Hello FRC Community!
We’ve just release our 2020 version of Phoenix API. The Phoenix installer and non-Windows binary kit is now available.
You can also find the latest firmware CRFs at each product page (the installer also installs them).
The new features included in this season’s release are listed below.
New Product - Talon FX…
I downloaded about three hours ago. It said the 2020 Phoenix was available. Was I too early?
Nah you’re good. I was late on the CD forwarding post.
What are the latest firmware versions for Talon SRX and Victors? My Phoenix tuner does not show any firmware CRF to update
Documentation (installer installs CRFs)
The location is documented here…
And the version release notes…
Also when you select CRF in Tuner, you can press the FRC shortcut. Latest CRFs have a season2020 suffix.
Alternatives to installer
Also blog post mentions you can download them individually from the product pages…
Alternatives to installer - Example
20.0 TalonSRX for example can be downloaded here…
Alternatives to installer - GitHub
Also you can get all the firmwares at once on github (Firmware-for-Phoenix-v5.17.3)
Noob question, does the lib complies with the new 2020 simulation?
Does the Phoenix API supports wpilib 2020 simulator? @ozrien
It compiles and runs in simulation but doesn’t put anything in the GUI. You can add your own wrapper class to do that. See CTRE Halsim
Thanks a lot! Totally missed that post.
But why not adding this in the
HAL calls in this class, but why not supporting the sim GUI there?
That’s up to CTRE, as they provide that class. They may do exactly that in a future release.
Please do @ozrien!
We will certainly make a warpper for our case but for less advance teams I think It will be very helpful
Yup, this is on our to-do list for a future release.
Next time I will mention you
@Jacob_C, any ballpark for when that release might be? 2020 season, or later?
We can likely do something simple during the 2020 season, though I’m not 100% sure yet.
Okay, thanks! I’ll keep an eye out for it. Hopefully the other vendors can do the same
