Neo_M660 GPRS Module Demo Board User Guide

1 Overview
M660 demo board provides a series of peripheral interfaces, including main power supply
interface, UART interfaces for commissioning and software download, and SIM card interface.
You can perform commissioning after connecting to power supply and serial ports. This document
describes only module commissioning. For details about software update, please refer to module
update document.

2 Interfaces
This demo board can be used once connected through power and serial cables.

3.4 M5X0-PWR Board

Refer to the silk


print label.

The above figure shows an M5X0-PWR board, which supplies 3.8V/0.6A power for the module
and outputs 3.3 V CMOS level TXD and RXD for the communication between the computer and
the module and software update. It is connected to the M660 demo board through 4-pin cables,
which have been soldered to the power board in a sequence of red, black, yellow, and green at one
end and should be inserted into the plug of the demo board at the other end. There are two pins on
the power board and they can control the power supply of the module.
Among the 4-pin cables:
 Green: TXD, output, 2.85 V CMOS level
 Yellow: RXD, input, CMOS level, 3.1 V maximum
 Black: Ground
 Red: VBAT, 3.6 V to 4.3 V, 3.9 V is recommended

If you want to use this power board to commission the module through serial port on a computer,
install a driver for USB to serial (PL2303 Windows Driver). If you want to use an MCU to control
the demo board, you also need to use the 4-pin cables.

3.5 Commissioning
Perform product commissioning directly on a computer through the USB interface. The power
board and demo board are connected as shown in the following figure.
