I ordered the BAENBIOTBG96SHIELD   ARDUINO COMPATIBILITY  shield.

It came with NO GNSS SMA connector, and no schematics, even no info about which pins are going from the BG96 to the Arduino headers.

This is the worst DEV kit I ever saw!

Does anybody has the schematics, header pin infi and info how to use this in combination with an Arduino UNO please?

Thanks and kind regards,

Wim

Wim, have you checked out the Hardware Users Guide at http://cloudconnectkits.org/product/telus-lte-m-iot-starter-kit

there is also a lot of information at https://www.element14.com/community/blogs/JimFlynn/2018/09/25/using-the-...

What are you trying to do? If you could provide some information on your efforts, I may be able to help.

The schematic is at: https://github.com/Avnet-Silica-team/NBIoTBG96-HW/blob/master/BAENBIOTBG96SHIELD_RSR1157B-SCHEMA.pdf

 

There are a couple of switches you have to change to work on a normal Arduino header working (they are mentioned in a note on the schematic). I also mention it in my BLOG at https://www.element14.com/community/groups/mbed/blog/2018/09/21/implementing-an-azure-iot-client-using-the-mbed-os-part-2

Hi, thanks for your info. 

My goal is to test it with arduino UNO. Is there any code available?

I did not find any links to the schematics before, so thanks for your link.

The board came with missing SMA connector for GPS , so I need to ask for a new board.

 

Thanks,

 

Wim

That I am aware of, no one has tried to connect the BG96 with an arduino UNO, only ST development boards that are listed with the kits.  Can you send me a link where you ordered the board from as I can't find a link for BAENBIOTBG96SHIELD anywhere.
