MicroMod Asset Tracker Carrier Board Hookup Guide
Now that we are familiar with the hardware on the Asset Tracker Carrier Board, it's time to assemble it with your chosen MicroMod Processor and get it connected to your computer.
Inserting Your Processor
With the M.2 MicroMod connector, connecting your processor board is a breeze. Simply match up the key on your processor's beveled edge connector to the key on the M.2 connector. At a 45° angle, insert the processor board to the M.2 connector. The processor board will stick up at an angle as seen here:
Once the board is in the socket, gently press the Processor down, grab the set screw and tighten it with a Phillip's head screwdriver:
With the Processor secure, your assembled MicroMod Asset Tracker system should look similar to the image below!
Connecting Everything Up
Now is a good time to insert the Nano SIM from your service provider. Make sure the orientation matches the symbol on the PCB; the edge with the trimmed corner is inserted first.
The LTE and GNSS connections simply screw on to the appropriate SMA connectors. Make sure you check the labeling on the board and connect them the right way round. (LTE is on the Left.)
With your processor inserted and secured it's time to connect your MicroMod Asset Tracker Carrier Board to your computer using the USB-C connector. Depending on which processor you choose and which drivers you already have installed, you may need to install drivers for your board. Refer to your Processor's Hookup Guide for detailed instructions on how to install them.
