ID: Processor / board identification

FAST Serial Protocol: Overview & First Steps

This documentation section is about the FAST Serial Protocol (FSP) commands, which are the low-level commands a host computer sends to a FAST board. Most FAST Pinball makers do not need to know about these details, since the pinball game framework (such as the Mission Pinball Framework) handles this communication for you.

If you're writing your own game framework, we have a series of programming guides. Also, be sure to read the overview of how FSP works and how to connect first.

The ID: command is used to get the processor and board identification for the FAST controller that's connected. It will also show the firmware version. This command is also a good choice for just checking if the system is up and running. Running this command does not modify anything on the FAST platform.




ID:<Processor> <Product Number> <Firmware version>

For example:

ID:NET FP-SBI-0095  01.99

This example is showing a connection to the NET processor, to product number FP-SBI-0095, running firmward version 1.99.
