TS-4100 Standalone Mode

From Technologic Systems Manuals

The TS-4100 features the ability to operate in Standalone Mode. This allows the TS-4100 to be fully functional right out of the box without the need for a SoM baseboard. Standalone Mode provides for a compact, low power device with optional soldered-down WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE interfaces, and features a combination of soldered down eMMC as well as a microSD card socket.

Note that when used in Standalone Mode, the full feature set of the TS-4100 will not be accessible as many of these require connection to a SoM baseboard. See the TS-4100 product page for a complete list of compatible baseboards and links to their manuals.

The TS-4100-SRW2I and the TS-4100-SRW8I models feature a daughter card interface at the HD1 expansion header, this 2x8 pin header offers: 5 VDC input, 3.3 VDC output, DIO x5, SPI, and I2C interfaces.

Booting up the TS-4100 in Standalone Mode

In order to supply power to the TS-4100 in Standalone Mode, a 5 V power supply will be required to power the unit. This can be supplied via the micro USB AB port labeled "P1", or 5 VDC input to the input pins of the HD1 expansion header. See the Booting up the board section for more info.

Get a console in Standalone Mode

To obtain console in Standalone Mode connect a micro USB Type B cable to the micro USB type B port labeled "P2", with the other end going to a USB port on the workstation that is hosting the debug console, see the Getting Started section. The P2 USB interface presents a USB virtual serial port via the supervisory microcontroller, see the Get a Console section for more info.
