HPSDRprogrammers Binaries for loading firmware

HPDSRprogrammer Binaries last updated: Sat May 28 11:10:06 UTC 2016

This program is used to load FPGA firmware on the Metis ethernet interface board or Hermes board. It will also program the Penelope, Pennylane, and Mercury boards as well, using the Metis board. The current firmware can be found below. You will find the Metis and Hermes documentation on the Document or Support webpages.

HPSDRProgrammer and HPSDRBootloader Software

These Programmers use the pcap Library. By license you must install this library yourself. For Window install Winpcap Library. The WinPcap now supports Windows 8.

For Linux simply install "libpcap" from the repository.:x

This programmer will work with all RBF firmware for HPSDR boards with an ethernet connector. No jumper setting required. It will reset the IP address as well, if Metis V2.5 or Hermes V2.3 RBF or greater is installed.

This is the program that works with all firmware and will function as a JTAG programmer for Mercury, Pennylane, and Penelope boards. This program will also reset IP address but requires the Metis J1 jumper set or the Hermes and Angelia J12 jumper set.
