Purpose and Audience


The purpose of this document is to provide all the necessary data to achieve hardware integration of the VN210 router within a data acquisition, sensor or communication interface board. This document is intended for hardware engineers who wish to incorporate the VN210 within a new hardware design. By definition the VN210 is a wireless modem that is pre-loaded with the Nivis ISA100.11a stack.

Pin-out and Interfaces


The following section presents the pin assignment of the VN210 and a brief description of the functionality associated with each pin. An external processing entity can communicate with the VN210 using either an UART interface (utilizing UART2) or an SPI interface. The UART1 port is dedicated to serial firmware download.

Comments Used as boot switch in order to boot different firmware images based on the position of the switch (future functionality). At present this pin should be held HIGH. Not Used Not Used WKU signal. Used by the application processor to wake up the VN210 processor. Not Used Not Used Not Used Reserved for future functionality. At present this pin should be held HIGH. Set ADC2-VREFH to Low and ADC2-VREFL to High and power the VN210 for a few seconds to erase the flash. After erasing the flash, set the ADC2-VREFH to High and ADC2-VREFL to Low.
