Interfaces

This page describes general information and interface location of SmartAP AIRLink.

Connectors pinout

Left side

  • Power input with voltage & current monitoring

  • AI Mission Computer micro SD card

  • Flight Controller micro SD card

  • AI Mission Computer USB Type-C

  • PPM input, SBUS output, RSSI monitor

POWER - JST GH SM10B-GHS-TB

CPU SD card - microSD

CPU USB - USB Type C

RC Connector - JST GH SM06B-GHS-TB

FMU SD card - microSD

Right side

  • Ethernet port with power output

  • Telemetry port

  • Second GPS port

  • Spare I2C / UART port

  • Flight controller USB Type-C

  • Micro SIM Card

  • HDMI input port (payload camera)

ETHERNET - JST GH SM08B-GHS-TB

Ethernet interface is decoupled with capacitors. Ethernet cable should be twisted to reduce EMI noise. Shorter cables are recommended for increased performance and higher bandwidth of the interface.

TEL3 - JST GH SM06B-GHS-TB

I2C3 / UART4 - JST GH SM06B-GHS-TB

GPS2 - JST GH SM06B-GHS-TB

AIRLink has integrated 1.5KΩ pull-up resistors for all I2C lines. No external pull-up resistors required.

FMU USB - USB Type C

SIM Card - micro SIM

HDMI - mini HDMI

Front side

  • Main GNSS and compass port

  • Main telemetry port

  • CSI camera input

  • CAN 1

  • CAN 2

TEL1 - JST GH SM06B-GHS-TB

GPS1 - JST GH SM10B-GHS-TB

CAN1 - JST GH SM04B-GHS-TB

CAN2 - JST GH SM04B-GHS-TB

AIRLink has integrated 120Ω CAN bus termination resistor. To comply with ISO 11898 user the second 120Ω resistor at the other end of the bus.

CAMERA - FPC 30 pin, 0.5mm pitch

Rear side

  • SBUS input

  • 16 PWM output channels

  • 2x LTE antenna sockets in 4G, 4x LTE antenna sockets in 5G

  • WiFi antenna socket (AP & Station modes)
