    Tessera Processor Software 2.1.3

    5th December 2018
    2.1.3 Issue A
    Processor Firmware
    Tessera Remote
    Tessera Control

    Compatibility Note

    Panels upgraded to 1.5 firmware or later will not be discovered by or communicate with a processor running firmware 1.4.2 or earlier due to a protocol change. To downgrade these panels back to 1.4, use a processor running 1.4.3 or 1.4.4 to push firmware to them.

    Quick Association

    u003cpu003eQuick association is a new, even faster way to associate large numbers of panels to your Brompton processor.u003c/pu003ernu003culu003ernu003cliu003eEach string is assigned a unique numeric code which will appear on the first panel of each string during association. Entering the numeric code on the processor (number keys or numpad) selects the corresponding string for association, the string is then ‘attached’ to the cursor for placement on the canvas.u003c/liu003ernu003cliu003eSupported by all processors, in both remote and local UIu003c/liu003ernu003cliu003eSupported only by R2-based panels with at least 64×64 pixelsu003c/liu003ernu003cliu003eEnabled by default when adding from network (unless in blind mode)rnu003culu003ernu003cliu003eCan be toggled on/off by the toolbar buttonu003c/liu003ernu003c/ulu003ernu003c/liu003ernu003c/ulu003ernu003cpu003eu0026nbsp;u003c/pu003e
