Pixie Firmware Versions

Recommended Posts

Pixie firmware versions:
1.01  Initial release version, bootloader does not work.
            (must be returned to factory to update bootloader)
          Macros, color effects, and standalone are not implemented.
          Only full resolution and resolution 1 implemented.
          Hold down test button to run test pattern on pixels.
          Supported: WS2811, WS2801, SM16716, LPD6803, TMI1803, TMI1804, TMI1809.
          Max pixels/string: 100.
1.02  Initial release version (same as 1.01), working bootloader.

1.03  Macros, color effects, and resolution implemented for 50 pixel ribbons/strings.
             (original CCR compatibility mode)
          Single shimmer timer for all pixels (LOR effect).
          Implement DIP switches for 2nd generation Pixies.
          Implement standalone - bug can cause standalone sequence to hang.
          Test button:
             Hold during power up to reset controller.
             Hold 5 secs while powered up to reset controller.
             Press momentarily to start pixel test pattern.
             Press momentarily again to stop, or wait 5 minutes.
          Implement DMX input for Pixie2 & Pixie4 - has two bugs.
          Add RGB ICs: 943, UCS1903 (Use WS2811 for UCS1903, timings adjusted for both)

1.04   4.3.34 Hardware Utility or later required to configure props & per port color order. If you have an earlier version of LOR software that supported Pixie configuration but does not recogninize your pixie with 1.04 firmware then you should upgrade to 4.3.34. If your license does not support upgrading to 4.3.34 and you are not ready for a license renewal then you can use the LOR_DeviceFile.txt (below) which should allow you to configure your pixie with 1.04 firmware. (Replace file normally located in C:\Program Files(x86)\Light-O-Rama\)
          Support Pixie4DMX (iDMX1000 replacement).
          Fix DMX input to Pixie2 & Pixie4.
          Fix boundary problem in Enhanced Network mode that could lose last pixel's data.
          Fix standalone hang.
          Standalone transmit rate changed to 500K.
          Implement Props (singing faces).
          Implement regular LOR network DMX intensity command.
          Implement port selectable color order.
          Max pixels/string: 170.
