LISY Image

The LISY Image is based on Raspbian buster and can run on all LISY MPUs with all variants of Raspberry PI. I do recommend the PI Zero W or the (cheaper) PI Zero in case you do not want to use the WLAN functionality with LISY_control.

Raspberry devices are rare at the moment, but you can also use a 'Banana PI M2 Zero' by using my embedded version.

Just download the latest Image (zip-format) unzip it to '.img' format and write it to your SD Card ( 8GByte Minimum, 16GByte recommended).  See the LISY user Manual for details.

You can use the direct links below or browse my software repository.

'old'  version of LISY Image

'old' version of LISY image in case you have problems with the 'stable' version.

latest 'stable' LISY Image

'stable' version of LISY image. New features will be tested in 'test' version of LISY image before implementing here.

Update of a running LISY system

The zip file containing the full LISY Image has around 3.3Gbyte size. If you have a running Version of LISY Version 5.28-60 or later you can do an incremental update by using LISY_control. Incremental udate is only around 15Mbyte size.

LISY_control supports updates via Internet and from local disc via Webbrowser.
