Beta Releases

Neonode Touch Sensor Module Firmware 2.0-BETA1 Released Jul 02 2021

Neonode Touch Sensor Module Firmware 2.0-BETA1 should not be installed with the previously used Update Firmware tool, but rather the new zForce Programmer tool. 

zForce Programmer can be found here: zForce Programmer Downloads.

Evaluation Download

Touch Sensor Module - Firmware Update 1.53 Absolute Mouse 346mm Released Dec 18 2020
Touch Sensor Module - Firmware Update 1.55 Absolute Mouse 346mm Released Mar 30 2021

Evaluation Firmware Versions

The 1.53 and 1.55 release comes in an additional evaluation firmware version called Absolute Mouse.

This version is only to be used for evaluation purposes and should not be used in a live or production environment. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Neonode Support.

Absolute Mouse

The Absolute Mouse firmware version will make the operating system recognize the sensor as an absolute mouse device instead of a HID Touch Device.

This is mostly used for legacy systems or systems that do not have support for HID Touch Digitizer.

Installation
Installed using Firmware Update toolInstalled using zForce Programmer tool
ConfigurationChanging configuration

Using the Neonode Workbench tool (or any other software that uses ASN.1 for configuration) the configuration can be changed in runtime. This runtime configuration can not be saved to the Touch Sensor Module permanently. The Touch Sensor Module will always use the default configuration after reboot and after flashing a new firmware.

Using the Neonode Workbench tool (or any other software that uses ASN.1 for configuration) the configuration can be changed in runtime. This runtime configuration can not be saved to the Touch Sensor Module permanently. The Touch Sensor Module will always use the default configuration after reboot and after being re-flashed.

Using the zForce Programmer tool, the configuration can be changed permanently, and will then remain after a reboot.

Note however that the default configuration is always restored after flashing a new firmware.

CommunicationASN.1YesYes
