Training Members to Flash Control System Components

Hello everyone, I am the Controls Computer Maintenance lead for my team, and I have been given the task of making sure our members are equipped with the knowledge needed to flash firmware onto the major modules of a robot. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • RoboRIO
  • Talons SRX
  • Victor SPX
  • PDP
  • Limelight
  • RevRobotics SparkMax

Essentially if it has firmware that updates semi-frequently, they should know how to install the new firmware.

I was wondering if anyone had made any guides on how to flash or install firmware to these components, and if they were willing to share them? I am just looking for detailed instructions, to try and save myself some time and get ready for build season!

Best of luck this season everyone, and thank you for the help!

There are official/vendor online docs for all of these:
