FAQ

Can I flash my IG60 Linux version to convert it into an AWS version or likewise?

Unfortunately, the two IG60 version cannot be converted or swapped, so the Laird Linux image won't run on the AWS gateway and vice versa.

Where can I find Python example codes to leverage with my IG60-BL654 which shows how to interact with BT510?

We do have a dedicated Github page page that exposes Python examples code which undertake common operations between a BT510 and a BL654 loaded with smartBASIC AT Commands Interface.

It especially includes :

  • Sensor configuration
  • Analysing advertisements
  • Reading and decoding BT510 event logs
  • ... and many more!

These codes can be easily leveraged for any real world applications that would include BT510 mated with the IG60-BL654 or any other custom gateways.

You can find more information on the following page : https://github.com/LairdCP/BT510-Python

How do I exit Bluetooth DTM direct test mode on the BL654 module in the IG60 Laird Linux

DTM functionality is integrated into our SmartBASIC firmware preloaded on the BL654 in the IG60 Laird Linux. Activation of DTM is done by AT+DTM command as described in this application note. Instead of using our UwTerminalX program you can use e.g., microcom to connect to the BL654 and communicate (microcom -s 115200 -p /dev/sttyS2, exit microcom with ctrl-x). After that DTM commands can be exercised which in fact are binary commands sent at 19200 baud instead of 115200 used for SmartBASIC interactive mode. However, most commands are composed of non-ascii bytes and hence it is not possible to enter these into microcom or other terminal programs. The below sequence shows how to send the exit-DTM-mode command from the Linux console as an example:

Set the serial port parameters to 19200/8N1:

stty -F /dev/ttyS2 19200 cs8 -parenb -cstopb

Echo a two-byte command (0x3f, 0xfe bytes) into the serial port device:

echo -ne "\x3f\xfe" > /dev/ttyS2

The -n switch will suppress the newline at string end and -e will allow for escape’ing of hex numbers. That way it will send the required bytes 0x3f and 0xff directly and raw into the serial port device.

Other DTM commands could be sent in the same way by replacing \x3f... with different hex numbers.

How do I disable the changing of the MAC address after each reboot for the IG60 and 60-SOM DVK running off an SD card with Laird Linux

You need to boot into Linux and after Login log in issue the command

fw_setenv ethaddr <desired MAC address> 

for example:

fw_setenv ethaddr AABBCCDDEEFF

and reboot

You can read out the address previously set with:

fw_printenv ethaddr

Is there an external IO pin on the IG60 Laird Linux I can use for my purposes?

Yes, there is one pin (4) on the power supply connector that can either be configured as an input or output.

The same pin can be connected to the AD converter of the IG60s host processor by software.

Consult Lairds application note "Configuring external I/O pin of the IG60 Laird Linux variant as input or output" to configure pin4 and this tutorial to use the AD converter on the host processor:

https://lairdcp.github.io/guides/60-som-dvk-docs/1.0/ad-converter-tutor…

How can I update the smartBASIC app on the BL654 in my IG60-BL654 Laird Linux?

There is a python script on the IG60-BLE654 LL developers SD card image called

btpa_utility.py

This can be used to upload, rename and delete sB apps to and from the IG60-BL654.

It can also be used to list the directory content and sending AT commands to the BL654.

How do I find out which clients are connected to the soft AP I created using my Laird Wifi module with Linux

Once you have created the soft AP on your Linux system and have successfully connected clients to the soft AP you can issue the command

# iw wlan0 station dump

to get a list of connected clients.

Note: the interface name (here: wlan0) might be different in your system.

How can I talk to the BL654 BLE module inside the IG60 Gateway?

With access to the IG60 Laird Linux console you can start the terminal program "microcom" to issue AT commands to the integrated BL654 BLE module.
The BLE modulel istens on /dev/ttyS2.


# microcom
/dev/ttyS2

To exit microcom use ctrl-x.

 

How do I set up an open hotspot using Network Manager?

You can use the Network Manager command line interface to create an open hotspot using this command:

nmcli con add con-name open_hotspot ifname wlan0 type wifi ssid yourSSID mode ap wifi.band bg wifi.channel 6 ipv4.method shared

 

Can I update the firmware of the BL654 module inside my IG60-BL654 Laird Linux gateway?

Yes. There is a python script on the IG60-BL654 LL developer SD card image called
btpa_firmware_loader.py

This can be used to upload a new firmware to the BL654 inside IG60-BL654 LL.

How to Exit a smartBASIC $autorun$ Application on the IG60-BL654 Gateway

There exist pre-defined GPIOs in the IG60 to control the BL654 module, which can be found under /sys/devices/platform/gpio:

  • bt_nautorun: If set to 0 (low) autorun is active and and $autorun$ application will start after power up/reset and if set to 1 (high) autorun will be disabled.
  • card_nreset: Setting to 0 (low) asserts BL654 reset and 1 (high) releases reset.

To exit an $autorun$ application nAUTORUN needs to be set high followed by a module reset.

echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/gpio/bt_nautorun/value (disables autorun)
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/gpio/card_nreset/value (assert reset)
echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/gpio/card_nreset/value (release reset)
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/gpio/bt_nautorun/value (re-enable autorun)


You should now be able to connect to the BL654 through e.g. microcom with access to the smartBASIC interactive mode:

microcom -s 115200 /dev/ttyS2


You can now use e.g. AT&F* to clear the flash file system before loading a new smartBASIC app to the module with the above Python script. (Note: CTRL-x will exit microcom).

Note: You can always check the current state of the above GPIOs with

cat /sys/devices/platform/gpio/.../value

What is IP rating

IP stands for Ingress Protection. Its a standard we use to check the sealability of a product once it is installed.

It is composed as IP## , where first digit is for dust/solid objects and the 2nd digit, is for liquids.
Here is the meaning for each numerical code:

First Digit Description
0 No protection
1 Ingress of solid object diameter 50 mm is protected
2 Ingress of solid object diameter 12.5 mm is protected
3 Ingress of solid object diameter 2.5 mm is totally protected
4 Ingress of solid object diameter 1.0 mm is totally protected
5 Protected against harmful dust
6 Totally protected against dust

2nd Digit Description
0 No protection no protection against liquid object No test
1 Protection against water drop vertically
2 Protection against water drop 15° Tilt from its normal position
3 Protection against water spray 60° from the vertical direction
4 Protection from water splash from all direction
5 Protection from water jets from all direction
6 Protection from strong water jets from all direction
7 Protection from water dip 1 m depth water for 30 min
8 Protection from water sink should be decided between customer and manufacturer

How do I connect my IG60 with LairdLinux to a console on a PC without serial port?

On the LairdLinux versions of the IG60 (455-00006, 455-00076, 455-00084 or 455-00088) you can access the console port by either attaching a USB to Serial adapter to the IG60 USB port and a null modem cable to your computer or by attaching a USB to serial cable to the IG60 USB port and a null modem adapter to your computer.

Also on the IG60-Serial (455-00006) or the IG60-Serial+LTE (455-00084), you can connect a null modem cable to the serial port on the IG60 and your computer.  

Note: You are not able to access the console on a GreenGrass version of the IG60 (455-00008, 455-00081, 455-00085 or 455-00089).
