Dear Valued Customer,

We are contacting you today to to notify you of our plans to Update to the Preloaded Linux Image on TS-4900 from Technologic Systems.  There are several bugs in the existing image that this update will correct to improve the product.  The we do not expect application software to be significantly effected by this change, but custom applications may need to be recompiled to utilize all of the changes.

The affected products are: TS-4900, TS-TPC-8390-4900, TS-TPC-8950-4900

The new Linux image has a number of feature updates including an upgrade to Yocto's version Fido, driver support for additional UART/RS232/RS485 interfaces residing in the FPGA,  and better integration with our related i.MX6 products.  There are also a number of bug fixes provided including a correction for rare screen glitches on the TS-8390 which would cause all white, flipped, or half drawn screens; correct MAC address support for the second Ethernet port when paired with the TS-8390 and TS-8950; and corrects FPGA behavior when GPIO direction is set including the GPIO used to enable the WiFi.
