G90 Firmware, Manuals & Utils

G90 Firmware v1.75

This file has the latest firmware update for Xiegu G90 including instructions to perform the update.

IMPORTANT: There are two files to update, the file labeled “G90_MainUnit_FW_V…” should be uploaded to the main unit using the COM connector on the back side of the G90. The other file labeled “G90_DispUnit_FW_V…” should be uploaded to the display unit with the serial cable connected to the lower 3.5 mm jack on the left side of the front panel.

After successful update, cycle power by turning the radio off, then remove 12 volt for five or more  seconds before turning it on again.

Whats new in 1.7.5 (latest version)

  1. New system menu operation logic, change system menu item by pressing BAND Up/Down key (Equivalent to press PREV/NEXT)
  2. New Multi-Function Knob operation logic
    – Press and hold Multi-Function Knob to enter menu
    – Rotate Multi-Function Knob to choose desired function
    – Press Multi-Function Knob to save and exit menu
  3. New filter Center/Bw operation logic
  4. Narrow FM mode is available but just for testing
  5. Add RF GAIN to Multi-Function Knob function list
  6. Lower CW Tone volume(-15dB lower than the original level)
  7. Set Narrow FM modulation frequency deviation to about +/-3.5kHz
  8. Add Narrow FM SQL

Whats new in 1.7.4 (previous version)

  1. Fixed the problem that MIC Gain is relatively high
  2. Added auto FFT scale
  3. Added background VFO frequency display function under channel mode
  4. Widened the maximum bandwidth of CW filter
  5. Optimised the filter bandwidth/center frequency point adjustment and CW Tone adjustment range under CW mode
    – If CW Tone is adjusted under CW or CWR mode, the range of CW Tone is the upper and lower limits of filter under current mode
    – If CW Tone is not adjusted under CW or CWR mode, the range of CW Tone shall be within the upper and lower limits of filter under CW and CWR mode
  6. Changed RF GAIN to directly act on receiving channel gain Adjustment range: 1~100% (default: 50%), corresponding gain (on the basis of receiving channel gain): -19.6~+20dB,step=0.4dB
    – Note: RF GAIN will influence the value of Table S and FFT
  7. Added microphone filter of SSB mode to attenuate partial low frequency component of microphone signal and improve emission efficiency
  8. Changed the color of lines in frequency spectrum picture into green and fill color into semitransparent green
  9. Optimized the encoder to prevent it from interference or impulse as the first one
  10. Optimized stack and enhanced the stability
  11. Optimized the control characteristics of AGC and ALC
  12. Fixed the bug of channel storage function
  13. Fixed the spectrum display bug during emission
  14. Fixed the bug of standing wave detection threshold
  15. Fixed the problem of interrupted voice during low power emissionUpdated version number can be checked in 10th item of system menu. It takes about 3s to read version information once entering this item)

Whats new in 1.7.3

  1. Rotate encoder driver is optimised, more smoother and less losing of step
  2. Total RF GAIN=1/4 RF GAIN setting when AGC is off, prevent sudden volume increase
  3. Rx volume step is optimised
  4. Lower the MIC GAIN,prevent picking up too much background noise

Whats new in 1.7.2 (experimental version)

  1. CW timing is optimised, solved the issue of randomly losing DOT/DASH.
  2. T/R switch timing is optimised, faster switching time (t<=53ms).
  3. Add ALC meter, display below the TX power meter when TXing. It is mainly for digital mode, to get the good linearity. adjust driving level or Line IN volume to make the ALC meter value within 30~90. Max level of Line IN should not be more than 600mVp-p, or it will overload the input amplifier.
  4. PO meter is optimised, more accurate.
  5. Rotate encoder driver is optimised, less losing of steps.
  6. ACC LINE OUT is optimised, main volume will not effect its output level anymore.
  7. ACC Band Voltage switching output is optimised, solved the issue of wrong voltage for 12m band.
  8. TS max digit change from 10k to 100k when pushing the main knob.
  9. RIT function added: Press and hold main knob to activate.
