Anchor Firmware

Originally, there were two main branches of anchor firmware:

  • FW 1.0xx which was designed for anchor with ethernet backhaul and FW 2.0xx for anchors with WiFi/Ethernet backhaul.
  • FW 3.0xx integrates both WiFi/Ethernet back-hauls and enables to use TCP Synchronization.  
  • FW 3.1.1 brings new TCP Sync gen2 as optimized synchronization algorithm.
  • FW 3.1.6 supports UWB backchannel and related a new tag FW 3.127 architecture

Since there was consecutive progress within the firmware development, the newer anchor firmware versions also require newer RTLS Studio.

The compatibility with the upcoming RTLS Studio version is always kept from the point of anchor FW release date.
