FAST Pinball Firmware

Latest Firmware Versions

Here are the latest versions of firmware for FAST Pinball products.

Nano Controller

  • NET Processor: 1.05
  • RGB Processor: 1.00

I/O Boards: 1.05

How to tell what firmware version you have?

Connect to your Nano via a terminal emulator, then use the id: command to get the firmware version for the processor that you're connected to. (e.g. Connect to the second serial port for the NET processor, and the third port for the RGB processor.) Send the id: command to each. For the I/O boards, use the cn: command while connected to the NET processor. We have a tutorial on connecting to your Nano if you've never done this before.

If you're using MPF, you should see the firmware versions reported the MPF logs.

Updating your firmware

How you update your firmware depends on how you got your FAST boards. If you own FAST Pinball boards because they came as part of a pinball machine or kit, then you need to talk to that company, because their code update process will update the FAST firmware too, and you don't want to confuse or break things by updating the firmware on your own to some version they don't expect.

If you bought your FAST Pinball hardware individually, to use in your own pinball project, then these firmware update instructions are for you.

The Firmware update process uses the terminal emulator software and the FAST serial protocol. You connect to the FAST processor and then send a text file to it. Once the FAST controller updates itself, it will update each of the I/O boards.
