Module for interfacing with Inmarsat's IDP Plug-N-Play device.
Inmarsat IDP Plug-N-Play Dongle
The Plug-N-Play dongle is a small programmable single board computer in a black box intended to be able to quickly demonstrate and prototype Internet-of-Things use cases enabled by satellite messaging connectivity.
The dongle connects directly to an ST2100 satellite modem manufactured by ORBCOMM and provides access to:
- Serial communications using AT commands
- Modem event notification via discrete output pin to a callback function
- Modem reset via modem reset input pin
- Microcontroller reset event via external reset output pin
- 1 pulse-per-second (PPS) from GNSS timing via discrete output pin
The dongle supports connection to an external customer-supplied microcontroller using RS-232 via the developer breakout cable.
mode can be configured as:
transparentpass through serial commands to a separate third party microcontroller (default hardware configuration)
masteract as the application microcontroller (default when using this Python module)
proxyact as a proxy intercepting responses from the modem to a third party microcontroller
pip install idppnpdongle
import asyncio from idppnpdongle import PnpDongle dongle = PnpDongle() modem = dongle.modem response = asyncio.run(modem.command('AT'))
