Dear Valued Customer,

We are contacting you today to notify you that there is an Updated Linux Shipping Software for TS-7680.  Technologic Systems is committed to integrating bug fixes into our shipping products for better over all reliability.  This new software image has been available previously on our FTP servers and we will now be shipping it with all new orders.  This software release includes updates to the eMMC Flash memory interface and it is recommended that all customers with custom Linux builds incorporate these changes over the next several months

The affected products are: TS-7680

This Linux software release brings a few bug fixes and future bug prevention to the TS-7680.  The bug fixes include corrections to permissions as well as feature updates such as integrated support for the MMA8451 accelerometer, integrated support for FTDI and CP210x USB serial adapters,  and support for any future eMMC revision changes (which will come in the future).

For further details please refer to our software revision information in the product user guide:
https://wiki.embeddedarm.com/wiki/TS-7680#Software_Images

The eMMC device on the TS-7680 will eventually be no longer available.  Technologic Systems will at that time qualify a replacement device with a long anticipated lifecycle.  Due to how the eMMC devices identify themselves to Linux software, an update to the eMMC access software will be required, and with this software update will be 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-7680 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:

Please contact us if you have any concerns so that we can assist you with any transition issues.

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/updated-linux-shipping-software-for-ts-7680.
