Milli Firmware Update on Integrated Devices
The Milli modules are typically shipped with known good firmware images. However, due to discovery of errors, or due to new releases of firmware that include features desired by the partner, it may be necessary to upgrade those images. The procedure outlined is intended for updating firmware on Milli modules that are integrated into end devices when hardwired to the device. This can be done during manufacturing, in the warehouse or even in the field as long as the configuration header pins are accessible as described here.
Milli Configuration Personalization on Integrated Devices
The Milli modules are shipped in a generic, non-customized state. When placed in a partner device, they need to be configured to work with an application specific profile, and personalized for customer use. This procedure describes how to perform this customization/personalization with a hardwired connection.
Milli Power Overview
Milli is a communication module designed as the battery-powered device (BPD) to perform not only wireless mesh networking but also low cost sensor functionalities. Hence the efficient power management is one of the key requirements. This documention provides an overview for Milli power management engineering in terms of design, measurement, optimization, and so on.
