Powering up the board

In this section, you'll wire up and apply power to the board, but not actually boot it.


ARTIK 530 and 710 Boards

Check Jumpers

The Platform board (on the underside of the board with the ARTIK 7 module) has a set of jumpers JP1-JP4. These jumpers select whether power comes from the 5VDC adapter or the battery.

[2-3]: Normal. The 5VDC adapter powers the board, and charges the battery (if present)
          – Battery will not power board if adapter is unplugged

[1-2]: Battery. The battery powers the board, but must not be charged
          – If battery is present, disconnect the adapter
          – With battery disconnected, adapter may be connected to power the board

Whenever JP1-JP4 are in the [1-2] position, connect either a battery OR the 5VDC adapter. Battery damage can occur if both are connected!

Connect Board

  1. Connect the board to your computer using the USB cable. There are two micro-USB connectors on the board assembly; use the Debug USB on the bottom board as shown.

  2. Connect the antennas. One long antenna screws onto the Wi-Fi® connector on the board (directly over the USB cable you just connected), and the other screws onto the ZigBee radio connector.

    It is good practice to attach antennas before powering the board to prevent signal ringing from possibly damaging a radio circuit.

  3. Make sure the power switch on the development board is set to the off position.

  4. Plug the AC side of the 5V power supply into your power outlet, and the other end into the development board.

    Warning! Check that your power supply is 5V, not 12V. The plug ends are identical, so look at the adapter ratings plate before continuing!

  5. Slide the power switch on the development board rightward to the on position. Note that this is like putting the battery in your cell phone. It doesn't turn the board on, just gets it ready to turn on.

  6. Observe that the LEDs on the underside light up. Do not press the SW2 power button at this time – wait until the instructions in the next section say to do so.

Users are responsible for understanding and mitigating any heat issues they may encounter with their use of the Developer Board, including, for example and without limitation, heat emanating from exposed chips on the Developer Board.

ARTIK 520 and 1020 Boards

  1. Connect the long antennas to the appropriate connectors on the developer board as shown here.

    It is good practice to attach antennas before powering the board to prevent signal ringing from possibly damaging a radio circuit.

  2. Connect the board to your computer using the USB cable. There is only one micro-USB connector, which is the Debug USB. You should see the Rx and Tx LEDs light up.
  3. Make sure the power switch on the development board is set to the off position.

  5. Flip the power switch on the development board to the on position. Note that this is like putting the battery in your cell phone. It doesn't turn the board on, just gets it ready to turn on.

  6. Observe that the LED next to the "SW3 POWER" button lights up. Do not press SW3 at this time – wait until the instructions in the next section say to do so.
