FTdx-5000 Update Software Main V.0123 – SP1NY OLED’s display replacement tutorial

FTdx-5000′s Update Software Main Ver.0123 released 10/22/2012. The Yaesu USA information PDF (link) –  SP1NY OLED’s sub-display replacement DIY (do it yourself) tutorial – Step-by-step procedure to replace the faulty OLEDs (EL) on the FTDX-5000 Front panel – See the Software Info (link),  QST review PDF (link) below.

FTDX-5000 OLED change DIY tutorial and more info.

On the FTdx-5000′s three EL “OLED” Electro Luminescence displays maximize your operation with useful and tactical supportive information. -
[Issue]:) OLED subdisplay broken (see the picture) one vertical white line or plus lines appear in them! – More people had the same issue (see the FTdx-5000′s Yahoo Group). - It seems that it’s an mortality of the OLED driver chip that is integrated into the ribbon connector of the display or so.

Step-by-step procedure to replace the faulty OLEDs – (! other by link below)

  
…………………………………………………………………………………………………….
 On the first OLED one line starts faint and then become brighter and brighter. In the mean time second one showed up with it’s full brightness and thikness.
On the second OLED first line starts with almost full brightness then after about two weeks second one appeared dummy and thick, increasing brightness, day by day then starts slowly dimming or so – [Note] !! These events are reported for information only!

FTDX-5000 Yaesu USA Update Software with Main Ver.0123 (10/22/2012)

You need a serial cable from your computer to the serial port on the FTdx-5000′s. - If you use a USB port to serial interface adapter, make sure it is the FTDI chipset or so. – Update Software in the FTdx-5000 it takes a little practice for the many “DIY” steps procedures. – By the way, each update has all the previous updates, so you only have to do the latest one. - The tricky part is throwing the programming switch inside the back of the Transceiver!

!! Please see the versions list on the PDF Yaesu and be sure to read the entire package before doing anything.

The latest versions are listed below with the release dates (! partial list).

FTDX5000′s QST Review -  Both receivers cover from 0.03 to 60 MHz. Receiver A is double conversion, with the first IF at 9 MHz and the second DSP IF at 30 kHz for SSB and CW and 24 kHz for AM and FM modes. Receiver B is a tripleconversion design, with the first and second IFs at 40.455 MHz and 455 kHz, respectively, and the DSP third IF identical to the second IF in the main receiver

FTdx-3000 Menu very easy – VFO B/A now A/B! – FCC ID ok – FT1D and FTM-400D

FTdx-3000 Settings MENU now scrolling on display and set values! an innovative approach (now… like Icom inc.) – FTDX3000 approved by F.C.C.  ID K6620461X50 – New FT-1D V/U HT FCC ID K6620445X20 and FTM-400D V/U Mobile for digital  C4FM FDMA mode. - See the update pictures of a built-in 4.3-in TFT Display and other news and Link below.

List Price: $3500.00 Your Price: $2799.95  now 2699.95 (Universal Radio US market )

  

FTdx-3000 Utilizes a new innovative and easy menu settings system and a new 4.3-inch wide color LCD displays the operating information and the status of the transceiver functions selected. (now… like Icom inc.)

To enter into SET MENU mode, simply press the [MENU] button and turn the [CLAR/VFO-B] knob to scroll Up or Down your desired Menu number displayed on the Main LCD and access to many settings and speeds up the operation.

The layout settings [MENU-1] are very fine and offer a nice array of features for the operator. The directional arrows (keypad) and [SELECT] button help you with quick and intuitive access to settings. (please click the picture to enlarg) -

These systems have been newly developed by Yaesu Musen Co., LTD with new substantial design changes, compared to previous devices under the Vertex Standard Inc. Brand! – I have to commend Yaesu Musen Co. for coming up with such an innovative and easy approach.

In Dayton and Friedrichshafen Expo as you can see the buttons [VFO B/A] are reversed! than usual [VFO A/B] – Now in Tokyo Ham Fair these buttons to select the two VFO have been reported in the usual position: [VFO A/B]

The Main operating frequency is the most important in the radio display, with [VFO-A] frequency located just above the Main dial. The [VFO-B] frequency can be displayed on the 4.3-inch color LCD display (left). - For the [MODE] change (USB LSB CW  RTTY etc.) you have a single button with sequential selection or via Memory channels!

FTdx-3000 Receiver is double conversion, with the first IF at 9 MHz and the second DSP IF at 30 kHz for SSB and CW and 24 kHz for AM and FM modes (like FTdx-5000′s) but the 1st mixer is different from the 1st mix used in the 5000′ series (8x3SK294 !) (see the picture)

Independent Frequency display although the FTDX-3000 has only one receiver; the rig uses dual VFOs, essential for split operation. General coverage receive is available from 30 kHz to 56 MHz.

On the rear panel Signal are furnished: Output for an external receiver and the 9 MHz IF output and two connectors for optional u-tune unit … etc. (see picture)

The July, August and September  QST’s Cover II inserts the manufacturer’s specifications: !! 4.3-inch Large color LCD display / DR:106 dB / IP3 +33 dBm  / 14MHz Band CW (500) (IPO ON, Roofing Filter 600Hz, 2 kHzSpacing) -

FLEX-6700™ utilizes Spectral Capture Units™ and On-board Digital Signal processing – New PDF Italian

Flex-6000 “Signature Series” – Flex-6500 – Flex-6700 packs more built-in digital signal process power than ever before imagined in an amateur radio transceiver - The Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA works in tandem with a Texas Instruments® DaVinci® Digital Media Processor that includes a 1.4 GHz (1.2 GHz on FLEX-6500) ARM Cortex®-A8 CPU with NEON® floating point coprocessor! – See picture and link download ENG & IT pdf  below

Update IT: La serie FLEX-6500 / 6700  utilizzano “internamente” una Xilinx Virtex-6®, potente FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array), per  tutte le operazioni di Down e Up conversion e l’analisi spettrale;  la Virtex-6® lavora in tandem ad un microprocessore Texas Instruments™ il DaVinci™ Digital Media Processor che incorpora anche un ARM Cortex™-A8 CPU (con processore NEON™) a 1,4GHz (a 1,2GHz nel Flex-6500)  ed un coprocessore DSP a 32 bit in virgola mobile da 1,2GHz (1,0GHZ nel modello FLEX-6500).

Link to:  Broshure in Italiano di WoodBoxRadio by IK3VIG, Beppe (the boss!)

Spectral Capture Units™ (SCU) which act something like extremely broadband multi… Slice Receviers in One Radio, for reception from 0.33 to 77 MHz plus 135 to 165 MHz. Optimized preselector filters can be selected for the ham bands for greater out of band rejection.. 100dB 2-tone 3rd Order Dynamic Range.. at 100Hz Spacing! New SmartSDR™ Technology & User Client Interface!

The innovative SmartSDR™ appears to have two main parts – the massive heavy duty part living inside the Flex-6000′s and the light GUI & Related Services portion out on the thin client Interface (…. Personal Computer, Notebook, iPad or iPhone! or..!)

New Flex-6000′s Series SmartSDR™ Radios, where the heavy lifting of DSP is done all in the radio and the computer has only “thin client” duties! – Immagine… This is truly a “Game Changer” product line, moving the main heavy lifting of SDR radio back into the radio box!

The Xilinx Virtex-6® FPGA put simply is a way to put software on a chip so the code can rip through huge amounts of data processing it basically in parallel rather than in series. No longer does the PC have massive processing duties!! – Flex-Radio has worked out a way to bring the costs of this massive processing power to amateurs radio price points.

The FLEX-6500 and FLEX-6700 Transceivers utilize Xilinx Virtex-6® FPGA hardware to directly generate the CW waveform digitally at the RF carrier frequency. (idem for digital RTTY /PSK31 etc..)
This means that the RF carrier switches at hardware speeds without first element truncation as is typical in many radios. When combined high speed T/R and bias switching on the PA, <10 millisecond key down to RF output is achieved.  - Full brek-in is possible from remote operations (SmartSDR™ - Networking! Native remote capability – Ethernet interface…) - The FLEX-6700 provides continuous duty 100W output across the entire 160-6m band, a push-pull pair of rugged RD100HHF1 MOSFET transistors.

The (*) Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA works in tandem with a Texas Instruments™ DaVinci™ Digital Media Processor that includes a 1.4 GHz (1.2 GHz on FLEX-6500) ARM Cortex™-A8 CPU with NEON™ coprocessor.
It also includes a 1.2 GHz (1.0 GHz on FLEX-6500), 32-bit floating point DSP coprocessor. The FLEX-6000 Signature Series achieves world class PNDR (Phase Noise Dynamic Range) through the incorporation of an ultra-low phase noise master oscillator at 983.04 MHz! -
