Main board

The main board on the SPYKEE is based on the CNX 111 from Wave Storm. http://www.wave-storm.com/prod_hard.php This is a 200MHz ARM9 processor with 802.11b, 802.11g and USB2.


Remote Console on Spykee

The pinout of the serial connector on spykee is from left to right when you look at the board from the rear..
The serial port settings are 38400 Baud 8-N-1.

Connector J2 : TX | RX | GND

You MUST use a Level converter if you want to plug the Serial Connector on your computer, because the levels of those pins are 3.3volts.. If you don't, you WILL DESTROY Spykee if you plug directly on your computer Serial Port!!!

The first Circuit in this Pdf can be used: http://www.delta.ee/xoro/_Reanimation_/mt1389%20serial%20interface%20gallery.pdf
