TELIT LE910-NA1 LTESupplier number:
Telit LE910-EU1 LTE CAT-1 Developer kit is a complete solution to start developing for 10654 Telit LE910-NA1 LTE CAT-1 LGA
It contains the Telit Evaluation Kit (EVK2) and a Telit LE910-NA1 adapter board.
The Telit Evaluation Kit (EVK2) provides a robust, future-proof and flexible environment to streamline application development for all Telit module families and cellular standards like LTE (Cat M1, Cat NB1, Cat 1, Cat3, Cat 4, Cat 6), 3G and 2G.
The kit includes a motherboard and an adapter board where the target module is connected. This concept allows the EVK2 to be used across various form factors and product generations, both present and future.
The motherboard includes the basic interfaces such as power input, SIM card holder, audio monitor outputs, RS-232, and USB; as well as a Reset button and power switch. The circuit implemented in the EVK2 motherboard is based on the recommended reference design for the module's peripheral components and I/O connections.
This document describes the integration steps of the cellular modules USB endpoints in Linux systems.
The present document provides a guideline to connect logically the physical serial ports of the module to the services supported by the module itself (GNSS, AppZone, etc.). It is up to the user to configure the module in suitable way to avoid hardware/software resources conflicts. With the generic "ports/services arrangement" expression is intended each possible set of logical connections regarding physical ports and Service Access Points supported by the used module (e.g. AT0, AT1, AT2, etc.).

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:
