New API Release V1.8 ?

Postby IanP » Thu Dec 31, 2015 10:28 am

I noticed this new API release V1.8.0 listed for Windows in the NEWS thread, as being available to download, but cannot find it on the website!

Best I could find and download was V1.6.0 (22/12/2015). Also noted in the News thread that the new API V 1.8.0 should be used with the latest EXTIO V 3.5 but instead found V 3.6 (26/12/2015) available for download.

Is the new API V1.8.0 available for download?

I placed an order for the SDRplay on the 29/12/2015 and should receive it, (Australia) next week. That is unbelievably good service for this time of the year! Thanks for the quick turnaround and I'm looking forward to having a play with the SDC and seeing what it offers. Hoping to sort out the right drivers, etc, before the unit arrives.

I also hope the floods you guys have been experiencing have all drained away and life returns to normal again asap!

Hello Ian,

Sorry for the confusion...

The installation executable is version 1.6.0 but it contains version 1.8.0 of the API - we'll find a better way to explain this information. So you are correct in the API/Driver installer that you found.

The EXTIO was hot-fixed on 26th December as there was a bug in the LNA switch, so 3.6 is the latest version.

Best regards,

SDRplay Support

Hi SDRplay Support team. Happy new year!!!

Can I see the benefits of API 1.8 (in particular the IQ balance new function) with SDR# plugin -- currently v2.2 -- ???
Should I wait for release 2.3? Is it in plan?
(btw, since the sdr# I/Q balance in no more working with sdrplay your new function is very valuable)
(Of course, I know I can use extio v3.6 with sdr# build1361 ...)

Dear Captain Nemo,
Yes the new API will ensure that you get the benefit of DC offset compensation and I/Q correction with release 2.2 of he SDR# plugin. What you won't get will be the benefits of the new gain map, but that will be addressed in v2.3 which we hope to have available pretty soon.

Sincerely

Dumb question...

Do I need to de-install the old files before installing the newer versions? Or do the newer versions overwrite the older ones?

Thanks.

Rick

Hi Rick,

New overwrites old - don't worry if the hardware driver doesn't update, there have been no functional changes to it, it was just updated with a different certificate to make it install easier on < Windows 8 machines

Best regards,

SDRplay Support
