Synapse Software Update

To complete this update:

  1. Download and Install TDT Drivers/RPvdsEx. This installation will require a reboot.

    1. Open zBUSmon (on the desktop or in C:\TDT\zDrv3).
    2. Click the Update All Devices button.
      • A time warning will be displayed. Most processors can be programmed in four minutes; however, the RZ processors may take up to 40 minutes (five minutes per DSP). If your system contains several devices this process could take significant time.
