Digital addressable lighting interface - Part 105: Particular requirements for control gear and control devices - Firmware Transfer (IEC 62386-105:2020)

IEC 62386-105:2020 applies to control gear and control devices. Typically, a bus unit according to IEC 62386 (all parts) contains firmware. There are circumstances where it might be necessary to change the firmware after production or shipping of the product. For example if the bus unit does not operate as intended. In such a case, a firmware update of a bus unit via the interface is beneficial. This firmware update process is primarily designed to be a bug fix process, not a feature extension process. Nevertheless the firmware update process can be used for feature extensions. But it is important that the risk of negative effects to the complete system is considered in detail.

Interface d'éclairage adressable numérique - Partie 105: Exigences particulières pour appareillages et dispositifs de commande - Transfert du microprogramme (IEC 62386-105:2020)

L’IEC 62386-105:2020 s’applique aux appareillages et dispositifs de commande. Un appareillage de bus conforme à l'IEC 62386 (toutes les parties) contient généralement un microprogramme. Il peut être nécessaire dans certaines circonstances de modifier ce microprogramme après la production ou l’expédition du produit, par exemple lorsque l’appareillage de bus ne fonctionne pas comme prévu. Dans ce cas, il est bénéfique de mettre à jour le microprogramme de l’appareillage de bus par l’intermédiaire de l’interface. Ce processus de mise à jour du microprogramme est principalement conçu comme un processus de correction des bogues et non comme un processus d'extension de caractéristiques. Le processus de mise à jour du microprogramme peut néanmoins être utilisé pour l’extension des caractéristiques. Il est important cependant d'étudier en détail le risque d’effets négatifs sur le système entier.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as "IEC

Publication(s)"). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION

IEC 62386 contains several parts, referred to as series. The IEC 62386 series specifies a bus

system for control by digital signals of electronic lighting equipment. The IEC 62386-1xx

series includes the basic specifications. Part 101 contains general requirements for system

components, Part 102 extends this information with general requirements for control gear and

Part 103 extends it further with general requirements for control devices.

The IEC 62386-2xx series extends the general requirements for control gear with lamp

specific extensions (mainly for backward compatibility with Edition 1 of IEC 62386) and with

control gear specific features.

The IEC 62386-3xx series extends the general requirements for control devices with input

device specific extensions describing the instance types as well as some common features

that can be combined with multiple instance types.

This first edition of IEC 62386-105 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 62386-101,

IEC 62386-102 and the various parts that make up the IEC 62386-2xx series for control gear,

together with IEC 62386-103 and the various parts that make up the IEC 62386-3xx series of

particular requirements for control devices. The division into separately published parts

provides for ease of future amendments and revisions. Additional requirements will be added

as and when a need for them is recognized.
The setup of the standards is graphically represented in Figure 1 below.
Figure 1 – IEC 62386 graphical overview

When this part of IEC 62386 refers to any of the clauses of the IEC 62386-1xx series, the

extent to which such a clause is applicable and the order in which the tests are to be

performed are specified. The other parts also include additional requirements, as necessary.

All numbers used in this document are decimal numbers unless otherwise noted. Hexadecimal

numbers are given in the format 0xVV, where VV is the value. Binary numbers are given in

DIGITAL ADDRESSABLE LIGHTING INTERFACE –
Part 105: Particular requirements for control gear and control devices –
Firmware transfer
1 Scope
This part of IEC 62386 applies to control gear and control devices.

Typically, a bus unit according to IEC 62386 (all parts) contains firmware. There are

circumstances where it might be necessary to change the firmware after production or

shipping of the product. For example if the bus unit does not operate as intended. In such a

case, a firmware update of a bus unit via the interface is beneficial.

This firmware update process is primarily designed to be a bug fix process, not a feature

extension process. Nevertheless the firmware update process can be used for feature

extensions. But it is important that the risk of negative effects to the complete system is

considered in detail.

NOTE Annex D provides a “Firmware update management check sheet” to support risk estimation.

7.2 32 bit forward frame encoding

The forward frame format used for firmware update consists of n = 32 data bits as described

in IEC 62386-101:2014, 7.4.3 (Reserved forward frame).
The 32 bit forward frame for 32 bit frames shall be encoded as shown in Table 1.

For bit 24, 0 indicates address space for control gear, 1 indicates address space for control

devices.
8 Timing

The requirements of IEC 62386-101:2014 and IEC 62386-101:2014/AMD1:2018, Clause 8

apply.
9 Method of operation
9.1 General

The requirements of IEC 62386-101:2014 and IEC 62386-101:2014/AMD1:2018, 9.8 (Dealing

with frames and commands), 9.2 (Transactions) with the exception that the total duration may

exceed 400 ms, 9.4 (Command iteration) and 9.6 (Use of multiple bus power supplies) apply.

9.2 Data transmission

A bus unit receives a new FW block by block. The first block (block 0) contains information

about the type of bus unit (see Table 3), which receives a new FW. This avoids transferring

the wrong FW to a bus unit if more than one bus unit is updated at a time.
NOTE Annex A provides detailed information about the update file.

The opcode byte 1 shall be 0xFB for 32-bit standard commands (see Table 6). If the opcode

byte 1 in a standard command is not equal to 0xFB, the bus unit shall not accept the standard

command.
9.3 Duration

A data transmission frame consists of a start bit, 32 data bits and a stop condition, which

occupies the bus for around 30 ms. With a settling time of less than 15 ms (maximum frame

priority) the transmission of three bytes takes less than 45 ms. For an update of 64 kByte it is

expected to take less than 20 min.

9.4 Security

It is recommended that the individual manufacturer ensures firmware image integrity and

authenticity. This document specifies the use of CRC checksums to help ensure error-free

transfer of data.
9.5 Firmware update features

Each bus unit shall expose its firmware update features as a combination of device properties

as given in Table 2.
Table 2 – Firmware update features
Bit Description Value See
0 “fwUpdateCancelSupported” is TRUE? "1" = "YES" XXX
1-7 Reserved – not implemented "0" = "NO"
The bus unit firmware update features can be queried using
QUERY FW UPDATE FEATURES.

If the bus unit supports cancellation of the firmware update process (see 9.6.2.3),

“fwUpdateCancelSupported” is set to TRUE.
9.6 Update process
9.6.1 Start firmware update

A bus unit shall enable the firmware update process by the acceptance of the command

START FW TRANSFER. Several bus units can be addressed in this way to update more than

one bus unit at a time.
NOTE 1 Annex C provides an example of the firmware update process.

It is recommended not to trigger erasing of the memory before block 0 is verified.

Whilst “fwUpdateProcessEnabled” is TRUE, the operation of the bus unit is manufacturer-

specific except for the requirements given in this document.

NOTE 2 This includes, for example, the reaction to commands of other parts of the IEC 62386 series.

9.6.2 Data transfer
9.6.2.1 Block 0 (information block)

Block 0 contains all data for the bus unit to decide if it will accept the new firmware or not.

The GTIN number, the hardware version number and the firmware version number contained

in the bus unit are described in IEC 62386-102:2014 and IEC 62386-102:2014/AMD1:2018,

9.10.6 (Memory bank 0 for control gear) and IEC 62386-103:2014 and IEC 62386-

103:2014/AMD1:2018, 9.10.6 (Memory bank 0 for control devices). A bus unit shall have a

maximum of one family GTIN which shall be shown in the documentation of the bus unit.

Upon reception of a complete block 0, the following information is checked, where Table 3

shows block 0 content:
• The received block 0 “Size of block” is equal to the value shown in Table 3.
• The received block 0 “Block 0 version” is equal to the value shown in Table 3.
