1 Replies and 2756 Views Nothing on serail out of the box  2756  1 Started by  maestro I have UART adapter to my workstation but nothing comes on minicom 9600 baud (or any other baud) when I attach the battery to board. I also tried to use USB attached to workstation also. I downloaded the microSD files for u-boot and inserted that in to the board but nothing displays either. Should I be seeing LoLo out of the box though

3 Replies and 2667 Views GSM Modem  2667  3 Started by  Deleted User Hi, I am trying to get the GSM modem to work without much luck. What I have tried is just talking to ttyS0 using a default kernel. Also tried playing with the GPIOs that appear to goto the modem module (MODEM_nRESET and MODEM_nPWRON) which appear to map to GPIO_127 and GPIO_126 based on the schematic. None of this appears to work. Any one know what is required to get the GSM modem working (responding to AT commands) Thanks. -- Hunyue

I have connected serial cable, USB cable and power supply (Battery is fully charged). I am not able to see anything on minicom.

Any pointer or document describes how to get your new Zoom board ready for development would be helpful.
