  • Reset Signal
    Related signal: nReset
    This is an active-low open-drain output signal, which is pulled up to 3.3V by 100K ohm resistor. It can be controlled by software. The image below shows the nReset output drive.

Software interface

  • UART
    The extension caps serial port (UART) interface can be controlled through the software port COM3:.
  • Power control
    To control power out of 5 Volt (Pin 3 and Pin 5) use functions aExp5vSetPower and aExp5vGetPower.
    To control power out of 3.3 Volt (Pin 7 and Pin 9) use functions aExp3dot3vSetPower and aExp3dot3vGetPower.
    To control nRESET (Pin 10) use functions aExpRSTSet and aExpRSTGet.
    All functions you’ll find in the latest Nautiz X8 SDK.
