Huawei ME909u-523D - 4G/LTE- 3G/HSPA+ DC LGA Module - US

Article Number: 10103
Manufacturer: Huawei
Supplier number: 55010037

The Huawei ME909u-523D is an LTE module with a 145-pin LGA form factor, supporting seven LTE FDD bands.

The Huawei ME909u-523D is replacing the ME909u-121.

This module is part of Huawei's new LGA family, 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.

This document provides instructions for storage, packing, SMT assembly, and rework of the HUAWEI LGA module, and serves as a guide to secondary assembly of the HUAWEI LGA module. Meanwhile, this document provides PCB design guide for module assembly requirements of producibility and maintainability
The HUAWEI LGA module has two types of packaging:

PCB145-3030M: 145 pin LGA with a dimension of 30 mm × 30 mm
PCB114-3020M: 114 pin LGA with a dimension of 30 mm × 20 mm

The purpose of this document is to describe some hardware specification which is useful to develop a product with HUAWEI LGA module supporting PCM (Pulse- Coded Modulation). This document is intended for HUAWEI customers who are integrators and about to implement their applications by using our module.

The HUAWEI LGA module supports the PCM, which can be used for the module to transmit and receive digital audio data. Linear and μ-law codecs are supported. The HUAWEI LGA module uses the PCM interface as part of the audio front end; it easily allows for an external codec to be used instead of the internal codec. As an example, through the PCM you could connect a HUAWEI LGA module to a Bluetooth device.

The HUAWEI LGA module has one PCM port. Please refer to the Hardware Guide of the module that you are in use to know the PIN number of the PCM ports.

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.

Question

What Linux kernel modules and configs are commonly used for communicating with cellular modules over their USB interface?

Solution

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:
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_GENERIC
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_WWAN
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_OPTION
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_QUALCOMM
CONFIG_USB_ACM

Configs for Modem/PPP support:
CONFIG_PPP
CONFIG_PPP_BSDCOMP
CONFIG_PPP_DEFLATE
CONFIG_PPP_FILTER
CONFIG_PPP_MPPE
CONFIG_PPP_MULTILINK
CONFIG_PPPOE
CONFIG_PPP_ASYNC
CONFIG_PPP_SYNC_TTY

Configs for USB network drivers:
CONFIG_USB_USBNET
CONFIG_USB_NET_QMI_WWAN
CONFIG_USB_NET_CDCETHER
CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST
CONFIG_USB_NET_CDC_NCM
CONFIG_USB_NET_HUAWEI_CDC_NCM
CONFIG_USB_NET_CDC_MBIM

Please relate to the Techship product specific web pages for vendor specific Linux integration guides.

Below is a selection of kernel commits relating to cellular module support in Linux kernels:
qmi_wwan: Add support for Fibocom NL678 series
qmi_wwan: Added support for Telit LN940 series
qmi_wwan: Added support for Fibocom NL668 series
USB: serial: option: add support for GosunCn ME3630 RNDIS mode
USB: serial: option: add support for Simcom SIM7500/SIM7600 RNDIS mode
USB: serial: option: add Simcom SIM7500/SIM7600 (MBIM mode)
USB: serial: option: add Fibocom NL678 series
USB: serial: option: add Telit LN940 series
USB: serial: option: add Fibocom NL668 series
USB: serial: option: add GosunCn ZTE WeLink ME3630
qmi_wwan: apply SET_DTR quirk to the SIMCOM shared device ID

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.
