TECHSHIP IS A GLOBAL SUPPLIER OF WIRELESS COMPONENTS
The Huawei ME909u-523D Mini PCI Express is an LTE module with a 145-pin LGA form factor mounted on a Mini PCI Express board, supporting seven LTE FDD bands.
The Huawei ME909u-523D is replacing the ME909u-121.
This module is part of Huawei's new family of modules, including MU509 (HSDPA), MU609 (HSPA+) and ME909 (LTE) which are all pin-to-pin compatible to enable a clear and easy path for future integration. This makes the integration of any one of these modules very future-proof.
With their ultra-compact design and extended operating temperature range, ME909 and it's siblings are the perfect platform for any M2M application.

Communications through universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART) serial ports is convenient and reliable. UART serial ports are widely adopted in Huawei modules. This design guide describes the serial port specifications of Huawei modules and provides recommended design schemes for peripheral circuits. When designing UART serial ports for Huawei modules, customers can refer to this document.
Most of Huawei modules provide 8-wire serial ports with flow control. These 8-wire serial ports can also be used as 2-wire or 4-wire serial ports.

This archive contains the Android Radio Interface Layer and the related release notes
It works for android 2.XX to 4.XX.
This RAR archive contains the setup file for the Huawei Windows drivers version 4.25.45.08
The Ulog is a log capturing tool for all Huawei modules.
It can work on PCs and various embedded platforms, and supports different operating systems (OS), such as Windows 7, Linux, and Android.
For Windows there's a graphical user interface available. In order to capture logs with Ulog the modules unique shell lock code need to be acquired based on the IMEI.
This package contains Huawei's Update WIzard for Linux, which can be used to update firmware versions on different modules.
This archive contains the Huawei ME909u-523D Firmware V.11.430.66.00.00 updater for Windows and the release notes for the firmware changes.
What Linux kernel modules and configs are commonly used for communicating with cellular modules over their USB interface?
Most cellular modules can be supported in Linux by using som of the in-kernel drivers. The physical data interface to the host Linux system is usually done over USB which enumerates a set of different endpoints/interfaces. A set of serial interfaces for Modem/PPP, AT commands, NMEA location data and chipset debug information are almost always available in all configurations.
In addition some type of network endpoint/interface are also available and exposed. This can vary between manufacturers and chipset vendors and can also commonly be configurable by using USB configuration mode switching or through vendor specific AT commands.
Recommended kernel configurations to enable are listed bellow. Many cellular modules base their Linux support on these modules and drivers. Once included in the kernel build, the USB interfaces will be detected and bound correctly out-of-the-box or after applying source code patches to the driver modules.
Configs for USB serial drivers:
Configs for Modem/PPP support:
Configs for USB network drivers:
Please relate to the Techship product specific web pages for vendor specific Linux integration guides.

If you use any of the listed cellular modules, drivers and specified USB modes in the commits above, ensure that your kernel version already include the patch or apply it to your build.
How to collect initial diagnostics data and logs for Huawei cellular modules needed when requesting Techship technical support?
In order to troubleshoot and solve a technical problem, we ask you to please provide information about your system and logs from the related Huawei module when creating a technical support ticket.
Problem description of what exact problem is and in what precise situations present
Describe the host system:
-Hardware (system board, peripherals...)
-Operating system and detailed versions (E.g. Windows, Linux release, kernel...)
-Drivers and driver versions
Identify the precise details of cellular module found on label:
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
(For RMA returns the IMEI number is required also)
If you are running on a Linux based system, please capture the terminal logs bellow:
ls -l /dev/serial/by-id
ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices
The logs from module firmware can be acquired by accessing one of the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces accepting AT commands. (In Windows this is the PC UI serial interface). Send the following commands to module and capture the text output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.
The support ticket can be created after login at: https://techship.com/technical_support/
