Software and Firmware Releases

Each release bundle contains documentation, firmware and software including executables, C and MATLAB APIs, and source code. The ThinkRF WSA5000 is a network appliance and as such we provide support for interfacing to the WSA5000 via the standard SCPI and VITA VRT network protocols and as per the WSA5000 Programmer’s Guide. All of the provided applications, APIs and source code are provided “as is” and for example only.

Please note if your firmware version is different than that within the release bundle then a firmware update is required as per the Firmware Update Quick Notes.
