Getting Started with Base HAT + Telit Modules

This section will lead you through the hardware setup of the Base HAT with Telit modules.

Before we jump into the tutorial, let us check all the items required for this is available with us and prepare our hardware.

Hardware Prerequisites

Most of these are the parts you will receive when you order the Cellular Modem Kit with Telit modules. The goes as follows:

Note 1: Make sure your SIM is registered and active on the Sixfab Connect.

Note 2: Optionally, you can use Triple Port u.FL Antenna as an antenna or any other combination of LTE and GNSS antennas.

Hardware Setup

1. Attach the Telit LE910C1 or ME910C1-WW mini PCIe module to the HAT.

2. Attach the antenna to the mini PCIe module.

Make sure the right antenna is connected to the right port. Attach LTE full band PCB antenna/LTE connector of the LTE-GNSS dual antenna to the main Antenna interface/diversity antenna interface & GPS Antenna portion goes to the GNSS antenna interface.

3. Attach 40 pin header to the Base HAT that comes with the HAT and insert the Sixfab Connect SIM to Base HAT.

4. Now attach the HAT to the Raspberry Pi.

5. Finally connect the micro-USB cable to the HAT and Raspberry Pi.

Checking Driver

Then open up a terminal and run the commands below. Expected outputs are as follow:
