Important Notice

Due to the nature of wireless communications, transmission and reception of data can never be guaranteed. Data may be delayed, corrupted (i.e., have errors) or be totally lost. Although significant delays or losses of data are rare when wireless devices such as the Sierra Wireless modem are used in a normal manner with a well-constructed network, the Sierra Wireless modem should not be used in situations where failure to transmit or receive data could result in damage of any kind to the user or any other party, including but not limited to personal injury, death, or loss of property. Sierra Wireless accepts no responsibility for damages of any kind resulting from delays or errors in data transmitted or received using the Sierra Wireless modem, or for failure of the Sierra Wireless modem to transmit or receive such data.

Safety and Hazards

Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in areas where blasting is in progress, where explosive atmospheres may be present, near medical equipment, near life support equipment, or any equipment which may be susceptible to any form of radio interference. In such areas, the Sierra Wireless modem

MUST BE POWERED OFF. The Sierra Wireless modem can transmit signals that could interfere with this equipment. Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in any aircraft, whether the aircraft is on the ground or in flight. In aircraft, the Sierra Wireless modem MUST BE POWERED OFF. When operating, the Sierra Wireless modem can transmit signals that could interfere with various onboard systems.

Note: Some airlines may permit the use of cellular phones while the aircraft is on the ground and the door is open. Sierra Wireless modems may be used at this time.

The driver or operator of any vehicle should not operate the Sierra Wireless modem while in control of a vehicle. Doing so will detract from the driver or operator’s control and operation of that vehicle. In some states and provinces, operating such communications devices while in control of a vehicle is an offence.

Note: * A unique feature of the Q26 Series Development Kit is that each signal

’s peripherals may

be electrically removed independently via special solder. For further details, refer to section 3.2

Special Solder.

3.2. Special Solder

The PCB print is used for peripherals that are electrically removable.

To connect signals between the embedded module and the dedicated connector on the Q26 Series

Development Kit, solder these PCB prints.

To connect signals between the embedded module and the external board connector (J201), it is recommended to avoid soldering these PCB prints (i.e. prototype a daughterboard to connect the embedded module directly through the board connector).

WM_BBD_Q26_UGD_001 Rev 007 October 05, 2010 12

Development Kit User Guide General Description

WM_BBD_Q26_UGD_001 Rev 007 October 05, 2010 50

20. ESD Functions

External ESD protections are added on the Q26 Series Development Kit for the following signals:

SIM interface signals: SIMPRES, SIM-VCC, SIM-IO, SIM-CLK, and SIM-RST (

15kV, air discharge).

USB interface signals: USB-DP and USB-DM (

15kV, air discharge).

Other interface signals protected on the embedded module are:

UART1 signals with the ADM3307 transceiver (

15kV, air discharge)

UART2 signals with the LTC2804 transceiver (

10kV, air discharge)

Warning:

As the test points at the center of the Q26 Series Development Kit are not protected against ESD discharge and they are directly connected to the signal pins of the Q26 series embedded module, users must be careful when using these TP signals.

WM_BBD_Q26_UGD_001 Rev 007 October 05, 2010 51

21. Current Measurement

To measure the current consumed by the embedded module, use the configuration enumerated in the

sub-sections below and as shown in Figure 26 Configuration for the Current Measurement.

Caution:

Do not solder the special solder, J103.

21.1. On UART1

Remove R408

Place R406=0

Ω (like R408)

21.2. On UART2

Remove R502 and R505

Place R506=0

Ω (like R502)

The UART2 link is not used; therefore J501, J502, J503, and J504 must be open (by removing the solder)

The switch UART2 must be switched to the "GPIO1" position

21.3. On BAT-TEMP

Remove R100

Plug an external power supply like VCC-EXT on "VBAT"(+) and (GND) on "GND"(-). This power supply may be set to 4V. Setting it up like this allows for peripherals to be used.

21.4. On USB

The USB link is not used; therefore J801, J802, and J803 must be open (by removing the solder).

With this configuration, the consumption current from VBATT is ONLY that of the embedded module plugged in.

For more information, refer to the following documents:
