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact us by either replying to this email or filling out the contact us form at https://pcs.embeddedarm.com/notices/ts-7970-board-revision-change-from-rev-d-to-rev-e.
