1.0.4-GA

New or changed:

  • Analyzed and refactored code with regards to initial pairing and LTK / SK creation to make initial LTK key agreement more robust against LTK and SK negotiation failures with AirID1 devices.
  • Moved exchangeKey to AIDDeviceStateConnected
  • Added state counter to better track state changes and having better control for state transits
  • replaced calls to exchangeKey by state reenter 
  • Use state counter for detecting init abort on problems or connectivity issues when Key agreement is in progress.
  • changed Timer Timeout for pairing (from selection to successful final initialization)  from 30.0 seconds to 50.0 seconds 
  • Changed encryption TAG length from 8 to 4 to comply with other platform drivers and make packet transmit more robust
  • Updated logging to use device name where appropriate

Fixed:

  • AirID reader becomes disconnected during initial connection with pairing (regression)
  • Fixed mis guided Timer Timeout which sometimes fires even when Timer was invalidated.  This issue was partly responsible for firing  "Initialization Timeout" Errors even when LTK and SK where successfully negotiated.
  • Use encrypted data length for packet calculation not the "unencrypted" data length.

Note

Note for firmware updates

The device settings will be set to default for firmware updates from versions lower than v1.1.1. Please check your device settings after doing the firmware update

Note for firmware downgrades

If you want to downgrade to 1.1.1, first do a downgrade to 1.1.0, then upgrade to 1.1.1, otherwise NVM in 1.1.1 will not work even after factory reset. If re-updating, do a factory reset.

Note for users with version 1.2.0-rc1/rc2

For firmware updates from version 1.2.0-rc1/rc2, make sure the USB cable is not connected BEFORE the update process is started. In case the device is already connected via USB, replug the cable to enter the flashing mode.

DescriptionVersionRelease NotesClassificationFileChecksum (SHA256)

AirID 2 Mini Firmware Business Edition


1.4.0-GA

 Fixed

  • ensure that local changed settings are sent back to the host side.
  • Don't switch to update mode @ BLE indication "0x0A System Suspend".
  • Improve USB bootloader mode (HW version < 1.1.0) selection
  • Switch off JTAG pins if JTAG is fused

 Improvements

  • Disable dynamic connection interval. Otherwise we might see BLE supervision timeouts.
  • Fix BLE disconnect after pairing and no communication for 3s. Some Android devices keep the BLE connection after pairing and blocks the communication between AirID app and AirID device.
  • Update BLE stack to version 2.13.6 and replace usage of deprecated BLE API methods.
  • Set 2M PHY as preferred PHY (BLE5)
  • Do all BLE related settings before advertising starts
  • A2XX: Switch off BLE when low battery limit is reached (~3.4V). This should prevent from smartcard errors at low battery conditions

 New Functionality (API/SDK)

  • new RPC method 0x16 to switch to bootloader mode from host side
  • Prepare OTA functionality (only for A2MX and A2XX with HW version >= 1.1.0)

 Removed Functionality

  • migrate NVM parameters from old NVM implementation. Note update from FW <= 1.1.1 are no longer supported!
  • Remove BLE indications to trigger update modes (0x04 and 0x0B)
  • Remove "Force 256 Bit" setting. "Force 256 Bit" is always enabled and cannot be disabled anymore.
  • Remove no longer needed settings: Contrast, Signal Strength and Limited Advertising
  • Add connection parameters to BLE event logging and distinguish between A2XX and A2MX timer handles

AirID 2 Mini Firmware Business Edition

1.3.2-GA

 Fixed

  • Shut up USB IRQ noises with older AirID2 hardware revisions -> speed fixes

 Added

  • Disconnect after Bluetooth Pairing when there is no write to AirID service for 3s afterwards
  • Added watchdog to switch off Bluetooth when Battery gets below 3,4V (-0%) to avoid SC failures for power consuming tasks, RSA Keypair generation or other heavy duty operations 
  • Added event logging capability for the last ~100 events to AirID2 firmware 
    • To get an insight view what happens in the BLE stack @ a disconnect, we gather some debug infos:
      • Read last ble disconnect reason in debug menu
      • Information about connection parameters
      • New logging data struct for BLE stack events:
        • size ~100 last events
        • stop logging @ disconnect
        • read data from new RPC command
        • restart logging after read
    • This feature is currently only available from the DEBUG menu of the AirID2 device and not exposed to any SDK / Driver

AirID 2 Mini Firmware Business Edition

1.2.1-GA

Improved

  • NVM rework to make future firmware updates smooth
  • BLE stack updated to v 2.12.3
  • Distance sensor presettings adjusted: near -70dB, mid -75dB, far -80dB
  • If the device is in USB card reader mode, a new bluetooth connection will not make it leave the USB card reader mode
  • Card support: disabled Clock stop support which seems to cause trouble with TicTok cards
  • For AirID Mini: Linearization of battery level during charging and discharging
Note

Note for firmware updates

The device settings will be set to default for firmware updates from versions lower than v1.1.1. Please check your device settings after doing the firmware update

Note for firmware downgrades

If you want to downgrade to 1.1.1, first do a downgrade to 1.1.0, then upgrade to 1.1.1, otherwise NVM in 1.1.1 will not work even after factory reset. If re-updating, do a factory reset.

Note for users with version 1.2.0-rc1/rc2

For firmware updates from version 1.2.0-rc1/rc2, make sure the USB cable is not connected BEFORE the update process is started. In case the device is already connected via USB, replug the cable to enter the flashing mode.

  • Setting maximum and minimum fast connection intervals to 15 ms
  • Setting maximum and minimum slow connection intervals to 195/210 ms
  • Don't send duplicated smart card status
  • Keep existing configuration paramaters at firmware update; new ones will be added with their default values

Known limitations:

  • The firmware update might reset the configured settings
  • In the rare case that the BLE connection of the reader can not be switched off by the control element, please restart the reader.
  • For users working with BLE and CCID (USB Card Reader > On) with multiple devices: If there is an active BLE connection and a new connection via CCID is started, the card access via BLE is blocked. Also the other way around: If there is an active CCID connection and a new connection via BLE is started, the card access via CCID is blocked.
