Reset Button
Press the “Reset” button to activate the hardware reset.
You should only use this function if the software does
not function properly.
Power LED
The Power LED will show solid green if power is
properly applied
Ready LED
The Ready LED will show solid green if Matrix 514
complete system boot up. If Ready LED is off during
system boot up, please check if power input is correct.
Turn off the power and restart Matrix 514 again. If
Ready LED is still off, please contact the manufacture
for technical support.
Link/Act
When Ethernet ports are connected to the network,
Link/Act will show solid green and if there is traffic is
the Ethernet, this LED will flash
Serial Port LED
These four dual color LEDs indicate the data traffic at
the serial ports. When RXD line is high then Green
light is ON and when TXD line is high, Yellow light is
ON.
Ethernet Port
Serial Ports:
The four serial ports are 3-in-1 RS-232/422/485 ports.
Note:
1. RS-232/422/485 is software selection
2. Only port2 support modem control signals
Serial Console Port:
Serial console port share the connector with Serial port 3 but
the pin definition as shown as follow:
P3
The serial console port is disabled as factory default setting.
To enable the serial console, you need to use the serial console
cable and connect it to port 3. Use any terminal software such
as hyper terminal and setting as follow:
Baud Rate: 115200
Data bits: 8
Parity: N
Stop bit: 1
Terminal type: ANSI
Once system is power on, you will see “Starting Matrix520….”,
Keep typing $$$$ to turn on the serial console function. If the
serial console is enabled, you will see “Console (ttyS0)” as
follow. Repeat this procedure will disable the serial console and
Screen will show “Console (null)”

LAN 4 IP Address: 192.168.4.127
Login: guest
Password: guest
Supervisor: root (ssh supported)
Password: root
Network Settings
To configure the IP address, Netmask and Gateway setting,
please modify /disk/etc/rc as following:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.127 netmask 255.255.255.0
For DHCP setting:
dhcpcd eth1 &
For Ad-Hoc mode mode XXXX is the Matrix 500 device name
and YYYYYYYY is the encryption key MMMM should be adhoc.
To configure the IP address use command
dhcpcd wlan0 &
or
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.2.127 netmask 255.255.255.0
File System
Matrix 514 configures the root file system as RAMDISK and the
user disk (/disk) which includes /home and /etc directory are
configured as Flash Disk. To find out the file system information,
please use command /mount as show as above. In addition, use
command /df to find out the disk space of the disk. The
RAMDISK uses 8MB memory space to store the root file system
and the user disk is about 11MB for user’s program storage.
Therefore, user’s program and utility software must be saved in
the user disk space (/disk). Files saved to other directory will be
loss after power off !!!
Wireless LAN Configuration
Matrix 514 supports wireless LAN by using USB WLAN
adaptor which uses Ralink 2571 (rt73)controller. Please refer to
the website http://ralink.rapla.net for the supporting list of the
USB WLAN adaptor.
To configure the wireless LAN setting, please use command:
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid XXXX key YYYYYYYY mode MMMM
For infrastructure mode XXXX is the access point name and
YYYYYYYY is the encryption key and MMMM should be
managed
Devices list
The supported devices are shown at /dev directory. Following
list are most popular ones:
1.
ttyS0: serial console port
2.
ttyS1 to ttyS4: serial port 1 to port 4
3.
mmc to mmc2: SD memory card
4.
sda to sde: USB flash disk
5.
ttyUSB0 to ttyUSB1: USB RS-232 adaptor (fdti_sio.ko)
6.
rtc: Real Time Clock
7.
gpio: General Purpose digital I/O
8.
ttyACM0 and ttyACM1: USB Modem (CDC compliant)
Utility Software:
Matrix 514 includes busybox utility collection and Artila
utility software as follow:
Artila Utility Software:
The introduction of Artila utility software as follow:
1. update : update loader, kernel or root file system image.
Also use update —FORMAT to format user disk. Type
update—help to find the command usage
Note: Update can only operated under supervisor mode
(password : root)
2. setuart: configure serial port setting. An example show as
followed to configure port 1 as RS-485 interface with baud rate
921600. Please note only port 1 support 9-bit data at RS-485
3. gpioctl: gpioctl is used to control the programmable digital I/O
port located on the DB25 connector. Following example is to
configure DIO1 as digital input and DIO2 as digital output with
low output state.
How to make more utility software
You might also find utility software available on Artila CD
under /Matrix & iPAC/utility such as ntpclient, ssh, scp, bluez
and ssh-keygen. If you want, you can ftp or copy the utility
software to Matrix 514 user disk (/disk). Also you can use find
the source code and use the GNU Tool Chain to make the utility
by yourself.
Mounting External Storage Memory
To find out the device name of the external memory device
which plug into Matrix 514, you can use the command
/dmesg | grep sd
or
/dmesg | grep mmc
Type
mount /dev/sda1 to mount the USB disk and
mount /dev/mmc0 to mount SD card
Welcome Message
To modify the welcome message, user can use text edit to
modify the /etc/motd.
Web Page Directory
The web pages are placed at /home/httpd and the boa.conf
contains the boa web server settings. The home page name
should be index.html
Adjust the system time
To adjust the RTC time, you can follow the command
/date MMDDhhmmYYYY
where
MM=Month (01~12)
DD=Date (01~31)
hh=Hour
mm=minutes
YYYY= Year
/hwclock –w
To write the date information to RTC
User can also use NTP client utility in Artila CD to adjust the
RTC time.
/ntpclient [time server ip]
SSH Console
Matrix 514 support SSH. If you use Linux computer, you can
use SSH command to login Matrix 514. The configuration of
SSH and key are located at
/etc/config/ssh
The key generation program is available at Artila CD
/matrix & iPAC/utility/ssh_keygen
User can copy this program to Matrix 514 to generate the key
Install GNU Tool Chain
Find a PC with Linux 2.6.X Kernel installed and login as a root
user then copy the arm-linux-3.3.2.tar.gz to root directory of
PC. Under root directory, type following command to install the
Matrix 520 Tool Chain
#tar zxvf arm-linux-3.3.2.tar.gz
Getting started the Hello program
There are many example programs in Artila CD. To compile the
sample you can use the Make file to and type
make
To compile and link the library. Once done, use ftp command
ftp 192.168.2.127
And bin command to set transfer mode to binary
ftp>bin
to transfer the execution file to Matrix 520 user disk (/disk) and
use
chmod +x file.o
Change it to execution mode and
./file.o
to run the file
Daisy Chain connection
All the Ethernet ports of Matrix-514 can be
configured as a Bridge. The Bridge combines
one or more Ethernet interface and bridging
them under a single bridge interface. Therefore
Matrix-514 can use two Ethernet ports as a
bridge and make a daisy chain connection in
the net work.
To configure bridge function, please use
command brctl as follow:
/brctl addbr br0
/ifconfig eth1 0.0.0.0
/ifconfig eth2 0.0.0.0
/brctl addif br0 eth1
/brctl addif br0 eth2
/ifconfig br0 192.168.3.127 up
Using Daisy Chain connection, user can extend
the network without using switch as follow
