Extended Range feature exists for 295, 310, 346 and 374 mm Touch Sensor Modules. Iti is automatically available in Firmware (FW) versions 2.0 and later. The only earlier FW version supporting Extended Range, Touch Sensor Module Firmware 1.55 - ER can be found on Neonode Download page. Note, that as of today the Extended Range feature is for Evaluation purposes only! The size increment of the Touch Active Area is documented in Mechanical Data.
Regardless of the FW, we recommend to use zForceProgrammer tool to load (flash) the FW on the Touch Sensor Module.
