System requirements

Installation and user manuals, tutorials and tips

USB-microDig

  • For correct operation, please make sure your digitizer's identifying numbers are correctly stored in the digitizer. Connect (v1.5 or higher) will advise you if the numbers are incorrect, and allow you to update them. You can also use Reset_myDig (MacOS 64bit / Windows 64bit, MacOS 32bit / Windows 32bit) to restore these numbers as per the label on the bottom of the digitizer.
  • Before upgrading, disconnect other USB-microDigs and Wi-microDigs and close all other I-CubeX software, including Connect, as well as any other software that may use your serial ports.
  • Throughout the upgrade process for a USB-microDig use the same USB port to connect the USB-microDig to the computer.
  • On MacOS the serial port to use will be named "SLAB_USBtoUART ... ", on Windows it will be named "COM3" or similar.
  • On Windows, disconnected Bluetooth serial ports will result in delayed software performance. Please remove any disconnected Bluetooth serial ports.
  • Use EditorX v7.5x to access and configure the features enabled by firmware v7.5x.
  • Use EditorX v7.3x to access and configure the features enabled by firmware v7.3x.
  • Use EditorX v7.2x to access and configure the features enabled by firmware v7.2.
  • It is not possible to upgrade from firmware v7.3 (or lower) to v7.5 or downgrade from v7.5 to v7.3 (or lower) because firmware v7.5 requires a digitizer with hardware v7.5, which cannot run firmware v7.3 or lower.
  • If after upgrading to firmware v7.3 or v7.2 you need to downgrade to firmware v7.2 or v7.1 use FirmwareX v7.2x or v7.1x. Then use EditorX v7.2 or v7.1x to configure the USB-microDig.
  • This upgrade is fully guaranteed. If after performing the upgrade with FirmwareX your USB-microDig still has the same firmware version (ie. it wasn't upgraded) or became unresponsive, send us the USB-microDig as per the return instructions. We will upgrade the unit and send it back to you for free !

Wi-microDig

  • Before upgrading, close all other I-CubeX software, including Connect, as well as any other software that uses your serial ports.
  • On MacOS the serial port to use will be named "I-CubeX Wi-microDig ... ", on Windows it will be named "COM3" or similar.
  • Use EditorX v7.3x to access and configure the features enabled by firmware v6.3x.
  • Use EditorX v7.2x to access and configure the features enabled by firmware v6.2.
  • If after upgrading to firmware v6.2 you need to downgrade to firmware v6.2 or v6.1 use FirmwareX v6.2x or v6.1x. Then use EditorX v7.2x or EditorX v7.1x to configure the Wi-microDig.
  • This upgrade is fully guaranteed. If your Wi-microDig becomes unresponsive after attempting the upgrade, send us the Wi-microDig as per the return instructions. We will upgrade the unit and send it back to you for free !

Features

  • Upload firmware v7.5x to a USB-microDig with hardware v7.5.

  • Upload firmware v7.2 to a USB-microDig with hardware v7.3 or lower and firmware v7.0 or greater.
  • Firmware v7.2 is backward compatible so you can continue to use your USB-microDig in the same way you were using it before the upgrade.
  • Upload firmware v6.3x to a Wi-microDig with firmware 6.1 or greater.
  • Upload firmware v6.2 to a Wi-microDig with firmware 6.1 or greater.

Known issues

Please notify us if you encounter a bug or issue.

  • MacOS High Sierra is only supported by the 64 bit versions of FirmwareX.
  • FirmwareX v6.x may not succeed in connecting to a Wi-microDig on MacOS 10.12 or higher. Please use Connect (v1.5 or higher) instead, a computer with MacOS 10.7 - 10.11 or a computer with Windows 7 or higher.
  • USB-microDigs with hardware v7.0 can't be updated with Connect v1.5.0 - use FirmwareX instead.
  • Some USB-microDigs with firmware v7.0 can't be upgraded with FirmwareX because their flash memory was locked during manufacturing, but we can upgrade them for you at our office for free. Contact us the unit about it.
