Serial console for DNS-313

In some cases itīs very helpful connecting to your DNS-313 with a serial connection. E.g. to explore, what happens at boot time, when nothing else goes right.

Here is the pict. of PCB DNS-313 bottom side. (yes, i have seen better pictures...)

http://msbd.de/100_1183a.jpg

The serial port is top-right from the IC Storlink SL5312, seen as 4 small solderig pads. Pin 1 is at left (square pad).

Pin 1 - Vcc 3,3V (not needed)
Pin 2 - TxD - must connect to pin 6 of the data cable
Pin 3 - RxD - must connect to pin 7 of the data cable
Pin 4 - GND - must connect to pin 8 of the data cable

For connection to the PC we need an simple USB data cable e.g. for the Nokia handy 3100/3120/...6100/...
It should be compatible with Nokiaīs CA-42 data cable.
Having an built-in 3,3V-serial-to-USB-converter. Costs less than 5,-€, have a look at ebay...
Also you can use a DKU-5-compatible Cable for the PCīs serial port. 

- Cut the cable behind the connector to plug into the handy.
- find out, whose coloured wires goes to the pins 6, 7 and 8. of the handy-connector:

look here: http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-Nokia/ … nout.shtml
or here:     http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhonesCables/ … nout.shtml

The cable may have some more wires we donīt need in this case.

Device drivers for Win are on the delivered CD, drivers for Linux donīt needed. Seems, Linux  (e.g. Debian and SuSE) knows this device by default.

Your console programm must set to: 19200-8-n-1-Xon/Xoff

...and good luck!

Re: Serial console for DNS-313

why so complicated? The CA-42 you can get on every handy-store around the corner...
Not for more than 10,-€!
And with max232 - consider the 3,3V-level!

Re: Serial console for DNS-313

and consider the tiny soldering pads - must have a steady hand.
Easy to brick a box...

Which cable you use? I use a cable from phone siemens.
Which program you use for connect? Some cable-drivers in Windows require additional speed settings in the registry.
Maybe you garble RX and TX?
